Publisher's Summary

In this epic Biblical narrative, ideal for fans of The Bible miniseries, a young woman taken into the prophet Isaiah's household rises to capture the heart of the future king. 

Isaiah adopts Ishma, giving her a new name - Zibah, delight of the Lord - thereby ensuring her royal pedigree. Ishma came to the prophet's home, devastated after watching her family destroyed and living as a captive. But as the years pass, Zibah's lively spirit wins Prince Hezekiah's favor, a boy determined to rebuild the kingdom his father has nearly destroyed. But loving this man will awake in her all the fears and pain of her past and she must turn to the only One who can give life, calm her fears, and deliver a nation. 

"Andrews (The Pharaoh’s Daughter) offers her unique brand of in-depth Bible knowledge and storytelling flair...[she] is gifted at bringing the past to life...." (Publishers Weekly, starred review)

Critic Reviews

ECPA best seller

“Danger, dark schemes, and political intrigue wrestle against truth, valor, and determined obedience to Yahweh in this compelling tale of Hezekiah - the boy who would be king - and a beautiful but broken orphan girl taken in by Isaiah, the Lord’s prophet. While alternately angered and devastated by the faithlessness of Yahweh’s people in one chapter, in the next I was revitalized and filled with hope in the unfolding prophecies and mercy of our Sovereign God. Andrews has woven a love story, a beautifully written novel to savor, and a reminder that despite our fallen humanity, God’s best is yet to come.” (Cathy Gohlke, Christy Award-winning author of Until We Find Home)

“Mesu Andrews brings the prophet Isaiah to life with her usual brilliance at weaving deep historical threads together with the story of a little-known woman of the Bible. Isaiah’s Daughter is an excellent reminder that the truth of God’s words will be proven, even when His people cannot see through the veil of suffering to the ultimate victory.” (Connilyn Cossette, CBA best-selling author of the Out from Egypt series)

“Epic drama, adventure, love, treachery - Isaiah’s Daughter is all of that and more in this latest stellar novel by Mesu Andrews. The author brings to life Judah’s queen, the lovely Hephzibah, infusing each page with heart-stopping emotion and a pure romantic love for her friend and king, Hezekiah, that touched my soul. When I finished reading, I could only marvel at the novel’s depth and breadth and how Andrews portrayed this daughter of a prophet rising to the greatness of God’s promise, resilient in a time of disobedience. Keeping faith with Yahweh amid war and death and pestilence might be the only means to survive. A thoroughly catch-your-breath kind of experience in an impressive body of work, Isaiah’s Daughter is a story fans of biblical fiction will love!” (Kate Breslin, award-winning author of For Such a Time

His Light & Prophecy Shine Through This Story!

The story is incredible in its helping me to engage with God’s Word. I love that the scriptures are followed even though they are scattered through different books of the Bible. I have not understood the continuity and God’s ways in which He works until knitting His Word together in a somewhat fictional story that gives me greater understanding of His awesomeness yet His yearning for relationship with each of us in our broken state. I love the understanding that prophecy is not once and done, but many times whispers of what has been or what is to come.
Thank you for increasing my sensitivity to Our Father and His plan!

Too much fantasy

Partway through I realized it felt very flat and was more fantastical and a story of romance than anything. Not very edifying for a retelling of the Bible — especially when seemingly very unrealistic.

Isaiah’s Daughter

Hezekiah has always been one of my favorite biblical characters. The story Mesu built around the scriptures and her research was most enjoyable. Thank you for your hard work. May the Lord bless you abundantly.

A delightful listening

I hung on to every word as if I was there. my heart moved with sadness and joy and back to sadness at the very end. I almost felt like hugging both Ezee and Zebah. I got so angry at the lost of Zebah's first baby but my heart rejoiced at the sound of a crying baby boy. such love these couples shared and their obedience to God. well, they paid the price when they disobeyed God and yet, God's mercy endured and His promises were manifested.
I am a single mother of 3 boys. Never married and for my disobedience I spent my years alone. well, not along for God has always been there for me. after having my 3rd baby boy, I knew I had to make a change in my life. I felt this change was a way for him to move in my life. I redecorated my life to him and never looked back. still unmarried but I believe God's timing is perfect. my boys are all grown. my oldest is 29 with 2 children of his own, my middle son is 25 married but no children yet and my 3rd son is a delight and keeping me young. soon to be a man. God is my refuge and strength.

I could not take my headphones out! I’m always looking for good Historical Christian authors and I definitely found one! Huge props to the narrator as well.
I can’t wait to read/listen to more from this author!
