Miriam - by Mesu Andrews Out March 15, 2016!!!

The Hebrews call me prophetess, the Egyptians a seer.
But I am neither. I am simply a watcher of Israel 
and the messenger of El Shaddai.
When He speaks to me in dreams, I interpret. When He whispers a melody, I sing.
At eighty-six, Miriam had devoted her entire life to loving El Shaddai and serving His people as both midwife and messenger. Yet when her brother Moses returns to Egypt from exile, he brings a disruptive message. God has a new name – Yahweh – and has declared a radical deliverance for the Israelites.
Miriam and her beloved family face an impossible choice: cling to familiar bondage or embrace uncharted freedom at an unimaginable cost. Even if the Hebrews survive the plagues set to turn the Nile to blood and unleash a maelstrom of frogs and locusts, can they weather the resulting fury of the Pharaoh?
Enter an exotic land where a cruel Pharaoh reigns, pagan priests wield black arts, and the Israelites cry out to a God they only think they know.

I've been a fan of all of Mesu's books that I've read so far. You can tell she puts so much time into researching the characters, the time, the customs, the locations and the history in general. She doesn't just tell you about the people and the plot, but she brings you into their time and location with all the details. From the attire of each character to the washing customs, she includes it all, so you can really know what the characters were experiencing. It's just one of the things I enjoy so much about Mesu's books. And while I had a harder time getting into this book, it was still an enjoyable read. I should probably mention here that the reason for my difficulty was not the writing, but that we recently got a newborn baby added to out family with only a few days notice, so things were hectic for a few weeks while we adjusted, leaving very little time (or energy, thanks to middle of the night feedings again!) for reading. It's hard to really enjoy a book and crave more when you read the first chapter one week, and the second a week later and so on and so forth. 

Thanks to Blogging for Books & BFF of Mesu, I received a copy of Miriam and the opportunity to provide an honest review. All the opinions I have expressed are my own.
