Abigail by Jill Eileen Smith is the second book in the Wives of King David series.
From the publisher:
Her days marked by turmoil and faded dreams, Abigail has resigned herself to a life with a man she does not love. But when circumstances offer her a second chance at happiness with the handsome David, she takes a leap of faith to join his wandering tribe. Still, her struggles are far from over. How can she share his love with the other women he insists on marrying?
Jill Eileen Smith weaves a heart-wrenching tail about Abigail, a young woman married off to a cruel man to settle her father’s debt. Circumstances lead to her becoming acquainted with the future King David and eventually her marriage to him as his second wife. Being the wife of a king has it’s own challenges and one of several wives even more so.
This is a beautiful and engaging story that takes Scripture and brings it alive in a way that you will not forget it. This is the first of this series that I have read and I plan to read it’s precusor – Michal. This book introduced me to a whole genre I had never heard of and I plan to explore it further.
I recommend this book to ladies who likes historical fiction and historical romances. This is a fabulous book!
