About the book:
In her eventful lifetime, Miriam was many things to many people: protective older sister, song leader, prophetess, leper. But between the highs and the lows, she was a girl who dreamed of freedom, a woman who longed for love, a leader who made mistakes, and a friend who valued connection.
With her impeccable research and keen eye for detail, bestselling author Jill Eileen Smith offers this epic story to fill in the gaps and imagine how Miriam navigated the challenges of holding on to hope, building a family in the midst of incredible hardship, and serving as a leader of a difficult people, all while living in her brother’s shadow. Follow Miriam’s journey from childhood to motherhood, obscurity to notoriety, and yearning to fulfillment as she learns that what God promises he provides–in his own perfect timing.
This was really good! Biblical fiction isn’t usually my go to to read, but I liked this one. I liked how it brought the Bible to life. Not only do we read from Miriam’s perspective, we also get Moses’s and Zipporah’s as well. I feel that the author did a good job taking everything that is in the Bible and applying it to this story to give us a better look at the events that happened.
