Not only will Mesu Andrews’ biblical fiction sweep you away to another time and place, but it will also inspire you to know God better.
I bought Mesu’s debut novel, Love Amid the Ashes, because I’d never read a romantic story featuring Job. From the first pages, I could see that she has a special gift for storytelling. I loved how she helped me see Job as a hero. Yes, Old Testament Job—a noble, handsome, what-a-girl-wants hero. So it’s NO surprise that each of her novels brings something unique to the world of inspirational fiction.

This year, I’m privileged to be on Mesu’s launch team for her latest novel, In the Shadow of Jezebel. I’ll be sharing a review of this novel next week. The Scavenger Giveaway has ended, but here’s some vital information about Mesu’s book.
What’s it about?
Here’s the blurb from Amazon: 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.
