*This is a rather long story but a really good read and worth it.
I liked the fact that it is a biblical historic fiction story. This is the story of David's first wife Michal and the trials and tribulations she endures at the hand of her father King Saul and her husband King David. Michal is a girl who just wants the love of her life to respect her and cherish only her. When her father banishes David from his kingdom he promises Michal that he will come for her, that he will love only her. As time goes on, David stays in exile for many years and Michal's brother Jonathan forces her to take a husband (in order to get away from their father and his palace). Michal learns to care and love Philati but always tries to find David to be with her one love forever. When she learns he has taken other wives she is outraged, but takes him back and finds happiness with Philati and they end up having a daughter of their own before King David rips her away from them and reclaims her as his Queen.
Cost/Available to purchase: $3.82 Kindle Version
Recommendation: I really enjoyed reading this book and learning the story of Michal and David. Everyone has heard of David beating Goliath and King David of Israel but hearing this other side was so interesting to me. I enjoy getting to know the characters in the stories I read and I am a fan of all these characters. Even when they are making horrible choices and it's so obvious what they need to do, but then it wouldn't be a story now would it?! I feel for Michal and all that she endured by the hands of the people she loved and trusted the most. I definitely recommend this book for anyone who enjoys historical fiction, fiction, and just good ole love stories.
