Synopses & Reviews
Andrews (The Pharaoh’s Daughter) offers her unique brand of in depth Bible knowledge and storytelling flair in this tale of Miriam sister of the famous Moses and Israel’s prophetess during the slavery of Israelites in Egypt. Miriam’s strong faith comes into question when she begins to experience her gentle husband El Shaddai as Yahweh God of Moses as well as plagues and death. Before the story ends with the Israelites’ miraculous freedom after the final horrible plague Andrews offers readers a beautiful and nuanced picture of Miriam and other characters: Eleazer Miriam’s beloved nephew and slave soldier; Taliah his young and headstrong wife; Hoshea Eleazer’s right hand man of gigantic faith; and even stubborn Pharaoh Ramesses himself. Andrews is gifted at bringing the past to life and readers will thrill at God’s victory even as they struggle as Miriam did to understand God’s plan. This novel is biblical fiction at its finest.
