Join Mary Fabyan Windeatt in this engaging retelling of a classical Biblical story. Told from a fresh and imaginative perspective, the reader will see King David's story in an entirely new viewpoint: what will happen to a boy who challenges a giant Goliath? How can the same man be a shepherd and a king, a warrior and a fugitive, a hero and a villain--all while being the ancestor of Our Lord?

Mary Fabyan Windeatt was known as "the storyteller of the saints." In the 1950's and 60's she wrote over twenty historical fiction novels on the saints, bringing to life these holy men and women for young readers across the world. By artistically rendering familiar stories, the Windeatt books help readers see that the saints are real people whom we can emulate.
