Love’s Sacred Song is a biblical work of fiction by Mesu Andrews about the Biblical book Song of Solomon.

Andrews makes the story come alive, and I love how I, as a reader, felt like I connected with the characters.

Arielah, the main character, is a treaty bride to King Solomon. She has always been in love with him, but he doesn’t feel the same.

When she proposes the idea that she could be his last wife and only love, he scoffs and mocks her; he has the weakness of his father David: women.

The book really brings out each verse of the Song of Solomon and changed my view of him. Previously, I was confused how someone so wise seemingly forgot about God and married hundreds of women. But after reading this book, the politics of the marriages and the duties of Solomon made a lot more sense.

The best part about the Song of Solomon is that it’s not just a love song from Solomon to a shepherd maiden, but a love song from God to His children: us. I give this book an easy five stars.
