An intimate peek into history

Just discovered this review for the audiobook edition of my historical fiction novel, A Peek at Bathsheba:

    "An intimate peek into history"
    I find it fascinating to consider what the back story might have been of people whose lives are a well-known part of history. Ms. Poznansky does an excellent job of coloring in the intimate details of the lives of King David and his wife Bathsheba, which fits comfortably into the documented facts. While I believe this "man after God's own heart" experienced a more loving, trusting, personal relationship with Jehovah than is depicted here, I found the depicted perceptions and motives that the author intertwined into fostering the political climate and its resulting effects upon individuals and kingdoms alike, to be very plausible and added so much more realism and humanness to an otherwise dry historic account. Justin Harmer's luxurious accent was easy to listen to, with excellent timing and expressiveness. Poznansky is obviously one highly gifted writer, and I look forward to experiencing more of her exceptional work.
