Overview

A displaced soldier anticipates only empty tomorrows. A young widow knows nothing but yesterdays filled with abuse and neglect. A spy sees only a today he can manipulate to gain the power he craves. Will they allow Yahweh to give them what they need?

Kamose, once Egypt's most trusted soldier, no longer has a country to serve or king to protect. Moses insists God has a plan for him, but Kamose is not so sure. Tirzah's cruel husband died shortly after they left Egypt. She escaped his brutality, but now she's alone, and once they reach their new land, how will she survive? Gaddiel, Tirzah's brother-in-law, is chosen as one of the twelve spies sent to scout out Canaan. He's supposed to go in, get information and come back, but all he really wants is to bring down Joshua.

By the Waters of Kadesh continues the story begun in Carole Towriss's previous book, In the Shadow of Sinai (to read that review, click HERE). If you read and liked that first in the series, you're going to love this one. I know I did. Remember Kahmose, Pharaoh's guard who escaped with the Jews from Egypt? In this book, he gets to be the hero. Tirzah, the heroine, is the widow of a man who abused her viciously. The man's brothers, who stand to "inherit" her as a wife, are just as cruel. She can see no hope in her future. Kahmose is a dedicated soldier who can see no hope in his future either. Most of the Jews eye him with suspicion and disdain. His only friends are Bazalel and Mari. Then he begins to develop a friendship with Karen and Naomi, two little girls, daughters of Tirzah. One of Tirzah's brothers-in-law is selected with eleven others to spy out the land of Canaan. Kahmose becomes their trainer in the arts of soldiering and spying. Things begin to come to a boil as the twelve go into the land. You have to buy the book to find out what happens. Trust me, you won't be sorry!
