A novel of Joseph in Egypt.
When Joseph, the eleventh son of Jacob, is sold into bondage by his brothers, Egypt is a land in turmoil its fortune determined by the unpredictable rains that either bring prosperity or leave the people in famine and starvation. But Joseph is no common slave. Imprisoned and forgotten by all but God, he interprets a dream that reveals the future and alters his destiny.
Now with his privileged Egyptian-born wife, Asenath, at his side, Josephs transformation from the boy in the pit to the ruler of Egypt is nearly complete. But position and power cannot erase the bitterness he holds deep inside.
When he suddenly comes face to face with the family that betrayed him, Joseph devises a plot to test his brothers’ true character. Yet even revenge may not fill the aching hole in Josephs heart, and the influence of a beautiful woman may be his only hope for redemption.
