Publisher's Description

Four hundred years in slavery, the Hebrew people await deliverance. . . .
And while it is still dark, God is at work.
 
Jochebed’s entire life has been a faith journey as she seeks her mother’s God. The daughter of a Hebrew slave and master basket weaver, Jochebed knows the stories of her ancestors but wonders if the Lord cares how they suffer under the hand of Pharaoh Ramses. . .and if the promised deliverance will ever really come.
              
Ramses, warned of Egypt’s destruction, vows to do whatever is necessary to protect his two great loves, Egypt and Nefertari, unaware that satisfying one will sacrifice the other.
Shiphrah, the half-Egyptian midwife tasked to kill Hebrew male infants, yearns for a place to belong and remembers childhood stories of a merciful God.
              
Doubts are a constant companion to Jochebed, but her foundation of faith leads her to defy the most powerful man in the world in a deadly race to save her son and, ultimately, God’s chosen people.  Two women, each following the dangerous path God has set before them—this is their story.

Author Bio

Yes, Texie is her legal name and no, she's not a Texan. North Carolina born and bred, she holds Masters' Degrees in Religious Education and School Counseling. Although Texie Susan has served as a teacher, chaplain intern, and church drama director, her favorite calling is being a mother. As Texie Susan taught her children of the Lord and Savior, she became aware of the incredible influence mothers have and of the rippling effect of their words for future generations. Intrigued by who and what shaped the great leaders of the Bible, she began to write the stories of unknown mothers in Biblical times. She and her husband are empty-nesters missing their two young adult children who live on opposite sides of the country. Since they all love to travel, she's thankful they are on the same continent.

Editorial Reviews

"Texie Susan Gregory will capture your heart with her magnificent ability to tell a compelling story and bring biblical characters to life in this fascinating saga." 
—Jane Carter Handly, consultant, professional Speaker, and author of Getting Unstuck  and  Why Women Worry and How to Stop

"Some Bible stories become so familiar that I often forget they involved real men and women, real families, real moms like me. Slender Reeds drew me into the heartbreaking lives of women who struggled to hold onto God’s promises while under the oppression of Egyptian slavery and the desperate mother who would place her infant in a basket not knowing if it would be a cradle or a coffin. After reading Texie Susan Gregory’s beautiful debut novel, I will never read the story of Moses in the same way again."
—Jeanette Hanscome, Author of Suddenly Single Mom: 52 Messages of Hope, Grace, and Promise.


A Read You Will Long Remember 
You will never look at the life of Moses in the same way after meeting his mother and grandmother in this masterful debut novel, Slender Reeds. The weaving together of the complex characters, rich setting, and intriguing plot will carry you to an unfamiliar time and place where this unforgettable story unfolds. You will catch glimpses of yourself and those you love in these timeless characters, and you will benefit from the memorable journey you take with them. Most important, you will be inspired to trust God for yourself and for your family like never before.
–Judy Gordon Morrow, author of The Listening Heart: Hearing God in Prayer

Susan Gregory is a dedicated writer and researcher you can trust.
–Gayle Roper, award-winning author

Gregory vividly paints a picture of the many perspectives that surround the story of Moses being drawn from the bulrushes. Gregory’s novel is a fine introduction to two lesser known, though extremely important, female characters in the Hebrew Bible.

"Gregory’s retelling of the birth of Moses reminds readers that God’s plan to fulfill His promises depends on His people’s obedience even in the darkest of times."
