RELEASE DATE: March 2, 2021
She has prayed for deliverance from Egypt.
But perhaps the greatest liberation happens within the heart.
From the very beginning, Miriam has lived in her younger brother’s shadow. Thrust into the role of protective older sister before Moses was even born, she will grow up into a woman who not only keeps her family’s secret but bears the burden of leading a new nation.
In her mind, she knows that she is serving both her God and her people. But in her heart, Miriam yearns for more. She longs to experience the privileges Moses has–to talk with God face-to-face. But when God finally does speak directly to her, the outcome is not at all what she expects.
With her impeccable research and keen eye for detail, bestselling author Jill Eileen Smith offers this epic novel to fill in the gaps in Miriam’s story, following her from childhood to motherhood, obscurity to notoriety, and yearning to fulfillment as she learns that what God promises He provides–in His own perfect timing.
“But this was a time that Ima had spoken of— a time when they would have to trust their God with things they could not control.”
“He was weak and had no strength to do what God had required of him. And yet . . . if God remained his stronghold, his purpose, he would trust Him for the power and the words to say to Pharaoh.”
For me it was the beautiful and systematic progression of the book that really captivated me. It allowed me to be invested in the story and characters.
This book was totally amazing and life changing. It felt like I was watching a movie. I loved reading the different character’s point of view. I enjoyed reading how each of them walked with God and how their story wove into a very captivating book.
This book displayed God’s holiness and love in such a wonderful way that was touching and inspiring.
I received a copy of this book and this is my honest opinion.
