From Amazon~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?
My Comments~ Biblical Fiction Well Done!
Compelling retelling of the Exodus story from the viewpoint of a pagan slave who is enamored by an Israelite slave. Will his faith lead her to the One true God and true freedom? Or will a brutal rival force her to remain a slave and be his concubine? Told from the perspective of a pagan female slave who sees all gods as fickle beings to be wooed and placated to obtain favors, this account examines the Hebrew people, their faith in the One True God, and their exodus from Egypt to freedom. Compellingly told, this story held me enthralled up to the very last word. Well written, well crafted, well told, Biblically and historically accurate story. What a riveting story!
