Master Hiram and King Solomon, Paperback / softback Book

Master Hiram and King Solomon Paperback / softback


980 B.C. Having succeeded in bringing peace and prosperity to his people, King Solomon, the son of David, is determined to build a magnficient temple on the rock of Jerusalem.

A temple where the sacred Ark of the Covenant could be housed.

A temple to rival in splendour the great pyramids of Egypt: a land he both loathed and admired.

As no Hebrew craftsman could succeed in such an enterprise, Solomon summoned an expert mason from Phoenicia: Master Hiram, a strange, solitary man well-versed in the innovative techniques of Egyptian architecture.

So began an uneasy friendship between the King and the craftsman.

A friendship which bridged two very different cultures and civilisations.

A friendship thrown in turmoil when the two men fell in love with the same woman: Balkis, the beautiful Queen of Sheba.
