Free read Ó The Last ueen of Sheba 102 Review ✓ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Ø Jill Francis Hudson Characters The Last ueen of Sheba A vividly realized and beautifully crafted novel focused around the fabled meeting between Sheba and SolomonAgainst all odds Makeda daughter of an obscure African chieftain is chosen as ueen of all Sheba Recognizing her own inexperience yet desperately wanting to address Sheba's appalling social injustice she is persuaded by her cousin Tamrin wealthy merchant and narrator of the novel to visit Solomon King of Israel to find out about how he governs his kingdom She is hugely impresse. Critics or purists who prefer Bible stories to be free of fictionalization may not care for the concept of this book since its premise is based on just a few lines of scripture in the Old Testament the meeting of the ueen of Sheba and King Solomon David s son Yet I found the book incredibly insightful and supportive of Biblical precepts The book is professionally detailed a book that speculates how it could have happened Special kudos goes out to Jill Francis Hudson for this epic tale of two young rulers The Last ueen of Sheba is one of the greatsAs far as I can discern there are four basic divisions in the story line1 Events leading up to choosing Makeda as ueen of Sheba Once she was chosen there was a certain amount of political turmoil she had to overcome Then some troubling events led to Makeda s decision to visit King Solomon of Israel2 The ueen of Sheba s actual visit with Solomon3 The ueen s return to Sheba and her rule of her country from her family palace in Yeha Ethiopia4 The Conseuences of Sheba s visit Some loose ends are resolved while we read about the downfall of Solomon The story is told in the first person by Tamrin the Merchant The wealthy merchant has traveled extensively and amassed for himself riches and an an enterprising business with contacts all over Arabia Egypt Ethiopia and even Israel and its neighbors In fact his most recent visit with Solomon garnered him a commission from the King for materials needed to embellish the Temple he was building for God In addition to conducting business with Solomon Tamrin treasured the philosophical discussions with the wise and humble man The young king wanted his friend to know his God Adonai as well Their talks gave Tamrin much to think about on his long journeys through the desertsThis book is much than just a political commentary of a remote ueen Through the author s skillful writing and storytelling ability people jump off the pages and become real The conflicts grip us and become personal to us When ueen Makeda returned from Israel she turned her country on its head She introduced many reforms that turned an oppressed people into prosperous citizens She brought from Israel principles from the law of Moses that turned her country from an uneasy unstable agglomeration of disparate tribes whose only reason for suppressing their mutual hatred was the fact that they hated non Shebans to a country that worshiped and honored God Adonai Twenty years after Makeda was chose ueen of Sheba Tamrin the Merchant had to return to Jerusalem with a representative of Sheba s royal council In contrast to Sheba s now orderly happy and prosperous state what greeted his eyes shocked and distressed him Israel decline was evident everywhere he looked Even shocking was King Solomon himself He appeared haggard and even older than the merchant The reason for such a decline was even shocking That is something you ll discover when you read this book Tamrin was not even as welcome as before until Solomon met the Sheban emissary Eventually they returned to Sheba with sad news for ueen Makeda but with something important for the people and for God s temple in Yeha What I like best about this book is the meticulous detail the author uses to make the settings and circumstances interesting and relevant for the reader By researching the Kebra Nagast the national Ethiopian epic Islamic and Jewish legends and literature and archaeological information Ms Hudson was able to move way beyond common knowledge to treat her readers to so much intricate detail While I felt the beginning of the tale was a little slow moving once the events ramped up so did the intensity and suspense The remainder of the story was terse I had a hard time finding a place to stop reading when I needed to The beginning set up is filled with necessary background information making the faster moving accounts flow naturally and easier to comprehend This is definitely one of my favorite biblically based historical fiction books of all time I will be looking for this author s other works as soon as I can I highly recommend this book for high school college age and older readers As for younger readers than I just mentioned the subject material may be a bit mature than they can handle If I were to rate the book it would be given a PG 13 rating for some adult topics Disclosure of Material Connection I received a complimentary review copy of this book from The Book Club Network on behalf of the author and Kregel Publications I was not reuired to write a positive review The opinions I have expressed are my own I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission s 16 CFR Part 255 Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising

The Last ueen of Sheba was a mesmerizing book for me While reading this and for a whole week I was dreaming this book In my dreams I was in the halls and court of the great wise king Solomon I don t normally read a lot of Biblical fiction however this book intrigued me due to its subject matter I always found the account of The ueen of Sheba and Solomon found in both I Kings 101 3 and 2 Chronicles 91 12 as interesting Jesus also mentions her in the New Testament in Mathew 1242 and also Luke 1131 Who was this ueen where exactly did she come from and what was her background story Ms Hudson gives us a plausible story and sites her historical information and sources at the end of the book In my homeschooling journey with my children I had come across the Ethiopian Jews and their journey to Israel to escape communism and their belief that they were descended from Menelik whom some believe is the son of Solomon and the ueen of Sheba I have also read accounts that some Ethiopian Christians believe that the Ark of the Covenant is located and closely guarded in Ethiopia Ms Hudson does mention this in her historical research and also a great deal Something else I have always wondered about why did the wisest man in the world choose to live the latter part of his life in the way that he did How in the world could you have so many wives and concubines and let them set up alters to their gods especially when he started his reign on the right path and the teachings that he was brought up with What made this wisest of men fallTold through the eyes of the ueen of Sheba s uncle Tamrin we are told the background of the ueen we travel to Israel and back over a 20 plus year period watch the glorious dedication of the Temple and finally the deterioration of Israel right before the Nation of Israel split with 10 tribes separating themselves from King David s heirs I could go on about this book but this review is long enough This was a riveting read for me and I thank The Book Club Network TBCN for my review copy The opinions expressed are my own
