A calm and steady hand that plucks the strings of her tale with a lyrical precision

I am so thrilled to discover an eloquent new review, written by a Top 500 Amazon Reviewer! Here is what Dii wrote for of my novel, A Peek at Bathshaba:

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Work of Art from Uvi PoznanskyAugust 25, 2014
This review is from: A Peek at Bathsheba (The David Chronicles Book 2) (Kindle Edition)
Young David slew Goliath and became a hero, a legend, blessed by God to become a powerful and intelligent ruler, with a dream of uniting the many tribes. Time and the pressures of ruling with a firm, but wise hand have taken their toll as he ages and his priorities turn inward as he creates passion through poems and his words. A Peek at Bathsheba by Uvi Poznansky tells of an era in David’s life after he has established himself as king, with a household filled with many trophy wives, a sign of his importance and power. Still, when he sees the beautiful Bathsheba, he must have her and goes so far as to have her husband, loyal to both her and his King, murdered.

Haven’t many wondered of the story of David and Bathsheba, of her influence on him, his love for her and of the live they shared, sometimes passionate, sometimes painful? David is portrayed as having more passion for his surroundings, his poetry and his artistic side, caring less about the political machinations going on around him. Bathsheba appears strong, yet is an outcast among David’s other wives, which proves to bring heartbreak to the couple. Did Bathsheba weaken David or did she give him what he needed when he most needed it to be strong?

Uvi Poznansky has brought a piece of biblical history to life looking upon these characters as humans, with frailties and flaws, giving us a chance to feel we understand a little more of lives lived long ago. Without the needs for the speech of the era, Ms. Poznansky delivers a deeply thought-provoking tale written with the artistic grace that is her signature style. She writes with a calm and steady hand that plucks the strings of her tale with a lyrical precision that leaves the reader deeply entrenched in her words long after the last page.
