Exodus is a successful example of a story told from multiple perspectives; the author avoided repetition and the various points of view deepened my understanding of how both Egyptians and Hebrews were affected by the politics, plagues, and the Hebrews' exodus from Egypt, the only home they have ever known, into a dangerous wilderness. It was interesting to see Moses portrayed as an outsider and not initially perceived by the people of Israel as their leader, but as time progresses they accept his stewardship over them. Aaron's role as his brother and spokesperson is significant, and I didn't realize the hand he had in executing some of the miracles (time for a visit to my Old Testament...). I appreciated the continuing story of Moses' Egyptian mother Bithiah and Mered, one of the Hebrew scribes in the palace and the one who told her about the Lord, the God of Israel. The action doesn't stop after they leave Egypt, and it was a nice wrap-up to include some of the early experiences in the desert. I HIGHLY recommend this entire series!!! It is definitely one I will be reading again and keeping in my personal library.

I liked that we got the view points of several different characters. Moses and Aaron, as they were following God's command to set his people free and the difficulties they each had to overcome in order to accomplish that. Bithiah, the Egyptian woman who raised Moses as her own, and was happy to see him again. She changed a lot over the years which made living in the palace difficult at times. And Miriam, who was happy Moses was back but had some issues with his wife, Zipporah.
I grew to love each of these characters more as I got to know them better. It also helped me understand the children of Israel more. Little did they know when they started out how long they would actually end up living in the wilderness. They didn't understand freedom at all since they had always been slaves and there were parts of that life that were difficult to give up.
I loved this series and how this story came to life for me! I've read enough books by Heather Moore to know that it will be well-researched and well-written and hold my attention from beginning to end. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys fictional accounts of scripture stories!
I received a copy from the publisher for an honest review. My opinion is 100% my own.
What I love about books like this is how the stories and people from the Bible are brought to life. The people become more human, and their struggles and emotions become real. Heather Moore does this so well. It's sometimes hard for me to imagine such things when I am reading stories like this directly from the Bible. I can appreciate the amount of time, thought and research a book like this involves.
Through the course of this series, Moses has become familiar to me. I feel like I know and understand him better. This book is full of miracles but also such devastation. It's hard for me to fathom how the Hebrews and Egyptians both could have seen so many wonders and miracles wrought by the hand of the Lord and still doubted. I wonder what I would have done if I had been there? I'm really glad I wasn't, but still. This book makes you think.
Historical fiction is one of my favorite genres, especially when it is well done. I love books by H.B. Moore. She is fantastic in this genre (and others too!). I know what's coming for the Hebrew people and I'm looking forward to the next book.
