Journey by Angela Hunt

His younger brother will be greater than he…

With those words, Menashe's dreams collapse. As Yosef's eldest son, his position had seemed secure. But now Efrayim—bold, charming Efrayim, who's everything Menashe is not—is taking his place. With their people. With the pharaoh. With Jendayi, the slave Menashe loves.

Efrayim, meanwhile, sees his dreams confirmed. Surely it's his destiny to unite the Egyptians and Hebrews. To marry a princess and achieve splendor surpassing that of his brother.

Then Menashe's dreams take a dangerous twist as he becomes obsessed with returning the Hebrews to their homeland. If he succeeds, he'll restore their heritage. If he fails…he could destroy them all.

Ancient Egypt comes alive. Using the Bible as her foundation, Angela Hunt takes a few verses from Genesis, Joshua, and Nahum and fills in gaps with a believable work of fiction. Her ability to weave a mountain of research into an enjoyable story never ceases to amaze me. This is the third in Legends of the Ancient River trilogy. It can be read and enjoyed without first reading the other two (Dreamers and Brothers). This narrative description of a love triangle between Menashe and Efrayim, sons of Joseph, grandsons of Israel--and Jendayi, a musician slave to Pharaoh contains many twists and turns along with a heap of palace politics. All ends are neatly tied up at the end, including the solution for Joseph and Tuya. I learned about Ancient Egypt's embalming process and the funeral trip to bury Israel that took place from Egypt to the land of Goshen. It was enlightening to compare the refined culture of the Egyptians with less sophisticated, sheep and goat herding Hebrews. Equally fascinating is the comparison of the many Egyptian gods to El Shaddai. I enjoyed the game of Hounds and Jackals. I love this quote from the book: "I do not understand everything God is enough to know He has a purpose for me" (322). Although anyone can read and enjoy this historical romance novel, I think that those interested in the Bible will enjoy it the most. Discussion questions in the back of the book would make for an interesting group analysis.

This is a great book for lovers of the Old Testament. It tells of love, war, and struggle. Walk back through time and learn the story of Ephraim and Manesseh, Joseph's two sons.
