i loved this story, hard to put down, a must read
Lovely hardback copy with beautiful color. This is a novel of how the author pictures Miriam, the sister of Moses. The story begins with Moses in the river in a waterproof basket floating down the NIle. Pharaoh's Daughter, the princess sees Moses and decides to raise him as her son. Miriam offers to find a Hebrew woman to take care of him, who of course is Moses' real mother. She nurses him and whenever the princess chose to take Moses, he becomes a prince of Egypt. Then a murder occurs and Moses flees to Midian where he marries and is a shepherd for years until God calls him to deliver the Hebrew people God's people to the Promised land.
The Novel adds the author's ideas and the timeline is not biblical, but the life of the hebrews as castoffs, slaves, brutally beaten is no doubt correct.
One question I have why did it take 10 plagues for Pharaoh to let the Hebrews go. And After all that Pharaoh destroys the rest of Egypt in the Red Sea. He obviously was totally selfish and did not care about anyone but himself.
