Book Review: Solomon's Song

February 27, 2007

This is the second book in the trilogy by Roberta Kells Dorr, which starts with Bathsheba and ends with the Queen of Sheba. Since reading Bathsheba a couple of weeks ago, my mom discovered that the author actually lives here in Maryville. Then our friend Tammy tells us that Dorr was a friend of her mother's and that she used to go play at her house as a child. Small world! Anyway, I enjoyed this fictional account of Solomon and Shulamit (Abishag) tremendously. I love to read the Biblical account and then see how Dorr takes those few lines and creates this living history. I'm looking forward to starting Queen of Sheba tonight.
