Summary

"You will be called Anippe, daughter of the Nile. Do you like it?" Without waiting for a reply, she pulls me into her squishy, round tummy for a hug. I'm trying not to cry. Pharaoh's daughters don't cry. When we make our way down the tiled hall, I try to stop at ummi Kiya's chamber. I know her spirit has flown, yet I long for one more moment. Amenia pushes me past so I keep walking and don't look back. Like the waters of the Nile, I will flow.

Anippe has grown up in the shadows of Egypt's good god Pharaoh, aware that Anubis, god of the afterlife, may take her or her siblings at any moment. She watched him snatch her mother and infant brother during childbirth, a moment that awakened in her a terrible dread of ever bearing a child. Now she is to be become the bride of Sebak, a kind but quick-tempered Captain of Pharaoh Tut's army. In order to provide Sebak the heir he deserves yet protect herself from the underworld gods, Anippe must launch a series of deceptions, even involving the Hebrew midwives - women ordered by Tut to drown the sons of their own people in the Nile.

When she finds a baby floating in a basket on the great river, Anippe believes Egypt's gods have answered her pleas, entrenching her more deeply in deception and placing her and her son, Mehy, whom handmaiden Miriam calls Moses, in mortal danger. As bloodshed and savage politics shift the balance of power in Egypt, the gods reveal their fickle natures, and Anippe wonders if her son, a boy of Hebrew blood, could one day become king. Or does the god of her Hebrew servants, the one they call El Shaddai, have a different plan - for them all?

Sooo good, but then...brick wall

Would you listen to The Pharaoh's Daughter CA again? Why?

YES! It is addictive, intelligently written, and I enjoyed it very much.

Any additional comments?

The thing I did not like, is that there is a series of books here but this appears to be the only one available in audiobook format. For all I can tell, the continuing story simply is not available to listen to, and neither the publisher nor the author have answered my queries on the subject, as of yet. I hate it when I get sucked into a good book and then find the rest of the series inaccessible.

Best Christian fiction I have listened to

What made the experience of listening to The Pharaoh's Daughter CA the most enjoyable?

The depth of this story is amazing and would not be possible without the length to develop ideas. I love a long story where I can live in that world for an extended time.

Which scene was your favorite?

The love story between a Jewish man and the Pharaoh's daughter at the end of the book.

Who was the most memorable character of The Pharaoh's Daughter CA and why?

The Pharaoh's daughter because her life and all of it's facets were reveled on her faith journey.

Highly recommended

If you like historical novels set during Biblical times surrounding the lives of Biblical persons, you will enjoy this intreagueing story. I thank the author for her masterful way of building realistic situations that have universal application. I was blessed, entertained, and challenged to apply the ways of faith.

Good Story

I am only disappointed with the narrators accent for the Hebrews. To me it sounds like German Baby Talk and made the Hebrews sound ignorant.

Mesu, Thank you for a very good story and all your research.

I felt as if I lived among the Hebrews....

I couldn’t stop listening. The story and history were so fascinating. It’s fresh look at a story we all knew as children. The narration was exceptionally good and just added to the overall experience.

I am looking forward to the second book, Miriam being added to the Audible offerings. I can’t wait.

slow start, strong finish. fascinating

a inspiring story of faith, a detailed history lesson, and an intricate plot. Robin Miles, as usual, superbly draws in the reader so that multiple characters are distinct

Very much worth listening to.

Very good book, though it took me a while to get into it. It was hard for me to follow because all of the Egyptian names sounded very similar and there were so many names for the same person. Also, the narrator’s interpretation of the Hebrew voices was annoying. She sounded more German than Jewish to me.

Wonderful insight into the story of Moses.

Mesu Andrew's did a fantastic job of making Moses and the characters in the Bible into living, loving human beings. The insights into the ways of the time and culture is very helpful to grasp an understanding of what the Bible tells us. This story is well written. I really like the authors notes at the end. I can't wait for the next book in this series to come out!
