Harvest of Rubies
This is a fantastic book. The journey that Sarah takes toward relying on the Lord is incredible. She finds her worth in Him; she learns who she is. It is a beautiful and powerful theme!
Sarah is the cousin of the prophet Nehemiah, and although unlikely she becomes a trusted scribe to the queen. After proving herself, the queen rewards her with an arranged marriage to a Persian noble, Darius. Through various trials and personal battles, Sarah takes a journey both physically and spiritually.
I read this one a while ago, but I loved it. It has strong characters, interesting settings, relationships, action, and suspense. I really appreciated the spiritual growth that Sarah experienced through the events in the story.
