WHAT IT’S ABOUT:
With more than two million copies of her novels sold, New York Times bestselling author Geraldine Brooks has achieved both popular and critical acclaim. Now, Brooks takes on one of literature’s richest and most enigmatic figures: a man who shimmers between history and legend. Peeling away the myth to bring David to life in Second Iron Age Israel in her new book, THE SECRET CHORD, Brooks traces the arc of his journey from obscurity to fame, from shepherd to soldier, from hero to traitor, from beloved king to murderous despot and into his remorseful and diminished dotage. Told through the eyes of those who love him or fear him, this book is a his beautifully written, unvarnished saga of faith, desire, family, ambition and power that transforms some of the most engaging characters of history and will enthrall Brooks' many fans.

“With the verve of an adroit storyteller...Brooks evokes times and place with keenly drawn detail...Ambitious and psychologically astute.”
--PUBLISHER'S WEEKLY
