I had an opportunity to review a book by Rachelle Ayala titled Michal’s Window. Now I will be the first one to admit that I am not the go-to person for biblical characters and their stories. But I couldn’t resist reading this book with a creative elaboration on certain characters. I wasn’t sure how I would like it since I am not very into biblical stories or movies, but when the first line on Amazon in the book description is “Not your Grandma’s bible story…” I was definitely interested.
A creative blend of fact and fiction, this is one strong love story that sends you back to Israel in 1000BC. It seems like a living fantasy, with extremely descriptive wording and such well established characters that you can’t help but to love them or hate them. Follow the journey of Michal as she works to establish herself into the life of King David, her rightful husband as she overcomes every obstacle in her way.
Not just a joyous book, it shows trials and tribulations that are hard to overcome. Jealousy, anger, and heart ache are well established in these pages leading to the depth of the story. While the book shows a strong sense of God, that is not the only thing in it. So please don’t dismiss it as being uninteresting because of the biblical part. This is an amazingly beautiful story where you will laugh, love and cry with the characters.
