The Secret Chord by Geraldine Brooks

Well known and award winning author, Geraldine Brooks, peels away the myth to bring King David to life in Second Iron Age Israel.The Secret Chord provides new context for some of the best-known episodes of David’s (and Goliath) life while also focusing on others, even more remarkable and emotionally intense, that have been neglected. We see David through the eyes of those who love him or fear him—from the prophet Natan, voice of his conscience, to his wives Mikal, Avigail, and Batsheva, and finally to Solomon, the late-born son who redeems his Lear-like old age. Brooks has an ability to hear and transform characters from history, and this book doesn’t disappoint.
