Full Product Description
Meanwhile, Abigail's family has joined David's wandering tribe as he and his people keep traveling to avoid the dangerous Saul. When Nabal suddenly dies, Abigail is free to move on with her life, and thanks to her brother, her new life includes a new husband--David. The dangers of tribal life on the run are serious, but there are other dangers in young Abigail's mind. How can David lead his people effectively when he goes against God? And how can Abigail share David's love with the other wives he insists on marrying?
Jill Eileen Smith, bestselling author of Michal, draws on Scripture, historical research, and her imagination as she fills in the blanks to unveil the story of Abigail and David in rich detail and drama. The result is a riveting page-turner that will keep readers looking forward to the next book in this trilogy.
"Drawing on Scripture and historical research, Smith crafts a tale that will attract readers who enjoy their inspirational fiction set in biblical times."

AbigailZoë Stevenson, via The Good Book Stall
This passionate story of one woman’s struggles kept me page turning from the outset. Filled with historical and biblical detail we follow Abigail, King David’s third wife, a God fearing woman from her loveless first marriage into the love and protection of King David’s arms. Life not being a fairytale, we watch Abigail as she comes to terms with not being David’s only wife, her apparent barrenness and other tragedies life throws at her. Her story is a rollercoaster of emotions and Jill Smith tells it so well you can’t help identifying with Abigail and long for God to make things right. For those who are a fan of fiction this is a must. Brilliantly written and now I need to go back and read Michal.
