Book Review: Harvest of Rubies by Tessa Afshar

Harvest of Rubies

The Synopsis:

“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 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?

My Review:

This book was ok, but I haven’t enjoyed it as much as I thought I would. There is nothing really bad about this book, it’s just that it is really slow and didn’t hold my attention. However, I do like the characters and the history throughout the book.

Some people might like it better than I did, but, I didn’t care for it all that much and don’t think I will be getting the sequel, Harvest of Gold.
