Bezalel is a Hebrew slave to Ramses II. An artisan of the highest order, Ramses has kept him in the palace even when all other Israelites have been banned. Bezalel blames El Shaddai for isolating him from his people.
When Moses and Aaron appear one summer, and El Shaddai shakes Egypt to its core, Bezalel must reexamine his anger. Over the course of the next year, Bezalel’s life becomes intertwined with those of an Egyptian child-slave, the captain of the guard, and especially a beautiful young concubine.
When spring arrives, all of them escape with the young nation of Israel. But that’s only the beginning…
This was my favorite book that I read last month! An expertly woven tale that sucked me in and carried me along for the ride. Set in the book of Exodus when the Israelites were brought out of Egypt, this story follows a slave named Bezalel, letting us see the stories from his unique perspective. Loved the interesting and lovable (well, not the bad ones LOL) characters. The author also tied in glimpses and thoughts of God and His love that can be applied to us today. I really enjoyed it and highly recommend it. Biblical fiction brought to life!
