Overview

As a child, Miryam foretells the birth of a leader who will save their
people from oppression--a vision so vivid that she dedicates her life
to seeing it fulfilled in her brother, Moses. But after many years,
she wonders in the deepest confines of her heart if her sacrifices
mean anything, if her calling is real.

Tzipporah, a desert shepherdess who knows nothing of her husband's divine purpose, suffers as he is torn from her by a strange god, a foreign people, and an
unforgiving sister. In her heart, she harbors terrible secrets that
haunt the love she shares with Moses and threaten her tenuous peace
with Miryam.

Together, Miryam and Tzipporah weave a narrative that
gives voice to the women of Exodus--their lives, their community, and
ultimately, their sisterhood.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Continuing her examination of biblical women, the sophomore effort from Kohn (The Gilded Chamber: A Novel of Queen Esther) is a scrupulously researched but disappointing fictional account of the life of Moses, as told by his sister and his wife. At the novel's outset, Moses' sister Miryam has a divine revelation: the voice of God tells her "of a mission far greater than that of daughter, wife, or mother" and leaves Miryam with a vision of her unborn brother, "another Yoseph." Devoting herself to God's prophecy, Miryam delivers Moses to the Pharaoh's daughter Istnofret, in whom she finds a kindred spirit, willing to hire Moses' mother as his wetnurse. Sacrificing her own happiness, Miryam watches Moses grow up, find glory as Pharaoh's most beloved general and then fall from grace when his passion for justice leads him to murder. As Moses flees Egypt, his future wife, Tzipporah, takes over narration duties, chronicling the arrival of a strange Israelite among her shepherding clan and the gradual revelation of his identity, his destiny and his god. The story shines when describing Tzipporah and her clan or the wrathful deeds of Yahweh, but tends to focus too narrowly on familiar details of Moses' life. Kohn's women, especially Miryam, are fixated on Moses to a self-effacing degree, reducing them to fleshed-out vehicles for the biblical tale, rather than characters in their own right. (Mar.)
