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.
 
"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)

        Starred review from October 30, 2017
        Andrews (Miriam) continues her mission to explore the lives of lesser-known women of the Bible in this thrilling account of Hephzibah, the wife of King Hezekiah of Judah. She begins her life as Ishma and is orphaned as a girl when her family is killed by Israelite soldiers. After a treacherous flight, she is welcomed into the prophet Isaiah’s home. There she meets the young prince Hezekiah, who has also suffered: he watched his brother be sacrificed to a pagan god. The two children form a friendship rooted in their shared pain that develops over the years into a lasting love. Isaiah adopts Ishma and bestows on her a new name given by Yahweh: Hephzibah, which means “delight of the Lord.” Together, she and the newly crowned King Hezekiah face many challenges as they strive to be obedient to Yahweh, aided (and sometimes constrained) by the prophecies of her biological father that she and “the king of Judah” will end up together. Andrews’s excellent tale invites readers to have a new appreciation for the time of the prophets and to reconsider what trust in God truly means.

        With her family destroyed, an orphaned Ishma enters the house of the prophet Isaiah as a captive, but he adopts the young woman and gives her a new name, Hephzibah, which means "delight of the Lord." She soon ends up stealing the heart of the future Israelite king Hezekiah, but life in the palace and her marriage are not easy. As war and strife run rampant through the land of Israel and still haunted by her past, Zibah fears an uncertain future. Faith in Yahweh seems to be the only way to ensure peace, endure hardship, and develop the strength to forgive. Narrated by Zibah, this story is an emotional roller coaster that will keep readers engaged. VERDICT Marked by precise historical detail, Andrews's (Miriam) sweeping and engrossing biblical saga will renew interest among Christian book groups in rereading the prophesies of Isaiah in the Old Testament.
