Isaiah’s Daughter

Isaiah's Daughter Cover

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.

I found myself captivated in this story from the very beginning.  Mesu Andrews takes the cast from Scripture and puts the story to match the Scripture, which opens the Scripture up to you so you can see what happened.  In this fashion, I wanted to know what was going on at all times.  You could feel Zibah’s pain, and you could feel her joy.
