A humble young man steps into their world, bringing with him questions of surrender, loyalty, and devotion.
Summoned from his father's farm and anointed as the future king of Israel, young David knows the life awaiting him will far exceed his fondest dreams. But he never anticipates his secret promise will threaten the agendas of some and capture the hearts of others. Soon caught in the maze of a king who is plotting his death, a prince with mysterious and unselfish devotion, and a princess who desires his heart, he flees from the palace he thought was his destiny.
Now a fugitive, outcasts become his only friends. A deeply complex and dangerous man becomes his loyal ally. He is the only hope for a shattered young priest, and the only desire of a beautiful and privileged woman with a desolate heart.
After winning the favor of many and being crowned their king, still some hate him. Others deceive him. Even his own son rebels against him, banishing him into exile.
Will the king forgive them and return to his promised throne? Will those who embrace him remain faithful, or will the sacrifices be too great? Only in the depths of their hearts will they find the answers.
