Miriam (Treasures Of The Nile Series)

Mesu Andrews
Also Available In
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.

A must-read for Biblical fiction lovers
5 stars By Katie Donovan, Apr 30 2016
This was a fantastic read; rich in emotional and historical details and peppered with nuggets of spiritual insight.  When the story opens, Miriam is eighty-six years old.  She is the only person El Shaddai has spoken through since the time of Joseph; until the day He seemingly falls silent.  That's when Moses, the brother who fled Egypt forty years earlier, returns with Aaron to tell them that he has met with God on His mountain, and has been sent to deliver the children of Israel.  She should rejoice, but instead feels abandoned by God, and guilty at her selfishness.  The other primary character is Eleazar, Aaron's third son and the nephew of Miriam.  Unlike Miriam, he cannot trust in a God who allows His people to suffer as the Hebrews have.  He is the slave commander at Rameses and a bodyguard to Pharaoh's second firstborn, and therefore perfectly placed to witness the effect of the plagues on the Egyptian court - and bear the brunt of their displeasure as the plagues intensify.  It's easy to look back now and see what God was doing, but it isn't always easy to trust Him when we're in the middle, and that was very true of the characters in this novel.  But trust they did, however imperfectly.  Watching these characters grow through this time in Egypt's history, both personally and spiritually, was richly rewarding.
