The Hadassah Covenant by Tommy Tenney
The First Lady of Israel, Hadassah ben Yuda, is in danger. Someone wants her killed, but who? And, could it be linked to her family’s story … a story that details the friendship of the first Hadassah (otherwise known as Queen Esther) and her friend, Leah?
Ari Meyer is an undercover agent with the Mossad, a police unit within Iraq. On one of his missions, Ari uncovers a set of documents that could throw the whole nation of Israel into turmoil.
When Hadassah ben Yuda begins a search for her family’s history, she is introduced to Ari Meyer, and the two of them become entwined in a life-threatening search, as well as a race against time!
This sequel to “Hadassah: One Night with the King” was excellent! The tension was high, and the sections of Queen Esther’s journal that were interspersed with the modern-day story, made the book that much more compelling. I couldn’t wait to find out what would happen!
