The Nubian Princess: A Biblical Novel Paperback – September 15, 2010

My overview is that the book is as much a textbook as it is a novel. The author devotes much time to the minutiae of each scene so that the reader feels that he has learnt a great deal whilst, at the same time, gaining fascinating insights of life in those times.
I did find it rather strange that a 70 year plus Moses could be "in love" with a delightful young Nubian Princess before he had even met her - and that he seemed to become her husband within a mere 24 hours (although, sadly, not capable of first-night consummation!)
I regard the Bible as no more than random jottings from diverse scribes, few of whom were even around at the time of their reported events. This novel, however, personalises a particularly important period that was brought to life in the Bible.
I did enjoy the book enormously and look forward to its sequel.
I believe we have found a new true storyteller. I want his next effort sooner rather than later. And, I want the author to please remain with the historical aspects -- it adds so much to the tension of our understanding.
