Biblical Fiction Book Review: Isaiah's Daughter

Publisher's Description

"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"

My Review

Isaiah’s Daughter, by Mesu Andrews, is an entertaining and inspiring novel. Within its pages, Ms. Andrews has crafted a well-written story of faith and love that is not only rich in character development, but also shines with detailed descriptions that provide a fresh perspective on ancient settings and themes. The well-paced plot is thoroughly engaging and intriguing as it offers a compelling combination of mystery, suspense, and romance. Isaiah’s Daughter is a thoughtful work of Biblical fiction that shines with imagination enhanced with thorough research and an evident respect for both history and the Bible. It is a satisfying, thought-provoking, and enjoyable novel that I can gladly recommend to others.

My Reflection

Within this novel, I was struck by the profound emphasis on the importance of obedience to God’s directions. Repeatedly, obedience is rewarded with mercy and favor, while disobedience is met with warnings and punishment. Through its ancient, Biblical setting, this novel wisely reflects on the value of humble submission to the word of God. For those who place their trust in him, God offers forgiveness, redemption, and restoration. For those willing to follow God there is glory and grace in abundance. Through the challenges and hardships experienced by the characters and the authentic nature of their personal and spiritual growth, I was reminded of God’s faithfulness and patience as he waits for us to both listen and obey.
