About Isaiah's Daughter

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)

Praise

“Danger, dark schemes, and political intrigue wrestle against truth, valor, and determined obedience to Yahweh in this compelling tale of Hezekiah—the boy who would be king—and a beautiful but broken orphan girl taken in by Isaiah, the Lord’s prophet. While alternately angered and devastated by the faithlessness of Yahweh’s people in one chapter, in the next I was revitalized and filled with hope in the unfolding prophecies and mercy of our Sovereign God. Andrews has woven a love story, a beautifully written novel to savor, and a reminder that despite our fallen humanity, God’s best is yet to come.”
Cathy Gohlke, Christy Award–winning author of Until We Find Home

“Mesu Andrews brings the prophet Isaiah to life with her usual brilliance at weaving deep historical threads together with the story of a little-known woman of the Bible. Isaiah’s Daughter is an excellent reminder that the truth of God’s words will be proven, even when His people cannot see through the veil of suffering to the ultimate victory.”
Connilyn Cossette, CBA best-selling author of the Out from Egypt series

“Epic drama, adventure, love, treachery—Isaiah’s Daughter is all of that and more in this latest stellar novel by Mesu Andrews. The author brings to life Judah’s queen, the lovely Hephzibah, infusing each page with heart-stopping emotion and a pure romantic love for her friend and king, Hezekiah, that touched my soul. When I finished reading, I could only marvel at the novel’s depth and breadth and how Andrews portrayed this daughter of a prophet rising to the greatness of God’s promise, resilient in a time of disobedience. Keeping faith with Yahweh amid war and death and pestilence might be the only means to survive. A thoroughly catch-your-breath kind of experience in an impressive body of work, Isaiah’s Daughter is a story fans of biblical fiction will love!”
Kate Breslin, award-winning author of For Such a Time

Wow. This is the third Mesu Andrews book that I've read, and as always, I couldn't put it down. Of course I had to, reluctantly, but I did finish as soon as I could! Andrews' research is admirable makes her stories believable. After reading Isaiah's Daughter, I read the account of Hezekiah in 2 Kings and was blown away by Andrews' gift of weaving a narrative and giving historical context to a few Bible verses. I have yet to read...

This book was amazing!  I've read the Biblical book of Isaiah before and know about some of his prophecies, but I never stopped to think about them in the context of Isaiah's life.  This book weaves together the Biblical prophecies, the known facts about those days, the cultural nuances, and a beautiful (fictional) love story.  I found myself rereading passages from scripture (and I love it when a book points me back to the Bible!), yet at no...

I sat down with a cup of coffee, a warm blanket and before I knew it I had read half of the book in one sitting.  The cover is so beautiful in person (she always chooses the best book covers!).   I have been a fan of Mesua Andrews for years and each of her books just get better then the last.  Isaiah's Daughter was another wonderful book written about the Bible characters of the Old Testament.  Mesu Andrews does a wonderful job staying true...

Isaiah's Daughter by Mesu Andrews was a wonderfully biblical story about the daughter of Isaiah, Zibah. It was an intriguing and captivating story, like Andrews' other novels. It was a mash of biblical knowledge and creative storytelling that tells a story that isn't as in-depth in the Bible. I found it to be throughly enjoyable, and one that I am glad for the opportunity of reading. I highly recommend this novel.

The reason for my star rating:Some scenes in the book may be a bit mature or go to far. For myself it was almost on the line. I highly advise parents reading this book Pages that i think the most important to check in this un-proofed book is pages 156-157 and 201-202. I the Mesu could have left these part out to make it more family friendly.This book may be considered a romance book. I am not sure because I have never read a confirmed romance...
