This is a nice take on Moses and his sister Miriam. We get to see how Moses might have thought during his early years and what Miriam was doing at this time also. This story goes to the time when Moses has to go into exile and Miriam must avoid Ramses. I look forward to reading the next segment. This part expands on what we know from the bible. It is a good historical fiction. I received this ebook from ebooksforreview for a fair and honest opinion.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review. This made me think about the story of Moses in a totally different way. I never thought about looking at it from Moses birth family’s view. Miriam, Moses biological sister, lives near the palace where Moses is being raised. She is always in trouble for spying on her brother. No one understands why she is so obsessed with knowing what is going on in Moses’ life. Her family just wants her to get married and forget Moses. Moses is caught up in getting into minor trouble with the prince of Egypt, Ramses, and his cousin, Pentu. The pharaoh decides the young men need to grow up and have responsibility. He chooses women for them to marry and assigns them royal duties. It is discovered that another city is going to attack the kingdom. The slaves, including Miriam’s good friend, are recruited to help protect it. Because of Miriam’s worry for her friend and her brother, she goes to the palace to see if she can help in any way. Miriam and Moses meet in the heat of the battle. Will Miriam admit to Moses who she is? Will they all escape the battle safely? An excellent book, very strong characters, an engaging story line. I would recommend for readers of all ages.

Bondage was a refreshingly different version of the Moses story we all know. There are a lot of aspects of the Moses story in the Bible that are not accessible to readers because of the mighty miracles that occurred. It is hard for the reader to relate to because we don't see the same type of miracles that happened then. In Bondage, Moore pens a story through which the reader can easily imagine how the character might feel, even though it was hundreds of years ago. This novel beautifully suggested what it was like for Miriam to live life knowing her true brother was raised as a royal in Egypt. We also got a glimpse into the life of Bithia, who drew Moses from the Nile. Though people were separated by class and culture, Moore illustrates throughout the story how similar we all are at the core. Such a refreshing and meaningful read. I was left wanting more!

I'm a huge fan of Heather Moore, but her biblical fiction is my absolute favorite. I loved this book and looked for every opportunity to read, ignoring my children and my own writing deadlines. Moses and Miriam's stories came alive for me and I can hardly wait for the next book in the series.

Bondage is yet another fabulous read but HB Moore. I thoroughly enjoyed her imagination of how Moses and his family lived. I loved everything about this book, especially Mariam, Moses's sister. I cannot wait to read book 2 of the Moses Chronicles series. Wonderful read! 5+ stars

Most of us are familiar with the Bible story of baby Moses who was found floating down the river by Pharaoh’s daughter. H. B. Moore in her recent novel The Moses Chronicles Volume 1 Bondage explores the story of Moses as a young adult. With meticulous historical research and captivating narrative, H. B. Moore creates an authentic and compelling picture of what life may have been like for Moses living a privileged life among the pharaohs of Egypt. Like many of Moore’s historical novels, Bondage quickly draws us into an absorbing story that introduces us to strong, believable characters and stories. I like how Moore cleverly contrasted Moses’s experiences throughout the novel with his siblings Miriam and Aaron who live as Hebrew slaves.  While much of the story line is fictional, Moore does an exceptional job of recreating the intense drama and feelings that must have existed between the Egyptians and their Hebrew slaves. She captured well the feelings of fear and hopeless that slaves may have felt toward their masters, and the indifference and careless of the Egyptians toward their slaves. I loved Miriam, I felt for Moses, and I look forward to reading futures volumes of The Moses Chronicles. H. B. Moore has delivered a great story that both entertained me and helped me appreciate Moses for the complicated person he was. H. B. Moore gave me a complimentary copy of The Moses Chronicles Volume 1 Bondage by H. B. Moore for my candid review.
