Jehosheba has been raised by her mother Thaliah, the daughter of Jezebel to be a baal priestess, but instead she is given as a bride to God's high priest, Jehoiada. Will she learn to love her husband's God and help to cast off the shadow of Jezebel?
From beginning to end this was a gripping read, pulling me into intrigue that rivaled that of the Tudorian court. This wasn't a conventional love story by any means, and I loved following Jehosheba and Jehoiada in their journey and how they both supported each other and were affected the other for the better.
Jehosheba was a strong heroine to have gone through what she did with her stepmother, who manipulated her and her brother Hazi.
I think one of my favorite parts of the book was when she befriended Keilah and Zibiah, who were great friends to her in return.
Overall this was a gripping novel that tells the tale of the tumultuous time of Israel's kings when they were in the very height of baal worship and deception. This book is a fantastic novel from beginning to end, and kept me reading well into the early hours of morning. I would definitely recommend this book, especially for lovers of biblical fiction!
