During the sojourn of Israel in Egypt (about 1652 - 1424 BCE) Avaris was the capital and largest city of the province of Goshen. This is the story of the departure of Israel, the last of the Hebrew (Hyksos) nations to leave Egypt, and of their leader, Moses the Prophet of God. This novel is classified fiction, but is based on historical and scriptural truth and may paint a more accurate picture of the Exodus than do traditional accounts.
Moses of Avaris is a story of brutal oppression and sweet deliverance, of deep despair and wonderful hope, of love found, enjoyed, violently torn away and then regained. It considers the question of whether one should "turn the other cheek" to those seeking to do us evil or retaliate with bitter vengeance upon the evil doers. It is also a story of political intrigue at the highest levels of the Egyptian monarchy. It is about two able and ambitious women seeking to assert themselves in a culture dominated by men. It is the tale of an innocent babe, condemned at birth to a watery grave but preserved by the power of God to be raised up as a prince and heir to a throne; who then rejects that crown, humbling himself before the divine presence and receiving a portion of power and authority such that would provoke the envy of all earthly rulers.
