I am so glad that Mesu Andrews felt it impressed upon her heart to write this story. Honestly, I had never taken the time to envision or imagine what life must have been like for Isaiah as he passed along God’s prophecies. Likewise, I hadn’t thought about what it would have been like for the wife...
