Isaiah's Daughter Reviews

    Jan 16, 2018

    I am so glad that Mesu Andrews felt it impressed upon her heart to write this story. Honestly, I had never taken the time to envision or imagine what life must have been like for Isaiah as he passed along God?s prophecies. Likewise, I hadn?t thought about what it would have been ...

    This remarkable book is epic in the proportions of history and prophecy that are included in Hephzibah(Ishma) and King Hezekiah's story. Although this is biblical fiction, I feel that the author has opened my eyes to the world of the Israelites, to the worship of false gods and the hum...

    I have to give this one 5 stars because I am in awe of Mesu?s ability to make these characters come to life and set them to living and breathing on the page! Plus, my Bible-fiction-loving student reader has given this two thumbs way up as well :) Grab a copy today. ...

    A beautiful blend of Fiction and Facts to create a moving tribute to Hezekiah. The story is told through the point of view of Ishma, a Fictional character. Through Ishma's eyes readers experience life in 732 BC Judah. I especially enjoyed the reference to birds throughout the novel to ...

    Obvious intensive research brought to life this epic book about Hephzibah, the daughter of the prophet Isaiah in the Bible. Both Isaiah and his wife were listed as prophets in the Bible. Hephzibah was the wife of King Hezekiah, Judah's most righteous King, Hezekiah's father, Ahaz, was ...

    Hold on just one moment, please. *Reflects* Ahem. Okay. Now, I can review this book. This book. What can say about this poignant, stunning novel of epic proportions? I can tell you that this book will pull you in and twist you up inside, as you get to know Hephzibah, or Ishma as she's ...

    We must believe in Yahweh's best and let His plan unfold. I'm so glad I read this book. Usually I shy away from the Biblical Fiction genre, but not this time, and I'm so glad. I recently finished reading through the Kings and Chronicles books of the Bible and they had come alive in ...

    In her Author's Notes, Mesu Andrews writes, "Because God's Holy Scriptures are His living Word, they have been fulfilled in many ways in many generations and will be fulfilled in ways yet to come." (p 384) That really struck me as profound. Especially when I think about the Old Testame...

    EXCELLENT READ! Epic drama, adventure, love, treachery?Isaiah?s Daughter is all of that and more in this latest stellar novel by Mesu Andrews. The author brings to life Judah?s queen, the lovely Hephzibah, infusing each page with heart-stopping emotion and a pure, romantic love ...

    Interesting, but for a Biblical retelling? There were historical events from the Bible, but the license taken mostly with the main character, Hephzibah was just too much. If she hadn't been a biblical character, it might have worked for me. Hephzibah (King Hezekia's wife) is only m...

    3.5 stars. Confusing at times with names of people and places. And extra information added to its length. But a beautiful story of faith. ...

    It has been a long wait for this novel, but having just finished this enthralling read, I can say with absolute certainty that it was worth every minute of the wait. The world of 8th Century BC Judah really comes to life in this novel, which spans almost forty years of Judah?s histor...

    While reading Mesu Andrews?s new release, I hurt and fell in love with a little girl named Ishma. As that girl struggles with her fears of soldiers and of being alone, forges a friendship with a boy who will one day become king, and discovers a new family with the prophet Isaiah, I g...

    There were times I had to put this book down as the realities were almost to much for me. The truths that were expressed needed to be pondered. Ideas were given that I hadn't considered before but made total sense. Ishma was an orphan Judean girl that was captured by renegade Israel...

    I picked up this book with a big question mark on it. It's not my usual genre. I really enjoyed this book though! It was well written and I loved the character's.Will for sure pick up another of this authors books. ...

    Mesu Andrews does an excellent job of drawing the reader back in time to the days of the Old Testament Bible. As you read her descriptions you not only can see the images but also "taste", "smell" and "touch" in your mind. It is as if you are there walking the dusty path, eating luscio...

    History and prophecy form a large part of the Bible, and it?s easy to imagine them belonging just to war and the realm of men. Mesu Andrews instead lets us view them through the eyes of women and peace, a change of viewpoint that results not just in an enticing historical romance but...

    Isaiah's Daughter by Mesu Andrews is a Biblical story of a warring divided nation ruled by an evil king who mocks King David's legacy and leaves those faithful to Yahweh praying and clinging to Him. Affected by the war, Ishma, meaning desolation, is an orphaned Hebrew girl who is also ...

    Although this novel is called Isaiah's Daughter, it brings to life a much larger, epic slice of scripture than the name might suggest. Here Andrews delves into the life of Hephzibah, "the Lord delights in her," daughter of Isaiah, wife of a righteous king and mother of a wicked one. Th...

    If you weren't already aware, Mesu Andrews has for a long time now been on my list of top five authors. I thought her first book was amazing, and they just keep getting better and better. This book is no exception. It's challenging, heartwarming, tragically sad, and extremely hopefu...

    While biblical fiction isn't normally one of my chosen genres, I've really enjoyed some of Lynn Austin and Connilynn Cossette's books. When I heard about Mesu Andrews' Isaiah's Daughter, I was immediately intrigued by this story of a captive who would become queen. And, for better or w...

    As I've noted in my previous reviews of this author, Biblical fiction by Mesu Andrews never fails to send me running for my Bible to find the details she has brought to life! Half the time, I'm thinking, "She must have made that up!" only to find it right there in my Bible in black and...

    In Isaiah?s Daughter we follow Zibah. We watch her grow from a 5 year old, taken captive by the Ishraelites, to womanhood. After she?s been released from captivity, she ends up in the household of Isaiah himself as a little traumatized girl. Hezekiah also has been through quite a t...

    Isaiah's Daughter is historical fiction at its finest. Mesu Andrews does a marvelous job of telling the story of a young woman who first is depicted as a captive orphan who is adopted by a prophet, and ends up the queen of Judah, the beloved wife of King Hezekiah. Taking Biblical histo...

    I am really blown away with Isaiah?s Daughter. Author Andrews brought the political atmosphere to life between the divided countries of Israel and Judah. We start off when Hezekiah and his future wife are but children and both have endured horrific events. The voices of Hezekiah, Isa...

    Isaiah's Daughter is a book that you do not want to miss. Oh, this fiction novel is one that will deepen your walk with the Lord as you draw closer to him. His love, justice, mercy and righteousness are displayed in Hezekiah, Hephzibah and Isaiah. I have never studied the book of Isa...

    Although I've read several of Andrews' books, I'm drawn back over and over because I feel as though I'm there, seeing the Bible come alive.  For example, here's a prayer from Isaiah's Daughter that spoke to my heart: "God of our fathers, Giver of life and breath, You are our Rock, ...

    While biblical fiction isn't normally one of my chosen genres, I've really enjoyed some of Lynn Austin and Connilynn Cossette's books. When I heard about Mesu Andrews' Isaiah's Daughter, I was immediately intrigued by this story of a captive who would become queen. And, for better or w...

    As I've noted in my previous reviews of this author, Biblical fiction by Mesu Andrews never fails to send me running for my Bible to find the details she has brought to life! Half the time, I'm thinking, "She must have made that up!" only to find it right there in my Bible in black and...

    In Isaiah?s Daughter we follow Zibah. We watch her grow from a 5 year old, taken captive by the Ishraelites, to womanhood. After she?s been released from captivity, she ends up in the household of Isaiah himself as a little traumatized girl. Hezekiah also has been through quite a t...

    I am so glad that Mesu Andrews felt it impressed upon her heart to write this story. Honestly, I had never taken the time to envision or imagine what life must have been like for Isaiah as he passed along God?s prophecies. Likewise, I hadn?t thought about what it would have been ...

    This remarkable book is epic in the proportions of history and prophecy that are included in Hephzibah(Ishma) and King Hezekiah's story. Although this is biblical fiction, I feel that the author has opened my eyes to the world of the Israelites, to the worship of false gods and the hum...

    I have to give this one 5 stars because I am in awe of Mesu?s ability to make these characters come to life and set them to living and breathing on the page! Plus, my Bible-fiction-loving student reader has given this two thumbs way up as well :) Grab a copy today. ...

    A beautiful blend of Fiction and Facts to create a moving tribute to Hezekiah. The story is told through the point of view of Ishma, a Fictional character. Through Ishma's eyes readers experience life in 732 BC Judah. I especially enjoyed the reference to birds throughout the novel to ...

    Obvious intensive research brought to life this epic book about Hephzibah, the daughter of the prophet Isaiah in the Bible. Both Isaiah and his wife were listed as prophets in the Bible. Hephzibah was the wife of King Hezekiah, Judah's most righteous King, Hezekiah's father, Ahaz, was ...

    Hold on just one moment, please. *Reflects* Ahem. Okay. Now, I can review this book. This book. What can say about this poignant, stunning novel of epic proportions? I can tell you that this book will pull you in and twist you up inside, as you get to know Hephzibah, or Ishma as she's ...

    We must believe in Yahweh's best and let His plan unfold. I'm so glad I read this book. Usually I shy away from the Biblical Fiction genre, but not this time, and I'm so glad. I recently finished reading through the Kings and Chronicles books of the Bible and they had come alive in ...

    In her Author's Notes, Mesu Andrews writes, "Because God's Holy Scriptures are His living Word, they have been fulfilled in many ways in many generations and will be fulfilled in ways yet to come." (p 384) That really struck me as profound. Especially when I think about the Old Testame...

    EXCELLENT READ! Epic drama, adventure, love, treachery?Isaiah?s Daughter is all of that and more in this latest stellar novel by Mesu Andrews. The author brings to life Judah?s queen, the lovely Hephzibah, infusing each page with heart-stopping emotion and a pure, romantic love ...

    Interesting, but for a Biblical retelling? There were historical events from the Bible, but the license taken mostly with the main character, Hephzibah was just too much. If she hadn't been a biblical character, it might have worked for me. Hephzibah (King Hezekia's wife) is only m...

    It has been a long wait for this novel, but having just finished this enthralling read, I can say with absolute certainty that it was worth every minute of the wait. The world of 8th Century BC Judah really comes to life in this novel, which spans almost forty years of Judah?s histor...

    While reading Mesu Andrews?s new release, I hurt and fell in love with a little girl named Ishma. As that girl struggles with her fears of soldiers and of being alone, forges a friendship with a boy who will one day become king, and discovers a new family with the prophet Isaiah, I g...

    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...

    Mesu Andrews does an excellent job of drawing the reader back in time to the days of the Old Testament Bible. As you read her descriptions you not only can see the images but also "taste", "smell" and "touch" in your mind. It is as if you are there walking the dusty path, eating luscio...

    History and prophecy form a large part of the Bible, and it?s easy to imagine them belonging just to war and the realm of men. Mesu Andrews instead lets us view them through the eyes of women and peace, a change of viewpoint that results not just in an enticing historical romance but...

    Isaiah's Daughter by Mesu Andrews is a Biblical story of a warring divided nation ruled by an evil king who mocks King David's legacy and leaves those faithful to Yahweh praying and clinging to Him. Affected by the war, Ishma, meaning desolation, is an orphaned Hebrew girl who is also ...

    Isaiah's Daughter is historical fiction at its finest. Mesu Andrews does a marvelous job of telling the story of a young woman who first is depicted as a captive orphan who is adopted by a prophet, and ends up the queen of Judah, the beloved wife of King Hezekiah. Taking Biblical histo...

    I am really blown away with Isaiah?s Daughter. Author Andrews brought the political atmosphere to life between the divided countries of Israel and Judah. We start off when Hezekiah and his future wife are but children and both have endured horrific events. The voices of Hezekiah, Isa...

    As I've noted in my previous reviews of this author, Biblical fiction by Mesu Andrews never fails to send me running for my Bible to find the details she has brought to life! Half the time, I'm thinking, "She must have made that up!" only to find it right there in my Bible in black and...

    In Isaiah?s Daughter we follow Zibah. We watch her grow from a 5 year old, taken captive by the Ishraelites, to womanhood. After she?s been released from captivity, she ends up in the household of Isaiah himself as a little traumatized girl. Hezekiah also has been through quite a t...

    Isaiah's Daughter is historical fiction at its finest. Mesu Andrews does a marvelous job of telling the story of a young woman who first is depicted as a captive orphan who is adopted by a prophet, and ends up the queen of Judah, the beloved wife of King Hezekiah. Taking Biblical histo...

    I am really blown away with Isaiah?s Daughter. Author Andrews brought the political atmosphere to life between the divided countries of Israel and Judah. We start off when Hezekiah and his future wife are but children and both have endured horrific events. The voices of Hezekiah, Isa...

    I am so glad that Mesu Andrews felt it impressed upon her heart to write this story. Honestly, I had never taken the time to envision or imagine what life must have been like for Isaiah as he passed along God?s prophecies. Likewise, I hadn?t thought about what it would have been ...

    This remarkable book is epic in the proportions of history and prophecy that are included in Hephzibah(Ishma) and King Hezekiah's story. Although this is biblical fiction, I feel that the author has opened my eyes to the world of the Israelites, to the worship of false gods and the hum...

    I have to give this one 5 stars because I am in awe of Mesu?s ability to make these characters come to life and set them to living and breathing on the page! Plus, my Bible-fiction-loving student reader has given this two thumbs way up as well :) Grab a copy today. ...

    A beautiful blend of Fiction and Facts to create a moving tribute to Hezekiah. The story is told through the point of view of Ishma, a Fictional character. Through Ishma's eyes readers experience life in 732 BC Judah. I especially enjoyed the reference to birds throughout the novel to ...

    Obvious intensive research brought to life this epic book about Hephzibah, the daughter of the prophet Isaiah in the Bible. Both Isaiah and his wife were listed as prophets in the Bible. Hephzibah was the wife of King Hezekiah, Judah's most righteous King, Hezekiah's father, Ahaz, was ...

    In her Author's Notes, Mesu Andrews writes, "Because God's Holy Scriptures are His living Word, they have been fulfilled in many ways in many generations and will be fulfilled in ways yet to come." (p 384) That really struck me as profound. Especially when I think about the Old Testame...

    Interesting, but for a Biblical retelling? There were historical events from the Bible, but the license taken mostly with the main character, Hephzibah was just too much. If she hadn't been a biblical character, it might have worked for me. Hephzibah (King Hezekia's wife) is only m...

    It has been a long wait for this novel, but having just finished this enthralling read, I can say with absolute certainty that it was worth every minute of the wait. The world of 8th Century BC Judah really comes to life in this novel, which spans almost forty years of Judah?s histor...

    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...

    Mesu Andrews does an excellent job of drawing the reader back in time to the days of the Old Testament Bible. As you read her descriptions you not only can see the images but also "taste", "smell" and "touch" in your mind. It is as if you are there walking the dusty path, eating luscio...

    History and prophecy form a large part of the Bible, and it?s easy to imagine them belonging just to war and the realm of men. Mesu Andrews instead lets us view them through the eyes of women and peace, a change of viewpoint that results not just in an enticing historical romance but...

    Isaiah's Daughter by Mesu Andrews is a Biblical story of a warring divided nation ruled by an evil king who mocks King David's legacy and leaves those faithful to Yahweh praying and clinging to Him. Affected by the war, Ishma, meaning desolation, is an orphaned Hebrew girl who is also ...

    Mesu Andrews does an excellent job of drawing the reader back in time to the days of the Old Testament Bible. As you read her descriptions you not only can see the images but also "taste", "smell" and "touch" in your mind. It is as if you are there walking the dusty path, eating luscio...

    History and prophecy form a large part of the Bible, and it?s easy to imagine them belonging just to war and the realm of men. Mesu Andrews instead lets us view them through the eyes of women and peace, a change of viewpoint that results not just in an enticing historical romance but...

    Isaiah's Daughter by Mesu Andrews is a Biblical story of a warring divided nation ruled by an evil king who mocks King David's legacy and leaves those faithful to Yahweh praying and clinging to Him. Affected by the war, Ishma, meaning desolation, is an orphaned Hebrew girl who is also ...

    Isaiah?s Daughter is a wonderful beginning to Mesu Andrews?s whole new series, Prophets and Kings. This author is among my favorites that write in the Biblical Fiction genre. This book does not disappoint. The description and details are written so vivid, I felt like I was transpor...

    Although this novel is called Isaiah's Daughter, it brings to life a much larger, epic slice of scripture than the name might suggest. Here Andrews delves into the life of Hephzibah, "the Lord delights in her," daughter of Isaiah, wife of a righteous king and mother of a wicked one. Th...

    If you weren't already aware, Mesu Andrews has for a long time now been on my list of top five authors. I thought her first book was amazing, and they just keep getting better and better. This book is no exception. It's challenging, heartwarming, tragically sad, and extremely hopefu...

    While biblical fiction isn't normally one of my chosen genres, I've really enjoyed some of Lynn Austin and Connilynn Cossette's books. When I heard about Mesu Andrews' Isaiah's Daughter, I was immediately intrigued by this story of a captive who would become queen. And, for better or w...

    As I've noted in my previous reviews of this author, Biblical fiction by Mesu Andrews never fails to send me running for my Bible to find the details she has brought to life! Half the time, I'm thinking, "She must have made that up!" only to find it right there in my Bible in black and...

    In Isaiah?s Daughter we follow Zibah. We watch her grow from a 5 year old, taken captive by the Ishraelites, to womanhood. After she?s been released from captivity, she ends up in the household of Isaiah himself as a little traumatized girl. Hezekiah also has been through quite a t...

    Isaiah's Daughter is historical fiction at its finest. Mesu Andrews does a marvelous job of telling the story of a young woman who first is depicted as a captive orphan who is adopted by a prophet, and ends up the queen of Judah, the beloved wife of King Hezekiah. Taking Biblical histo...

    I am really blown away with Isaiah?s Daughter. Author Andrews brought the political atmosphere to life between the divided countries of Israel and Judah. We start off when Hezekiah and his future wife are but children and both have endured horrific events. The voices of Hezekiah, Isa...

    I am so glad that Mesu Andrews felt it impressed upon her heart to write this story. Honestly, I had never taken the time to envision or imagine what life must have been like for Isaiah as he passed along God?s prophecies. Likewise, I hadn?t thought about what it would have been ...

    This remarkable book is epic in the proportions of history and prophecy that are included in Hephzibah(Ishma) and King Hezekiah's story. Although this is biblical fiction, I feel that the author has opened my eyes to the world of the Israelites, to the worship of false gods and the hum...

    I have to give this one 5 stars because I am in awe of Mesu?s ability to make these characters come to life and set them to living and breathing on the page! Plus, my Bible-fiction-loving student reader has given this two thumbs way up as well :) Grab a copy today. ...

    A beautiful blend of Fiction and Facts to create a moving tribute to Hezekiah. The story is told through the point of view of Ishma, a Fictional character. Through Ishma's eyes readers experience life in 732 BC Judah. I especially enjoyed the reference to birds throughout the novel to ...

    We must believe in Yahweh's best and let His plan unfold. I'm so glad I read this book. Usually I shy away from the Biblical Fiction genre, but not this time, and I'm so glad. I recently finished reading through the Kings and Chronicles books of the Bible and they had come alive in ...

    In her Author's Notes, Mesu Andrews writes, "Because God's Holy Scriptures are His living Word, they have been fulfilled in many ways in many generations and will be fulfilled in ways yet to come." (p 384) That really struck me as profound. Especially when I think about the Old Testame...

    EXCELLENT READ! Epic drama, adventure, love, treachery?Isaiah?s Daughter is all of that and more in this latest stellar novel by Mesu Andrews. The author brings to life Judah?s queen, the lovely Hephzibah, infusing each page with heart-stopping emotion and a pure, romantic love ...

    Interesting, but for a Biblical retelling? There were historical events from the Bible, but the license taken mostly with the main character, Hephzibah was just too much. If she hadn't been a biblical character, it might have worked for me. Hephzibah (King Hezekia's wife) is only m...
