Book Review: Love Lifted Me

I am excited to be sharing with you about this new novella that launched yesterday! It is a lovely piece of Old Testament historical fiction that has an interesting Cinderella/Song of Solomon storyline. 🙂

About the Book

Elaheh’s brothers are lazy and controlling …

When Elaheh’s parents die, she is devastated, especially when her brothers seem to not care at all. They slowly make her help them more and more in the vineyard until she is finally forced to do all of the work plus keeping the house clean and food ready.

When Prince Solomon comes to town to hear from the people, Elaheh talks to him to see if there is anything they can do. Solomon feels bad for Elaheh and searches for weeks to find something, but can’t. So he comes up with a plan.

Will Solomon be able to rescue Elaheh from her lazy brothers? Will Elaheh survive all the work she is forced to do? Can true love come to humble foreigner like Elaheh?

Inspired by Cinderella and Song of Solomon

My Review

This was an easy book to read (25,000 words – I read it in one sitting). The dialogue did seem a bit choppy at times and it was a little too fast paced for my liking. Overall, it was a very interesting read with a beautiful storyline. The author made you feel immersed in the Old Testament Jewish culture and did a good job with helping the reader connect with the characters. The book does have some romance, but it is very clean (shows the characters’ feelings for each other).
