I previously reviewed Angela Hunt’s novel Esther: Royal Beauty, so I was looking forward to reading her newest book in the series, Bathsheba: Royal Beauty. I really enjoyed this historical fiction novel, since it showed a side of Bathsheba I don’t often see in books or films. Instead of being depicted as a seductress, or a lustful woman at least partially at fault for King David’s actions, Bathsheba is portrayed as a victim who manages to thrive despite her circumstances. Using 2 Samuel and 1 Kings as a base, Hunt has fleshed out an engaging novel focusing on Bathsheba, David, and Nathan, and it was interesting to see the Bible figures come alive in Hunt’s version of the story.
You can find Bathsheba: Reluctant Beauty here on Amazon.
