Recommended for: hist. fictn and old testament lovers

Lovely writing, heart-rending story. Easy read. Brought Moses and Zipporah to life unlike anything I've read before. This author clearly brings scholarship and great heart to his work. I may read this again. When I finished the book, I pondered and thought, grieved, and marveled in admiration of this woman and Moses. Then I reviewed my timeline of biblical events, and found conflicts between sources in their accounts of who lived when and who was related to whom. The whole story became more interesting, not less. Do read this if you are interested in women of the old testament, or in history/geography of the region of Canaan or Egypt. Recommended highly.
