Publisher's Summary

The sacred cat of Bubastes has accidentally been slain; now young Chebron must pay for the offense with his own life, as this is the law of the Pagans in Egypt, 1250 BC. Chebron, the son of a high Egyptian priest, flees for his life taking his sister Mysa, one of the household slaves, Amuba, and several companions with him. They escape through closely guarded Egyptian exits only to find themselves in unfamiliar and dangerous lands inhabited by a very different culture of people. Along the way, the roving band of refugees encounters and befriends a Hebrew girl, who exposes them to very strange ideas including the worship of "one true God". This arduous journey through time, customs and religion provides an adventurous and accurate insight into the ancient people of Egyptian history.

Hard to Understand

This rendition was hard to listen to. We bought a Jim Hodges narration instead. Much better.

Avid reader

This is a good book. A long book with a nice ending. Well worth listening to. I drive up and down the M1 (UK) to Warrington each week and listen to a lot of books from Audible. Some good, some bad, but this made the journey quite short and interesting. I hope you enjoy it too!
