Rebecca Hardy –
I do not waste time and money on fiction. I’m more of a ‘Bah Humbug’ sort of person. But I know Brother Jonathan Cope and thought about my great-grandchildren so bought a copy of Hez to see if it was suitable as a gift. Dipped into its opening pages to see how ‘readable’ it was. Suddenly found myself looking at Chapter Seven! Hastily put it down to get on with the important side of ‘living’.
Tea time. Shall I watch ‘Coronavirus Update’ or read another couple of pages? Found I was now at Chapter Twelve! Now I remember why I don’t read fiction – it’s addictive. Put Hez out of sight under a cushion.
In short, for anyone just familiar enough with the life of David to remember names like Joab, David’s ‘Mighty Men’, Uriah the Hittite, Nabal, Jonathan, all these characters suddenly come to life almost jumping off the page. This is all the life of David, and sensitively told. Nowhere did I feel the story went beyond the facts, but many places where the background enhanced and made memorable the narrative.
Great-grandchildren look out. Hez is coming in a parcel to a room near you. Oh yes, don’t forget grandparents and great-grandparents too. At 89 I found it a very good read, even if it is fiction. ‘Bah’!
