Author(s): India Edghill


A brilliantly told story of a strong woman in the tradition of Anita Diamant's bestselling novel, 'The Red Tent'. All the world knows the deeds of King David but only his first queen, Michal, knows the truth behind the praise, the self-absorbed ego hidden behind the words of peace and wisdom. 'The story of a powerful and complex woman who could have anything she desired except her own happiness.' -Good Reading 'Queen Michal...from passionate hothead to cool politician.' -Marie Claire 'With her vivid attention to historical detail, Edghill keeps readers captivated...in Queenmaker the women of the Bible have the last word.' -Who Weekly 'If you like historical fiction, this elegant story is a must.' -NW With an enticing and powerful voice, Michal tells of her life as the first, and often forgotten, queen of the great King David. Michal moves in consequence from a king's daughter to David's wife before he abandons her. After ten years, David re-enters her life, demanding she give up everything she has learnt to love to join him. No-one knows David's flaws so well as Michal; she sees the truth behind the songs of praise and the selfishness behind the beauty. With rich storytelling and wonderfully vivid characters, Queenmaker is the tale of a strong woman and a spellbinding tale of wisdom and folly. And it is Michal's presence on every page that incandescently illuminates and reinterprets an old story. (Preceeding text courtesy of www.allenandunwin.com)
