Jill's lastest release Abigail follows
the bestselling *Michal* and continues Jill Eileen Smith’s rich story of David’s wives.Abigail is the third wife of King David and her journey
is one of heartache and shattered dreams, but in the end she grows
stronger for what she has endured and her relationship to David takes
an interesting turn.
What price must she pay for true love?
Her days marked by turmoil and faded dreams, Abigail has resigned
herself to a life with a man she does not love. When her husband Nabal’s
foolish pride angers David and his men, she boldly steps forward to
save her family—and David, the would-be king, takes notice.
Circumstances offer Abigail a second chance at happiness with the
handsome David, and she takes a leap of faith to join his wandering
tribe. But her struggles are far from over. How can she share his love
with the other women he insists on marrying?
“With skill honed by years of historical research, made sharper still
with a gifted passion for storytelling, Jill Eileen Smith crafts the
story of Abigail in a way that takes us deep into the heart of King
David and into the heart of a woman determined to follow God’s will, no
matter the cost to her—or to the man she loves.”—Tamera Alexander, bestselling author of From a Distance and The Inheritance
“Smith’s writing swept me back to ancient days and brought Abigail and David’s love story vividly to life.”—Deborah Raney, award-winning author of Almost Forever and the Clayburn Novels
“A rich tapestry of an era filled with love and longing that rings true across the centuries.”
—Siri Mitchell, author of Love’s Pursuit
