You will never look at the life of Moses in the same way after meeting his mother and grandmother in this masterful debut novel. Some Bible stories become so familiar that it is often forgotten that they involve real people, real women and men, and real families. You are drawn into the heartbreaking lives of people who struggled to hold onto God’s promises while under the oppression of Egyptian slavery and the desperate mother who would place her baby in a basket not knowing if it would be a cradle or a coffin. Gregory has a wonderful ability to tell a compelling story and bring biblical chapters to life.
