A Story of Love, Desperation, and Hope During a Great Biblical Epoch

Sold into slavery by her father and forsaken by the man she was supposed to marry, young Egyptian Kiya must serve a mistress who takes pleasure in her humiliation. When terrifying plagues strike Egypt, Kiya is in the middle of it all.

To save her older brother and escape the bonds of slavery, Kiya flees with the Hebrews during the Great Exodus. She finds herself utterly dependent on a fearsome God she's only just beginning to learn about, and in love with a man who despises her people. With everything she's ever known swept away, will Kiya turn back toward Egypt or surrender her life and her future to Yahweh?

Wow!
5 stars By Jacqui, Oct 02 2017
I was drawn into this story from the very first page (so much so that I didn't even realise that it was written in first person until chapter 8.( I generally don't like first person books) Although as the author admits, it is a fiction book, it really gave me a new thought about what both the Egyptians and the Hebrews went through at the time of the Exodus. Written from the eyes of an Egyptian slave who joins with a Hebrew family to escape Egypt it changed the story for me from my Sunday school understanding and picture of cute frogs in Pharaoh's bed and a large group of people happily trotting along after Moses to thinking on what the people really would have felt. It causes you to think deeper as you read these well know bible stories and ask God to open your eyes to what He has to say to you through the people who walked them. A powerful story.

A wonderfully written story about Israel's exodus from Egypt, from the perspective of an Egyptian woman. Very engaging from the beginning and you'll fall in love with the characters!

The Exodus comes to life!
5 stars By Katie Donovan, May 31 2016
Counted With The Stars presents Israel's exodus from Egypt from the perspective of Kiya, a young Egyptian woman sold into slavery to pay her father's debts.  Ancient Egypt comes to life in vivid detail as Kiya struggles with the transition from a life of wealth and privilege to a life of servitude to a woman who takes every opportunity she can to reprimand and humiliate her.  Yet out of this springs an unexpected friendship with Shira, a young Hebrew slave whose baffling optimism and kindness intrigue Kiya.  One of the things that made this novel so fascinating was the characters in this novel have no knowledge of Moses' and Aaron's appearances in Pharaoh's court.  Their confusion as they try to make sense of what is happening gives great insight into the way in which the plagues meant so much more than physical devastation to the Egyptians. By the time the final plague hits, everything Kiya has ever known has been turned on its head, and she, her mother, and her brother flee Egypt with Shira's family and the Hebrews. Journeying with the Hebrews in the desert, Kiya struggles to make sense of where her life is now headed.  While she is thoroughly convinced that Yahweh is God, his unbridled power frightens her. Kiya's story was beautifully written, emotionally engaging, and to read it is to become fully immersed in the ancient Egyptian world and the exodus of the Hebrews
