One stifling summer evening in Jerusalem, lovely young Bathsheba goes to the roof of her house to bathe. When a noise startles her, she covers herself quickly with a towel and looks behind her to the pavilion of the royal palace across the narrow alleyway.
All is in darkness.
But, unseen on the palace roof, a man has been watching - King David himself. Impulsively he dispatches a message that will ultimately spawn adultery, murder, suicide, war, and the division of the kingdom of Israel.
David and Bathsheba is the story of a woman whose beauty overwhelmed a king and brought disgrace to a nation. It is the story of battles fought on the sun-baked plains of ancient Israel . . . of palace intrigue and village romance . . . of lust and devotion, treachery and responsibility.
From out of the past come figures as contemporary as tomorrow's headlines: men and women locked in the eternal struggle for power, governed by appetites they wrestle to control, and all told by a master storyteller.
