Excerpt from The Royal Outlaw: A Novel
N a certain evening, in an upper room of a house in Gibeah, the royal city of the Kingdom of Israel, sat the Princess Michal, a daughter of King Saul and the wife of David ben Jesse of Bethlehem. With the young matron were her several handmaid ens. All were at needlework. The room was primi tive in the simplicity of its furnishing, howbeit the boudoir of a princess, for Israel was frugal: to live apart from one's cattle was luxury enough. There was a couch, a table, and Michal occupied a veritable chair, as any princess justly might, but her maids, bare footed, bare-armed, sat about her on the ﬂoor.
