Miriam by Mesu Andrews was a book that was both compelling and at the same time bordered on hard to read. Hard to read because I know the story so well, but compelling as it is a fictional impression of the characters we are so familiar with and brings them to life.
There are some insightful thoughts and concepts which give you much to ponder. You also are able to put flesh and blood to the people we all have read so much about and they become more three dimensional and come of the page. You will have a little more understanding of the times, the fears, even the comfort of the familiar. The courage needed to choose to leave the only life they had known.
However, you have to remind yourself that this is a work of fiction and may not be at all the type of qualities and the persons they were.
I would recommend this book to people who want to understand a little more the life and choices the Israelites had.
I received this book free for an honest review from WaterBrook Publishers.
