MIRIAM'S SONG by Jill Eileen Smith, Reviewed by Nicole Cook #ReleaseDay #GIVEAWAY


Fans of biblical fiction will enjoy Jill Eileen Smith’s latest novel, Miriam’s Song, which focuses on the story of Moses primarily through his sister Miriam’s point of view. Since not much is known about Miriam, Jill Eileen Smith fills in the blanks with a compelling tale of the popular story from the Bible. Her writing always encourages me to dig deeper into the Bible. Even though readers are most likely familiar with the story of Moses either through Scripture and/or the portrayal of his life in movies, Jill Eileen Smith’s interpretation brings a new perspective to the story that is worth checking out. 

*I received a complimentary copy of this book from Revell and was not required to write a positive review. All opinions expressed are mine.

She has prayed for deliverance from Egypt.

But perhaps the greatest liberation happens within the heart.

From the very beginning, Miriam has lived in her younger brother's shadow. Thrust into the role of protective older sister before Moses was even born, she will grow up into a woman who not only keeps her family's secret but bears the burden of leading a new nation.

In her mind, she knows that she is serving both her God and her people. But in her heart, Miriam yearns for more. She longs to experience the privileges Moses has--to talk with God face-to-face. But when God finally does speak directly to her, the outcome is not at all what she expects.

With her impeccable research and keen eye for detail, bestselling author Jill Eileen Smith offers this epic novel to fill in the gaps in Miriam's story, following her from childhood to motherhood, obscurity to notoriety, and yearning to fulfillment as she learns that what God promises He provides--in His own perfect timing.
