    One thought on “Bondage

    1. Melanie on said:

      I enjoy reading historical fiction based on real people and events. Heather Moore does a fantastic job of writing novels like these, and she is, in fact, one of my favorite authors. Even though I know the story, I love how the characters come to life and I'm given a fresh perspective on what may have happened to influence the decisions they make. Miriam is a bit impulsive and sometimes that leads to something good, like saving Moses' life as a baby, and sometimes it leads to trouble, which happe [...]

      Amazing, epic, seriously can't wait for the next book in the series! I'm not often in the mood for Biblical fiction but I'm so, so glad I chose to read this one! Heather B. Moore never disappoints. This is the story of Miriam, Moses' sister, and her life as a Hebrew slave, daughter, and sister. She is headstrong but fiercely loyal, and attracts the interest of Caleb, who wants to protect her but doesn't understand why she continues to put herself in danger by watching the Egyptian royals (Moses [...]

      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 wri [...]

      I always go into any book that fictionalizes scriptural events hesitant. There are so many liberties that need to be taken to fill in the blanks and I hate confusing fact with fiction. But, I usually just approach books like this as works of fiction and not fact or scripture and then I'm okay.This book was so rich and full of life. I could easily imagine the scenes and the people as I went through this book. I loved the alternating points of view of Miriam and Moses. It really helped me create a [...]

    5. Heidi on said:

      I'm usually pretty wary when I come across Bible-based fictional stories just because you never know how the author is going to interpret the people involved. But I shouldn't have worried about that with Moore at the helm. She has written many other scriptural-based fictional stories so she has plenty of experience at filling in the missing parts. The story of Moses is a fascinating one as the man goes from a position of power and influence to living in hiding in the wilderness and then back to [...]

      As with any of Heather's books, the characters in The Moses Chronicles: Bondage are brought to live with her amazing storytelling and writing. I loved this fictional account of Moses and Miriam. I appreciated the point of view changes between Moses, Miriam, and Bithiah. Miriam was an especially enjoyable character. She was a very strong, and courageous woman in hard times. My heart broke for her with all she endured. Another aspect I enjoyed was Miriam's love for the brother she didn't know. Hea [...]

      H.B. Moore knows how do to a suspenseful historical thriller with extraordinary adventurous twists and turns that have you on the edge of your seat wondering if the characters will survive. This is even despite of the fact that if the reader knows their history, they already know the answer. In Ms. Moore’s prior novel “Eve: In the Beginning” for example, I experienced several moments of heart pounding fear and suspense wondering what would happen next to our heroine and hero despite having [...]

      I was hesitant to review this book because I thought it might be dry (and a little boring) - I could not have been more wrong! So much happened in this book that I never lost interest!This story is primarily Miriam's story, but we get three different points of view: Miriam, Moses, and Bithiah (Moses' mother). While I was already familiar with Moses' story, there were some parts of the history I wasn't as familiar with, and I love how this story brought the history alive for me. Bithiah is not a [...]

    9. Bonnie on said:

      This book sounded fascinating, and it was. I enjoyed reading about this time in history and particularly this story. However, even though I know it was accurate to the era, I didn't like all the innuendos. For some reason it put a beloved story into a different light for me. As long as I was able to kept my perspective on the historical fiction part of it, I enjoyed the read. It is a fascinating story that most people will love.

    10. Amy on said:

      Bondage is yet another fabulous read but HB Moore. I thoroughly enjoyed her imagination of how Moses and his family lived. I loved everything about this book, especially Mariam, Moses's sister.I cannot wait to read book 2 of the Moses Chronicles series.Wonderful read!5 plus stars

    11. Kristina Applegate on said:

      While reading Bondage, the reader is introduced to several strong characters that instantly have you hooked:Moses: Struggling with not quite fitting into the popular beliefs and practices of the other Egyptians, Moses finds himself starting to find empathy for the Hebrew Slaves. Not willing to “visit” the harems with the other royalty, helping to free a Hebrew from false accusations of being a thief, and protecting a group of Hebrew women from the leering grasps of a fellow Egyptian are just [...]

    12. Rachel Devaughn on said:

      This story was absolutely exciting and thrilling from the beginning to the very end!“Bondage” Book #1 in the Moses Chronicles alternates chapters with the telling of Miriam and Moses’s story in their point of view. All the while weaving in real biblical characters like Aaron, Caleb, and Ramses II; and fictional characters like Katu and Deborah.This book ends with Moses leaving his mother and the Nile Valley to head towards the Hebrew Villages; obviously leaving it open ended to continue wi [...]

    13. Cheryl on said:

      Loved this perspective into Moses and Miriam's life! Heather B. Moore always helps me look at scripture stories in a new way. I love her incite and the research behind her writing. She and her dad make a great team. He is a professor of ancient scripture. She always acknowledges his help in her research. With his help, she creates the world where these people we know and love lived. I grew up on the movie "The Ten Commandments." I always adored it. Anytime we recreate the past we have to guess a [...]

    14. Andrea on said:

      It has been awhile since I've read one of H.B. Moore's scriptural based novels, and to be honest I was a little hesitant to read The Moses Chronicles: Bondage. I guess I've had him in my mind in a certain way, and I didn't really want to mess with that. Especially if it wasn't handled . . . reverently, I guess. However, I'm really glad that I gave this book a shot. I was reminded about how well Moore brings scriptural characters to life. I've read other scriptural based novels that really didn't [...]

    15. Rachelle on said:

      In this rendition of the Moses story found in the Bible, Heather has brought the early era of Moses to life in a story that you won't want to miss. The story focuses on his sister Miriam and the watchful eye she has kept on the baby brother she sent down the river eighteen years before. We see how the Hebrew slaves lived and what a miracle it was that Moses grew up right under the pharaoh's nose.Heather's knowledge of Biblical times enlightens the reader by showing how the setting in which Moses [...]

    16. Sharon Absher on said:

      I was given this book for free to do a honest review!!I really enjoyed reading this book as it took you into the lives of Moses and Miriam. H.B. Moore made you think and feel what Miriam and Moses must have felt back then and how life was for them. She bought them to life and made you really think that Hay this may have been what they where thinking and this may have been what they actually felt. She made them feel more real. You are able to connect with the character's so much that you will fin [...]

    17. Sylvia on said:

      Whenever I step into a fiction novel based on real events and people I am quite hesitant. I am always concerned over just how the author may blend their own imagination in and perhaps alter or confuse reality. I can gladly say that any concern over this novel was quickly dispelled. Heather B. Moore brought the historical figures, location and events to life. She took what we know from the Old Testament and wove a very lifelike and emotional story. In Bondage we step into the lives of not only Mo [...]

    18. Charissa on said:

      I love Heather Moore’s Bible stories. She makes the characters and simple scriptural verses come alive through her storytelling. This is the first installment in Moses’s life. He is 18 at the start of this book and living the high life as an Egyptian royal who is friends with the crown prince, Ramses. This fascinating tale involved his Hebrew sister Miriam and her love interest, Caleb, as well as his older brother Aaron and his Egyptian mother (the daughter of Pharoah), Bithia. These charact [...]

    19. Nicole on said:

      Really probably 4.5 stars, but I enjoyed this book a lot more than I went into it expecting to. I really enjoyed the fictionalized account of Moses and his sister Miriam and how the author made the biblical story seem more real and relate-able than the language the scriptures is written in. There were plenty of details, plus my prior knowledge of the author's background, that made it apparent how well the author did her research and then applied her knowledge to the book to make it authentic (as [...]

    20. Lisa Paskins on said:

      This is a rich tale of ancient Egypt that weaves the tale of Moses and his sister Miriam, who hovered over the basket found in the river Nile by Princess Bithia. The time and culture come to life as you read of the struggles between the Hebrews and their Egyptian masters. Miriam is brought to life with a spirit all her own as she struggles to reach adulthood and accept the responsibility of marriage. You will meet key characters such as Prince Ramses, Aaron (the brother of Miriam), etc. and come [...]

    21. Nicki on said:

      What a great book! If the Bible was written like this book I would remember more of the people and their part of the Bible. I thought the story was well written. The characters were well developed and pulled me into the overall story. I did not expect to feel as involved in the story. But I found myself intrigued with the palace life, Moses fitting into that life and how the Hebrews were viewed. The slave village life was portrayed with much more thought than I had ever given it. I was not ready [...]

    22. Laura on said:

      NOOOOOO. It ended. (duh-they always end!) I was so invested in the story that I wasn't ready for it to end when it did. Granted, Moore did a good job and wrapped up most of the big questions before she closed the story. With the story being about Moses, anyone who has read the bible knows where the story is going, but I REALLY wanted to just keep reading. I am looking forward to the next books coming out in the series. There are so many possibilities in different relationships that I will defini [...]

    23. Cami Checketts on said:

      I'm a huge fan of Heather Moore, but her biblical fiction is my absolute favorite. I loved this book and looked for every opportunity to read, ignoring my children and my own writing deadlines. Moses and Miriam's stories came alive for me and I can hardly wait for the next book in the series.

    24. Monica on said:

      The Moses Chronicles is a retelling of the Moses story from the Old Testiment.

    25. Vicki on said:

      This is a very well written story about Moses' sister, Miriam. Loved it so much now I can't wait for the next!!!

    26. Jill on said:

      I was a little wary - not a huge fan of scriptural fiction. But, I enjoyed this easy read and will look forward to its sequel.

    27. Chris Yorgason on said:

      This was a quick read, but a good one. I enjoyed the perspective of Miriam, a sister who watches her younger brother grow from afar — living a life of luxury, without realizing that his true family are living as slaves in the nearby village. Like any good sister, Miriam, is not jealous of Moses, but only cares for his well being. We learn about Moses, Bilthiah, Aaron and Caleb as well, along as the rest of the royal family. A great take on the early like of Moses and his family.
