Publisher's Summary

Remarkable talent threatens to cloud a life...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 that 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?

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Worth reading/listening to...

The narration was excellent, easy to understand, easy on the ears. The production was also excellent. I did not have to adjust volume and or tenor throughout.

I enjoyed the story, its historic nature but most especially the description of spiritual and emotional struggle.

Best inspirational author

Only Francine Rivers compares to the issues dealt with the symbolism and the use of Biblical context. Fantastic!

I loved this book!!!

In whole! The characters, the story, most of all the God of this story. I laughed and cried and hoped and dreamed. I longed for the ending and dreaded it as I would miss my new found friends in this wonderful story.

Tantalizing love story

Tantalizing Persian Jewish love story set in Nehemiah's era before the Jews return to Jerusalem to rebuild their city. One of the best narrators I've heard in Laural Merlington. And awesome weekend audiobook. Thoroughly enjoyed it!

Unique story

I really liked the story. This is the first Tessa Afshar story I read. It was very good and interesting. The time period it was in was fun to learn about. I enjoyed the reader/narrator of the story. She had a nice voice to listen to.

Excellent

Tessa Afshar is a gifted author and this is one of my favorite Christian fiction series. I find myself listening to parts over and over again. There are many funny and inspirational parts in this book. Not only is this book entertaining, but it also made me do some self reflection. This series is highly recommended.
