Synopsis according to Goodreads:
“In ancient Israel, where women are property, Princess Michal loves her father’s worst enemy, the future King David. She sacrifices everything to save his life, but will her heart survive war and separation?
Michal’s story comes to life in this powerful and emotional journey through love and heartache to self-realization. Her intense love for King David coupled with tragic circumstances causes her to do the unthinkable. Too strong for her time, Michal’s story resonates with women today.”
I wanted to like Michal’s Window. I mean, the synopsis sounds fantastic- a biblical story retold for the modern woman, filling in the blanks where the fable falls short? I’m always a fan of retellings! But I should have known, I really should have. This is genre fiction, and it let me down.
I received this book from Tomoson.com in exchange for my honest review.
I’m a coffee-fueled, hobby-addicted bibliophage who makes cruelty-free mineral eye shadows (inspired by novels). I’m usually in front of a screen (writing, reading, or gaming), but I’ve been known to emerge for geekery, good food, and dark chocolate.
