Austin's fascinating, insightful, biblically based fictionalized account of King Hezekiah of Judah brings the Old Testament to life in a way that will take the listener back to those incredibly tumultuous times. She bases her book on the main events in the life of Hezekiah, the prophets Isaiah and Micah, the land of Israel, and the city of Judah. In particular, she relates how the Assyrian army surrounded Hezekiah's kingdom and how his close advisors disagreed with his ideas of governing by divine law; they wanted him to make peace with the atrocious bullies. Austin's descriptive page-turner is rich in history. Read by Suzanne Toren, Song of Redemption is an informative, enlightening, and engaging novel. Recommended for popular historical fiction collections. Carol Stern, Glen Cove P.L., NY

When King Hezekiah discovers that God's Law forbids him to take multiple wives, he must choose one woman to love. He must also choose to trust God's promises when he decides to rebel against his powerful Assyrian overlords. Hezekiah seeks to strengthen his nation's fortifications by building a tunnel in Jerusalem to hide his water supply. The tension mounts as the Assyrians march closer--and Hezekiah's tunnel remains incomplete. With his officials advising him to submit to the Assyrians, Hezekiah's faith is once more severely tested. Chronicles of the King Book 2.
