As famine overtakes the land, Simeon leads his brothers into Egypt to buy grain. He doesn't recognize the vengeful ruler he must bow before: Joseph, his long-lost brother. The very brother Simeon sold into slavery years ago. Now, it is the brash Simeon's turn to know imprisonment. Only Mandisa, the handmaid who interprets the ruler's language, is his saving grace. The beau ...more

A review from my old blog (of the whole series) ...

I have loved every Angela Hunt book I have ever read. Thus it was with great delight that I embarked on reading this series and another to be reviewed next. Both of these series were published years before I become introduced to Hunt and her writing. I definitely enjoy playing catch up because other than that I would have to wait for her new books to be published.

Hunt has mentioned on her blog how writing for her is a process continually improve

I loved Dreamers, so I was eager to read the next book. Thank goodness I had bought all three books, and they were waiting for me.

I have to admit, it was hard for me to get into the story. I don’t know why, but it just didn’t capture me like Dreamers did. Dreamers, even though it dealt with some tough issues, was so compelling a message that it made up for everything. Brothers also dealt with some

An interesting and enjoyable book about the Joseph mentioned in Genesis. This book covers the part of his life when his brothers come to Egypt. It's the second in a trilogy about Joseph. The first book, Dreamers, which covers Joseph's life from the time he's sold into slavery to the time he's made ruler over Egypt, was also good, although for some reason I found Brothers easier to read. While I'm fairly certain the story of Joseph didn't really happen this way, Angela Hunt did a good job keeping ...more

This historical fiction book is a great read and the second in a trilogy about Joseph mentioned in Genesis. This book covers the part of his life when his eleven brothers and father come to Egypt. The author states that she has done extensive research from both Egyptian and Biblical writings. The character of Simeon receives a lot of focus in this story. I'm excited to read the third book of the trilogy, Journey.

This is the second book in a trilogy - historical fiction about the life of Joseph. I enjoyed it so much because it made the story of Joseph, one of my favorite Old Testament stories, really come to life. I was able to better visualize the beautiful work of God in Joseph's life.

I really liked this historical fiction book about Joseph from the Bible. I re-read this book at a time where my own faith in God is being tested, and it really encouraged me that God can make good things come from any situation. I'm excited to read the rest of this series!

Oh my gosh ! If you love biblical fiction this book you will love. It's
fiction mixed w/ biblical truth - the story of Joseph. There is
a book before this "Dreamers" and a new one coming out - book 3.

Love it !

Be sure to read Dreamers first. Enjoyable, eye-opening in many ways. Gives insight into the story of Joseph, the Bible and in some ways myself.

You know how the next books in a trilogy are supposed to get weaker. Not true with Angela Hunt. Another lovely book, more about Simeon than Joseph.
