    Although I've read several of Andrews' books, I'm drawn back over and over because I feel as though I'm there, seeing the Bible come alive.  For example, here's a prayer from Isaiah's Daughter that spoke to my heart: "God of our fathers, Giver of life and breath, You are our Rock, ...

    Obvious intensive research brought to life this epic book about Hephzibah, the daughter of the prophet Isaiah in the Bible. Both Isaiah and his wife were listed as prophets in the Bible. Hephzibah was the wife of King Hezekiah, Judah's most righteous King, Hezekiah's father, Ahaz, was ...

    History and prophecy form a large part of the Bible, and it?s easy to imagine them belonging just to war and the realm of men. Mesu Andrews instead lets us view them through the eyes of women and peace, a change of viewpoint that results not just in an enticing historical romance but...

    Mesu Andrews does an excellent job of drawing the reader back in time to the days of the Old Testament Bible. As you read her descriptions you not only can see the images but also "taste", "smell" and "touch" in your mind. It is as if you are there walking the dusty path, eating luscio...

    I am so glad that Mesu Andrews felt it impressed upon her heart to write this story. Honestly, I had never taken the time to envision or imagine what life must have been like for Isaiah as he passed along God?s prophecies. Likewise, I hadn?t thought about what it would have been ...

    I have to give this one 5 stars because I am in awe of Mesu?s ability to make these characters come to life and set them to living and breathing on the page! Plus, my Bible-fiction-loving student reader has given this two thumbs way up as well :) Grab a copy today. ...

    I am really blown away with Isaiah?s Daughter. Author Andrews brought the political atmosphere to life between the divided countries of Israel and Judah. We start off when Hezekiah and his future wife are but children and both have endured horrific events. The voices of Hezekiah, Isa...

    There were times I had to put this book down as the realities were almost to much for me. The truths that were expressed needed to be pondered. Ideas were given that I hadn't considered before but made total sense. Ishma was an orphan Judean girl that was captured by renegade Israel...

    In her Author's Notes, Mesu Andrews writes, "Because God's Holy Scriptures are His living Word, they have been fulfilled in many ways in many generations and will be fulfilled in ways yet to come." (p 384) That really struck me as profound. Especially when I think about the Old Testame...

    Isaiah's Daughter is historical fiction at its finest. Mesu Andrews does a marvelous job of telling the story of a young woman who first is depicted as a captive orphan who is adopted by a prophet, and ends up the queen of Judah, the beloved wife of King Hezekiah. Taking Biblical histo...

    Isaiah's Daughter by Mesu Andrews is a Biblical story of a warring divided nation ruled by an evil king who mocks King David's legacy and leaves those faithful to Yahweh praying and clinging to Him. Affected by the war, Ishma, meaning desolation, is an orphaned Hebrew girl who is also ...

    We must believe in Yahweh's best and let His plan unfold. I'm so glad I read this book. Usually I shy away from the Biblical Fiction genre, but not this time, and I'm so glad. I recently finished reading through the Kings and Chronicles books of the Bible and they had come alive in ...

    While biblical fiction isn't normally one of my chosen genres, I've really enjoyed some of Lynn Austin and Connilynn Cossette's books. When I heard about Mesu Andrews' Isaiah's Daughter, I was immediately intrigued by this story of a captive who would become queen. And, for better or w...

    Another moving story by Mesu Andrews. She is one of the top Queens of biblical fiction. This one was essentially a love story between Hezekiah and the mother of his son Manasseh. Andrews has a knack for creating a setting, background, and other characters that are woven so well into th...

    A beautiful blend of Fiction and Facts to create a moving tribute to Hezekiah. The story is told through the point of view of Ishma, a Fictional character. Through Ishma's eyes readers experience life in 732 BC Judah. I especially enjoyed the reference to birds throughout the novel to ...

    As I've noted in my previous reviews of this author, Biblical fiction by Mesu Andrews never fails to send me running for my Bible to find the details she has brought to life! Half the time, I'm thinking, "She must have made that up!" only to find it right there in my Bible in black and...

    This remarkable book is epic in the proportions of history and prophecy that are included in Hephzibah(Ishma) and King Hezekiah's story. Although this is biblical fiction, I feel that the author has opened my eyes to the world of the Israelites, to the worship of false gods and the hum...
