Miriam
By

Rating
For all her eighty-six years, Miriam has found complete contentment in her relationship with El Shaddai, but when her brother Moses returns from exile proclaiming God's new name, Yahweh, troubling doubts plague her night and day. Respected as a midwife and for tending her aging parents, she is suddenly forced to submit to Moses and Aaron's leadership. And then Miriam, like the rest of Israel, endures the consequences of the first three plagues with the Egyptians: the bloody Nile, the frogs, the gnats/lice, without any hope or explanation of what is coming next. Miriam immerses readers into the amazing events that transpired in Miriam's life between the time she heard Yahweh's new name and when she led Israel's women in a victory dance across the Red Sea. This is the second book in The Treasures of the Nile series. - Publisher

Reviews

"Andrews (The Pharaoh's Daughter) offers her unique brand of in-depth Bible knowledge and storytelling flair in this tale of Miriam, sister of the famous Moses and Israel's prophetess during the slavery of Israelites in Egypt. Miriam's strong faith comes into question when she begins to experience her gentle husband, El-Shaddai, as Yahweh, God of Moses, as well as plagues and death. Before the story ends with the Israelites' miraculous freedom after the final, horrible plague, Andrews offers readers a beautiful and nuanced picture of Miriam and other characters: Eleazer, Miriam's beloved nephew and slave soldier; Taliah, his young and headstrong wife; Hoshea, Eleazer's right-hand man, of gigantic faith; and even stubborn Pharaoh Ramesses himself. Andrews is gifted at bringing the past to life, and readers will thrill at God's victory even as they struggle, as Miriam did, to understand God's plan. This novel is biblical fiction at its finest." --Publishers Weekly (starred review) "Mesu Andrews shines brilliant new light on the epic we only thought we knew, transforming the familiar biblical account of the Exodus with a narrative grounded in a deep love for God and his word. Miriam illuminates the power and majesty of Yahweh, while weaving a story of real people waiting for deliverance from a God they have not yet learned to trust." --Stephanie Landsem, author of The Tomb: a Novel of Martha (The Living Water Series) "Mesu Andrews's novels have transformed my ability to hear the heartbeat of biblical figures like Job, Dinah, and Solomon. Miriam brings another cast of familiar characters to vibrant life--Miriam, Moses, Eleazar, Aaron, Hur--mingling them seamlessly with an imagined circle of loved ones that will have readers eagerly turning pages to witness God's stunning power at work for his people, both personally and nationally. With skillful prose, impeccable research, and a clear devotion to the biblical account of Israel's Exodus from Egypt, Mesu Andrews depicts these Old Testament men and women with a sparkling clarity, never shying away from what makes them relatable human beings--the failings, triumphs, and yearnings that are timeless." --Lori Benton, author of Burning Sky, The Pursuit of Tamsen Littlejohn, and The Wood's Edge "Mesu Andrews's engaging novel, Miriam, gives us a new and vibrant appreciation for life in Egypt as the Lord visits the land with ten unforgettable plagues. With fascinating insight into biblical history as well as the human heart, this story will capture your attention until the last page." -- Tessa Afshar, award-winning author of Land of Silence and Pearl in the San
