My Review: Richly woven Biblical Fiction, based on Song of Solomon.
I was surprised at how easily I was swept into another time and place, with Love's Sacred Song. Mesu Andrews expertly mixes historical fact, with well-crafted fiction, creating a page-turning, Biblical romance that is nearly impossible to put down.
Now you might be wondering, "How do you make a story about a man with numerous wives, romantic?" Well, you'll have to read this book to find out! I had some doubts too, about this story, but Love's Sacred Song completely blew me away.
I think that this book gave me some new insight on the struggles that Solomon faced, and helped me understand the circumstances under which he ended up with so many wives!
My favorite character ended up being Jehoshaphat, Arielah's father. He was a man full of faith, with wisdom, character, and an innate sense of honor, that made him someone that I instantly admired.
Overall, Love's Sacred Song is a bitter-sweet, yet powerful love story.Based on Song of Solomon, Love's Sacred Song is so different from the kind of book that you might typically expect to get as a result. I highly recommend this book. Even if you're like me and don't typically read Biblical Fiction, Love's Sacred Song is so good that it's totally worth giving a shot.
Final Rating: 5 out of 5
