The Hebrews call me prophetess, the Egyptians a seer.
But I am neither. I am simply a watcher of Israel
and the messenger of El Shaddai.
When He speaks to me in dreams, I interpret. When He whispers a melody, I sing.

At eighty-six, Miriam had devoted her entire life to loving El Shaddai and serving His people as both midwife and messenger. Yet when her brother Moses returns to Egypt from exile, he brings a disruptive message. God has a new name – Yahweh – and has declared a radical deliverance for the Israelites.

Miriam and her beloved family face an impossible choice: cling to familiar bondage or embrace uncharted freedom at an unimaginable cost. Even if the Hebrews survive the plagues set to turn the Nile to blood and unleash a maelstrom of frogs and locusts, can they weather the resulting fury of the Pharaoh?

Enter an exotic land where a cruel Pharaoh reigns, pagan priests wield black arts, and the Israelites cry out to a God they only think they know.

Re: Miriam

I have known many Miriam's in my life. Since I am Jewish it
was very interesting to encounter these women. My mother was a
selfless, devoted mother who was determined to do as much as
possible in her lifetime even though she lived during the
depression without a father.

This is very interesting to me I enjoyed reading this

Yep, I know many ladies that are very spry for their age. I
met most of them through the world of weaving and other
fiber arts. They are use to working hard with their hands
and also being creative. They often have other lives - a
pilot, an archeobotanist, etc.

A long time ago, I knew a woman in Roswell, NM, who was the
manager of a health food store at 86. She was also the gold
medalist in swimming in the Senior Olympics for several years
running. She taught yoga classes as well. I was in my twenties
and remember wishing I had half her energy. I could barely
keep up with her but learned a lot for the effort.

I did know one, my grandmother. She died when my first daughter was just a baby. Granny in her heyday could out walk anyone and could jump up in my brothers jeep better than I could. She was a hoot.

My mother-in-law is a Miriam! She will be 86 this
August, but she looks and acts at least 20 years younger.
She gets out and about with her friends all the time and
travels quite a bit, as well. She hates to be stuck at
home. Also like Miriam, she is very strong in her faith
and definitely someone to be admired. My own mother has
passed away, but I am very blessed to have such a Godly,
loving, gracious, and spunky mother-in-law!

My mother is a Miriam, working with children since her conversion when
I was a child. She's 86 now and runs circles around me, although not as
fast as she once did. Her mind isn't as crisp as Miriam, but she tries her
best to serve and still sends out greeting cards -- paper, not electronic -
- for everyone in her church. Birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, even
the first visit to her church is noted by a handwritten card.

How wonderful to read about an 86 year old dancer.
(
Gloria Zimmer 10:07am March 19, 2016)

How wonderful - there are many Miriams at our church and I appreciate them all!
Thanks.

My mother is a Miriam. She was always the life of the party and loved to entertain and dance.
(
Beatrice Pierre 12:05pm March 19, 2016)

My Mother was my Miriam.She lived a full life and passed away at the age of 102 years old
(

My mother was a Miriam. She rose above many challenges in her life - 3 miscarriages before I was born, married to a double amputee who lost his legs on Anzio Beach, and successfully fighting cancer twice (unfortunately she lost the third battle).
(
Nancy Marcho 2:22pm March 19, 2016)

No I don't know anyone with the name Miriam. It is a lovely name.
(

My grandma is a Miriam. She is almost 90 and acts the same
as she did when I was little.
(

The condo I live in has a lot of retirees and they are all inspiring and show me that age is just a number and they are always living life to its fullest.

Also wanted let you know that Prince of Egypt was not Disney, it was DreamWorks animation.

My grandmother was a Miriam! She was so full of life and
spunk! Nothing EVER got her down. She always told me she
would live to be at least 100, but sadly she left us as 57
after a massive heart attack. I miss her greatly every
single day...
(
Lacey Burd 7:50am March 20, 2016)

My mother is a Miriam, always upbeat and positive.
(

My Great Grandmother was a Miriam, she taught me to belly
dance. I miss her very much.
(
Babbette Clark 12:06pm March 21, 2016)

I don't know any Miriams yet
(

I'mlucky enough to know many Miriam's, one in particular stands out in my mind. While Judy is nowhere near the age of 86 (I'm guessing that she's in her mid-60's), she has that same kind of "Miriam" mindset, and I love her dearly for it!
(
Lynn Rettig 3:26pm March 21, 2016)

I find myself very lucky to say that the Miriam I know is my mother. She is so
full of love, and so selfless. She is always giving to others, myself included.
(

My aunt is Miriam. She is a special character. There is no
one like her. She is a survivor of ovarian cancer (30
years!) I am interested in reading your book.
(

I know some ladies in my church that I would consider to be Miriam. These elderly ladies are the backbone of the church and seem to work circles around most of us. I am amazed by their energy.
(
Anna Speed 11:55am March 22, 2016)

My grandma was a Miriam. I am not that is for sure!
(

When I was a child I was taugt ballet and modern dance by Toni Intravaia.
Now, in her 90s, she continues to edit the Sacred Dance Guild Journal and
to teach dance.

lol, my name is Melody and people have been whispering and shouting my name all my life! And yes, like many before me, I have had a Miriam in my life. Not for some time, as she passed some time ago, but I have some very fond memories of family times together. This sounds like a very entertaining novel and I welcome the chance to win it and reflect upon those days gone by with my Aunt Miriam and Uncle Curry. Thank you.
(
Melody Kaufman 9:03pm March 22, 2016)

My Aunt Mary was my Miriam. She was wonderful, and so helpful. We miss her.
