Synopsis

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Mokin’s writing is clear, clean and addictive. His interpretation of the Exodus story is fascinating. I did have some quibbles with a few of the historical details, but Meribah is a great read. —Deborah Green, Assoc. Professor of Hebrew Language and Literature, University of Oregon. Meribah, a love story set in ancient Egypt is told against the narrative of the Bible’s Book of Exodus. A young Egyptian falls in love with a Hebrew slave woman, and follows her and her people as the Israelites flee Egypt and plunge into the desert wilderness. The Egyptian realizes that he must reconcile his own (pagan) beliefs with those of the woman he loves if their love is to be consummated. The lovers’ story told against the drama of the Exodus makes for an absorbing, thought-provoking, and immensely readable novel.
