This is an auction for QUEENMAKER: A NOVEL OF KING DAVID'S QUEEN by India Edghill.

"Everyone has heard of David, slayer of Goliath, King of Israel, Lion of Judah, and beloved of Yahweh; however, his queen, Michal, is not as well known. Only a handful of Scriptures in Samuel I and II mention her, but from those few references, India Edghill has created a memorable and powerful portrait. Daughter of King Saul, Michal marries David at 13 before he falls from Saul's favour. After David flees Saul's wrath into the desert, Michal remarries and for ten years lives away from the intrigue and politics of her father's court. Upon Saul's death in battle, Michal is returned to her estranged husband, and out of bitterness and resentment for being uprooted from her life, she is rumoured to undermine the Israelis' admiration and respect for David. As the story is told from Michal's point of view, David is portrayed as less than heroic: he is a vain, selfish, Machiavellian figure. However, this is but a minor caveat. With its excellent writing, dynamic characters, and galloping pace, Edghill's work is highly recommended."
- Library Journal (US)

""With her vivid attention to historical detail, Edghill keeps readers captivated despite the familiar events."
- People Magazine (US)

"Edghill's fresh take on David reveals a power-hungry man who cleverly used looks, intellect, and oratory skills to move up in the ranks of Saul's army and then become king. The test of wills that develops between Michal and David adds zest and intrigue to these fast-moving pages."
- Booklist (US)
