My Thoughts:
Have you ever been to Jerusalem? I have. Have you ever been to the palace of a king? I have. Have you ever experienced life of a shepherdess? I have and it was all through Mesu Andrews' book, Love's Sacred Song an expanding of the life and love of biblical King Solomon and Arielah his best-loved wife. Even if you have never read the Song of Solomon I think you will find Love's Sacred Song to be a gripping story of raw emotion and most importantly flawed characters whose faith-filled lives are anything but perfect and far from easy. Brimming with palace intrigue, politics, clashing of religions, and the unrest among the women of Solomon's harem there is something to capture everyone's attention and really get you thinking about faith and life in ancient times. I can't even begin to imagine the luxuriousness of Solomon's palace but Mesu paints a vivid picture that, as I said, brings everything to life. Love's Sacred Song is one of the most gorgeous works of biblical fiction I've ever read and I fully intend to read ALL of Mesu's books in the future.

~5 stars~

About the book:
Standing in the shadow of his famous father, young King Solomon wavers between fear and bravado, longing for a love that is true and pure--a love that can be his cornerstone.

A shepherdess in the northern city of Shunem, Arielah has known since she first laid eyes on Solomon that it was her destiny to become his bride. When her father secures a promise from Solomon to marry Arielah as a treaty bride to help unite the kingdom, it seems her dreams will 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?
