Publisher's Summary

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?

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

Best book I’ve read by Mesu Andrews!

IMHO this is the best of all the many books I’ve read by Mesu Andrews! I believe to understand my Bible, it’s so helpful to understand the era & it’s people from the time when it was written. In The Shadow of Jezebel really helps with that idea. In this book, I particularly appreciated that it was not a victimized female in inexplicable angst from cover to cover. This well written book shows us a woman that was wooed and healed by Yahweh & her husband, Jehoiada. She also used her brain so that her actions & reactions made sense. It was encouraging & so easy to be immersed into this story. I could watch the imagery in my minds eye so clearly. WELL DONE MS ANDREWS I’m Looking forward to another!

Good book with lots of history

This book is full of Israel’s history, sometimes a little complicated but very well written fiction. The reader it’s very professional with believable voices and good expression.

Good story, technical difficulties with recording during playback

The story was very engaging but the last few chapters kept running into technical issues and didn’t want to play smoothly. Very frustrating when you’re listening to a book. Otherwise I highly recommend.

I love Mesu Andrews books!!

She makes the Bible account come to life in such a way that I can get my own spiritual growth application. I may have read these Bible chapters numerous times and can not see an application for me in my day but Mesu points it out.
