Bathsheba Review

24856105

First, I have to thank Bethany House Publishing for sending this book to me in exchange for an honest review.

Review: I really enjoyed this book. I had always heard the story of David and Bathsheba growing up, in church. I never really understood the story and why David was condemned as a sinner until I read Angela's account of what likely happened. 

The story was well paced out and I enjoyed the shortness of the chapters. It made it easier to read and frankly, better in many ways. I felt so bad for Bathsheba AND David. They both went through so much heartbreak in this story. The losing of children, spouses, and other family members was heartbreaking. Still, it made for compelling storytelling. 

One of the only things I had an issue with was the ending. It seemed to fall just a bit flat for me. I was hoping for a boomer of an ending because the story was so well written. That is the only reason I am writing this as a 4 and not 5 star review.

I will say I recommend this book and this author. I really did enjoy it. Thank you to Bethany House for allowing me to read and review this book.
