Publisher's Summary

Remarkable talent threatens to cloud a life...The prophet Nehemiah's cousin has been catapulted into the center of the Persian court - working long hours, rubbing elbows with royalty, and becoming the queen’s favorite scribe. Not bad, for a woman living in a man’s world. But a devastating past has left Sarah believing that God doesn't love her and that her achievements are the measure of her worth - a measure she can never quite live up to. Darius Pasargadae is accustomed to having his way. A wealthy and admired aristocrat, the last thing he expects is an arranged marriage to the queen's scribe, an intelligent woman who scorns him. Can two such different people help one another overcome the idols that bind them?

    "Worth reading/listening to..."

    The narration was excellent, easy to understand, easy on the ears. The production was also excellent. I did not have to adjust volume and or tenor throughout.

    I enjoyed the story, its historic nature but most especially the description of spiritual and emotional struggle.

    "Best inspirational author"

    Only Francine Rivers compares to the issues dealt with the symbolism and the use of Biblical context. Fantastic!

    "I loved this book!!!"

    In whole! The characters, the story, most of all the God of this story. I laughed and cried and hoped and dreamed. I longed for the ending and dreaded it as I would miss my new found friends in this wonderful story.

    "Tantalizing love story"

    Tantalizing Persian Jewish love story set in Nehemiah's era before the Jews return to Jerusalem to rebuild their city. One of the best narrators I've heard in Laural Merlington. And awesome weekend audiobook. Thoroughly enjoyed it!

    Story
    "love this book!"

    I originally got this book from the library and had trouble getting started. So I bought it on audio and gave it a go. Looking back, I don't understand how I had trouble reading it. Its definitely one of my very favorite books!
    I think what I appreciate most about it is the realism. the fact is, the characters aren't perfect, sometimes you may even feel frustrated with them, or not like them. I love that it's so how real life is. sometimes we mess up, sometimes it's not an easy fix. the lessons in this book go deep and I love that I had it on audio so that I didn't get tempted to skim over them.
    the history was an added bonus to me. I love the accuracy of everything and the author's notes in the end explaining why she chose that part of history.
