Review: Isaiah's Daughter Mesu Andrews

February 24, 2018

Title: Isaiah's Daughter
Author: Mesu Andrews
Publisher: Water Brook
Pages: 384
Publication Date: January 16th, 2018

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)
Do you have a favorite author, that when you hear that that have a brand new book coming out x-amount of months away, that you count down for?

Well, Mesu Andrews is one of those authors for me. I have read every single book she has written and I anxiously wait for a new book to be listed on GoodReads.

Isiah's Daughter has to be one of my favorites from her now. She has written on a topic that I haven't seen in this genre. The focus of the Old Testament is fantastic. She never takes away from the Biblical accounts, but she brings it to life and opens a door to read and research what the story is based on.

Following Zibah through her life during this story was engaging and also very, very interesting. I have read another story on Hezekiah, but this was a new perspective. Zibah lived in an very interesting time, and played an important part and became "a delight to the Lord." Reading her story was just fantastic!

This story held me captive the whole way through. If you are a fan of Biblical fiction or you are looking to try it out this genre, I would recommend this book to anyone!

Too Read!
