LOVE’S SACRED SONG
by Mesu Andrews
A love story about King Solomon, in the old days of Israel.
A love story about the little Shumenite woman who knew from her early childhood that she would one day be his bride.
A story woven with the intricacies of court life in and out of a harem, the political picture of the time, and the many underlying schemes which always go along with people who want to sway a king to their own opportunities.
A very powerful story with a definite basis in the Bible (especially in the books of Samuel, Chronicles, Kings, and of course, Song of Solomon in the Old Testament).
Sometimes it is difficult to see how God is working in our lives, but this story makes it clear that even though we cannot see His way, we should abide by His commands and promises and let Him do His work. The little shepherdess, Arielah, captures the promises of her Lord and never gives up on His promises to her. This is a woman raised by very godly parents who also know the promise and do their part to fulfill it.
Many interesting facts of life during that time are made known, and it is eye-opening to come to an understanding of all the intrigue and mystery going on amongst the leaders and even the lowliest of citizens during the time of Solomon. He, indeed, was a wise man, as wisdom was the gift given him by the Lord, but he was also a man and one who made many mistakes.
Though Love's Sacred Song is a work of fiction with a basis in the truth of the Bible, it is wonderful to have this part of history brought to life in such an interesting and loving way.
