Welcome to First Line Friday, hosted by Hoarding Books! I’m deep in the world of 8th Century BC Judah this week, thoroughly engrossed in Mesu Andrews’ new release Isaiah’s Daughter. I can’t wait to share my review with you all tomorrow!
You’ve probably noticed that Carrie is sharing the first line from Isaiah’s Daughter on Hoarding Books blog, so I’m going to share the first line from chapter two today. I think you’ll find it follows on nicely from the first line of chapter one!
~ About the Book ~
Isaiah adopts Ishma, giving her a new name–Zibah, delight of the Lord–thereby ensuring her royal pedigree. Ishma came to the prophet’s home, devastated after watching her family destroyed and living as a captive. But as the years pass, Zibah’s lively spirit wins Prince Hezekiah’s favor, a boy determined to rebuild the kingdom his father has nearly destroyed. But loving this man will awake in her all the fears and pain of her past and she must turn to the only One who can give life, calm her fears, and deliver a nation.

I was tired of being brave, and I hated donkeys.
