Title: In The Shadow of Jezebel
Author: Mesu Andrews
Publisher: Revell Publishing 2014

Synopsis:

In a kingdom controlled by cruel and manipulative women, one princess will discover the power of truth and love.

Trained as a priestess in the temple of Baal, Princess Jehosheba strives to please the demanding Queen Athaliah, daughter of Jezebel. But when a mysterious letter from the dead prophet Elijah predicts doom for the royal household, Jehosheba realizes that the dark arts she practices reach far beyond the realm of earthly governments. 

Forced to marry Yahweh’s high priest in order to further Athaliah and Jezebel’s power plays, Jehosheba enters the unfamiliar world of Yahweh’s Temple. Can her new husband show her the truth and love she craves? And can Jehosheba overcome her fear and save the family–and the nation–she loves?

With deft skill, Mesu Andrews brings the Old Testament to life, revealing a fascinating story of the power of unconditional love.

Review:

Jezebel jumps to life with the writing skill of Mesu Andrews. The author skillfully weaves history, Biblical story and fiction into a book I could not put down.

Jezebel becomes a living breathing person instead of a poorly known woman mentioned in the Bible.

5/5 Stars

I received a copy of this book from Graf-Martin on behalf of Revell Publishing.
