A-Z Wednesday

A-Z Wednesday is hosted by Vicki at Reading at the Beach. The rules are pretty simple.....

1. Visit Reading at the Beach to get this week's letter.
2. Find a book on your shelf that starts with this week's letter.
3. Post the title, picture, description and link of the book on your blog.
4. Go back to Reading at the Beach to post a comment with a link to your post.

This week's letter is M. I've decided to feature the following book--Michal by Jill Eileen Smith.

About the book:

As the daughter of King Saul, Michal lives a life of privilege--but one that is haunted by her father's unpredictable moods and by competition from her beautiful older sister. When Michal falls for young David, the harpist who plays to calm her father, she has no idea what romance, adventures, and heartache await her. As readers enter the colorful and unpredictable worlds of King Saul and King David, they will be swept up in this exciting and romantic story. Against the backdrop of opulent palace life, raging war, and desert escapes, Jill Eileen Smith takes her readers on an emotional roller-coaster ride as Michal deals with love, loss, and personal transformation as one of the wives of David. A sweeping tale of passion and drama, readers will love this amazing story.
I have wanted to read this book for sooooooo long, and it's just sitting there patiently with all the other books on my shelf waiting to be read. :o) I am a huge fan of Biblical fiction, and am so glad to see new authors in this genre. Oh, and it won't be long 'til the next book comes out in this series. Book 2, Abigail, will be releasing in February 2010.


  1. This sounds like a good read; thanks for the heads-up!

    Here's my M book :-)


  2. What an interesting Biblical character to write about. I wonder how the author ends the story, can it end happily? Here is my "M" book.

  3. This one is new to me!!

    Thanks for playing!


I love your comments!! They make me happier than cold sweet tea on a hot summer day! :o)
