From the Publishers:

A Vivid and Moving Portrait of a Reluctant Queen

After sending his army to besiege another king's capital, King David forces himself on Bathsheba, a loyal soldier's wife. When her resulting pregnancy forces the king to murder her husband and add her to his harem, Bathsheba struggles to protect her son while dealing with the effects of a dark prophecy and deadly curse on the king's household.

Combining historical facts with detailed fiction, Angela Hunt paints a realistic portrait of the beautiful woman who struggled to survive the dire results of divine judgment on a king with a divided heart.

Bathsheba by Angela Hunt is the second book in her Dangerous Beauty series. It's a blend of historical fact and fiction regarding the age old biblical story of Bathsheba and King David. 

Ms. Hunt brings refreshing new life to a well known story through her insight, creativity and writing style. I really enjoyed reading Bathsheba.  

One of the main reasons is how Ms. Hunt made this story and it's characters come to life.  My heart ached with Bathsheba and quaked for the decisions David made. The story just drew me in and kept me engaged from start to finish.  

I highly recommend Bathsheba  and I am giving this book  ~ 4.5 Stars!

A big thank you to Bethany House Publishers and Netgalley for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
