A stunning novel...

by Amanda on 5/25/2003

I was approached by my employer one day at work and she told me about a book she was reading that had caught her attention and thought I would like it, therefore lent it to me. When I recieved the book, I started reading it immediately and was plunged into a world I knew literally nothing about. I was completely gripped by the story and found myself unwilling to put it down for long, wondering what would happen between Michal and David next. Their life together through Michal's eyes was an intriguing journey with many twists and turns. I cannot rave more for this novel or it's author, India Edghill. It was one of the most memorable books I have ever read and I am sure that I will find myself reading it over and over again. Read More

"An intriguing and colorful retelling that incandescently illuminates and interprets an old story."
From the Publisher
Annotation The beautiful Michal, daughter of King Saul of Jerusalem, is betrothed to his successor, King David--but before the wedding can take place, he is forced to run for his life. Michal then enters into an arranged marriage with Phaltiel. When David and his army return and kill King Saul, he and Michal are reunited when she becomes his prisoner.This retelling of the Biblical tale has a feminist slant, as Michal learns not only to survive but to triumph.
Editors Note A retelling of the biblical story of King David and Queen Michal follows Michal, who lived and reigned in David's court for more than forty years, as she speaks about her hopes and fears while war, betrayal, death, and prophecy rage through the Promised Land.
