Slender Reeds by Texie Susan Gregory

This was the first book I have read from this author.  I hope it won't be the last.  It was really good.  I have to admit, that I have not read any Biblical fiction until reading this.  Wasn't sure how it would flow, but really enjoyed it.  I have read the Bible many times over but never really thought about how some of the Biblical characters actually felt and what they experienced on a more personal level.

This book, although a work of fiction, appears to be very well researched as far as customs, facts and actual events.   The story unfolded in such a way that you really felt like you knew them and their thoughts, fears and concerns were brought across very well.

As Jochebed begins to fear for the life of her son and takes actions to save him, you can feel her feelings and understand that she was a mother then with the same emotions as a mother in today's world.

This book brought across many Christian attributes of trust, both in God and your fellow man, love of family and friends and of staying true to God, regardless of the trials and persecutions that exist in life.

I highly recommend this book.  It gave great insights to a time period we may not have had a way to understand otherwise.

Disclosure:  I was given a copy of this book from the publisher, Barbour books, for my honest review which I have given.
