In the Shadow of Jezebel: A Novel

By Mesu Andrews


In a kingdom controlled by cruel and manipulative women, one princess will discover the power of truth and love.

Trained as a priestess in the temple of Baal, Princess Jehosheba strives to please the demanding Queen Athaliah, daughter of Jezebel. But when a mysterious letter from the dead prophet Elijah predicts doom for the royal household, Jehosheba realizes that the dark arts she practices reach far beyond the realm of earthly governments.

Forced to marry Yahweh's high priest in order to further Athaliah and Jezebel's power plays, Jehosheba enters the unfamiliar world of Yahweh's Temple. Can her new husband show her the truth and love she craves? And can Jehosheba overcome her fear and save the family--and the nation--she loves?

Book Takeaway:

No power on earth can thwart God's ultimate plan. It also shows a woman broken by physical and emotional abuse who is slowly but completely healed through the power of God's love.

Why the author wrote this book:

The story of Jezebel's daughter, Queen Athaliah (2 Kings 11), has always bothered me. When I don't understand a Scripture, I feel compelled to research it. Writing this book helped me realize the depth of depravity Jezebel brought into Israel and her daughter Athaliah spread into Judah, but it also emphasized the complete sovereignty of our all-powerful God in what seemed a hopeless situation.
