Publisher's Summary

This rich and powerful retelling of the great biblical story of King David and Queen Michal paints a truly provocative portrait of the royal couple.

Michal, a wise and loving woman who refuses to compromise her soul, thrives in her own ways under the rule of her greedy and ambitious husband, David.

For over 40 years, Michal lived and reigned in David's court. She was the beautiful and proud daughter of King Saul and the prize David would risk his kingdom to win. Behind the palace doors, beneath the burning sun of the desert, or fleeing from Absalom's warriors, Michal was at the center of court intrigues.

Queenmaker introduces in unforgettable detail the characters of one of the greatest periods in Biblical history - their public deeds and private thoughts - and gives us the court of the kings as only a woman could see it.

Critic Reviews

"A riveting debut tale in the tradition of Anita Diamant's The Red Tent - and as good." (Kirkus Reviews)

Liked it and didn't like it

I liked the beginning, but it gets more and more bitter and WAY far off the actual bible events.
