Publishers Description With a newfound faith in the one true God, King Hezekiah leads his nation into reform and revival, bringing God's blessings and renewed prosperity. But not every member of his court is pleased with the king's 'religious fanaticism.' And when Hezekiah stops paying tribute to Assyria, opposition to his leadership mounts. As Hezekiah seeks to obey God in every aspect of his life, he discovers that the Law forbids him to take multiple wives. He chooses Hephzibah. Their God-given love flourishes, but even here Hezekiah's faith will be severely tested. The king's precarious hold on the throne of Judah reaches critical proportions when the Assyrians invade the northern nation of Israel. A holocaust ensues, inciting ever closer to Judah and Jerusalem. One Israelite family escapes to Judah, including the young woman who just might carry the critical information Hezekiah needs to augment Jerusalem's defense. But with the Assyrians on the march, and his fortifications no match for their strength, can anyone really help? Paper.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Lord is My Song (Chronicles of the King #2)?
On my third set . . . Jul 1, 2003
I love this series so much that I have had to replace the entire set three times. I lend them out and they disappear! These are by far the finest novels that Ms. Austin has written. I was drawn into the story, and I just couldn't put the books down. Ms. Austin provides Scriptural references so it is easy to see what she is basing her story on. After reading the Scriptures, elements in the story that are taken right out of the Bible are easily discerned from those that the writer may be taking an artist license with. It breathed life into these characters and made them very relevant to me.
I immediately began reading the remaining books in the series, and every one was a delight. I enthusiastically recommend the series.
Soaring above its class, this is top-drawer writing Sep 16, 1999
The writing is well-done; the content is well-researched, inspirational, provoking AND entertaining!
Outstanding combination of prophecy, history, and fiction. Feb 28, 1999
In this book, Austin aligns the brief Biblical account of King Hezekiah to the words of the prophets of the times along an exciting line of fiction. Prophecies, often confusing or misunderstood suddenly come alive as they are placed into everyday situations and applied to specific situations. This book creates in your mind a thrilling scene of the reality of the despair of Israel and Judah and an understanding of the great compassion Yaweh has for his Chosen People. After reading this book, you will never read prophecy the same again.
