Engaging Biblical Fiction | Isaiah's Daughter by Mesu Andrews


In this epic Biblical narrative, ideal for fans of The Bible miniseries, a young woman taken into the prophet Isaiah's household rises to capture the heart of the future king.  

Isaiah adopts Ishma, giving her a new name—Zibah, delight of the Lord—thereby ensuring her royal pedigree. Ishma came to the prophet's home, devastated after watching her family destroyed and living as a captive. But as the years pass, Zibah's lively spirit wins Prince Hezekiah's favor, a boy determined to rebuild the kingdom his father has nearly destroyed. But loving this man will awake in her all the fears and pain of her past and she must turn to the only One who can give life, calm her fears, and deliver a nation. 

"Andrews (The Pharaoh’s Daughter) offers her unique brand of in-depth Bible knowledge and storytelling flair ... [she] is gifted at bringing the past to life..." —Publishers Weekly (starred review)


Mesu Andrews writes exquisite biblical fiction, and I particularly enjoyed Isaiah’s Daughter because Andrews brings to life a time in biblical history with which I’m not too familiar. The focus centers around Isaiah’s adopted daughter and her relationship with Prince Hezekiah, while giving context to a lot of Isaiah’s prophecies. The characters feel authentic and realistic, and their story, full of struggles and faith, is engaging from beginning to end. Fans of biblical fiction, do not miss this upcoming release from Mesu Andrews. I recommend it.


Thanks to Blogging for Books, I received a complimentary copy of Isaiah’s Daughter and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
