The story of the Exodus is told from a variety of view points in this novel. In doing so Sonya Contreras allows the reader to see and understand different view points. While we tend to think of just Moses and Pharaoh when we read this story, it involved all of the Hebrew, Egyptians, and other nations as they heard about the things going on. I did feel that perhaps there were too many view points and it created a few too many characters.
Readers will enjoy Sonya Contreras research and attention to details. You will be able to get a better view of ancient Egypt than before and enrich the way you understand that historical time.
I received this book free from Litfuse in exchange for my honest review.
