Bilqis, the Queen of Sheba, is a woman as modern as her story is ancient. Constantly in conflict with priests and high lords of her kingdom, she longs for love but fears that she may lose her throne if she chooses the wrong man. In Solomon, she finds both love and a new faith, the covenant between man and woman and the convenant between humankind and God.

Grandmistress of biblical fiction, Dorr (Abraham and Sarah, Moorings: Ballantine, 1995) offers two superb and compelling accounts of the life and loves of King Solomon. Solomon's Song traces Solomon's love for his father David's intended bride, Shulamit. Political and familial intrigue dominate Dorr's retelling of one of the Bible's least-known love stories. In The Queen of Sheba, Dorr explores in grand detail the relationship of Solomon and Bilqis, the wise queen who shared Solomon's vast wisdom and riches. Dorr's powerful account offers insights into Bilqis's search for truth, love, and faith in a foreign kingdom. In each of these novels, Dorr exercises her considerable skill to unveil the mysteries and passions of the biblical narratives. Highly recommended.
