In the Shadow of Jezebel by Mesu Andrews (Review)


Princess Jehosheba wants nothing more than to please the harsh and demanding Queen Athaliah, daughter of the notorious Queen Jezebel. Her work as a priestess in the temple of Baal seems to do the trick. 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 beyond the realm of earthly governments. To further Athaliah and Jezebel's strategies, she is forced to marry Yahweh's high priest and 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?


I GIVE THIS BOOK:1 star1 star1 star1 star


MY THOUGHTS:
In the Shadow of Jezebel is the first book I've read by Mesu Andrews, but I'll definitely be reading more by her soon. She has a way of bringing Biblical fiction to life which makes the characters and what they did stick with you. Since this book was about a part of the Bible that was always hard for me to follow and then remember who did what, I think that's wonderful!

If you enjoy Biblical fiction you should definitely give In the Shadow of Jezebel a read.

I received a complimentary copy of this book to review. I was asked to give my honest opinion of the book - which I have done.
