Publisher's Description

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)

Editorial Reviews

"Danger, dark schemes, and political intrigue wrestle against truth, valor, and determined obedience to Yahweh in this compelling tale of Hezekiah—the boy who would be king—and a beautiful but broken orphan girl taken in by Isaiah, the Lord’s prophet. While alternately angered and devastated by the faithlessness of Yahweh’s people in one chapter, in the next I was revitalized and filled with hope in the unfolding prophecies and mercy of our Sovereign God. Andrews has woven a love story, a beautifully written novel to savor, and a reminder that despite our fallen humanity, God’s best is yet to come."
Cathy Gohlke, Christy Award–winning author of Until We Find Home

"Mesu Andrews brings the prophet Isaiah to life with her usual brilliance at weaving deep historical threads together with the story of a little-known woman of the Bible. Isaiah’s Daughter is an excellent reminder that the truth of God’s words will be proven, even when His people cannot see through the veil of suffering to the ultimate victory."
Connilyn Cossette, CBA best-selling author of the Out from Egypt series

"Epic drama, adventure, love, treachery—Isaiah’s Daughter is all of that and more in this latest stellar novel by Mesu Andrews. The author brings to life Judah’s queen, the lovely Hephzibah, infusing each page with heart-stopping emotion and a pure romantic love for her friend and king, Hezekiah, that touched my soul. When I finished reading, I could only marvel at the novel’s depth and breadth and how Andrews portrayed this daughter of a prophet rising to the greatness of God’s promise, resilient in a time of disobedience. Keeping faith with Yahweh amid war and death and pestilence might be the only means to survive. A thoroughly catch-your-breath kind of experience in an impressive body of work, Isaiah’s Daughter is a story fans of biblical fiction will love!"
Kate Breslin, award-winning author of For Such a Time

    This book was amazing! Ive read the Biblical book of Isaiah before and know about some of his prophecies, but I never stopped to think about them in the context of Isaiahs life. This book weaves together the Biblical prophecies, the known facts about those days, the cultural nuances, and a beautiful (fictional) love story. I found myself rereading passages from scripture (and I love it when a book points me back to the Bible!), yet at no time did I feel like I was reading a history book.

    Mesu Andrews does a fabulous job of bringing the characters to life! Ishma got my pity when I met her as a small, pitiful, captive child. But my admiration for her grew as she matured and learned not just to face her fears, but instead to turn and face Yahweh for her courage. But other characters also have their stories woven in and some are good, and some arent!

    I really loved this story and just cannot praise it enough! Mesu Andrews is a master story teller and weaves in with the story so much rich cultural background as well as Biblical truth it truly brings the Bible alive. I highly recommend this book. I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.

    I really loved this story. It flowed very well and I loved the characters. I love how this author can take a few words from the Bible and turn them in to a full blown story. You almost think this was really how these people reacted in their real lives. I would not want to marry a king or be the daughter of a prophet. Being both was very hard for Ishma(Hephzibah). I did not want to put this book down. I always look forward to her books. I received a copy of this book from bloggingforbooks for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will.

    A captivating page turner. At the beginning of the chapters, Scripture sets the stage for the stories to come about the life and times of God's Prophets and Kings in the time of the divided Kingdom of Israel and Judah. I was so excited to receive this book because I previously read Miriam last year by the same author Mesa Andrews, and was an instant fan of her writings, which had touched me and brought me closer to God. She puts a lot of research into her characters and the culture of the times, which is based on Biblical, historical fact, even though some characters are fictitious, some are not. The preface of the book has a Character List that explains who is who in the story. The story has romance, suspense and heart rending stories, and eventual healing, that will bless you in a wonderful way. Most of all, for me personally, he story is kept Biblically accurate and entertaining. I felt like I was there, although I personally read with a vivid imagination, Mesa Andrews style will suck you into the pages and you can't put it down.

    I received this book from Blogging for Books in exchange for an honest review. I would highly recommend this book, even for those like me, who never thought they would enjoy Historical Romance.

    Isaiah's Daughter, Written by Mesu Andrews is a fictional story based on the prophet Isaiah, his family and especially his adoptive daughter, Ishma. Using Bible verses, the author tells us the story of Ishma and her friend Yaira, who were taken captive by Israel-soldiers who attacked Bethlehem. They travel to Jerusalem and are taken into Isaiah's family. Following the attacks that killed her family, Ishma no longer speaks.

    King Ahaz, of Jerusalem, declared the first born sons would be sacrificed. He sacrificed his oldest son. From that day on his next oldest son, Hezekiah, showed no response, staring blankly. Isaiah's wife invited the Queen and her son to visit. During this visit, Ishma talked with Hezekiah and he responded to her. This was the beginning of their friendship.

    This is a very good book. The story, told to us by Ishma, tells us the struggles the people of that time had. The wars that took place as well as the idol worshiping and religious beliefs. I especially like how the author builds her story around Bible verses to help us understand what it could have been like. This story is so well written it was easy to visualize Ishma cooing to her doves as well as the dangers the people were in with the threats from Assyria.

    While reading this book, I wondered how we would respond to having prophets today. Would we take what they have to say seriously? If we did, would we be steadfast and patient while we wait for the fulfillment of the prophesy?

    I received a copy of this book from Blogging for Books. I have written an honest review.
