The Song of David – Review

I have a hard time writing reviews for Amy Harmon’s books. Not because I don’t love them, quite the contrary actually. I love everything she writes greatly, and I find myself struggling to find words I haven’t already said about all of her books.

I read the first book in this series, The Law of Moses, last year but had yet to find the time to pick up The Song of David. Finally, when I saw Amy’s upcoming release, The Smallest Part, will feature Dr. Noah from this series, I knew it was time to dive in. I wanted all of the details ahead of time about Noah, but I came away with so much more by reading this story. David “Tag” Taggert was one of my favorite characters from The Law of Moses. He exudes confidence and charisma, without coming across as a jerk. I find his personality extremely endearing and his wounds and brokenness drew me to his story.


I won my first fight when I was eleven years old, and I’ve been throwing punches ever since. Fighting is the purest, truest, most elemental thing there is. Some people describe heaven as a sea of unending white. Where choirs sing and loved ones await. But for me, heaven was something else. It sounded like the bell at the beginning of a round, it tasted like adrenaline, it burned like sweat in my eyes and fire in my belly. It looked like the blur of screaming crowds and an opponent who wanted my blood. 

For me, heaven was the octagon.

Until I met Millie, and heaven became something different…

“The most intimate thing we can do is to allow the people we love most to see us at our worst. At our lowest. At our weakest. True intimacy happens when nothing is perfect.”

I adore the symbolism, emotion and effortless storytelling Amy accomplishes with each novel and this story was no exception. I loved the ties between The Song of David and David’s story in the Bible. Amy’s ability to show that Faith has a place in Romance novels, without coming across as overbearing and preachy is just one reason she is one of my best-loved authors. I will read anything she writes because I trust her ability to make me feel her words, experience the story as if I’m a character in the plot myself, and learn some of the most important lessons life has to offer through the lens of fiction. She brings all of these aspects together and wraps them up with a neat little bow at the end. I doubt I could think of an Amy Harmon book that hasn’t made me cry while reading, but left me with a full heart with the conclusion.

I was most impressed with Millie’s character in this book. She was written to life in the best possible way. Without giving anything away, I enjoyed experiencing her life through her actions and emotions. She was tough, despite the cards she was dealt and never used her circumstances as an excuse. The love between her and David was heartwarmingly beautiful.

If you’ve yet to read The Law of Moses books, be sure to snag them right away! They can be read as stand-alones, but who can stand only reading half of the story?
