IN THE SHADOW OF JEZEBEL
by Mesu Andrews
In a kingdom controlled by cruel and manipulative women, one princess will discover the power of truth and love.
Princess Jehosheba, trained as a priestess in Baal’s temple, strives to please the demanding Queen Athaliah, daughter of Jezebel. 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 far beyond the realm of earthly governments.
Forced to marry Yahweh’s high priest in order to further Athaliah and Jezebel’s power plays, Jehosheba 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 the Old Testament to life, revealing a fascinating story of the power of unconditional love.
