4.5 Stars

I very much enjoyed reading Mesu Andrews' Pharaoh's Daughter, which told the story of the woman who found Moses. The author brought the culture of the time and Ancient Egypt to life and the characters, history, and story line held my interest. I was also very happy that the story stayed true to Old Testament Biblical principles even though it is a fiction novel. The only negative for me was it took a bit to get the characters straight. The beginning is a bit monotonous with all of the characters, but the chart at the front of the book helped keep the characters in order.

As for the cover, it is absolutely beautiful. I love everything about it: the font, the woman on the cover, but especially the photo of Egypt morphed into the background. The next book in the series, Miriam, has a very similar and beautiful cover.

I really did enjoy this book. The story line and characters held my interest, but the beginning was a bit slow. So, I am giving this 4.5 out of 5 stars for an enjoyable Biblical fiction novel.
