Publisher's Summary

Lynne Austin has won three Christy Awards for her inspiring historical novels, which include Candle in the Darkness.

The second book in her Chronicles of the Kings series, Song of Redemption, is a retelling of the life of Hezekiah, King of Judah from 716 to 687 BC. After years of idolatry, Judah's temple has been cleansed and Hezekiah has brought God's law back to his people. But when he incurs the wrath of the barbaric Assyrians, he will need help from a surprising source.

If You Liked Gods and Kings, Keep Going With This

As I said in my review of Gods and Kings, this book is also a good read for guys as well as for the ladies. I have read the first 3 books in this series, and I have found all three to be well written and very engaging. You won't get bored by these books; that is for sure!

The temple is rebuilt.

What did you love best about Song of Redemption?

How King Hezzikiah grew to be such a man of God. I loved the push and pull between Shebnah and Eliakim. The stories of the women showed such strength and the willingness to serve others.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

I would have preferred a male voice or maybe a male and female for the different characters but it was good.

Any additional comments?

Read all 5 books on this topic for a great overview of this time period.

Another Excellent Book by Lynn Austin

Once again I truly enjoyed this book. Once I started it, I could not put it down. It really makes the Bible come alive for you. Mrs. Austin did a fantastic job on the development of the story from Biblical and historical facts.

Fascinating and Inspirational

I won't write a long review since I wrote a long one on the whole series for the first book. This covers Hezekiah's Tunnel and I found it fascinating. Especially to think that something so ancient is still in use today. Amazing. I really enjoyed this book and the ones before and after it. I did find them uplifting and inspirational. I have liked books, two this one, and book three in this series best. Don't think you can go wrong if you are looking for something inspirational to read when you choose this book. I have to admit I'm going to have to go back and read Kings and Chronicles again. I particularly like the bits with the prophet Isaiah in them.

Wonderful Series

The second book was awesome! Though it’s historical fiction, it brings to life the Old Testament. What an encouragement during our own dark times!

The Narrator the Best Part of this Book

I found this book disturbing in parts. Gruesome. Too gory in part for me. However, it does let you know what it might have been like living in this time period. The narrator did an excellent job reading the various parts. You can feel the empathy, etc. in her voice. After I finish the 3rd book, I probably will not finish this serious.

Excellent!

I love this 2nd book in the series, as it continues to bring the Bible to life. Austin continues to write a narrative that increases the listener’s faith. The narrator is excellent also.

I would highly recommend.
