Publisher's Description

"Fear is the most fertile ground for faith."
 

 "You will be called Anippe, daughter of the Nile. Do you like it?" Without waiting for a reply, she pulls me into her squishy, round tummy for a hug.
I’m trying not to cry. Pharaoh’s daughters don’t cry.
When we make our way down the tiled hall, I try to stop at ummi Kiya’s chamber. I know her spirit has flown yet I long for one more moment. Amenia pushes me past so I keep walking and don’t look back.
Like the waters of the Nile, I will flow.
 
Anippe has grown up in the shadows of Egypt’s good god Pharaoh, aware that Anubis, god of the afterlife, may take her or her siblings at any moment. She watched him snatch her mother and infant brother during childbirth, a moment which awakens in her a terrible dread of ever bearing a child. Now she is to be become the bride of Sebak, a kind but quick-tempered Captain of Pharaoh Tut’s army. In order to provide Sebak the heir he deserves and yet protect herself from the underworld gods, Anippe must launch a series of deceptions, even involving the Hebrew midwives—women ordered by Tut to drown the sons of their own people in the Nile.
     When she finds a baby floating in a basket on the great river, Anippe believes Egypt’s gods have answered her pleas, entrenching her more deeply in deception and placing her and her son Mehy, whom handmaiden Miriam calls Moses, in mortal danger.
  As bloodshed and savage politics shift the balance of power in Egypt, the gods reveal their fickle natures and Anippe wonders if her son, a boy of Hebrew blood, could one day become king. Or does the god of her Hebrew servants, the one they call El Shaddai, have a different plan—for them all?

    I thoroughly enjoyed Mesu Andrews' Pharaoh's Daughter. The author's careful research and attention to detail bring ancient Egypt to life. Mesu's interpretation and the story's plot pass the test of plausibility with flying colors. A chart of names and relationships at the front of the book helps readers keep characters straight. After finishing the book, I wanted to go back and read the Biblical account. If a work draws us to God and His Word, it has served its purpose well.

    I've always viewed Pharoah as the "evil" rulers. But Mesu Andrews has a way of making them into people who struggled, albeit differently, with the same struggles we face. It's a story that brings into light what went on in Pharoah's household. It was very well written and captivating.

    Anippe is the daughter of Pharaoh but has been given to his honored general, Horemheb, and his wife after Pharaohs wife dies in childbirth. Much loved by her new abbi and ummi, Anippe grows in beauty and grace. When Pharaoh dies and his kingdom is inherited by his son, King Tut, Horemheb decides Anippe should marry and gives her to his best captain, Sebak.

    Anippe is terrifiedterrified not of the gentle giant, Sebak, but that she will get pregnant. She watched her mother die in childbirth and does not want the same fate to come to her. Deceiving Sebak, she uses herbs to prevent pregnancy, although Sebak would love a son.

    Disaster strikes. King Tuts wife loses child after child in miscarriage and Tut is convinced by his other advisor, the dastardly Ay, that the reason is an imbalance in maat because the Hebrews have grown so numerous. Tut decrees that all newborn Hebrew boys be killed at birth. Grief-stricken at the edict, the Hebrew midwives refuse to fulfill King Tuts decree.

    Sebak knows that one of Anippes Hebrew friends wife is pregnant and thinks Anippe herself might be pregnant. He orders the Ramessid guards to fulfill the decree in the unskilled workers area onlyto leave the craftsmens village alone to save Mered and Puahs child. Then Sebak is sent off to war with the Hittites, still thinking Anippe pregnant, and Anippe is left as the Amira of Avaris. With Sebak gone, his edict about the craftsmens village will probably be disregarded.

    Mered and Puahs next door neighbors, Amram and Jochebed had a son soon after the decree of King Tut was given. They have managed to hide him so far, but now fear he will be discovered. They decide to build a baby ark, a reed basket made waterproof with tar and pitch and float him in the Nilehopefully, to drift downriver and be rescued. He is rescued, but not in a far off land. The basket has floated into the bathhouse of Anippe who has discovered she is not with child. Deciding to keep this child, whose skin color is close to hers, she begins to weave an elaborate deception with the aid of her sister, Ankhe, and Miriam, the babys sister.

    Mesu Andrews has taken the story of Moses and Pharaohs Daughter and fleshed it out with historically-drawn detailssupposing what might have been and how the rescue and subsequent upbringing may have occurred. You will fall in love with the characters, thrill with the dangers, and admire the Hebrews who lived daily in fear of their lives yet continued to honor El Shaddaithe true God. Come journey with Anippe and Mered and Miriam and Mehy on their adventure. Four stars.

    In my interview with her recently, Mesu told me her passion is to find women in the Old Testament that God felt important enough to mention.Whether He mentions them by name or not, she wanted to give them a story. In other books, she has written of Gomer and Dinah to name two.

    I asked her to tell me more about Mesu and her writing. She says she is an old fogie and wants people to take personal responsibility for their choicesthat when they do, God honors it. Therefore, she lets her characters reap the consequences of their decisions. In Pharaohs Daughter, Anippe makes the choice to overcome. This responsibility is very real to Mesu. Suffering from a chronic illness since 1997, she realized that staying in bed was not productive so she chose to persevere, live with the pain, and write.

    Mesu grew up in the middle of corn fields in Indiana and met her husband in third grade. They now have two grown daughters and six grandkids. She was a speaker until she was bedridden for six months and so turned to writing. They now live in Washington State where her husband is Dean at Multnomah Biblical Seminary.

    Asked what her readers might not know about her, she laughed and said she was bucked off a horse when she was six years old, but still enjoys an occasional horse ride. She persevered through difficulty and pain even at that early age!

    Next in her writing schedule is the story of Miriam, Moses sistera glimpse into the life and struggle of Gods first prophetess, a woman called to trust Him though she doesnt understand Him. I look forward to reading that book too! I so came to love Miriam in Pharaohs Daughter.

    Mesu Andrews in her new book, The Pharaohs Daughter Book One in the Treasures of the Nile series published by WaterBrook Press takes us back to Biblical times.

    From the Back Cover: Fear is the most fertile ground for faith.

    You will be called Anippe, daughter of the Nile. Do you like it? Without waiting for a reply, she pulls me into her squishy, round tummy for a hug.

    Im trying not to cry. Pharaohs daughters dont cry.

    When we make our way down the tiled hall, I try to stop at ummi Kiyas chamber. I know her spirit has flown yet I long for one more moment. Amenia pushes me past so I keep walking and dont look back.

    Like the waters of the Nile, I will flow.

    Anippe has grown up in the shadows of Egypts good god Pharaoh, aware that Anubis, god of the afterlife, may take her or her siblings at any moment. She watched him snatch her mother and infant brother during childbirth, a moment which awakens in her a terrible dread of ever bearing a child. Now she is to be become the bride of Sebak, a kind but quick-tempered Captain of Pharaoh Tuts army. In order to provide Sebak the heir he deserves and yet protect herself from the underworld gods, Anippe must launch a series of deceptions, even involving the Hebrew midwiveswomen ordered by Tut to drown the sons of their own people in the Nile.

    I have to admit that the most I knew of the Mother of Moses was the part from the movie The Ten Commandments. Horrifying, I know. The good news is after reading this book I know quite a lot more now. Thank you Mesu Andrews. It is obvious that Ms. Andrews not only has read her Bible but quite a number of history sources as well for which I am very grateful. Political intrigue in Biblical times! Just like any story associated with Moses this book is filled with action, danger, evil, treachery, and hatred. Ms. Andrews gives a spectacular job of showing what life what like in that time period and all the political maneuvering. In The Pharaohs Daughter Ms. Andrews has done a superb account of researching many different sources to give us Anippe and a cast of characters that most of us are probably not aware of. This is a well done adventure that will keep you flipping pages looking for what happens next.

    Anippe's story was a tough one to read for me. The beauty of the setting and story telling made me want to keep reading, but it was hard to see the deception that Anippe consistently did. However, I could relate to her prime reasoning for why she did it in almost every situation: fear. There was always some kind of fear motivating her choices or decisions.

    I also really loved how Mesu shares the importance of letting go of fear and having faith in El-Shaddai. God doesn't let Anippe live in a world of fear if she so desires it. I know it took me going through what was a hard story to read in realizing that many times I let fear dictate my actions.

    Once again I'm amazed at the political intrigue that Mesu can weave into a story! It's interesting to see how everything pans out based on certain connections between people of power or potential power. Some of the characters I didn't expect to do what they did in there lust for power.

    Overall, another insightful novel that is filled with political intrigue and faith in the Creator. Can't wait to read book two!

    *(Thank you Mesu Andrews for sending me a personal copy of this novel for my enjoyment. All thoughts expressed are my own and I was not required to write a positive review.)*
