"I command you to create an idol...one in which Yahweh, the God of the Jews, and Asherah, the Goddess of Phoenicia, are joined together as husband and wife..." - Jezebel, Queen of Ancient Israel.
For the past three thousand years, this mysterious young woman has been portrayed as the ultimate seducer, a murderess who stole and lied and cheated, the woman who fought against the prophet Elijah, and who forced her weak-willed husband to sin against God.
Was Jezebel a worshipper of idols, promiscuous and evil? Or is there another side to the story - is there another Jezebel who has, until now, remained hidden?
This Jezebel is a young Phoenician princess who journeys to Israel to become Queen, and who fights against the power of the Temple on behalf of all the women of the land. This Jezebel is a free-spirited young woman raised to be loved and admired by men, a Queen who wants to free her people from the constraints of a religion dominated by priests.
This is the woman against whom Israel's greatest prophet, Elijah, fights for the very soul of the nation.
In this spellbinding new novel, bestselling author Alan Gold re-creates one of the most notorious stories of the Bible. Seductive, passionate and surprising, Jezebel's story is like no other.
