Amazing. Absolutely amazing. Mesu Andrews deserves an award for the beautiful work she has put into Love's Sacred Song.

While, admittedly, it took me a while to really come to like Solomon and adjust to the pace I'm very glad I read it.

Enter in Arielah. A young shepherdess who knew when she first laid eyes on Solomon that she would one day become his wife. She faces many battles and enemies throughout the book. But she shows compassion, mercy, and forgiveness to all who will accept it. My favorite scene in particular that impacted me the most was Igal's redemption. Seeing him repent and reconnect with his family warmed my heart.

Then we meet Solomon. A young new king who just lost his Abba to old age. We get to see him struggle to find his place. (This is where Andrew's ability to weave scripture in with the fiction is superb.) To see what it was like for Israelite kings was stunning and intriguing.

I would recommend this book to anyone who loves Biblical fiction.
