Deliverence (The Moses Chronicles Volume 2) by H.B. Moore with Giveaway

The Moses Chronicles Vol. 2 -- Deliverance
by H.B. Moore
Kindle Edition, 288 pages
Published March 1st 2016 by Covenant Communications
Experience the life of Moses as never before, following his journey from fugitive of Egypt to prophet of God. In this exhilarating follow-up to H.B. Moore’s biblical drama The Moses Chronicles: Bondage, the account of Moses’s flight from Egypt continues. Moses’s life as he knew it is over. He has chosen to stand for his beliefs at the cost of being cast out of his royal home and family. He is free of the wickedness of Egypt, but peace is not to be found, for Moses is as much an aimless wanderer as those in the nomadic tribe he encounters in the wilderness. Exhausted by long weeks of travel, he nevertheless jumps to action when he observes a group of young women accosted by a band of Bedrayan men at a communal well. These lovely daughters of Jethro are grateful for his help, and their Midianite tribe welcomes Moses with open arms. As he learns the ways of the Midianites, his kinship with Jethro grows—as does his admiration of one of Jethro’s daughters, Zipporah. But when Moses suddenly receives a burning call to free the very people he has long oppressed, will he have the courage to return to the land from which he has been exiled?
My Review: 5 Stars
I haven't read the first volume, but as I'm familiar with the basic key points to the story of Moses, I didn't feel that I was missing out on very much by jumping right into this one. I was just talking with my kids, not too long ago, and we were thinking about people who lived before us. We were wondering if our lives would be in vain or if people in the future would care about us, want to know us, and realize that we had lives, interests, friends, families, etc. Moses has also been just a prophet to me and this book really brought him to life. Although these thoughts and feelings may not be exactly accurate, they helped me understand him better and made him more real and personable. 
I enjoyed the sequence of events that were portrayed in this book, as they were full of love, adventure, loyalty, devotion, and suspense. Times back then weren't easy, by any means, and I'm all the more grateful to live when I do. I loved the characters and getting to know them better throughout the story. I'm looking forward to the next installment. Although I know what's going to happen, I love getting the little details that transport me right into the story line.

Content: mild romance; mild violence (fighting, defending, killing-- not graphic); mild religious elements. Clean!
