This review is from: A Peek at Bathsheba (The David Chronicles Book 2) (Kindle Edition)
A Peek at Bathsheba is a great book that truly surprised me, I didn't know what to expect. It brings to life that particular Bible book of King David. The king goes through his turmoil, hopes, mistakes, passion, and love for Bathsheba. There are wars, blood shed, betrayals, and peace plans. He makes it clear what his role is as king. He has humor. I laughed at the remark made comparing a woman to a fruit. The book is written in a contemporary style, making us aware of the similar questions, mistakes, we share in our modern world. I love the author's poetic style!
James DiBenedetto, the author of the Dream Series, is my 'partner in crime' in the creation of the boxed set titled At Odds with Destiny. He asked me about the ideas that propelled me to bring together the ten authors who are taking part in this exciting project. So I opened with, "Lately, despite being an intensely private person, I have found myself increasingly engaged with readers and listeners. Why? because of my characters. Having sprung from my mind onto the page, they might die there, pressed between the front and back covers–unless I make it possible for them to spring from the page to your mind..."

This review is from: Rise to Power (The David Chronicles Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
I have read 'Rise to Power' after Uvi's 'Apart from Love' because I've liked her style and her psychological insight. In 'Rise to Power', Uvi has entered the head and mind of a man, of King David, whom we all have read about or heard of in Sunday School. But, how different this man shows in her story. Uvi, first of all, is using quite contemporary language which makes Kind David of the Bible a human being, someone we can visionalize and feel, almost touch. Maybe understand. She is giving a human face to King David which we are able to recognise. I knew King David only for the killing of Goliath but, reading Uvi's excellent psychological assessment of his character, I feel as if history becomes alive, the man becomes alive. Uvi is an excellent writer, using her artistic skills of painting to create a picture of historical biblical characters to evolve in front of our inner eye. She truly is an artist of words. King David, a remarkable character of his time, becoming one representative of the Israel we all know. The quest for power, the passion, deceiving and manipulating, but still, the human face of times gone by and our time. Historical fiction at it's finest Uvi Poznanski is a remarkable writer. She is dancing with words.
