Get swept away by a story of love, loss, and longing
King Solomon could–and did–have anything he wanted, including many women from many lands. But for all of his wealth and wisdom, did he or the women he loved ever find what they were searching for?
In this engrossing novel, find yourself whisked away to ancient Israel, where you’ll meet four remarkable women: Naamah the desert princess, Abishag the shepherdess, Siti the daughter of a pharaoh, and Nicaula the queen of Sheba. As you experience the world of Solomon through his eyes and theirs, you’ll grapple with whether this king’s storied wisdom ultimately benefited him and those he loved . . . or betrayed them.
