About the Book

Miriam retells the profoundly moving story of Moses' older sister, whose instrumental role in the Exodus is only part of her destiny. Miriam's greatest struggle is within her own heart; her ultimate victory is a hard-won faith strengthened in the crucible of the desert, tested by her own pride and arrogance, and ultimately affirmed by God's mercy and grace. Retaining biblical authenticity while resourcefully filling in historical, cultural, and narrative details, Lois Henderson skillfully mingles historical events -- the devastation of the plagues, the miracle of the manna, the receiving of the Ten Commandments -- with brilliantly realized portraits of some of the Old Testament's most famous figures, bringing alive the excitement and epic drama of Moses' return to Egypt and the deliverance of the children of Israel. Watching history unfold through Miriam's eyes, sharing in the joy, pain, doubt, and ultimate faith at the heart of her story, the reader is caught up in the destinies of Miriam, Moses, their brother Aron, the Israelite people, and the world. - Back cover.
