LAST DAY ENTER
BACK COVER: The prophet Nehemiah's cousin can speak numerous languages, keep complex accounts, write on rolls of parchment and tablets of clay, and solve great mysteries. There is only one problem: she's a woman in a man's court.
In her early childhood years, Sarah experienced the death of her mother and her father's subsequent emotional distance, and she came to two conclusions: God does not care about me, and my accomplishments are the measure of my worth.
Catapulted into the center of the Persian court, Sarah is working too many hours, rubbing elbows with royalty, and solving intrigues for the Queen. Ironically, it isn't failure—but success—that causes Sarah to lose her only source of external validation.
Sarah soon learns that she has something of worth to offer beyond her ability with languages and sums; her very being
proves to be a blessing to others, particularly the aristocrat Darius, whom she is given to in marriage.
Sarah and Darius' story continues in Harvest of Gold. Darius may be able to learn to love his wife, but can he ever learn to trust Sarah and her Lord?

I love to read books about people who are in the Bible. It brings the Bible alive. But it must be biblically sound.
1) I love to see stories in the bible fleshed out more! I know the authors have to add stuff to make a whole story, but it helps me get a better understanding of biblical times.
I love the way biblical fiction brings the scriptures to life and makes it easier to picture the lifestyle of the time period.

#1 I love reading biblical fiction because the books can really bring to life what it was like to live in biblical time.
Most book are really well researched and full of little details about day to day life that I never even thought about. :)
