Saul's Baby Daughter
Well written fiction tale of King David's first wife. Based on First and Second Samuel in the Bible, this book presents the love story of two people caught up in the hate and rage of then King Saul as he became the pursuer of David. How this affects the newlywed couple and their lives through ensuing years makes this a story well worth reading.
This was a book where I felt sad to see it end. I LOVED it. Michal came to “life” for me and my emotions rose and fell with hers.
Grateful for the opportunity to see Michal as a real woman not just a foolish wife. I was humbled by the fact that I probably would have done the same or worse. It is a beautifully written story!
