I didn't realize that this is the second book in the series, Sarah: A Novel is actually the first, but I don't think that the order matters here.

Interesting re-creation of the story of Moses through the eyes of his wife Zipporah, who served as the inspiration for him to follow the word of God and to free the Hebrews in Egypt.

I enjoyed this book, but I would have liked to have read more insight into Moses.

Sarah I've had Sarah on my shelf for years. Maybe I'll read it as part of my around the world challenge.

Sera I've had both of these collecting dust for a long time, too. I picked up Zipporah for my A-Z Title Challenge. I liked it, but I was hoping for more drama. I'll go back and read Sarah probably next year.
