The Heart of a King by Jill Eileen Smith



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?


Most of us knows the story of King Solomon and the wisdom God gave him.
I will never understand how he fell so far way from God. 
I like how this author delved deeper into the life of this king. She portrays his thoughts, feelings, and wants so very well!! 
I felt like he was in the room with me and looking over my shoulder reading along with me! Kind of creep y huh? Not really. 
I think it would be fascinating to meet Solomon. 
The only thing I wouldn't like is the many wives he had. I wouldn't want to share, so I knew how Naamah felt even though I didn't care much for her at first.
I never understood Siti nor did I like her.
Abishag was my favorite!! I think I would want her to be my friend. I feel like could tell her anything and she would understand. I loved her personality. 
I have read her story before but I still like hearing about her.
I also loved the way this author showed Solomon and how he sinned.
She showed his human side very well.
I'm pretty sure God was against polygamy. In his eyes there is only one marriage. 
I recommend this book very strongly!!
Jill is an amazing writer!!
I received this book with no compensations were received. All opinions are my own!!
