Miriam (Treasures of the Nile, #2) by Mesu Andrews

Into the Wild

Miriam (Treasures of the Nile, #2) Read Online Free - 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.

In Miriam Mesu Andrews has created a gripping, well-researched novel that is a continuation of the story begun in The Pharaoh’s Daughter. After falling in love with Mesu’s writing in that novel, I opened Miriam with great anticipation. Written in a dramatic yet realistic style, this story capture...

{Review originally posted to Christian Shelf-Esteem http://wp.me/p4ExQk-1zc} It’s common to read reviews in which the reviewer boasts of how quickly they’ve read the book or how impossible it was to put down. However, I believe some books are meant to be read slowly so the gravity of the events an...

Miriam was a delight as a child in The Pharaoh's Daughter. In the novel named after her, Miriam is 86 years old and a prophetess. Moses returns to Goshen after spending 40 years away. He returns with a message from Yahweh and Miriam is more than a little jealous and angry about no longer having v...

by Andrea Renee Cox Miriam took me into the era of Israel's slavery to Egypt. It was very interesting to get a glimpse of what it could have been like to live through the plagues that preceded Yahweh leading His people (Israel) to freedom. Author Mesu Andrews really made the setting and events com...

I need to start off by saying how much I really love this cover. It fits the book so perfectly and is so well done. Second, Mesu Andrews has become such a strong voice in biblical fiction, not only for her talent of writing, but her incredible research of scripture and other historical documents...

Biblical fiction by Mesu Andrews never fails to send me running for my Bible to find the details she has brought to life! Miriam, in my opinion, is one of Mesu's finest works to date. Not only does she make the reader ponder what it would have really been like to live through slavery to the Egypt...

I really liked Miriam, the second book of the Treasures of the Nile series. Mesu Andrews does a wonderful job of making Biblical characters come alive. I have read about Miriam in Exodus many times, but she was always a two-dimensional person. Andrews adds the third dimension for me. Mesu Andrews...

If you've ever wanted to step back in time and see what it was like to live in the time of the Bible, you've got to read Mesu Andrews' books -- any of them. I've read most and loved each of them. But I will let you in on a poorly-kept secret: each one is better than the last. I know, I'm gushing,...

This book was, plain and simple, amazing! I loved how eye-opening this novel made the story of Exodus and how it came alive to me in an entirely new way! Though I wasn't expecting a second main character, Eleazar became one of my favorite character's in MIRIAM. He was very easy to relate too conc...

This is a beautifully written story of Miriam, the sister to Moses and Aaron. It is vivid and real and the characters are well developed. Sometimes they are just plain annoying but that makes them more endearing. Miriam's struggle with her faith is real as she wonders why God has spoken to Moses...
