In award-winning writer Francine Rivers's five-book Lineage of Grace series about women in the family tree of Jesus Christ, perhaps the most compelling installment is Unspoken, the love story of David and Bathsheba. This Old Testament saga of adultery, power, and battles fought both on the field of combat and in the human heart touches on the cost of poor choices, the need for forgiveness, and finding ultimate fulfillment -- themes that are relevant today. Rivers writes poignantly of how Bathsheba falls in love with David as a little girl, and of her bitterness when she comes of age and is given in marriage to Uriah, one of David's mighty warriors. Love cannot be commanded, however, and it's not long before the sexual tension between David and Bathsheba reaches its logical conclusion, with disastrous results.

Book four of the series, this tale is Bathsheba's. Yes, that Bathsheba. As in David's affair that almost destroyed his kingdom. Her name is Unspoken because of her shame but she becomes the mother of David's son Solomon, who became king and ushered in a time of peace and prosperity. This is a story of redemption for Bathsheba who went from being an adulterer to being a godly woman who trained her sons to follow God.
