The seventh of Joan Grant's "Far Memory" novels, So Moses Was Born is set in Egypt, in the time just before the birth of Moses. The story of Moses is a familiar one: found in the bull rushes, Moses' upbringing in the court of Egypt gave him the influence and power to set the Israelites free. Joan Grant enlarges the picture by depicting the events that lead up to the discovery of the baby Moses, convincingly portraying the man she believed was his father, Ramoses II, through the words of his reclusive half-brother Nebunefer. As a child growing up in Edwardian England, Joan Grant became aware of an astonishing ability to remember previous lifetimes, and as an author professed her seven novels to be based on her personal recollections of other incarnations, male and female, in ancient civilizations.
