I listened to the sample of this book and thought it would be a great opportunity to learn more about Zipporah the wife of Moses. I was surprised to learn that this is not a biblical account of Zipporah's life at all. I was disappointed since I found it in the religion and inspiration category of Audible books.
This author depicts Zipporah as the adopted daughter of Jethro she is a stubborn and controlling woman that gives birth to both of Moses sons outside of marriage without shame. Jethro is a strong and wise leader in the bible but is depicted as a simpleton that drinks too much and allows his daughters too many liberties in him home for that time period. Be warned there are sex scenes which may appear slightly graphic for a Christian read but they are very tastefully depicted. If you like fiction then this is an ok read but if you are looking for a true accounting of Zipporah's life this listener suggest that you stick with the bibles account for now and continue your search for a true accounting of this amazing woman that no doubt had to endure many things being black and the wife of Moses.

This is one of those books where you're sorry they come to an end! The publisher's description provides a good summary of the story, and I was caught up in the daily life of the time of Moses. Old Testament characters were brought to life, and their humanity evoked empathy (and outrage!) as well as a renewed appreciation for what Moses accomplished. Zipporah is a wonderful protagonist, and Bernadette Dunne does justice to all the characters. I recommend this listen!
