Miriam – Scavenger Hunt Blog Hop and Book Giveaway

I’m so excited to be a part of this scavenger hunt blog hop in celebration of the launch of Mesu Andrews’ second book in her Treasures of the Nile series, Miriam!

Miriam Scavenger Hunt Blog Hop

I realize most of you are probably already “on the hunt”, but if you just happened on this page first, you’ll want to hop on over to the start of the hunt at Mesu’s blog and then you’ll finish your journey at Mommynificent.com. At the bottom of this post, you can find the full list of stops for the entire hunt. Between March 15th and 20th, click on the next link, head over to the page, meet a new book-lover, and read their thoughts about Miriam. Somewhere in each post there will be a single word that is in BOLD AND ALL CAPITALS. Write it down. (The words “Home” and “Good Luck” are not secret words for anyone.)

Then, go to the next stop. That post will also have a word that’s bolded and capitalized. You will need to visit all 14 blogs as each one will have a word that you need. Once you reach the end and have found all the words, you will have found an inspirational quote from the book Miriam. There are 14 words in this quote. Enter the quote into the Rafflecopter on the last stop and you will be entered to win a Kindle Fire from Mesu Andrews!  You can also enter a Rafflecopter at the end of this post to enter to win a copy of Miriam by Mesu Andrews.(Open to U.S. residents only)

If you have any questions, get lost, or experience any technical difficulties, you may email Tina at tina{at}mommynificent{dot}com for help.

Now, let’s talk about this fantastic book!

Miriam by Mesu Andrews

About the Book

Title: Miriam

Author: Mesu Andrews

Series: Treasures of the Nile, Book 2

Publication Date: March 15, 2016

Publisher: WaterBrook Press

Print Length: 384 pages

Summary from the publisher: At eighty-six, Miriam had devoted her entire life to loving El Shaddai and serving His people as both midwife and messenger. Yet when her brother Moses returns to Egypt from exile, he brings a disruptive message. God has a new name – Yahweh – and has declared a radical deliverance for the Israelites.

Miriam and her beloved family face an impossible choice: cling to familiar bondage or embrace uncharted freedom at an unimaginable cost. Even if the Hebrews survive the plagues set to turn the Nile to blood and unleash a maelstrom of frogs and locusts, can they weather the resulting fury of the Pharaoh?

Enter an exotic land where a cruel Pharaoh reigns, pagan priests wield black arts, and the Israelites cry out to a God they only think they know.

My Thoughts about Miriam by Mesu Andrews

If you’ve ever wanted to step back in time and see what it was like to live in the time of the Bible, you’ve got to read Mesu Andrews’ books — any of them. Miriam is the latest in her Treasures of the Nile series, BUT she’s also written many from the viewpoint of many other women in Bible times. Her in-depth character development, rich descriptions of exotic Middle Eastern settings, and her glorious command of language makes reading her book a joy. I know you’ll love Miriam.

    I have not read any of her books, as she is a new author to me. I am glad I came across this post, because these books look like very good reads!!!

  3. I also really like Mesu’s character studies and I think this book could have been about so many of those who walked at Miriam’s side. She did a great job on this one!

  4. I haven’t read any of Mesu’s books yet so I don’t have a favorite, but I am interested to read about Miriam. Thanks for the giveaway!

  5. haven’t read any yet

  6. I have to admit I have not read her yet! I need to fix that. 😉
