Book Review - Harvest of Rubies (Harvest of Rubies, #1) by Tessa Afshar

A woman who speaks, reads and write multiple languages, manages complex accounts along with solving mysteries -- that's completely unheard of! Thanks to the counsel of her cousin Nehemiah, Sarah was able to work as a senior scribe for the Queen. Sarah has a knack for picking up every nuances and elegances of the written word. However, how great Sarah is with the written word -- she still struggles with the spoken word.  Known for her inability to filter the truth; Sarah can't help always getting herself in trouble especially in a male dominated world.

In exchange for helping the Queen, Sarah is engaged to an admired and wealthy noble that is used to having his way. With two different worlds clashing, will the couple be able to survive the differences? Sarah who has lost her faith in God and constantly feels unloved, insufficient, and alone while Darius has his own demons. The story entwines a love story with believing in God and faith. The book moves very quickly in the beginning but I feel like the ending was a bit drawn out.  I believe, this was because to lead into the next book. A good and touching story for everyone who ever felt alone to know that there is someone always out there who does care for you.

**Disclosure - I received a free copy of this book for my honest opinion**
