How can she share his love with the other women he insists on marrying?

Naration

Good Story. Well written,but the narration spoiled it for me. Her inflections did not mirror the action or the dialogue.

Really enjoyable story

Very enjoyable biblical story to fill in what the Bible does not tell us about the lives and times of being a wife of King David.

Wonderful Story

I love this story. I purchased this book years and years ago and compared to other authors who wrote about Abigail and King David this one beats them all. So much more detail and includes the full story from the very beginning through the time David was still in hiding from King Saul and the struggles they faced during that time as well as David's ascension to King. And Abigail's struggle with his multiple wives. Well done Jill Eileen Smith and thank you for finally getting this book out on Audio!!!

P.S. could have gotten a better narrator. She wasn't bad but she wasn't good either.
