Bathsheba is taken against her will by the most powerful man in Israel. A month later, she discovers she carries the evidence of their secret, dangerous encounter. With her husband at war, this pregnancy could mean her death or untold greatness. When the king finds out that she is with child, he immediately summons her husband home from war, a cunning plan in mind.

  • Will the king's plan work?
  • Will her life be spared?
  • Will there be any consequences for the injustice?
  • Will love grow in the middle of pain and give birth to second chances?

This novel is a fictional retelling of one of the greatest Bible stories of all time. This is a story of injustice, betrayal, deception, heartbreak, forgiveness, love, redemption and second chances.

It reminds us that there are consequences for our choices, and we serve a God of justice.  He can use the tragedies in our lives and turn them into purpose.

No pain is ever wasted with God.

Betrayal & Pain

Becoming Queen Bathsheba covers a harrowing tale of heartbreak, betrayal and pain. From the pain of powerlessness; succumbing to the whims of men and kings, to the burn of betrayal and knowing that a singular act has changed your life forever – perhaps to the point of death.


Surpassing all, greater than all the ambitions of the characters in this book, love shows up over and again to conquer fear, hate, evil, betrayal and doubt. What started as a result of a self-seeking act, becomes an illustration of love at work.


From redeeming a woman that would have been destined to die a defiled widow, to the redeeming love of God, Becoming Bathsheba tells a story of flaws, penance, forgiveness and redemption.

It’s easy to see how Amanda Bedzrah is an award-winning writer. Entertaining from start to finish.

Meet The Characters

Queen BathshebaA wife, a widow, a queen

Wife to Uriah the Hittite, one of the king’s Thirty, Bathsheba is happy with her position in life. Secure in her husband’s love and the happy union they have created, she lives with but one goal to achieve: to birth a child for her husband and continue with their blissful lives.

Her tranquillity is smashed with one brutal act and her life changes forever. Follow her story as she grows from sheltered wife to grief-stricken widow, to the position of the most powerful woman in Israel.

King DavidGood people do bad things

A ruler after God’s heart – blessed beyond measure and favoured at home and in battle – David allows momentary weakness to change the course of his dynasty forever, bringing strife to his household, but unimaginable love to his heart. Driven by lust, he sins against his trusted official, his official’s wife, and his God.

From the arrogance of a king’s power, to total submission to the will of his God, to the tender recipient of a woman’s love, follow king David as his actions changed him, then shaped him for better, forever.

AnushkaFrom slavery to God’s love

Can God use a slave girl to carry out His will? When her mistress is at her darkest hour, Anushka’s intelligence, compassion and unwavering loyalty helps her mistress to navigate the treacherous void between life and death for carrying a child not belonging to her husband, and, in turn, ultimately leads Anushka herself to God.

What People Are Saying

Rachel OnamusiViva Naija

I have never known the story of David and Bathsheba to be told with such honesty, heart and fairness. Amanda Bedzrah’s telling of a story of savage force that ends in love sweeps you away to another place and time, shedding light on the reality of women’s lives along the way. It also tells how things can all work out for good when God is involved. I thought I knew this story; I thought wrong!

Amanda is a consummate storyteller. Looking forward to reading her other Christian fiction books!

Christa Randall

A friend told me about Becoming Queen Bathsheba and I decided to fill a lazy, rainy weekend reading it. I devoured it in one sitting, unable to do anything else as I turned from bath-house to humble abode to palace. The writer catches you up in the story, making you sense the danger, the grief and the love in all the right places. I would utterly recommend this for anyone into Christian fiction, particularly if you like the romantic sub-genre. A must-read!

Zahra Frost

This book is such an exciting discovery! I’m reading Becoming Queen Bathsheba right now, and I’m enjoying both the author’s perspective and way the story is unfolding. I love that I am caught up in all the drama, even though I know what should happen next. Simply written; powerfully moving. I’m here for it!

Kyla East

In a sub-genre that’s already rather crowded and a story that has been told countless times, Becoming Queen Bathsheba is a refreshingly honest, interesting and insightful read. Where many authors glaze over Bathsheba’s experience and the real sense of betrayal she must have felt and the danger she was in, Amanda Bedzrah dwells in that space of being a woman without a voice in a world where men rule and women pay the price. What is a few lines in the Bible is actually the disruption of a woman’s life, her future, and her destiny. I thoroughly enjoyed this. Well done!
