Publisher Description

Thrust into an arranged marriage, the daughter of ancient Egypt’s high priest plays a pivotal role in Joseph’s biblical narrative in this powerful novel from the award-winning author of Potiphar’s Wife.

After four-year-old Asenath’s mother is murdered by Egypt’s foreign rulers, the child is raised to be a priestess by her overprotective father—high priest of Egypt’s sun god. For fifteen years, Asenath is sequestered in the upper levels of Ra’s temple, convinced it is her destiny to heal the land by becoming queen to the next Egyptian pharaoh. But when Egypt’s foreign king instead gives her as a bride to the newly appointed vizier—a Hebrew named Joseph—her entire world is shaken. 

Beyond the walls of her tower, Asenath discovers treachery, deceit, and conspiracy that force her to redefine her destiny and weigh where her true loyalties lie. Can she still trust the gods of Egypt? Or is Elohim, the foreign God of her husband, the one who will heal her nation during the feast and famine to come?

Absolutely Stunning!

This book is so, so good. It reveals ancient truths, amazing visionaries of what could have been, with wonderful character traits and a compelling plot-line that draws you in…and keeps drawing you in to the last page. Absolutely sensational! I absolutely love how the author depicts Joseph, God’s love and purpose for us through these characters, and unlikely people who have a purpose in God’s Kingdom. Honestly, I have never thought about Joseph’s wife, but it is believable that she would have surrendered to Joseph’s God. I was never disappointed with this book and can’t wait to read it again at some point!
