Lynn Austin has won three Christy Awards for her inspiring historical novels, which include Candle in the Darkness. The second book in her Chronicles of the Kings series, Song of Redemption is a retelling of the life of Hezekiah, King of Judah from 716 to 687 BC.

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.

    " I am loving this series. There are five in all. Lynn Austin has such a wonderful way of telling a story that has significant Christian undertones. I find them inspiring as I see parallels in our own world today. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Margie Carothers | 2/7/2014

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sandra | 1/23/2014

    " It is always interesting to read historical fiction. I know it is probably not very close to the truth...yet it does make me wonder about the people who lived in Isaiah's time, and appreciate him as a prophet a little more. Mostly the book has me asking myself---How much faith do I really have? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Teri Moote | 1/22/2014

    " #2 in the series. This one focuses on King Hezekiah's reign, the fight against idolatry, and the growth of faith in several characters. I'm still fascinated. Good story telling and interesting characters give me a new depth and dimension to what it may have been like in the time of King Hezekiah and the advance of the Assyrian army. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stephanie | 6/16/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 MaryAnn Benson | 10/5/2012

    " I always like it when a book makes me want to open my Bible and read the story there. This series of books shows that the time of Hezekiah was actually a lot like America today.
