Presents a tale of love, envy and selflessness, all of it revolving around Moses, as narrated by Miryam, the sister of Moses, and by his lover, Tzipporah. But could Moses have become the inspirational leader he was, without these extraordinary women at his side?
In the best-selling tradition of "The Red Tent" comes an epic retelling of the "Exodus", narrated by Miryam, the sister of Moses, and by his lover, Tzipporah. These two women weave an intricate and unforgettable tale of love, envy and selflessness, all of it revolving around one exceptional man. But could Moses have become the inspirational leader he was without these extraordinary women at his side? Rebecca Kohn takes one of the best-loved stories from the Bible and brings it startlingly to life, from Moses' humble beginnings as the baby in the rushes to his parting of the Red Sea and establishment of the Ten Commandments. Miryam and Tzipporah tell a story of sisterhood, rivalry and devotion - of great passion and unbearable sadness in the face of the ultimate sacrifice. This is a novel to make you laugh and cry, to uplift and entrance you from first page to last.
Rebecca Kohn lives in Hanover, New Hampshire, with her husband and daughter. Her first novel, The Gilded Chamber, is available as a Penguin paperback.
