The Heart of a King
King Solomon was wealthy and wise beyond measure. He could--and did--have anything he wanted, including many women from many lands. But for all his wisdom, did he or the women in his life ever find what they searched for all of their lives?
In this engrossing novel, you'll find yourself whisked away to ancient Israel, where you'll meet Solomon and four of the women he loved: Naamah the desert princess, Abishag the shepherdess, Siti the daughter of a pharaoh, and Nicaula the queen of Sheba. As you experience the world of Solomon through his eyes and the eyes of these women, you'll ask yourself the ultimate question: Did Solomon's wisdom ultimately benefit him and those he loved . . . or did it betray them?
My thoughts: To be quite honest, I wasn't sure about this book when it first arrived. I wasn't sure if I would like a book about a man and his many loves/marriages, even though he is from the Bible. That said, I enjoyed it immensely! Jill does a wonderful job of bringing the reign of Solomon to life through the story of him and four of his wives. I thought she did a wonderful job of writing tastefully about his life, drawing from the scriptures and history. This is an interesting read!
I received this book from Revell. This is my honest review and is in no way influenced by receiving a complimentary copy.
