Book Description:
Moses has always felt like an outsider in his powerful Egyptian family, even though his close relationship with Ramses, the prince of Egypt, and their cousin Pentu keeps him entwined in the dealings of royalty. But when their youthful antics get them in trouble, the Pharaoh decides it’s time for all three of them to grow up and own their respective responsibilities. Now betrothed to a woman he cares nothing for, Moses wonders where his life is headed.

Miriam, a Hebrew slave, lives with a secret she cannot share with anyone. And though it has been eighteen years since she saved her baby brother, she is constantly getting in trouble for spying on him. In a desperate attempt to control Miriam, her older brother, Aaron, and her father look to find her a husband, something Miriam has never been interested in—until Caleb, a young, handsome man, confesses his feelings for her and asks her father for her hand in marriage.

When Libya advances on Egypt, Moses and Miriam are suddenly thrown together as the Egyptian royals and soldiers flee. Hebrew slaves are forced to defend the kingdom, and Miriam and Caleb are enlisted under Moses’s direction. Moses quickly sees there is more to this downtrodden people than what he’s been taught. When he witnesses the atrocities enacted against the slaves, he realizes he must leave—he must find out who he really is.
A gripping account of the events that lead to Moses’s flight into the wilderness, The Moses Chronicles: Bondage will take you back to a rich period of history replete with scandal, strife, love, and hope as God prepares a prophet to lead His chosen people.


My Review
If I ever get the opportunity to read and review a book by Heather Moore I take it. I know that I will be reading a fantastic story that is well developed, impeccably researched, and will also have an engaging story that will be impossible to set down. 

This first book in the Moses Chronicles exactly fits my description above. If you think that it will be your typical story of Moses and the Ten Commandments, you would be wrong, and you probably have never read anything before that Heather has written. It always amazes me how Heather can take a story of a character that has been written previously, in this case a biblical character, and makes the story seem brand new. Bondage is the story of not only Moses, but his sister Miriam and his Egyptian mother Bithiah. I was thrilled to see this book written by the Point of View of Moses and two very incredibly strong women. Bondage has the perfect combination of action and romance. Each character from Moses, to Miriam, and even Ramses, are so well developed that you emotionally attach to them and become so vested in their stories.

Honestly, once I started reading Bondage I could not put it down. I came home from work and read while I exercised, ate my dinner, talked to my kids, talked on the phone...I'm talented that way! 
 The only problem I can see with this book is that the second book is not right here for me to read! I believe it should be coming out in the fall. This book receives 5 stars from me which I don't give out all that often, but it so richly deserves it. Give this book a chance, and you will be the one who will be enriched by reading such a wonderfully written story.

Heather B. Moore is the USA Today bestseller and award-winning author of more than a dozen historical novels which are set in Ancient Arabia and Mesoamerica. She is not old and doesn’t remember the time period, so Google has become a great friend. Although she has spent several years living in the Middle East, she prefers to forget the smells. Heather writes her historicals and thrillers under the pen name H.B. Moore. She also writes women’s fiction, romance, and inspirational non-fiction under Heather B. Moore, including The Newport Ladies Book Club, the Amazon bestselling anthology series A Timeless Romance Anthology, the Aliso Creek series, and the USA Today bestseller Heart of the Ocean.
Heather graduated from Brigham Young University with a major in Fashion Merchandising and minor in Business Management–which has absolutely nothing to do with writing novels. But at least she can balance a mean checkbook and color-coordinate her kids’ school clothes.
