Love’s Sacred Song by Mesu Andrews

About this book:
Mesu Andrews expertly weaves the words of the Song of Solomon into this touching story of the power of love. Readers will be transported from the glowing fields of Shunem to the gleaming city of Jerusalem as they experience this rich and textured novel from a master storyteller.
Standing in the massive shadow of his famous father, young king Solomon wavers between fear and bravado, wisdom and folly. In the uncertain world of alliances and treachery, Solomon longs for peace and a love that is true and pure--a love that can be his cornerstone.
A shepherdess in the northern city of Shunem, Arielah remembers the first time she laid eyes on Solomon in Jerusalem when she was just seven years old. Since then she has known that it was her destiny to become his bride. When her father, a leader of their tribe, secures a promise from King Solomon to marry Arielah as a treaty bride to help unite the kingdom, it seems her dreams may come true.
Mesu Andrews is the author of Love Amid the Ashes and is an active speaker who has devoted herself to passionate and intense study of Scripture. Harnessing her deep understanding and love for God's Word, Andrews brings the biblical world vividly alive for her readers. She lives in Washington.
My thoughts:
Mesu's last novel, Love Amid the Ashes, is one of the best books I've ever read. It's up there with one of my other favorites, Redeeming Love, by Francine Rivers. The reason why Mesu's novels are so compelling is that you know the Bible characters, but she shows you a whole new side to them. In her first novel it was Job and his strength, and in this novel it's the trials of Solomon and his desire for approval, acceptance and love. After reading her first novel, I couldn't wait for the second...and now I look forward to her third novel.
