Dark Hour

The author, Ginger Arrett, takes the reader deep into biblical history. Into the bloody reign of Queen Athaliah and King Jehoram. Through Dark Hour, Arrett shows us how one woman saved the lineage of Jesus Christ, enabling the line of David to continue. We see a glimpse of evil, so dark and startling, it makes the lifting of the reader into light that much more powerful.

Dealing with my own personal problems at this moment, I couldn't have picked a better time to read this book. To see how one young and scared woman could save a nation, shows how even in despair, with God, we have the strength to pull ourself up. Bravo, Ginger!

I really liked this book! I normally don't read Biblical fiction, but this was riveting.
