Bathsheba: Reluctant Beauty (A Dangerous Beauty Novel)



About the Book
A Vivid and Moving Portrait of a Reluctant Queen

After sending his army to besiege another king's capital, King David forces himself on Bathsheba, a loyal soldier's wife. When her resulting pregnancy forces the king to murder her husband and add her to his harem, Bathsheba struggles to protect her son while dealing with the effects of a dark prophecy and deadly curse on the king's household.
Combining historical facts with detailed fiction, Angela Hunt paints a realistic portrait of the beautiful woman who struggled to survive the dire results of divine judgment on a king with a divided heart.



My Review
I have always enjoyed Novels that have a Biblical truth to them in some way. Bathsheba
has been written as a very beautiful story... It was like reading a journal of two people...I like the way it started and ended... the cover was perfect...she was a beautiful woman. It was interesting to read Nathans words. At first I did not like how the chapters were so short but then I realized it was not that kind of book.....I could see and smell the people and surroundings because it was written well...After I read it I shared it with my sister and she really enjoyed how it was written too,,,good book

I would recommend this book to those who enjoy novels with a biblical story line!




About Author
Christy-Award winner Angela Hunt writes for readers who expect the unexpected in novels. With over four million copies of her books sold worldwide, she is the best-selling author of more than 125 works ranging from picture books (The Tale of Three Trees) to non-fiction books, to novels.
Now that her two children are grown, Angie and her husband live in Florida with Very Big Dogs (a direct result of watching Turner and Hoochand Sandlot too many times). This affinity for mastiffs has not been without its rewards–one of their dogs was featured on Live with Regis and Kelly as the second-largest canine in America. Their dog received this dubious honor after an all-expenses-paid trip to Manhattan for the dog and the Hunts, complete with VIP air travel and a stretch limo in which they toured New York City.
Afterward, the dog gave out pawtographs at the airport.
Angela admits to being fascinated by animals, medicine, psychology, unexplained phenomena, and “just about everything” except sports. Books, she says, have always shaped her life— in the fifth grade she learned how to flirt from reading Gone with the Wind.
Her books have won the coveted Christy Award, several Angel Awards from Excellence in Media, and the Gold and Silver Medallions from Foreword Magazine’s Book of the Year Award. In 2007, her novel The Note was featured as a Christmas movie on the Hallmark channel. Romantic Times Book Club presented her with a Lifetime Achievement Award in 2006.
Also in 2006, Angela completed her Master of Biblical Studies in Theology degree. She completed her doctorate in biblical studies in 2008 and her Th.D. in 2015. When she’s not home reading or writing, Angie often travels to teach writing workshops at schools and writers’ conferences. And to talk about her dogs, of course.  She is also an avid photographer, using her photos to help find homes for her local SPCA’s shelter animals.

Miracle in a Dry Season
By
Sarah Loudin Thomas
About
In a Drought, It's the Darkest Cloud
That Brings 
Hope

It's 1954 and Perla Long's arrival in the sleepy town of Wise, West Virginia, was supposed to go unnoticed. She just wants a quiet, safe place for her and her daughter, Sadie, where the mistakes of her past can stay hidden. But then drought comes to Wise, and Perla is pulled into the turmoil of a town desperately in need of a miracle.
Casewell Phillips has resigned himself to life as a bachelor...until he meets Perla. She's everything he's sought in a woman, but he can't get past the sense that she's hiding something. As the drought worsens, Perla's unique gift divides the town in two, bringing both gratitude and condemnation, and placing the pair in the middle of a storm of anger and forgiveness, fear and faith.
MY REVIEW
I really enjoyed Miracle in a Dry Season!!!!!!! It is filled with drama, romance, and some light humor. I found myself feeling sorry for Perla at times for the treatment she receives from the townspeople. My heart just ached for her.
Living in the Blue Ridge Mountains, I think the author did an amazing job capturing the 1950s in Appalachia. The author definitely knew how to speak the language here. I kept thinking the characters and town as my family because I felt so close to them.
This book is an awesome debut and I look forward to reading more of the series, as well as, more by the author. I think she has great talent for telling beautiful stories of faith and love.

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading!!!
May the Lord bless you and keep you all the days of your life, Sarah, in Jesus Name Amen!
