If you enjoy historical romance/drama that is set in Biblical times, this is the book for you. I just finished reading "The Queen's Handmaid" by Tracy Higley. I will admit that when I started the book, I wasn't too sure about it. I didn't understand the politics and I kept getting people confused. But about halfway through the book, it started clicking for me. There is so much mystery and drama and intrigue in this book, I just couldn't put it down at the end.
Higley has obviously done her research for this book. The book is set in 39 BC and most of the conflict is between the countries and governments of Egypt and Judea. Lydia, a handmaid in the story, knows she has an important role to play in her life, but she doesn't realize for such a long time how important she really is. The book is a great story of how God has everything planned out for our lives.
Thank you to Litfuse Publicity and Thomas Nelson for a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
