Today is just one post of a several where I shall be talking about the book, “Miriam” by Mesu Andrews. :)
Have you heard of this book yet? It looks beautiful! And I’m looking forward to reading it. I should be getting my ARC (advanced readers copy) soon and I keep checking the mailbox expectantly every day!
You wanna hear about the book now? Here’s the cover:
It follows after the book “The Pharaoh’s Daughter” (you can read my review of that one here).
“Miriam” shall release March 15th, 2016
About the Book:
The Hebrews call me prophetess, the Egyptians a seer.
But I am neither. I am simply a watcher of Israel
and the messenger of El Shaddai.
When He speaks to me in dreams, I interpret. When He whispers a melody, I sing.
At eighty-six, Miriam had devoted her entire life to loving El Shaddai and serving His people as both midwife and messenger. Yet when her brother Moses returns to Egypt from exile, he brings a disruptive message. God has a new name – Yahweh – and has declared a radical deliverance for the Israelites.
Miriam and her beloved family face an impossible choice: cling to familiar bondage or embrace uncharted freedom at an unimaginable cost. Even if the Hebrews survive the plagues set to turn the Nile to blood and unleash a maelstrom of frogs and locusts, can they weather the resulting fury of the Pharaoh?
Enter an exotic land where a cruel Pharaoh reigns, pagan priests wield black arts, and the Israelites cry out to a God they only think they know. – See more at WaterBrook Multnomah
As I said, I’m looking forward to it!
