King David brought to vivid life

Oh what a lovely review of A Peek at Bathsheba!

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: A Peek at Bathsheba (The David Chronicles Book 2) (Kindle Edition)
Uvi Paznanski has brought the story of King David to life, giving us a very human David with human feelings and struggles, which I might point out, in response to a previous review, have not changed much over the millenia. Her work is informed by her deep knowledge of the biblical story and commentary, as well as art history and she does a masterful job of weaving the psalms into the story. She gives David a contemporary voice, which I like. After all, when people speak to each other during any time period they sound contemporary to themselves and each other. At the same time, the richness of her descriptive language, to me, evokes a sense of majesty that seems, well, biblical.
