Bathsheba: Reluctant Beauty

Bathsheba: Reluctant Beauty - Angela Elwell Hunt This book definitely won me over for the portrayal of David & Bathsheba. When you read the account of what happened in the bible, many people focus on what David did to Uriah. I always was upset by what he did to Bathsheba. I absolutely love that the story was told with the view point of her being violated by a King who thought too highly of his flesh desires.

I gave 4 stars because it was a slow building story line that I thought could have had more speed & insight. I wanted Bathsheba to have more emotion for her dying baby & just a bit more depth to her character. Nathan had a lot of story and it didn't seem to be so for Bathsheba.
