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?

Threatens to cloud a life
The prophet Nehemiah has a cousin who can speak several languages, keep complex accounts, write on rolls of parchment and tablets of clay, and solve mysteries.
This cousin is catapulted into the center of the Persian court - working long hours, rubbing elbows with royalty, and completing high-level tasks as a scribe for the queen.
Not bad, for a woman living in a man’s world.
The talented Sarah has a glowing future, and those closest to her believe her good fortune is the product of none other than God’s glorious design. Yet a devastating past has left Sarah with two strong conclusions: that God does not love her, and that her accomplishments are the measure of her worth.
The only thing that will help her escape her idol of success, Sarah must learn to love and be loved – a task that could prove dangerous.
