Historical and political must read novel

Renee Giraldy is a prolific, avid reader, and she posts her reviews on her lovely blog. I feel so grateful to find what she wrote about my novel, A Peek at Bathsheba:

This review is from: A Peek at Bathsheba (The David Chronicles Book 2) (Kindle Edition)
Uvi Poznansky gets yet another five big stars from me. I really enjoyed this book more because I have just came off a few Rock Band type reads and I felt educated in reading this.

“A Peek at Bathsheba” by Uvi Poznansky is so different from other books I have read. Its a blending of history, non-fiction and fiction. I truly enjoyed the author's style. For the first time in a long time I didnt see grammar issues, run on sentences or typos.

David is a very complex and difficult character to learn about. Here the author takes much of his persona and creates a tale based on some classics. I dont want people to think this is a religious novel. It is much more of a creation based on the King we know as David. Apart from the David I am aware of I learned about some personal tragedy here too. It sort of slides along a thin line of what you think is actual history and what you think is actual fiction. David was a write, an amazing musician, a poet, and so much more.

What I loved was how we see him and his wives, which is a different concept to me. I liked him falling in love. I still find it hard to believe it was a cultural thing to have more than one spouse, but who knows maybe more people should!

IF you want another very well written novel that inspires thinking, then yes grab this one. I think people who like history based reads will just love it. If you like history with a political type undertone, then grab it.
