Mesu Andrews carefully unearthed truth from Exodus and used the pieces she discovered to recreate one of the mightiest stories of God's redemption. I kept my Bible close while reading Miriam so that I could see the truth woven in the story.
If you have never read the first 15 chapters of Exodus, Miriam provides a story to set the scene. If you have read these chapters a hundred times, Miriam fills in the blanks so that you can consider what might have been.
I received this book from Waterbook Press, a division of Penguin Random House, in exchange for an honest review.
Mesu knows how to draw her readers in and you will not be disappointed! You'll be so drawn in time will fly. With a heartbreaking sigh, the story will be at its last sentence. May you enjoy and fall in love into the biblical life of Miriam as I did.
I received an advanced readers copy of this book from Waterbrook Multinomah Publishing, a division of Penguin House, for my honest and unbiased opinion of this book.
Having always been fascinated with the pyramids, the hieroglyphics, the stories of the ancient Egyptian gods, here is the the counterpoint to that amazing view. We see not only the riches and power of Egypt, but the corruption, the devaluation women, the plotting to ascend and keep the throne,the horrific condition of slaves.
Fear, peace,terror, greed, contentment, want, plenty, life, death, love, and hate;all are woven together as deftly as the famous Egyptian cotton into an incredibly moving story that will stay with me forever.
Halfway through this story, I wondered how Mesu can justify not sticking to Biblical accounts. As I read on, I was amazed at the twists that prove that Mesu DOES INDEED STAY TRUE TO SCRIPTURE, but uses strategic verses and story turns that sew everything seamlessly together.
I was thrilled to received this book and another as a gift through a contest sponsored by Mesu Andrews, Multmomah/Waterbrook, and Mommynificent's blog.
A little Egyptian girl who was adopted,
then became the Pharaoh's sister,
became a wife to a soldier,
eventually rescued a Hebrew boy,
became Pharaoh's daughter,
ended up being sheltered and became a Hebrew woman.
This was Mesu Andrews' Christian Biblical fiction story
of the adopted mother of Moses
in the first book of the Treasure of the Nile series called
"The Pharaoh's Daughter"
I had a very difficult time putting it down as I got attached to most of the characters (except for the Pharaohs and Viziers - they all seemed like greedy crooks - and a couple others were a bit on the "nutty" side).
It had enough suspense to keep me turning the pages, yet slow enough that it didn't keep me up late at night.
I really enjoyed reading this book and I hope I get a chance to read the rest of the series some day!
Here was one of my favorite passages:
The Ramessid officer halted and banged on the door of the tower with the the hilt of his dagger.
"Squad four, returning with prisoners."
A metal latch clanked, and a small peep door opened. A set of dark eyes squinted beneath a bushy black brow.
"Why take prisoners? If they are Hittites, kill them. If they are escaping slaves, kill them. If they're-"
Mered's captor bashed his dagger against the door.
"They say they have a message for the general (Horemheb) and commanders Sebak and Pirameses.
Do you want to withhold a message from any of the three?"
The Pharaoh's Daughter by Mesu Andrews
found in Chapter 25
(an officer withholding information from a commanding general is NOT recommended ....)
