This book wasn’t what I was expecting but it was very good none-the-less.
We get to dive into the life of Miriam, Moses older sister. At this point in the book is an old women but much wisdom. Moses is not around at the beginning, he is off in hiding.
Mesu paints a harsh picture of the Hebrew life under Egyptian rule and I couldn’t wait for Moses to show up and lead the people out.
Mesu obviously does a lot or research in her books to write the way she does and bring this time to life.
You will meet many different people from the Bible and get to see a new perspective of them.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Biblical fiction.
A copy of this book was given to me in exchange for an honest review.
