Since high school, I’ve been drawn to the history of Ancient Egypt. As my faith has grown, the history of the Jewish people has become more important to me. So, this novel, which combines the two, was a no-brainer for me.
The detail in the writing is amazing. It draws you into the story without dropping a load of description on you. It’s so well-woven, you barely notice it.
There are some stretches where the story feels like it slows down, and it definitely took some turns I was not expecting, but I never lost interest. I will very likely read more in the Silent Years series.
