Love's Sacred Song

Author: Mesu Andrews
Publisher: Revell
March 2012
ISBN: 978-0800734084
Genre: Biblical Fiction

Arielah is a shepherdess who has known ever since she met Solomon that it’s her destiny to become King Solomon’s bride—but Solomon finally reluctantly agrees to take Arielah as a treaty bride to help unite the kingdom. Aielah is content, as it seems all her dreams will come true.

King Solomon is standing in King David’s famous shadow, and Solomon wavers between fear and bravado. He does take Arielah as a treaty bride, but he adds her to his harem, something Arielah never expected or wanted.

Can Arielah live as part of Solomon’s harem? Can Solomon set aside his distractions to give himself to just one woman? Or will duty, deception, and the daily routine divide his heart?

LOVE’S SACRED SONG is the latest release by biblical fiction author Mesu Andrews. Those who are familiar with the biblical stories of King Solomon will know some of the details of this story, and the rest is pure imagination that vividly brings the time period, the characters, and the setting to life.

Arielah becomes real on the pages of this book, as does King Solomon. I enjoyed getting to know these characters and seeing where this story would take them. Knowing that Solomon had many wives and a huge harem, it seemed unlikely Arielah would get her dreams of a forever love, but I hoped that she would. Author’s notes are included at the end of the book. $14.99. 448 pages.
