Full Product Description
This is your long awaited doorway into one of the least told stories of the Bible that has surprising and godly truth to reveal. On the surface it’s an age old story that still resonates in our era where arranged marriages are still in the headlines, and a woman must prove strong and independent to claim her own destiny.
In Jezebel, we find a young woman is given to a man not of her choosing with nothing in common - neither nation, nor station nor worship. Can any good come of such a union?
It is hard for any but followers of biblical retellings and scripture based romantic fiction to view this story for what it is without prior biblical misconceptions. But Ginger Garrett takes you through the familiar biblical scenes of the priests of Jezebel, her struggles with Ahab and the constant pleadings of the prophet and God of Israel, the great Elijah.
Jezebel had given everything for a throne - and with Ahab a weak ruler, Jezebel takes on his role as ruler and has strength to follow her convictions in the face of opposition, as proven in the scandal of Naboth’s vineyard. Sparking a battle between her strangely powerless gods and the God of her palace administrator, Obadiah, she will fight, though victory may cost her everything.
This fascinating insight on one of the Bible’s most overlooked and misunderstood women mixes romance, intrigue and power struggles with everything at stake and has much to teach about the Bible and the way women are still treated – even in our own society, today.

From the moment her marriage to prince Ahab thrusts her into the intrigues of palace life, Jezebels exotic beauty opens doors and her will breaks down walls. Torn from her homeland and wed to power in a strange country, Jezebel vows to create a legacy and power all her own. Some might call her a manipulative schemer, bent on having her way. But they dont know the whole story, and she was much, much worse.
As she moves through the halls of power, her heart struggles between devotion to the gods she worships, the prince who loves her, and her thirst for revenge. She sparks a battle between her strangely powerless gods and the God of palace administrator Obadiah-a God who confronts her with surprising might. She will fight, though victory may cost her everything.
“Ginger Garrett has written a refreshingly beautiful, descriptive, and haunting story of Queen Jezebel. If you don’t know the biblical story of Jezebel, you can read it in the Bible in 1 Kings 16 through 1 Kings 22, and in 2 Kings 9 and 2 Kings 10. Her writing is obviously fictional, though thoroughly researched. It seems as if she’s taken great pains to make sure her story is as accurate as can be with as little detail that is known about Jezebel and her reign over Israel.”
