King Solomon was wealthy and wise beyond measure. He could–and did–have anything he wanted, including many women from many lands. But for all his wisdom, did he or the women in his life ever find what they searched for all of their lives?

In this engrossing novel, you’ll find yourself whisked away to ancient Israel, where you’ll meet Solomon and four of the women he loved: 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 the eyes of these women, you’ll ask yourself the ultimate question: Did Solomon’s wisdom ultimately benefit him and those he loved . . . or did it betray them?

My thoughts:

I always in enjoy Jill’s books. This one was no exception. However, I found I actually liked the women in the book a bit more then Solomon. I felt like I could connect better with his wives and their desire to be loved by him, then Solomon who was constantly striving.

Reading this did make me want to go back and read the parts of the Bible this story came from.

Overall, a very engaging story that I enjoyed.
