Waiting On Wednesday: Jerusalem's Queen

October 31, 2018

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly feature that spotlights an up-and-coming release you are most excited about.

I really enjoy Biblical fiction. I find it fascinating and helps me to picture the scripture in a light that helps me to processes. When the story focuses on a person of the Bible of a time in the Bible that isn't as popular or well known, I gravitate to them all the more. When I saw this book pop up on soon to be published stories, I was really interested. The cover is gorgeous and unique. The story is one I don't have much knowledge on. I want to go research this time more.

Waiting On:
Title: Jerusalem's Queen
Author: Angela Hunt
Publisher: Bethany House
Publication Date: November 6th, 2018

About the Book:
Born in the small village of Modein, a town made famous by the warrior Maccabees, Salome Alexandra knows better than to harbor grand dreams for her future. She pales in comparison to her beautiful older sister, and though she learns to read at an early age, girls are not valued for their intellectual ability. But when her father and sister are killed, John Hyrcanus, a distant relative, invites Salome and her mother to live with his family in Jerusalem, where her thirst for knowledge is noticed and indulged.

When her guardian betroths her to a pagan prince, she questions HaShem's plan. When Hyrcanus finally marries her to a boy half her age, she questions her guardian's sanity. But though Salome spends much of her life as a pawn ordered about by powerful men, she learns that a woman committed to HaShem can change the world.
