This was going to be the place where her family could settle down and grasp the things that was right in front of them, a place they would call home. An old farmhouse sitting on top of hill, called to them with so many possibilities. Looking forward to welcoming her fourth child into her family, she had many plans of making this new home a place of sanctuary for her family. Roots and Sky tells of the first year of life spent at Maplehurst thru the trials and triumphs for the family. It starts with the September they moved thru to the next august. We get a glimpse into a life and struggles of a mother and wife setting roots down and learning to branch her limbs out to make friends in a very different area than what she was raised in.

The Prophetess (Deborah's Story)
by Jill Eileen Smith
Deborah's life was touched with tragedy when her father and brothers was slaughtered by the enemies of the nation of Israel. In this very dark time period of her life, she is called to lead God's people back to him. Deborah never asked to be the one to lead her people or to be the one sitting as a judge for them. As she sees visions with a voice she feels compelled to be there for them. Will her family ever be able to see that the work she is doing will lead them to the freedom they are longing for. Will her people trust her to hear the word from God calling them to turn from the idols they have set up.
Another beautifully written story about a very strong woman in the bible, that is mentioned as a judge of the nation Israel. It shows that God not only chose men to do his will, but also a woman who was chosen to do a very big job in a very hard time period. Jill Eileen Smith artfully crafts a story out of a small account in the bible with the research she has done of that time period.

by Mesu Andrews
The second novel in the A Treasures of the Nile series by Mesu Andrews brings us to many years after Moses exile from Egypt. We find Miriam taking care of her elderly parents and earning a meager living as a healer of her people. The oppression that has grown heavier on the Hebrews has caused so much struggles for God's people that so many have wandered away from EL Shaddai. When her younger brother comes back from the wilderness with a message of deliverance for God's people. This message leaves Miriam and her family reeling with the news that they may be able to see freedom. As each of the plagues hit Egypt the Hebrews struggle with seeing the love that EL Shaddai is trying to show them. Will they see the hope that is in front of them and place their trust in Moses as he fights to lead them from slavery to freedom.
Mesu Andrews delves into another bible story and brings it to life right before our eyes. Her way with writing a biblical based novel truly will take you by the arm and you will not want to put the book down till you finish it. Can't wait till the next novel comes out, would love to know what she will bring to light in the bible stories I have heard from a child up.
