Product Description

Product 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?

HASH(0xa012e564) out of 5 stars A New Perspective...Don't Miss IT!!! March 17 2015
By Jennifer C. Mcilwain - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Mesu Andrews has a gift of taking God's Word, historical fact and creative fiction to produce stories that draws readers' hearts and minds to transforming biblical truth. When I read her books, I am driven to search out the Scriptures for the truth she is portraying in them.
In her latest book, The Pharaoh's Daughter (book one in the Treasures of the Nile series), one of the overarching themes is this:
"Fear is the most fertile ground for faith."
Mesu tells the story of Moses through the eyes of Pharaoh's daughter and by doing so, she brings a brand new perspective to the biblical narrative. What I appreciate most about Mesu's writing is how she holds God's Word in high regard. Her artistic liberties do not in any way change or take away from the truth as it is revealed in Scripture, but makes readers think about how to apply God's truth to their current life and circumstances. I came away from The Pharaoh's Daughter with a renewed faith and understanding of the heart of God toward me as His own child in the midst of some of my own fears.

Mesu's books are rich in detail and character development. Her thorough research is evident in how she transports the reader to a different time and place. Her writing is hard to put down once started. You will be blessed by The Pharaoh's Daughter and by connecting with Mesu!

HASH(0xa012eab0) out of 5 stars A phenomenal story!! March 17 2015
By Kate - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
In the last couple of years, I have plunged head first into Biblical fiction. Years ago, there wasn't as big as a selection as there is today. A part of that growth is in part to Mesu Andrews' books. And what books they are!

Mesu Andrews has traveled around in the Old Testament from Dinah to Jezebel's Granddaughter. The range of research that she puts into her books is phenomenal and even though her work is Biblical fiction, she does her best to stay as true to the original story as presented in the Bible, but with added fiction to fill in and make the story more relateable and with a little more adventure.

I have always loved ancient Egypt. It was one of my favorite eras to study in history class. There is just so much there and it all hasn't been discovered yet, which was just proven this past week with some archeological digs going on. Mesu Andrews just brought her beautiful writing, to my favorite time and my goodness how they mesh!

I think it is safe to say, most people know the story of Moses, whether through Sunday school or Cecil B. Demil's classic that is a tradition in my house every Easter. We know Moses was raised in a palace and by Pharaoh's daughter. Mesu takes this story deeper and connects us more with a very thought out and possible timeline (one we may never know for certain, but this one was great!) and one that you didn't know where it would fully lead you after what is known.

I wasn't sure how I would feel reading about Anippe, when we are first really introduced to her, she comes off as a bit spoiled, which I can get being with her a princess, but as you get to know her through the constant shifting time of life, I grew to care for her as her character opened up. I applauded her for standing up for her sister, who in all honesty, got so many second chances from her. Anippe had a deep love for Ankhe, even with Ankhe's firmly planted bitterness. I was back and forth on my feelings for Anippe's sister. How she was treated was heartbreaking by all of those who should have been closest to her, but her response was harsh and at times cruel.

In comparison, Anippe faced her struggles with grace and she grew and learned from them. She had a deep love for her son, Mehy and in her way cared for his birth family. It was the connection that helped her to grow and be saved in so many ways. It opened her up to new possibilities.

It was also in this story, that we get to meet Miriam. We are introduced to her as a young girl among the rushes, as she watched after her baby brother to being a midwife in the skilled labor slave camp where she and her family lived. After reading these parts about her, I can't wait for Miriam's story! Miriam was a gentle soul who cared and loved all those around her. I can't wait see how Miriam's story is expanded on.

Mered was a wonderful character to read about. He has such love and dedication to his family, along with a strong friendship to Sebak, his master. Mered was honorable and he was valued for the work and dedication he offered. Despite everything that was going on and that he and his family were enslaved, he tried to keep positive for his family and those around him and also watching after to protect everyone.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book! I'm so glad I closed out 2014 on such a high note.

Thank you to the author, I received a copy of this book for free in exchange for an honest review.

HASH(0xa0267e94) out of 5 stars A True Treasure March 17 2015
By Carole Towriss - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
These were the children of Pharaoh's daughter Bithiah, whom Mered had married. 1 Chronicles 4:18

I love biblical fiction, and Mesu writes some of the best. Her latest, The Pharaoh’s Daughter is breathtaking. It is the story of Anippe, daughter of Horemheb, sister of King Tut, pharaoh of the Exodus. Terrified of dying in childbirth, it is she who finds Moses in the Nile, and passes him off as her son by her husband, Egyptian captain Sebak.

The Pharaoh’s Daughter is a brilliant study of the sometimes brutal beauty of ancient Egypt. The viciousness of her brother and father are a stark contrast to Anippe’s soft and often confused heart. Motherhood and its responsibilities, effects, and choices, and in all its variations, is explored in depth through the life of Anippe and others.

The novel follows Anippe from before her marriage through Moses’s adulthood. Her life follows a torturous path, but God works beautifully in and through it. One of Mesu’s themes is "fear is the most fertile ground for faith." You can see that in every chapter.

I cannot recommend The Pharaoh’s Daughter highly enough. This is Mesu’s finest work yet.

I was given a copy by the publisher and was not required to write a favorable review.

HASH(0xa01ec708) out of 5 stars Simply stunning work of Biblical fiction! March 17 2015
By Julie Masse - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
It's no secret that I am a huge fan of Mesu Andrews!! She has a gift for taking a story and making it come alive with rich details, exciting twists and turns and beautiful, interesting characters! And the Pharaoh's Daughter may just be my new favorite book from Ms. Andrews (although I truly love them all!).

The story follows the Biblical account of Moses, from a bit before his birth through his young adulthood. If you thought you knew this story, you are in for a treat! Expertly researched and woven together with marvelous detail, this book takes you on a journey of with Anipee, the pharoah's daughter, as she finds the baby Moses and spends the rest of her life loving, caring for and protecting him. I don't want to give away details from the story, but every single character and twist in this book adds to the beautiful story of God's providence! I loved reading of Jochabed and Miraim and how they were able to be a part of Moses's life once he entered the palace. Imagining how Moses would have grown up and lived as a member of Pharaoh's family is fascinating! One of my favorite thing is that each chapter begins with a small portion of scripture which serves to give you a foreshadowing of what may be ahead. Often I found myself going back to that scripture and being amazed at how it fit perfectly!

I can wholeheartedly recommend this book for anyone who loves Biblical fiction and if you've never tried it this book is THE book you should read first! I was, and truthfully still am, captivated by this story! It's one of those books you will want to read without stopping!! Mesu Andrews has outdone herself on this one - a true MUST read!!

I was given an advance copy in exchange for my honest review. Thank you.

HASH(0xa025d054) out of 5 stars Wonderfully real and complex relationships in these ancient characters. March 20 2015
By Mary L. Cooley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
You can actually feel the emotions in these characters. The descriptions of what they are going through brings you right into the story. You feel the longing and the anxiety that they go through. Always wondering what will happen next I could hardly put the book down, then I didn't want to finish it it was so real. A really great book. Through it all the relationship between 2 sisters is seen clearly in all its ups and downs.
