Harvest of Gold

In Harvest of Gold (Book 2) the scribe Sarah married Darius, and at times she feels as if she has married the Persian aristocracy, too. There is another point she did not count on in her marriage-Sarah has grown to love her husband. Sarah has wealth, property, honor, and power, but her husband's love still seems unattainable.

Although his mother was an Israelite, Darius remains skeptical that his Jewish wife is the right choice for him, particularly when she conspires with her cousin Nehemiah to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem. Ordered to assist in the effort, the couple begins a journey to the homeland of his mother's people. Will the road filled with danger, conflict, and surprising memories, help Darius to see the hand of God at work in his life-and even in his marriage?

A hidden message, treachery, opposition, and a God-given success, will lead to an unlikely bounty.

I highly recommend this book to book lovers and readers of Biblical fiction. I would recommend reading the first book in the series first called: Harvest of Rubies.

This book is a sequel to the first book. Without reading the first book, you could get a little lost in the beginning but this book could also be read along without reading the first book too.

When I started this book, I couldn't put it down. This book was much more exciting than the first book. It was about assisination plots with more exciting characters. I wanted to jump into the book and experience it firsthand.

The author really brings the Bible characters to life. I kinda wish that the imagination station was real so I can go back in time and experience all of the past in real life and be an observer to history.
