But when she becomes a young woman, Zipporah's destiny changes forever. While drawing water at a well one day, she meets a handsome young man, a stranger. Like her, he is an outsider, a foreigner. His name is Moses. A Hebrew raised in the house of the Pharaoh, Moses is a fugitive, forced to flee his homeland of Egypt after murdering one of the Pharaoh's cruel overseers. Zipporah knows almost immediately that this man will be the husband and partner she never thought she would have.
At first Moses wants nothing more than a peaceful life with the Midianites. But Zipporah refuses to let Moses forget his past or turn away from what she believes to be his true destiny. Although he is the love of her life and the father of her children, Zipporah won't marry Moses until he agrees to return to Egypt to confront Pharaoh and free his people. When God reveals himself to Moses in the burning bush, his words echo Zipporah's, and Moses returns to Egypt with Zipporah by his side.
A woman ahead of her time, Zipporah leaps from the pages of this remarkable novel. Bold, independent, and a true survivor, she is a captivating heroine, and her world of deserts, temples, and ancient wonders is a fitting backdrop to an epic tale.

I am a collector of books and stories about women of the Bible. I enjoy them immensely, and try to envision what their lives would be like day to day, and how I would have managed and survived in their place. I also look for what I can learn from their lives and experiences.
I understand the idea of author’s license and recognize how it fills a story with life, color and perspective. What I don’t understand is the killing of the two sons of Moses and Zipporah! Their lineage is listed in great detail numerous times in scripture. They lived, and in my opinion, it was a poor choice to tell the story any other way.
I don’t know how long Zipporah lived, but I would like to envision her enjoying her grandchildren and great grandchildren, rather than as a hateful, bitter and grieving mother.
This book is not the story of Zipporah, wife of Moses. It is simply poor fiction trying to be be based on a true story.
I want my money back.

Outstanding telling of Moses!!!
This book speaks of the woman behind the man. It speaks of her qualities, her strengths and her weaknesses . It shows that she was real. She was a daughter, sister, woman, wife and mother. Truly an example for females even in this modern day!!
