Cover Attraction: Harvest of Rubies by Tessa Afshar

It has been faaaarrrr too long since I last did a Cover Attraction post. This feature used to be a regular deal every Friday...maybe I can get with the program again over here (a whole two years later). :o)

Title:  Harvest of Rubies
Author:  Tessa Afshar
Release Date:  May 1, 2012
Publisher:  Moody Publishers

About the book:

The prophet Nehemiah's cousin can speak numerous languages, keep complex accounts, write on rolls of parchment and tablets of clay, and solve great mysteries. There is only one problem: she is a woman.

In her early childhood years, Sarah experienced the death of her mother and her father's subsequent emotional distance and she came to two conclusions: that God does not care about her, and that her accomplishments are the measure of her worth - the measure of her self.

Sarah, the talented scribe and cousin to Nehemiah, is catapulted into the center of the Persian court, working too many hours, rubbing elbows with royalty, and solving intrigues for the Queen. Ironically, it isn't failure but success that causes Sarah to lose her only source of external validation.

Sarah soon learns that she has something of worth to offer beyond her ability with languages and sums - her very being proves to be a blessing to others.
