Oh what a story!! Mesu Andrews has taken the Bible book Songs of Solomon, and Biblical history and woven a beautiful story, centering around King Solomon and his love for his Shulammite princess Arielah.  This story is a beautiful story of love that is pure, and life lasting.  Arielah, first saw Solomon when he was a teen and she just a child of seven years old, but she knew that she would one day be his bride.  And she dared to dream that she would win his heart.  And win his heart she did, however she was a strong young woman, determined to follow the laws of Jehovah and often angered Solomon with her actions.  Once the wedding day arrived and Arielah was a beloved queen in the palace, she became the target for the secret group of men trying to overthrow the kingdom, the Sons of Judah.  A target that was in dire danger, a target that Solomon was unable to protect, and Arielah, nearly lost her life at the hands of this covert group.
This story was divided into two parts and while each part was important to revealing the whole story, I often found myself bogged down in part one of the book, while part two moved quickly and kept you reading to find out what would happen next.  All in all this story was a good story, a story that will open  your eyes and bring the stories of the Bible to life for you.  438 pages $14.99 US 4 stars
