This was a wonderful historical fiction book. It really brings the Old Testament to life. It shows the trials and tribulations that the Jews and Gentiles went through. I look forward to reading the other books in this series. This was number two in the series but you can read it as a stand alone. It is so thought provoking. It shows how times really haven’t changed as much as we would like sometimes. I received this book from bookfun.org for a fair and honest opinion.
