The Queen’s Handmaid by Tracy L. Higley
The Queen’s Handmaiden by Tracy L. Higley is a great read but even more than that, a history tool. Ms. Higley clarifies the Biblical timeline and backs up her story with what she calls ‘the story behind the story.’ On top of that she weaves a love story through the whole thing Her heroine, the slave,Lydia, has to deal with Herod, Octavia, Cleopatra and many others. I hope there is a sequel.
We forget that in Biblical times, people were real, and suffered as we do, even loved as we do.
This is my first experience with Tracy L. Higley’s writing but I shall look for her in future. Some of her other books include So Shines the Night, Garden of Madness and Isle of Shadows.
Thomas Nelson Publishers gave me a free copy of this book in return for a fair and honest review.
