Blog Tour - The Eleventh Brother

About the book: 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, Joseph's 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 Joseph's heart, and the influence of a beautiful woman may be his only hope for redemption.

My review: I really enjoyed reading this book. This is the story of Joseph from the Bible, I enjoyed how it was told with not only the Bible verses, but with lots of description of how life would have been for Joseph in Egypt. I loved the way that Joseph is portrayed as a very powerful man in Egypt, but he has flashbacks of how his life was as a young boy before he was sold into slavery and also of his time in Potiphar's house. I liked also that part of the story is told from the perspective of Judah, how he longs for forgiveness for what they did for Joseph. How he wishes he could change the past. This book really is an amazing retelling of Joseph's story, I learned a lot about not only Joseph's story, but also about forgiveness. Don't miss it!

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
