In this spellbinding novel, bestselling author Alan Gold re-creates one of the most notorious stories of the Bible.
Seductive, passionate and surprising, Jezebel's story is like no other. For the past three thousand years, Jezebel has been portrayed as the ultimate seducer, a murderess who stole and lied and cheated, the woman who fought against the prophet Elijah.
But was this mysterious young woman really promiscuous and evil? Or is there another side to the story , another Jezebel who has, until now, remained hidden? This Jezebel is a young Phoenician princess who journeys to Israel to become Queen, and who fights against the power of the Temple on behalf of all the women of the land.
This Jezebel is a free-spirited young woman raised to be loved and admired by men, a Queen who wants to free her people from the constraints of a religion dominated by priests. This Jezebel is the woman against whom Israel's greatest prophet, Elijah, fights for the very soul of the nation.
