A man's weapons are the sword and spear; a woman's are her wits. . . . All the world knows of King David, how he slew the giant Goliath, united Israel and Judah, and brought the Ark of the Covenant to Jerusalem. But none knew him so well -- knew him as a man -- as his queen, Michal. She saw the truth behind the songs, behind the beauty, behind the praise of men and the favor of God. Daughter of a king, beautiful, proud, Michal was the prize David would risk his kingdom to win. She could ask anything and have it granted; anything but her own happiness. . . .
