Teaser Tuesday: Bathsheba: A Novel (The Wives of King David) by Jill Eileen Smith

hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading ~

Bathsheba: A Novel (The Wives of King David)
"Yes, I don't think anyone else would sit so close to the king." Bathsheba leaned in, making sure not to be overheard. "They don't look too festive, do they?"

~ page 82 “Bathsheba: A Novel (The Wives of King David)" by Jill Eileen Smith

About the Book (from Amazon):
Bathsheba is a woman who longs for love. With her devout husband away fighting the king's wars for many months at a time, discontent and loneliness dog her steps--and make it frighteningly easy to succumb to King David's charm and attention. Though she immediately regrets her involvement with the powerful king, the pieces are set in motion that will destroy everything she holds dear. Can she find forgiveness at the feet of the Almighty? Or has her sin separated her from God--and David--forever?

With a historian's sharp eye for detail and a novelist's creative spirit, Jill Eileen Smith brings to life the passionate and emotional story of David's most famous--and infamous--wife. Smith uses her gentle hand to draw out the humanity in her characters, allowing readers to see themselves in the three-dimensional lives and minds of people who are often viewed in starkly moralistic terms. You will never read the story of David and Bathsheba in the same way again.
I always look forward to reading everyone's teasers! ~ Wendi

I always like books about palace intrigue. This seems to have it in spades! Have you read "The False Princess" by Eilis O'Neal yet? My favorite "palace" book so far this year!

I hope you like Goodkind when/if you get to him. So far, I do! :)
