Carlene Havel

Author Carlene Havelabout this book: I'm fascinated by those ancient women who managed to leave a mark on history. They were seldom taught to read, their value was measured by their sons, and they exercised so little control over their lives. A girl's marriage would be arranged by her parents—to the spouse of her father's choosing. A king could secure a military alliance in exchange for his daughter.

How would it feel to be truly "given" in marriage? To live in an environment where a malevolent king had absolute authority? To be one wife among many? Those thoughts, coupled with a wish to write about a heroine from the Bible, eventually resulted in selecting Princess Michal, King Saul's youngest daughter, to take the starring role in a novel.

After studying the facts of Michal's life from Kings and Chronicles, co-author Sharon Faucheux and I created a character both of us fell in love with. We hope you will, too.
