Review- The Secret Chord: A Novel   by Geraldine Brooks

The ever versatile author Geraldine Brooks writes another wonderful story. This huge story is compelling and tangled at the same time. David becomes the hero who is his own worst enemy, but always the charismatic hero. The story is told by Nathan, the lost prophet who is almost Merlin to David’s Arthur. But here David is brought down and saved by David’s actions. No serpent, no Eve, no Gunivere. Just David.
