Seven days to the sea: an epic novel of the Exodus
As a child, Miryam foretells the birth of a leader who will save theirpeople from oppression—a vision so vivid that she dedicates her lifeto seeing it fulfilled in her brother, Moses. But after many years,she wonders in the deepest confines of her heart if her sacrificesmean anything, if her calling is real. Tzipporah, a desert shepherdess who knows nothing of her husband's divine purpose, suffers as he is torn from her by a strange god, a foreign people, and anunforgiving sister. In her heart, she harbors terrible secrets thathaunt the love she shares with Moses and threaten her tenuous peacewith Miryam. Together, Miryam and Tzipporah weave a narrative thatgives voice to the women of Exodus—their lives, their community, andultimately, their sisterhood.
