Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Mary Sue Preissner
Levitin weaves a tale of romance and religious faith between Jesse, a Hebrew slave, and Jennat a half-Egyptian/Syrian servant. While their backgrounds are at opposites, they are attracted to one another. The tale unfolds during the Israelite Exodus from Egypt and later wanderings in the desert. Jesse must come to terms with his desires versus his family's beliefs. Jennat must decide whether to continue her life as it is, or to forge a new, different kind of existence with Jesse.

    What A Great Story!

    I was looking for a good book to read when I came across 'Ecapse from Egypt.' I love anything to do with ancient Egypt, so I started reading. After starting it, I couldn't put it down! I recommend this book to teenagers, like myself, and others as well. The story is filled with so much emotion, love, sadness, and happiness. Anyone who loves reading or Egypt sould read it, and see for yourself! :)

    This book is overall the BEST book

    This book has excitement,love,sorrow. . .well,it would take too long to say all this book has. The best books always have you feeling for the character. In Escape from Egypt, I felt the weight on Jesse's back as he carried bricks in the quarry, Jennet's sorrow being a concubine... again, I'm listing something that can go on forever.The point is, this is one of the top ten books I've read in my life.

    'Escape' explores spiritual conflict and spiritual differences

    I love reading about Egpyt both in fiction and in non-fiction. I read whatever book I can afford to buy or find in the library. This book appealed to me because it revolved around an event in both Egyptian and Jewish history that greatly intrests me. Although the book did not give me any particularly new insight into the life of the Jewish slaves, 'Escape' served as good entertainment. Anyone that loves to read about Egypt will enjoy this book. An unespected subject in the book was the spiritual conflict the main characters, Jesse and Jennat, encounter as they get to know each other. Jesse's family also copes with the doubts that torture them. Their wanderings in the desert add fuel to their uncertainties, but eventually helps them dispel their doubts about God and their faiths. Most of us have had doubts about our religious beliefs. The conflicts in this book helped me see things from a different perspective. Pretty much anyone can relate to the characters in this book.

    Is Their Love Wrong?

    He was a handsome Hebrew slave. His family betrothed him to his cousin, whom he did not love, Talia. His father was hateful. His best friend, Avi, was the respected son of the clan leader, Rimon. His faith seemed only to bring him despair. He believed Adonai, God, could not hear his cries. There was only one thing that made him think life was worth living. Her. She was a beautiful half Syrian/Egyptian maid. She was to be the concubine of wealthy Egyptian In-hop-tep, whom she did not love. Her mistress was hateful. Her best friend, Shepset, was the loved temple dancer. Her religion was not doing any good for her. The gods seemed to not hear her cries of sorrow, of not wishing to be the mother of In-hop-tep's child. But one thing brought her hope; the handsome Hebrew slave, who worked in the household of In-hop-tep. When Jesse and Jennat met, trouble was the only thing that came upon them. But when Moses led the slaves out of Egypt, Jennat went with them. And still, only trouble came upon her and Jesse. Jesse's desires for Jennat were wrong; she was not one of them, and he was all ready betrothed. But love can conquer all, right? Jennat had thrown away her idols and worshiped his God. But will Talia's jealousy come between them? Will their different life styles, religions and origins pull them apart? Jesse must make the choice between his new faith in Adonai, along with his people's wills, and his love for Jennat and what his heart yearns for. The two teens must battle together for what God wishes for them and for what they believe in. This is a great book, one that every teen should read.
