This is a work of biblical historical fiction and I bought it solely because the cover blurb said it was on the same level as The Red Tent one of my favorite books of recent years Unfortunately it s not anywhere near as good as that bookreturnreturnThe story is a first person account of Michal daughter of King Saul and first wife of David At heart it s a story about the power of men and how they abuse that power and how even repressed women can earn power in their own right This involves a lot of talking A lot Michal is entirely removed from ongoing wars and conflicts being secluded in the palace there isn t even much court intrigue except for one other wife who gets snippy on occasion It ends up being David or Bathsheba talking to Michal while she spins in the garden That s pretty much it The material is very interesting but there was no suspense or conflict Michal bides her time waiting to pwn King David the Jerk I pushed myself through the last half of the book just because I wanted to get it over with before I got too boredreturnreturnThat said I have the seuel to this found it at a thrift store months ago and I m still going to give it a shot Maybe part of the problem is that ueenmaker feels like a first novel Like the author has some great ideas but is still honing her craft Therefore I ll give her one chance and hope it s a better book Or maybe I m just masochistic The seuel is awesome much much better than ueenmaker
