Reviews: "I gave Michal's Window five stars because I really like this author's style. Her prose is smooth, the pacing is fast when it needs to be and slow when appropriate. While the book has a few hitches - don't they all? - nothing severe enough to jolt me out of the story. Much of the story was unfamiliar to me. I'm not an avid reader of the Bible and had only vague memories of David's life. I enjoyed reading Michal's story, as I don't recall ever hearing about her before. Ayala does a good job with scenery and drawing well-rounded characters, also. I will definitely read more from this author!"
