Princess Jehosheba wants nothing more than to please the harsh and demanding Queen Athaliah, daughter of the notorious Queen Jezebel. Her work as a priestess in the temple of Baal seems to do the trick. But when a mysterious letter from the dead prophet Elijah predicts doom for the royal household, Jehosheba realizes that the dark arts she practices reach beyond the realm of earthly governments. To further Athaliah and Jezebel’s strategies, she is forced to marry Yahweh’s high priest and enters the unfamiliar world of Yahweh’s temple. Can her new husband show her the truth and love she craves? And can Jehosheba overcome her fear and save the family–and the nation–she loves?

With deft skill, Mesu Andrews brings Old Testament passages to life, revealing a fascinating story of the power of unconditional love.

IN THE SHADOW OF JEZEBEL by Mesu Andrews is an wonderful Inspirational Historical Romance (Biblical Fiction). #4 in the “Treasures of His Love” series, but can be read as a stand alone. See, “Love Amid the Ashes”, “Love’s Sacred Song”, and ” Love in a Broken Vessel”.
This is the tale of Princess Jehosheba, who was forced to marry a Yahweh’s high priest by her Queen, Queen Athaliah,daughter of Jezebel.
If you enjoy seeing Biblical characters come to life,  though the pages of a book, then you are in for a real treat. With her usual aplomb for telling the Bible though story,the use of scripture, and historical facts, Ms. Andrews has once again written a tale of unconditional love, sacrifice, and faith.
You will feel the characters struggles, their faith, see their customs, history and the culture of an era gone by long ago. She has captured the spirit of those from ancient times. A must read for anyone who enjoys Biblical Fiction and romance. Received an advance copy.
