Love’s Sacred Song

By Mesu Andrews


Mesu Andrews expertly weaves the words of the Song of Solomon into this touching story of the power of love. Readers 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.

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.


I’m sitting here sobbing as I finished this book. This beautiful story of Solomon and Arielah brought their love to life for me. The struggles and emotions have given depth to this king and his young bride.

I’m at a loss for words here. I’ll always look at the “Song of Solomon” in a new light.

Ms Andrews has a remarkable gift in her ability to bring biblical characters to life. First it was Job and now, Solomon. I’m wondering who is next. I’m looking forward to whomever it is.
