Miriam: A Review

miriam

Takes courage to face one’s enemies and demand justice. Faith too. Miriam, the main character in the book, and title, has a very strong faith in God. Her brother, Moses, has both courage and faith. The book, Miriam, is book two in the Treasures of the Nile series. In this novel, Moses has grown up and been summoned by God to lead the Israelites out of Egypt, away from the horrible slavery they’ve endured for hundreds of years. Of course, Moses, wonders why him? Why did the Almighty have to choose him to perform such a huge task? God knew what he was doing.

Through Moses determination everyone is inspired to renew their faith or become a believer. Moses did some pretty harsh stuff, like plagues, and worse, having the firstborn son of every Egyptian and animal to die unless they followed careful instructions from the Lord above. What I was most impressed with was even some of the Egyptians wanted to be friends with the Hebrews and wanted to be saved too. Some were. Others in Miriam’s family found that they could love and care for others. Take Eleazar, for example. Talk about dual loyalty. He was a guard for the prince and a Hebrew too. In the end, he too, realizes that his loyalty is misplaced and he is stronger than he thinks. Moses does lead the Hebrews out of Egypt and even has them cross between two gigantic walls of water. Whoa. What a sight that must have been.

Once again, Mesu Andrews has done a fantastic job of presenting a great story! Her research is outstanding and I am looking forward to reading more.

Shh It’s Confidential

There’s a mystery to be solved and I want to try and solve it. You know the want ads, the post jobs that you might be interested in? Well, some of them say the name of their company and others don’t. They say Confidential. I guess they are afraid of who they are. Or maybe they don’t want us, the job seeker, to do background check on them. What weaklings.

I know, they are on a secret mission and don’t want everyone to know about it so they hide their company name for security reasons. No, wait, maybe they want us to be surprised when we do discover who they and live happily ever after. The emails they use for contacting them are useless. They don’t mention the business at all. Oh wait, we can look up the phone number they leave and hope its not a cell phone or unknown landline located in a far, far away land.

Just so you know, unknown potential employer, you make very hard for any job seeker to be feel confident about applying for work. I always pass you over, because I suspect you are a fraud, out to make outrageous promises of wealth and then steal money and go live on a deserted island somewhere. You can keep your hidden identity to yourself. Jos seekers like myself won’t give you the time of day. Now, let’s see there is a much better listing here for a legitimate company. Hmm.. where to send the resume.
