"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 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.

Deeply engrossing from beginning to end.

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.

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

Although I don't like the time period very much the author wrote this book so well I loved every page. Espesily how she wove in Biblical truths so well into the story. A must read!
