I fell in love with this cover and put this “want to read” shelf last year. I chose to showcase this book this week because I finally broke down and got it! I love historical fiction, especially things about Egypt. I really can’t wait to pick this one up. It might be a couple of weeks before I get to it but…soon!

A Story of Love, Desperation and Hope During a Great Biblical Epoch
Sold into slavery by her father and forsaken by the man she was supposed to marry, young Egyptian Kiya must serve a mistress who takes pleasure in her humiliation. When terrifying plagues strike Egypt, Kiya is in the middle of it all.
To save her older brother and escape the bonds of slavery, Kiya flees with the Hebrews during the Great Exodus. She finds herself utterly dependent on a fearsome God she’s only just beginning to learn about, and in love with a man who despises her people. With everything she’s ever known swept away, will Kiya turn back toward Egypt or surrender her life and her future to Yahweh?
