Publisher's Description

A vividly-realized and beautifully crafted novel focused around the fabled meeting between Sheba and Solomon

Against all odds Makeda, daughter of an obscure African chieftain, is chosen as Queen of all Sheba. Recognizing her own inexperience, yet desperately wanting to address Sheba's appalling social injustice, she is persuaded by her cousin Tamrin, wealthy merchant and narrator of the novel, to visit Solomon, King of Israel, to fi nd out about how he governs his kingdom. She is hugely impressed by Israel's prosperity, by the wisdom and integrity with which Solomon rules, by the Hebrew religion, which she decides to adopt as her own, and by the justice for all that she determines to copy.

However Solomon, who is trapped in a childless and loveless dynastic marriage with Pharaoh's daughter, allows himself to fall in love with the beautiful and intelligent African. He eventually tricks her into sleeping with him, and on the return journey to Sheba she discovers that she is pregnant.

Th e son to whom she gives birth grows up in the court of Sheba, and eventually travels to Israel with Tamrin, to meet his father. But Solomon is a broken man, having put his doomed love for Makeda and need for an heir before his relationship with God. He has taken hundreds of wives and concubines in a fruitless attempt to recapture the love which he and Makeda shared. And Israel is no longer the nation of his youth . . .

When the leader of the nation of God is apostate, where will the blessing fall?

    I really enjoyed The Last Queen of Sheba. I was surprised that it was told from the perspective of her uncle and therefore at least half of the book does not speak of the titular Queen at all.

    For me, the history presented in the book was much more compelling than the Queen's story. There is an ancient tradition of stories about the Queen of Sheba in many African and Arabian myths. It was these stories which were much more interesting to me.

    As for the novel itself, it was well-crafted and kept my interest. I only wish there had been more about the queen or that the novel's title was a bit more clear that the scope of the book would go much further beyond this famous Queen.
