Michal's Window (A Novel: King David's First Wife), by Rachelle Ayala

"I climbed through Michal's Window with skeptical anticipation. How compatible would romance be with something as controversial as biblical truth? And, how would Rachelle Ayala manage to draw forth plot twists and intrigue from a tale as well worn as time itself? But as I began turning the pages, Ayala's brilliant prose breathed life into one of history's most misunderstood protagonists, captivating my attention for the duration." -- El Velo se ha Caido - Mario Gomez

"There hasn't been a single night I didn't go to bed without thinking of Michal, and her plights. When she craved for David, I hoped he'd come back to her. When she saw how power and time changed David, I felt sad for her. It was only Michal who was on my mind. It makes you sink into the world of the characters and makes you think over and over again, replaying each event in your head. I sympathized and empathized with Michal." -- Backstabber Book Blog - Sudeshna Thakurta

"A very long, interesting, colorful, and worthy read. This book is far from the ordinary - it's an imaginative journey with Michal and David. This book made me smile, blush, cry, and more." -- My Book and My Coffee
