"The prophet Nehemiah's cousin has been catapulted into the center of the Persian court--working long hours, rubbing elbows with royalty, and becoming the queen's favorite scribe. Not bad, for a woman living in a man's world. But a devastating past has left Sarah believing that God doesn't love her and her achievements are the measure of her worth--a measure she can never quite live up to. Darius Pasargadae is accustomed to having his way. A wealthy and admired aristocrat, the last thing he expects is an arranged marriage to the queen's scribe, an intelligent woman who scorns him. Can two such different people help one another overcome the idols that bind them."--P. [4] of cover.

I like Tessa Afshar's books a lot, and I particularly enjoy the historical details. I found Harvest of Rubies to be compelling with well-developed characters. For me, though, this sequel fell short. The plot points seemed a bit contrived and a good portion of the book read like someone telling a story rather than inviting the reader into it.

I have just discovered Tessa Afshar's books, and I am so thrilled with them! I love how she weaves together historical details and spiritual truth. This story is set in the time of Nehemiah with a likeable heroine who goes from driven and finding her worth in what she does to free in the Lord and connected to those around her.

This is an excellent book I love reading books that have a biblical story to tell. She wrote it in such a way that it keeps you intereste the whole way through

Harvest of Gold is the sequel to Harvest of Rubies. The first book focus's mostly on Sarah and in this book the reader learns more about her husband Darius. As the story unfolds the characters grow and evolve individually. The author writes in a way that is easy to connect with the characters. This novel is hard to put down, it's compelling, inspiring and insightful as well as spiritual.

This novel follows Tessa Afshar's 'Harvest of Rubies'. The reviews inside the front cover should be read. (I wish I could relate them all to you.) I concur with those who said this story was "compelling, inspiring, heart-stopping, and heartrending; a wonderful story with a totally captivating heroine. Readers won't be able to tear themselves away."

A wonderful story by an incredibly talented author. I concur with the reviewer who, speaking of Sarah, wrote, "Her faith journey strengthened mine and will inspire yours."

Harvest of Gold continues the story.

excellent reading, I love how she brings that time period to life and how faith in God is woven in.

Fantastic book. Engaging plot. It did tend to be a bit on the preachy side if one is not accustomed to that, they might not love it, but I thought it was well done
