"Harvest of Gold" by Tessa Afshar picks up where "Harvest of Rubies" left off. At the beginning of the book, Sarah and Darius discover and foil a plot to assassinate King Artaxerxes. Although their relationship is strained, Sarah finds herself pregnant just before she, Darius, and her Uncle Nehemiah set off toward Jerusalem to orchestrate the rebuilding of the wall surrounding the city. Tensions increase when it appears Sarah has miscarried while on the journey to Jerusalem...before telling her husband that she was pregnant to begin with. Amazingly, the Lord works through Nehemiah to help Darius deal with a hurtful time during his childhood which allows him to come to grips with his true feelings for his wife.
I enjoyed getting to know the main characters better in this book and think to get the most of the story, reading "Harvest of Rubies" is a must.
