Slender Reeds by Texie Susan Gregory

I really enjoyed reading about Jochebed’s story. I have never seen a book that tells how Moses mother grew up. This was well written and it made me laugh and cry. People of that time period really had a hard time. I really liked Jochebed and Shiphrah. They each had many trials to work through in their lives. I received a copy of this book from Barbour for a fair and honest opinion.Trapped beneath 400 years of Egypt s inj ustices, the Hebrew people await deliverance from generations of Egyptian slavery. But while it is still dark, God is at work. Young Jochebed is unaware the Master Weaver is preparing her to mother three formidable leaders: Miriam, Aaron, and Moses. Shiphrah, the half-Egyptian midwife tasked to kill Hebrew male newborns, remembers childhood stories of a merciful God and cannot resist His call on her life. Two women, each following the dangerous path God has set before them this is their story”
