    This review was written for Harvest of Gold - eBook.
    This is a continuation of Sarah and Darius's love story that began in <i>Harvest of Rubies</i>. The story begins with a summons to the King's court. Darius and Sarah rush to arrive on time to the King's summons. During their travel they are set up by thieves. Darius barely escapes with his life, and Sarah discovers a man with tattoos on his head that reveal instructions about an upcoming attempt to assassinate the King. Sarah's uncle, Nehemiah is granted his wish to rebuild the walls around Jerusalem. Darius is charged with finding who wants the King dead. Sarah doesn't wish to be separated from her husband for more than a year, so she keeps a secret from her husband. Keeping secrets from her husband was something she had promised to never do again, but her fears win the battle. When Sarah's secret is discovered through a tragedy, Darius once again shuts her out of his life. We see God's amazing grace in a strange twist of fate for Sarah, but will this be enough to bring Darius back to Sarah? Will Darius learn how to take down his walls protecting his heart and open it fully to his wife? Will Nehemiah be able to overcome the opposition to having Jerusalem's walls rebuilt?

    I am so grateful that I was granted the privilege of reading an advanced e-copy of Harvest of God through Netgalley. I loved the continuation of Sarah and Darius's story. Afshar has a unique talent for weaving together a story that makes Biblical history come alive. <i>Harvest of Rubies</i> focused on the female psyche, while <i>Harvest of Gold</i> gives insight in the male psyche. Many marriages could learn a few things from this story on how fears can take over and bring problems without it being someone's original intent. The baggage each of us carry is shared with such care and insight. All of us need a Nehemiah in our life to help us see the walls we have built that need to be taken down, while learning which walls need to be built to protect us. This is why this book belongs on everyone's favorite shelf. I know that I will read this book again and again.

    I was so excited to read this book! It exceeded my expectations. I tried to savor each page so I would not finish it so quickly but I just couldn't put it down until I completed it! The characters of Darius, Sarah and Nehemiah captured my heart through their struggles, strength and faith. I loved the chemistry between Darius and Sarah. Tessa Afshar has the ability to write Biblical fiction that not only has suspense, romance and an engaging plot. The most important factor that I believe that touches my heart/mind is the strong element of faith and God's Holy Spirit that is evident in this novel. Thanks Tessa for writing novels that not only entertain us but touch/ speak to our hearts through God's Spirit. I loved this book! I can't wait for Tessa Afshar next novel! Thanks to Net Galley and River North publishers for this Arc.
