Miriam realistically struggles with the feeling that God disapproves of or has abandoned her. At times, these emotions take over, but she is still able to communicate Yahweh's love and faithfulness to others, especially her nephew Eleazar and his intended, Taliah. Neither are eager to believe in Yahweh. Taliah has grown up as an outcast because although a Hebrew, she was taken into the Egyptian harem. Eleazar has felt the sting of his parents' rejection and gone through so many trials, he sees God as a vindictive and petty Being. Both these characters must go on an arduous spiritual journey to find the truth. The journey is well-written and gratifying. I especially found myself identifying with the intellectual Taliah.
Mesu remains true to the Scriptural account of the plagues and the parting of the Red Sea, while giving readers realistic details and peeks into psyches that the Bible doesn't offer. She also fleshes out characters who are only names to many Bible readers. I'm going to investigate her other books soon and invite you to do so as well. I also hope for a third or even fourth Treasures of the Nile story.
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.
