Remarkable talent threatens to cloud a life...

The prophet Nehemiah's cousin has been catapulted into the center of the Persian court -- working long hours, rubbing elbows with royalty, and becoming the queen's favorite scribe.

Not bad, for a woman living in a man's world. But a devastating past has left Sarah believing that God doesn't love her and that her achievements are the measure of her worth -- a measure she can never quite live up to.

Darius Pasargadae is accustomed to having his way. A wealthy and admired aristocrat, the last thing he expects is an arranged marriage to the queen's scribe, an intelligent woman who scorns him.

Can two such different people help one another overcome the idols that bind them?

Another great story from Tessa Afshar. I love how she delves into the Bible times and makes it come alive. She's a very talented story-teller who has clearly done her research well.

Great book!
5 stars By Sting, Dec 22 2016
Loved this book! The main character is very relatable! She goes through a journey to learn about God and how her relationship with him works. Set in a beautiful, colourful, changing scenery- the author is very engaging and has me off in a new world in a new time. Highly recommend this book.

Beautiful
5 stars By Hannah, Sep 18 2013
After loving the first book I read by this author (Pearl in the Sand), I was greatly looking forward to reading this one - and was certainly not disappointed. Once again she captivated me as she told the story of Sarah and the struggles she faced making her arranged marriage work in a time when wives were truly at the mercy of their husbands. I loved the historical accuracy, the depth of the characters, the practical wisdom woven through the fictional story and the stunning revelation of a God who is faithful to his children. A beautiful story. Can't wait to read more from this author.

Heartwarming
5 stars By Melissa, Oct 10 2012
I was excited to read this second book by Tessa Afshar and I was not disappointed.  (I really Loved Pearl in the Sand) 

Harvest of Rubies is a heart warming story set in the time of Nehemiah.  It was a beautiful romance and was enriched by the descriptions of the culture and fashion of the time.  

There were some noteworthy spiritual insights that touched my soul as well as enjoying a great story.   I couldn't put it down and am looking forward to her next novel.
