Description

For over forty 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.

Professional reviews

"In a novelization based on scripture, India Edghill portrays David, the Bible's giant-slayer, as immoral, selfish, and often cruel. Suzanne Toren speaks the first-person narration of David's first wife, Michal, whom David abandoned the day after their wedding and reclaimed after ten years of her marriage to another man. Toren's solemn tones and pacing convey the harsh struggles of life in Israel circa 1,000 B.C. An odd elongated pronunciation of David's name distracts the listener from the story's flow. However, Toren's differentiation of the many women in the story enhances Edghill's text with subtle shades of character and personality. Male characters show lesser skill, except for David, who sounds real enough to slap. R.P.L. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine"
