Love's Sacred Song

Love’s Sacred Song by Mesu Andrews is King Solomon’s love story from Song of Solomon in the bible.  King Solomon has just taken over the throne after the death of his father King David.  David built his kingdom with the sword, but Solomon continues to extend and secure Israel through treaties bound through treaty brides.  To Solomon women bring peace and pleasure, but not love.  Arielah has been destined for Solomon since birth to settle tension with Northern Israel and show Solomon that one of God’s greatest gifts is marriage. Their turbulent love story can only survive through Arielah’s faith and forgiveness found through a heavenly father that teaches love conquers all. 
Andrews did an incredible job with Love Amid the Ashes and continues to impress with Love’s Sacred Song.   Her excruciating research shines through this incredible love story.  Song of Solomon has always been extremely beautiful but confusing to me.  This novel gives the scriptures context and was absolutely enjoyable to read.  I cheered; I cried and absolutely loved this painful but beautiful love story.  This book was provided by Revell for review.
