This stunning biblical tale centers on Princess Michal, the daughter of King Saul, as she first meets the shepherd boy/harpist named David, who is arrives at the kingdom to help mend her father who is tormented by evil spirits. The Princess falls in love with David and before long the two are wedded.

Situations occur that causes King Saul to order the death of his son-in-law. Fearing for David's life, Michal helps her husband escape the wrath of her father.

Michal is later reunited with the now King David, but he has changed from the man that she had known. David has several wives and other lovers, but Michal still loves him and is determined to win his heart at all costs.

I'm a fan of biblical historical fiction tales and Michal's Window focuses on King David's wife Michal. If you have read the Bible, you'll know it is not G-rated, and neither is this book which contains some graphic violence and several graphic love scenes. The author uses creative descriptions and dialogue to make the reader truly believe that they are back in biblical times. The heroine starts out at age fourteen and as her life unfolds she matures into a strong woman who knows what she wants. She is not perfect as she does sin, making her character more realistic. I haven't read much about Michal before, so I found the novel entertaining. Even if you’re not into Christian themed stories, there is plenty of action and romance to go around! I recommend the book to other romance readers.
