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 Pharaohs 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)
"Danger, dark schemes, and political intrigue wrestle against truth, valor, and determined obedience to Yahweh in this compelling tale of Hezekiahthe boy who would be kingand a beautiful but broken orphan girl taken in by Isaiah, the Lords prophet. While alternately angered and devastated by the faithlessness of Yahwehs 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, Gods best is yet to come."
Cathy Gohlke, Christy Awardwinning 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. Isaiahs Daughter is an excellent reminder that the truth of Gods 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, treacheryIsaiahs Daughter is all of that and more in this latest stellar novel by Mesu Andrews. The author brings to life Judahs 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 novels depth and breadth and how Andrews portrayed this daughter of a prophet rising to the greatness of Gods 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, Isaiahs Daughter is a story fans of biblical fiction will love!"
