'The Secret Chord' provides new context for some of the best-known episodes of King David's life while also focusing on others, even more remarkable and emotionally intense, that have been neglected. We see David through the eyes of those who love him or fear him - from the prophet Natan, voice of his conscience, to his wives Mikal, Avigail and Batsheva, and finally to Solomon, the late-born son who redeems his Lear-like old age.

This historical fiction novel is based on biblical characters and events. It is not in my usual comfort zone and I found it a bit bloodthirsty as well as a lengthy read.
