{Book Review} Michal’s Window




Michal’s Window



Rachelle Ayala

“Rachelle Ayala is the author of dramatic fiction crossing genres and boundaries featuring strong but flawed characters. She writes emotionally challenging stories and is not afraid of controversial topics. However, she is an optimist and laces her stories with romance and hope.

Rachelle Ayala has written three novels. Michal’s Window is a powerful and emotional journey as lived through the eyes of Princess Michal, King David’s first wife. Broken Build is a story of redemption and healing where a man learns to love and trust the woman who destroyed his life. Finally, Hidden Under Her Heart is concerned with forgiveness in the face of judgment over abortion.”.

{Content Advisory}

Sexual situations; blood and violence


This is a wonderful account and portrayal of a Biblical romance between David (who later becomes King David) and Michal, the daughter of King Saul. This story instantly transports you back to Biblical times and allows you to experience some well known events from a whole new and much more detailed perspective. While there is no way of knowing if many of the events in this story are historically accurate, this gives the reader a glimpse of one author’s imagination and awesome ability to fill in the blanks that are left by the Bible. Michal is depicted as a very strong woman with the courage to stand up against the suppression with which the women of Israel were faced. She was willing to fight for what she loved and what she believed in.  Michal is also determined to be with the man she loves at any and all costs.  She encounters many obstacles in her quest to be with David and she is heartbroken when she comes to realize how the power of becoming King has changed the gentle harpist she had fallen in love with.

I would highly recommend this book for anyone that enjoys reading, but especially those that enjoy reading romance, historical romance, and Christian fiction books.  This book is an awesome mix of a historical time and events, but written in the clear language of today that prevents the reader from being distracted by the complicated language of Biblical times.  I would not recommend this book for minors, however, simply because of the sexual content.  While this sexual content is not overly graphic and I do not feel it should be offensive to any adult, I do not think it is appropriate for minors.

I think Rachelle Ayala has done an awesome job with Michal’s Window and I fully plan to read more of her books in the very near future!
