Bathsheba by Jill Eileen Smith

Coming March 2011...


Bathsheba is a woman who longs for love. With her devout husband away fighting the king’s wars for many months at a time, discontent and loneliness dog her steps–and make it frighteningly easy to succumb to King David’s charm and attention. Though she immediately regrets her involvement with the powerful king, the pieces are set in motion that will destroy everything she holds dear. Can she find forgiveness at the feet of the Almighty? Or has her sin separated her from God–and David–forever?


This final installment in the Wives of King David series could be the best one of all because the plot is already set up to be original. As long as Jill continues her knack for developing good characters and creating interesting outside elements, Bathsheba could be a hit.


  1. Hi Steve,

    Thank you for your comments! I hope BATHSHEBA is a book you will enjoy. I appreciate the compliment about my character development. Thanks for the encouragement! I didn't quite understand what you meant by the phrase "refrains from fixing outside elements." Could you please explain what you meant by that?

  2. Jill,
    I spoke with the author of that post and he decided he wanted to change the wording there a little bit as you can see, now the word fixing has been removed. What he meant by outside elements is subplots and storylines that are extra-biblical.
