Love's Sacred Song

By Mesu Andrews


Standing in the 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.

But how can this simple shepherdess live as part of Solomon's harem? Can Solomon set aside his distractions to give himself completely to just one woman? Or will he let duty, deception, and the daily routine divide his heart?

Book Takeaway:

The love of Jesus Christ is ferocious, unyielding, and steadfast; however, He is a Gentleman and will never force His love on an unwilling heart. It's up to us to invite Him into our busy lives, making time for the intimacy He desires.

Why the author wrote this book:

I'm a stubborn Bible student, and the thought of reading the Song of Solomon without understanding or context for the rest of my life was totally unacceptable! So I read all eight chapters everyday for a year and studied the later years of David's reign and tried to understand the context of Solomon's early rule. Through that study, a story emerged--a story that mirrored Jesus Christ's love and pursuit of my heart. My relationship with my Savior has been changed forever while writing this book.


"The storyline from Mesu caused me to venture in and read Song of Songs in its entirety from my Bible without interruption and with a new set of lenses for my eyes."
