I have read the story of Joseph dozens of times, and this book brings his character fully to life. It is rich with cultural details that make you feel like you are really there with him! It is a must-read!
This book is my absolute favourite book!!! I love it! I just love how the author puts so much culture, politics, and places into her writing in such a realistic way, while combining it with one of the best-loved Bible stories! So very realistic. I've read it so many times! A lot of research went into this book, and the lessons the author brings out are very good. I really recommend that anyone over the age of 12 read this book, it is great!
