Publisher's Summary

A hidden message, treachery, opposition, and a God-given success, will lead to an unlikely bounty. The scribe Sarah married Darius, and at times she feels as if she has married the Persian aristocracy too. But there is another thing she did not expect in her marriage - Sarah has grown to love her husband. She has wealth, property, honor, and power, yet securing her husband's love seems unattainable. And though Darius has been on numberless battlefields facing fierce enemies, he finds himself standing before Sarah with a fear he has never felt before - just because he wishes to express the truth to his wife.

Amazing story

I really enjoyed this story. It made me reflect on my character & consider how I can correct my shortfalls. I also feel this book is amazing for marital counseling & reflection.

Narrator is so great & makes the characters come alive... to the point that you can see the movie as it's being read to you.

Great story!!

I really enjoyed this sequel. It was well written, and while at times some behaviors seem odd they make sense in the context of the story itself. Darius's journey to The Lord is slow, characterized by his determination to avoid it, something I can relate to. It makes his slow and powerful change more compelling by the end.
I also love how flawed Darius and Sarah are, how they hurt each other and struggle to become a good husband and wife to each other.. And the narrator does an excellent job performing the characters and voicing their personalities.
Great book!

Stellar Biblical Love Story

Tessa Afahar brilliantly brings the Biblical account of Nehemiah to life in this epic love story of Sarah and Darius, Jewish scribe and Persian nobility. While the two are joined together as husband and wife by both happenstance and fate, bringing their souls together proves to be another matter, altogether.

Interwoven in the story of Sarah and Darius is the incredible account of Nehemiah's undertaking to rebuild the wall around his beloved Jerusalem. Add a murder plot against the king of Persia, a colorful cast of characters including an unconventional daughter of a noblemen who disguises herself as a man to help discover the identity of the conspirators, a caravan across the desert, and a test to earn forgiveness for an act of betrayal and you have the "Harvest of Gold."

Only God and Tessa Afshar could deliver such a treasure.

Brilliant!

Tessa didn't disappoint, another masterpiece. She brought the story of Nehemiah to life in the most beautiful way, a story of love, faith and surrender to our loving Creator. I read in one day, I simply couldn't put it down.

Good but sappy

I loved the first book of this story. I thought it moved fast and the story unfolded nicely. The second book dragged out some parts a bit and was way too sappy at times. Overall the book was very good.

This book has me hoping for too much

I have a Persian boyfriend and Sara and I have a lot in common. I like her. But ohh I'm so mad because I wish he could, on his own, also find God. I wish a Nehemiah walked into his life because being more open about my strong faith with him would be a dream come true. I like all the scenery that the author portrays - she inspired me to buy orange blossom room spray on Amazon and rose oils for my baths. I'll feel like royalty now :)

beautiful story

Beautiful story full of love and battle. This story gives a good insight in the life of Israelites post captivity. As a newly wed I enjoyed the story and learned some valuable things.

Excellent

I really enjoyed Part 2 of the series as much or more then book 1. The story is definitely a 5star again. Writer and the narrative are great. just knowing that Darius finally told Sarah he loved her. It is a love story back in the BC year. Going as what the Old Testament s write. it's a beautiful love story

A fascinating look at biblical history

I really enjoyed the perspective of life of Darius the Mede, prior to his ascension as the ruler of the Medo-Persian empire. The characterizations of the various main characters is well done, as are the extra details of life in the Persian empire several hundred years before Christ. this is a very pleasant read!
