Publisher's Summary

Someone found him in a laundry basket at the Quick Wash, wrapped in a towel, a few hours old and close to death. They called him "Baby Moses" when they shared his story on the ten o'clock news.

It all happened before I was born, and by the time I met Moses and my mom told me all about him, the story was old news, and nobody wanted anything to do with him. People love babies, even sick babies. Even crack babies. But babies grow up to be kids, and kids grow up to be teenagers. Nobody wants a messed up teenager.

And Moses was messed up. Moses was a law unto himself. But he was also strange and exotic and beautiful. To be with him would change my life in ways I could never have imagined. Maybe I should have stayed away. Maybe I should have listened. My mother warned me. Even Moses warned me. But I didn't stay away.

    "One of the BEST"

    You know, I was so excited to find this was being released in audio form. I had read it when it first came out and thought it to be such brilliant writing. The depth and substance of the characters, the creative and superb storyline, and the powerful way that Ms Harmon has of weaving love, tragedy, humor, broken-ness and redemption throughout. That being said, it just HAD to be heard as well. And, boy howdy, I was not disappointed. The two narrators (JD Jackson/Moses and Tavia Gilbert/Geoergia) were excellent in their interpretation of the writing adding further to the veracity of the story. I love to listen to a book I've read and this one has got to be among my all time favorites. I heard things I did not read or see; I felt things on a much more primal level; and the connection to both Moses and Georgia (and always Eli) was one forged on an emotional anvil. So, why go any further with the review? It's by far and away a lovely opportunity to visit this book for the first time or to connect at the different and deeper levels after reading it. Don't miss it, please.

    "Hauntingly beautiful!"

    I could not stop listening to this book! It's sad yet hopeful, and totally addictive. The movie/book rating I would give it is PG-13 for strong language (without the F word) and implied sex. I would definitely recommend this book!!!

    "Exceptional story!"

    Ms. Harmon creates masterpieces when she writes.
    The narrators did an outstanding job bringing the characters to life. They are so well defined that for me they seemed flawless and very real. The goodness of these characters just make you fall in love with each one of them and hate their enemies. I laughed and cried. Oh boy..did I cry. I felt everything. I was addicted to listening. I'm overjoyed with this book. Only bad thing for me was that the story ended. I will read and listen again and again. This story was good for my heart and soul!

    Story
    "I really wanted to love this book ......"

    This is a novel. It is well written, well thought out, and very different. That being said I can appreciate the talent that went into writing of this story .... I did not like the vehicle that led to the HEA. I think it was because of the tragedy in the book which I will not give away its a spoiler. I know I am in the minority in not loving this book, but it just was not for me.

    "Love!"

    This is already my favorite book, but these narrators brought it to life in s way I couldn't have imagined. I used the audio version as a reread, prior to starting The Song of David. I'm just as excited to read Tag's story, and am thrilled that it will have the same narrators!

    "Just beautiful."

    This story is one of the most beautiful things I've ever encountered.
    The way Amy tells Moses and Georgia's tale leaves you aching and raw.
    Outstanding storytelling Amy. Absolutely loved it.

    Story
    "Good writing...weak chemistry b/w H&h"

    Amy Harmon's writing is always stellar. But, something was missing in The Law of Moses. The chemistry b/w Moses and Georgia wasn't there. I didn't feel any connection b/w them and I didn't FEEL for them. I so wanted to love this!!

    The narration was good. I especially loved the female narrator.

    Story
    "Deeply moving"

    It took me a long time to work out the attacker. A beautiful and evokative story, brilliantly written and well researched - I'm a horsewoman with an interest in psychology and my mother is a medium (I couldn't find fault with the plot), although based in Enland it doesn't qualify me for the rest.
    Well read by the narrators if I could give this to 10 stars I would.
