This is a fictional story based on the life of Caleb. Caleb is one of those names that you can glance over the in Old Testament amongst such huge names as Moses and Joshua.
Imagine being one of two men who thought they could enter the Promised Land. Then getting told to wait 40 years until you actually enter it because of the disobedience of the many.
It is a well written story and I think gives some great insights to how the people would have thought at the time. I have often found it almost unbelievable that God rescued the people from Egypt and mere days later they want to return. This story handles some of those personal battles, similar to the battles we face today, really well.
This is the first of Francine’s books that I have read. I will definitively read more in the future.
