Ибо так возлюбил Бог мир, что отдал Сына Своего Единородного, дабы всякий верующий в Него, не погиб, но имел хизнь вечную.

Review: The Heart of a King by Jill Eileen Smith

Goodreads blurb-- "Four women captured King Solomon's heart in different ways, and he indulges his desires despite warnings. For all his wisdom, did Solomon or the women he loved ever find what they were searching for?"

I'm giving this book 4 stars. I was a little hesitant to grab this one, considering... well, it is Solomon. And yes, it was a little much at times, but let's be honest, Solomon was a bit much at times. That being said, this book kept my attention while I was anxiously awaiting the arrival of family for a much wanted visit, and I can't remember the last book that was able to distract me from my impatience. The book starts out sweet...and ends sad. Jill definitely has a way of bringing the Bible to life through her vivid characters. Her books are always sooooo researched. Of course, there is a little guesswork, but you can tell it's educated guesses. If you are looking for a story that will take you back to Bible times then Jill is an excellent option. I can't wait to share this book with my cousin, since she's my Jill buddy! This book is longer than the others, but it's definitely not painful to read more! ;) The only thing I wish were a little different is that I wish that as we moved on through the book that we still got to hear from the characters we got to know at the beginning of the book.

I received this book in exchange for my honest review.
