Summary

Standing in the massive shadow of his famous father, young king Solomon wavers between fear and bravado, wisdom and folly. In the uncertain world of alliances and treachery, Solomon longs for peace and a love that is true and pure - a love that can be his cornerstone.

A shepherdess in the northern city of Shunem, Arielah remembers the first time she laid eyes on Solomon in Jerusalem when she was just seven years old. Since then she has known that it was her destiny to become his bride. When her father, a leader of their tribe, secures a promise from King Solomon to marry Arielah as a treaty bride to help unite the kingdom, it seems her dreams may come true.

But how can this simple shepherdess live as part of Solomon's harem? Can Solomon set aside his distractions to give himself completely to just one woman? Or will he let duty, deception, and the daily routine divide his heart?

Mesu Andrews expertly weaves the words of the Song of Solomon into this touching story of the power of love. Listeners will be transported from the glowing fields of Shunem to the gleaming city of Jerusalem as they experience this rich and textured novel from a master storyteller.

A Beautiful Life.

Beautifully written. An otherwise ugly and painful story to tell, but the writer managed to keep getting me to focus on the beautiful moments in the midst of a harsh life. Lives should be redefined just like the author did in this story.

So good, I will definitely read again.

This story makes the Bible Book Song of Solomon come to life. I rarely listen to a story twice, but I will enjoy hearing this one again.

Another great biblical story by Mesu Andrews

The story, history, narration all come together in yet another gripping tale. The undeniable picture of Gods love is played out in every chapter. Love this series. You will too.

A Hallmark Movie in a Book

I struggled with the leaps this books took at times. Such as when Solomon, a wise man, promises to sleep with only one women. A man of his training and wisdom, with many wives already, would have known better. Historical accuracy is iffy. The narrator remains just as stiff as she is in the sample. I very much enjoyed the author's book based on Daniel, so I was a little disappointed on this one, but it's an easy listen if you just need entertainment.

Tinder yet realistic love story

I loved the narrators voice and I thought the author did a wonderful job in re-creating the song of Solomon. What I didn’t like was the weak character of Solomon. It seems to me she could have strengthened him making the plot better and more true to the biblical version. This is my first book to read by this author and I find her delightful. She picked a very difficult book in the Bible and all in all she did a very good job of re-creating it for the modern mind to understand.

Another amazing book from Mesu!!

I’ve listened to every single audiobook of hers (except for finishing Isaiah’s Daughter, not the right time for that one) and each have deepened and broadened my wonder and amazement at the richness of God’s story and His love for us, despite our brokenness.

A wonderful story based on The Song of Solomon

I loved all of this book to the very end. The focus is on the woman of The Song of Solomon. I wonder if it entirely made up, or if the author found some kind of writings from that era in history that validate any of her story (since virtually nothing of her is in the Bible beyond he beautiful love words expressed between her and King Solomon. No matter, the story here is wonderful. But is there anyway to know what parts might be true?
