Must Get Monday – Jerusalem’s Daughter

Posted by abakersp in Must Get Monday / 2 Comments

Happy Monday everyone! Welcome to Must Get Monday, hosted by The Becca Files. Every Monday I’m going to feature a new book to add to your TBR piles. Why? Well because they just aren’t big enough! Just kidding. Sort of. I enjoy hearing about new releases, and so why not share that with you!?

Last week I read Jenna Van Mourik’s debut novel and I have to say, it was such an amazing read. It was like multiple love stories all rolled into one. Shamira and Asa’s love for each other, Shamira’s love for her family, our love for the Lord, and the Lord’s love for us. I’ll be posting my review soon, but I can say this – you will love this story!!!

Having grown up in the impoverished lower city of Jerusalem, Shamira is no stranger to injustice at the hands of the Pharisees and Sadducees. Her family is shunned by many in the Jewish community who believe that their misfortune in life is the result of a secret sin. Rumors are spreading of a nearby healer with incredible abilities; if the stories are true, then the Messiah may be near, and Shamira will stop at nothing in the pursuit of a miracle.

Asa spends every day at the temple under the tutelage of his strict father, an elite Levite priest who enforces the laws without mercy. Between the growing demands of the Roman government and the threats of the Zealots, tensions are high. When Shamira, the girl who stole his heart years ago, asks him to help her find the healer called Jesus, he must choose to either follow in his father’s footsteps or forge his own path.

Shamira knows that both her life and the lives of her loved ones could be changed forever, but only if she can find a way to speak to the man called Jesus of Nazareth before it's too late.
