What price must she pay for true love?

Her days marked by turmoil and faded dreams, Abigail has resigned herself to a life with a man she does not love. When her husband Nabal’s foolish pride angers David and his men, she boldly steps forward to save her family—and David, the would-be king, takes notice.
Circumstances offer Abigail a second chance at happiness with the handsome David, and she takes a leap of faith to join his wandering tribe. But her struggles are far from over. How can she share his love with the other women he insists on marrying?

“great visual image of biblical times and women’s lives”

Smith’s writing has reached a higher level with book one of the Wives of King David series. It will make a phenomenal collection for any church or home library. This is an excellent women’s book club selection and gives a great visual image of biblical times and women’s lives.
