This is the story of Jochebed, mother of three formidable leaders: Miriam, Aaron, and Moses. I enjoyed this Historical, Biblical fiction story. The author gives us a story of what the daily life of Jochebed and her family could have been like. So descriptive, the lessons in faith, love and hope made this a pleasure to read and made this story come to life. I enjoyed this book and if you like Biblical fiction, I think you will too.
I requested a copy from NetGalley and Barbour Publishing.
ABOUT THE BOOK: SLENDER REEDS: Jochebed’s Hope
Trapped beneath 400 years of Egypt’s injustices, the Hebrew people await deliverance from generations of Egyptian slavery. But while it is still dark, God is at work. Young Jochebed is unaware the Master Weaver is preparing her to mother three formidable leaders: Miriam, Aaron, and Moses. Shiphrah, the half-Egyptian midwife tasked to kill Hebrew male newborns, remembers childhood stories of a merciful God and cannot resist His call on her life.
Two women, each following the dangerous path God has set before them—this is their story.
