This, her first novel, The Golden ...
This, her first novel, The Golden One is a story of trust, passion, devotion, omens, potions, midwifery, necromancy, betrayal and a love that has no limits. It is a blending of the Goddess teachings with the worldly passions of a young priestess as she is torn between her love for the powerful, charismatic King David and the sacred vows of Ishtar. But even the Goddess's gifts cannot save her from the wrath of her enemies. This story will draw you in to another time and place with exquisite visions set against ancient historical scenes. The passion and intrigue are evident in every chapter.
The warmth of this tale is a delight seldom found .
With the depth of research into the time of the story; this will be a superb read for many; plus an introduction to a lady author of much talent.
The delightful "word paintings" will bring much of the flavour into crystalline clarity to be savoured through being read and re-read.
The finesse of this work is surely the hallmark of Ms. Bowman's talent.
This review of The Golden One is a great joy for this editor,
with highest commendation to the publisher.
