Experience the life of Moses as never before, following his journey from fugitive of Egypt to prophet of God. In this exhilarating follow-up to H.B. Moore’s biblical drama The Moses Chronicles: Bondage, the account of Moses’s flight from Egypt continues. Moses’s life as he knew it is over. He has chosen to stand for his beliefs at the cost of being cast out of his royal home and family. He is free of the wickedness of Egypt, but peace is not to be found, for Moses is as much an aimless wanderer as those in the nomadic tribe he encounters in the wilderness.
Exhausted by long
weeks of travel, he nevertheless jumps to action when he observes a
group of young women accosted by a band of Badrayan men at a communal
well. These lovely daughters of Jethro are grateful for his help, and
their Midianite tribe welcomes Moses with open arms. As he learns the
ways of the Midianites, his kinship with Jethro grows—as does his
admiration of one of Jethro’s daughters, Zipporah. But when Moses
suddenly receives a burning call to free the very people he has long
oppressed, will he have the courage to return to the land from which he
has been exiled?
"Moses's bruises had long since faded from deep purple to mottled blue, and finally to a pale yellow like the sane taht stretched beneath his feet."
Another great story based on Biblical events from Heather Moore. Her characters. setting, and story are fantastic.
story alternates between Zipporah and Moses kept me intrigued and
reading and falling in love with characters I know from the Bible but
don’t really know. I loved reading about
Zipporah’s life in the
desert and Moses’ transition from palace life to living as a desert
nomad, how they met, and fell in love. Zipporah, Moses, Jethro, were all
well-developed characters that I wished I could meet. The nomadic life
was rich and full with yummy sounding food. The tribal wars were intense
Heather always done a great job in her research
and she writes in a way that weaves it all into a well-paced, tense,
romantic story. Her writing is so good that sometimes I forget I’m
reading fiction! BUT what if in the hereafter this story is close to the
