A Peek at Bathsheba

(1 customer review)


From USA Today Bestselling Author, Uvi Poznansky, comes a breathtaking historical fiction novel with a modern twist:

The most torrid tale of passion ever told: David’s forbidden love for Bathsheba, and his attempt to cover up the scandal. Will he muster the strength needed to protect her and save their son from danger?

This is volume II of the trilogy The David Chronicles, told candidly by the king himself. David uses modern language, indicating that this is no fairytale. Rather, it is a story that is happening here and now. Listen to his voice as he undergoes a profound change, realizing the curse looming over his entire future.

If you like middle eastern historical romance and forbidden love affair, this King David novel has a modern twist like no book you have read before, bringing King David of the bible to life against the background of Israel historical fiction. With vivid descriptions of court intrigue, it paints King David biography in a way that is both classic and timely.

★★★★★ ”This captivating and commendable work had me immersed from the beginning… The author shows exceptional ability when it comes to storytelling.“

    A Peek at Bathsheba: The David Chronicles, Book 2, is a literary gem. In the audiobook version, Ms. Poznansky has paired her luscious telling of the life of David with a narrator most worthy. Mr. Justin Harmer’s voice is liquid gold, with intonations so deft and moving that it’s hard to imagine anyone else telling this story.

    The story of David continues from Book 1, Rise to Power, through the third of the series, Edge of Revolt, just released. I plan to listen to the last book and hope Mr. Harmer will narrate this one as well.

    David, the powerful narcissist who can wipe out entire villages with not a shred of guilt, yet who adores his (many) wives and children with most surprising tenderness, grows from youth to old man within the series. We experience frequent flashbacks or references to his youth in this story as well, which ties his life together very nicely.

    I love Ms. Poznansky’s evocative writing, and here is just one of many poetic scenes that moved me, describing David watching Bathsheba when she first came to his chambers:

    “I sit at the edge of the bed, utterly fascinated by her beauty. Her
    lashes are long, they flutter over her cheeks, and her hair waves
    around her face with the rhythm of her steps. It glows like copper
    under the flaming sconces, but when she crosses in front of the
    window it turns blue against the moonshine.”

    You can call me a romantic, but this scene came alive for me with these and all of the well-chosen words in this novel.

    Thank you, Ms. Poznansky, for allowing us to continue to believe that America still has great writers who carefully construct each sentence, and who can tell a great story at the same time.

    – Highly recommended by Aaron Lazar
