YA?Those familiar with the Bible will recall that Joseph, the much-loved son of Jacob, was sold into slavery in Egypt by his envious brothers. Hunt retells Joseph's story, capitalizing on the drama of the young Israelite's capricious life as well as on readers' fascination with ancient Egypt to create a deeply moving narrative that spans more than 25 years. An interpreter of dreams, Joseph went from being a servant to becoming an administrator favored by the pharaoh during a period of great famine. While refreshingly devoid of explicit sex scenes, the novel nonetheless contains all the fiery passion aroused in women by the Israelite "well favored of the Lord," as well as the intrigue that permeated the royal court. Readers will be in for a treat as the remainder of the series unfolds.?Cynthia Rieben, W. T. Woodson High School, Fairfax, VA

Nevertheless, I am bothered by some conflicts with historical facts - some of which, I admit, have only come to light in the years since this story was written, particularly DNA evidence showing that the real Tuya, was the wife of the Grand Vizier Yuya (not Paneah), with whom she was buried. (I have seen her beautiful gilded coffin.) Their daughter, Tiye, was the Great Wife of Amenhotep III, grandmother of Tutankhamen. Yuya matches all the particulars of Joseph. His son Aye (Efraim) eventually became Pharoah, as did his grandson, Akhenaten, thus fulfilling Joseph's deathbed thanks that God had made him the father & grandfather of kings.
Otherwise, a very well written story.
