The Heart Of A King: The Loves Of Solomon

Jill Eileen Smith is the bestselling and award-winning author of the biblical fiction series The Wives of King David, Wives of the Patriarchs, and Daughters of the Promised Land, as well as the nonfiction book When Life Doesn't Match Your Dreams.  Her research into the lives of biblical women has taken her from the Bible to Israel, and she particularly enjoys learning how women lived in Old Testament times.  Jill lives with her family in southeast Michigan.  Learn more at her website

Get swept away by a story of love, loss, and longing.

King Solomon could - and did - have anything he wanted, including many women from many lands.  But for all of his wealth and wisdom, did he or the women he loved ever find what they were searching for?

In this engrossing novel, find yourself whisked away to ancient Israel, where you'll meet four remarkable women:  Naamah the desert princess, Abishag the shepherdess, Siti the daughter of a pharaoh, and Nicaula the queen of Sheba.  As you experience the world of Solomon through his eyes and theirs, you'll grapple with whether this king's storied wisdom ultimately benefited him and those he loved...or betrayed them.

My Thoughts:
Smith first introduces readers to four of King Solomon's loves in a series of Ebook shorts...The Desert Princess (Naamah's story), The Shepherdess (Abishag's story), Daughter of the Nile (Siti's story), and The Queen of Sheba (Nicaula's story).  In her recent release, The Heart of a King, Smith brings these four loves of King Solomon together with the additional insight of what might have been going through Solomon's heart and mind.  The Heart of a King can be read as a stand-alone book, but reading the Ebook shorts listed above first will greatly enrich your reading experience. 
Smith's telling of King Solomon's story stays close to the biblical narrative and the artistic liberty she takes to fill in the gaps of what Scripture doesn't tell us is rich with historical and biblical research and preserves the integrity of God's Word.  Written in the third person, The Heart of a King is an enjoyable read that holds you captive with great dialogue and vivid descriptions.  Smith masterfully transports readers to another time and place and gives them a look into the life of the wisest but possibly most tormented man to ever live.
