In the centuries since the Israelites left the land of Egypt, their kingdom has been afflicted by war and brutal enemies at every corner.  King Saul's poor leadership brought the kingdom to the brink of destruction, but David, the young hero who slew Goliath, has risen up as the new and powerful King.

In a small town in the kingdom is a young woman named Bathsheba. Granddaughter of Ahithophel, an esteemed warrior and adviser to the King, Bathsheba often quizzed her grandfather about whether the stories and songs the people sang of David were true.  At the age of 12, an angel came to her in a dream promising her that one day she would be a princess and called beautiful among women.

The dream proves to be too lofty, however, when Ahithophel announces his intention to give her as a bride to Uriah the Hittite.  Bathsheba finds her hopes and dreams crushed, unable to do anything about the fate before her.

That is until one summer night when King David catches a glimpse of the maiden bathing on her rooftop. Will her future change forever?

This is the story of Bathsheba, the woman David loved but could not have as never told before.
