I don’t read much Biblical fiction, but when I do, Connilyn Cossette and Tessa Afshar are my go-to authors. I know when I read their stories I will be whisked back in time and totally absorbed in the stories they tell. The Hidden Prince does exactly that! I loved this story from start to finish.
There are so many wonderful characters! Daniel, Jared, Keren, and the shepherd boy she is eventually tasked to teach to name a few. This story is so immersive and so many unexpected things happen. There was one thing that literally had my jaw dropping and other things that I never saw coming- at all! While I loved both Keren and Jared and how their relationship evolved and showed true forgiveness, my favorite character was the boy that Keren was teaching. His story is amazing and his personality made me love him from the first time he appeared on the page!
This is a story that I didn’t want to end! I wanted to keep reading about these characters. Highly recommended!

When she overhears whispers that hint at his true identity, she realizes she must protect him from the schemes of a bloodthirsty king.
