The Moses Chronicles: Bondage

The Moses Chronicles Bondage

Moses: Struggling with not quite fitting into the popular beliefs and practices of the other Egyptians, Moses finds himself starting to find empathy for the Hebrew Slaves. Not willing to “visit” the harems with the other royalty, helping to free a Hebrew from false accusations of being a thief, and protecting a group of Hebrew women from the leering grasps of a fellow Egyptian are just a few ways that Moses notices that he’s not quite like the others.

Miriam/Caleb: Miriam, a Hebrew slave, has always watched Moses the best she can without becoming detected. Miriam finds herself loving Moses and wanting to protect and watch over him, being his older sister who helped save him from being killed when he was an infant, she can’t seem to let him go. Miriam pushes his little basket through the water into the arms of an Egyptian Princess, Bithiah. In love with Miriam, Caleb tries multiple times to keep her out of harm’s way. Not an easy task, because Miriam is always jumping from one dangerous situation to another.

Bithiah/Mered: Bithiah struggles with being a “branded” princess, since she is an unwed mother, but having adopted a Hebrew baby and pulling him from the water, she rises above that brand and loves Moses with all her heart. Secretly she is drawn to the palace scribe, Mered.

I had an internal battle of whether I wanted to read this book, I’ve grown up knowing the story of Moses and how he frees the Hebrews from bondage, but that’s all this was to me, a story from the Bible. Finally, my curiosity and my love of reading new books won out and I opened up the first page. To say I was hooked was an understatement! The characters came alive, they begged for your attention, and I couldn’t put it down. Every free second I had, the book was in my hand and I was devouring the words. This old story was rewritten and given life. What a remarkable account. I recommend this book to any reader, it didn’t fall into my specifications of a “religious” book, and I feel anyone would enjoy it, I never felt preached to. Bondage is a great read for all types of readers, whether it is: mystery, suspense, romance, or action.

I received a free ecopy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
