A Powerful and Beautiful Telling of an Epic Biblical Tale

James DiBenedetto is the author of Dream Student (and other books in this series.) I am honored that he posted this review for my novel, 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 Poznansky continues her look at the life and times of King David, and this second volume is every bit as good as the first one ("Rise to Power").

It's a story we all know, the tale of David and Bathsheba, but it's told through a modern lens, and using language more familiar to today's world than that of the Bible. It's powerful both because it makes it easier for us to view these characters as fresh and blood humans, rather than simply as historical figures; and also because it reminds us that the same passions and failings are with us now, as existed thousands of years ago (this is a theme the author explores in many of her books).

As with her previous books, the author's use of language is simply beautiful. Her training and career as a visual artist is evident both in her descriptions and in the care she takes with every word.

Highly, highly recommended!
