Anointed (314 pages, paperback)

David's just an ordinary shepherd boy whose world has just been turned upside down ... he's just been anointed king. Wierd. But even wierder because there's already a king of Israel. So begins a struggle of epic proportions. Two anointed kings, one throne. Both chosen by God. Only it's not quite as simple as who is the strongest, who has the greatest army or who's the most popular... Written by Hannah Hayles


Another fascinating book by Hannah Hayles. This tells the story of the goings on within King David's household from the time when he becomes King in Hebron to the coronation of Solomon. It is told from the point of view of Chileab the son of Abigail, who became David's stepson. Although he was the eldest in the family, he would never be king.
