Publisher's Summary

Bezalel is a Hebrew slave to Ramses II. An artisan of the highest order, Ramses has kept him in the palace even when all other Israelites have been banned. Bezalel blames El Shaddai for isolating him from his people.

When Moses and Aaron appear one summer, and El Shaddai shakes Egypt to its core, Bezalel must reexamine his anger.

Over the course of the next year, Bezalel's life becomes intertwined with those of an Egyptian child-slave, the captain of the guard, and especially a beautiful young concubine.

When spring arrives, all of them escape with the young nation of Israel. But that's only the beginning.

Simply Beautiful!

I got this book on a whim halfway expecting to be disappointed. Boy, was I wrong! You know the old saying, "Don't judge a book by its cover"? That applies doubly with this title.

Not only was the behind the scenes look into life for the 12 tribes - in captivity - insightful ...but the tenderness of God's love for His children was communicated so beautifully.

What an amazing book!

The Shadow of Sinai

Would you consider the audio edition of In the Shadow of Sinai to be better than the print version?

Didn't read the print version.

What did you like best about this story?

I always knew Egyptians following the Israelites into the wilderness, but this made that believe so much more real.

What about Daniel Koehn’s performance did you like?

Excellent!!!!!!

Who was the most memorable character of In the Shadow of Sinai and why?

Amos

Excellent Historical Fictional

only problem was the fact of Children of Israel wandered in the wilderness for 40 years, not just a few years. Love the way the book brings this time honored account in the Old Testament in a more personal way for this fictional family.

Ok

Would you try another book from Carole Towriss and/or Daniel Koehn?

Perhaps

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

I am used to Lynne Austin books

Would you be willing to try another one of Daniel Koehn’s performances?

depends on the book

Could you see In the Shadow of Sinai being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

no

Any additional comments?

The story telling I am comparing to Lynne Austins books. The story is a good story with not enough biblical account for my tastes. I like this type of book but prefer it to follow the bible.
