A novel of Joseph in Egypt

When Joseph, the eleventh son of Jacob, is sold into bondage by his brothers, Egypt is a land in turmoil—its fortune determined by the unpredictable rains that either bring prosperity or leave the people in famine and starvation. But Joseph is no common slave. Imprisoned and forgotten by all but God, he interprets a dream that reveals the future and alters his destiny. Now with his privileged Egyptian-born wife, Asenath, at his side, Joseph’s transformation from the boy in the pit to the ruler of Egypt is nearly complete. But position and power cannot erase the bitterness he holds deep inside. When he suddenly comes face to face with the family that betrayed him, Joseph devises a plot to test his brothers’ true character. Yet even revenge may not fill the aching hole in Joseph’s heart, and the influence of a beautiful woman may be his only hope for redemption.

Comments: Loved this interpretation of Joseph's story. His has always been my favorite in the Old Testament. I flew through this book, it was so interesting how the author showed how Joseph was not untouched by Kemet. How Abraham's time in Kemet affected the religion there and ultimately his great grandson. The author ties everything into a nice little bow and makes the story come to life because it is cloaked in something that could be real. Great read. Super clean. Enlightening.
