Miriam’s Song by Jill Eileen Smith is a beautifully written biblical story. This story featured a character I was not aware existed in reality. I did not know Moses had a sister. That information was completely new to me. I am glad I read this novel. I happened to learn something new. The fictional tale follows along with facts from the bible and builds it up in an captivating way. I was hooked. Jill Eileen Smith’s writing is superb. She knows her topics well and with her unique writing style, this was a blast! I love reading Christian fiction and this book has made it to my favorites list. Once I started reading, I had to read the rest. The characterization and settings were done well. My curiosity was caught with this intriguing read. Overall, I recommend it to all fans of this genre, as well as clean and entertaining stories.
