In the time of the Pharaoh, a tiny infant is rescued from the banks of the Red Sea. She is named Zipporah. Although she is a Cushite by birth--one of the black people of the lands to the south--she is taken in by Jethro, high priest and sage of the Midianites. Jethro adores his adopted daughter, and she is an honored member of his family. But the blackness of Zipporah's skin sets her apart and will decide her future: she will be an outsider, and the men of her adopted tribe will not want her as a wife. But when she becomes a young woman, Zipporah's destiny changes forever. While drawing water at a well one day, she meets a handsome young man, a stranger. Like her, he is an outsider, a foreigner. His name is Moses. A Hebrew raised in the house of the Pharaoh, Moses is a fugitive, forced to flee his homeland of Egypt after murdering one of the Pharaoh's cruel overseers. Zipporah knows almost immediately that this man will be the husband and partner she never thought she would have. At first Moses wants nothing more than a peaceful life with the Midianites. He is content in his role as Zipporah's lover and the honorary son of Jethro the sage. But Zipporah refuses to let Moses forget his past or turn away from what she believes to be his true destiny. Although he is the love of her life and the father of her children, Zipporah won't marry Moses until he agrees to return to Egypt to confront Pharaoh and free his people. When God reveals himself to Moses in the burning bush, his words echo Zipporah's, and Moses returns to Egypt with Zipporah by his side. A passionate lover and a generous, thoughtful wife, Zipporah becomes the guiding force in Moses' struggle. With the help of her powerful father, she teaches the rebellious young man about the rule of law and the force of justice. Because of Zipporah--the outsider, the black-skinned woman--Moses becomes a defender of the oppressed and a liberator of the enslaved.… (més)

L'autre face de Moïse ( )

"Without Zipporah, Moses wouldn’t be Moses. Her thoughts are my thoughts. That’s why she became my wife.”
Although this book is rich in biblical history, I found it to be more of a love story than historical fiction.
The book begins with Moses meeting and saving Zipporah while living as a fugitive. He then, through her encouragement, develops into the prophet who led his people from slavery. ( )

Good book.....disappointing ending.

I enjoyed this book, though at times it 'dragged' a little. Obviously it is only very loosely based on the Bible. It is an imaginative work. I'd read the other reviews before I read the book and went in expecting to be disappointed. It is true that I did not find it as good as Sarah, but it was still an enjoyable book for me. Though there was some 'racism' in the book, I didn't find this to be as large a factor in the book as I'd been led to believe by the reviews. Zipporah was treated as an outsider by her inlaws, with much jealously displayed, and this was attributed to race, but the bottom line was her sister-in-law and her sister didn't like her; were jealous of her; and racism was as good an excuse as any. They would have found another reason if this one weren't so convenient. The one thing I didn't like in this was how Moses' sibs came off as so petty.
Having said that, I DID enjoy the book right up until the end. It ended much too abrubtly. Not wanting to give away the end,I will only say I found it disappointing. In general, if I don't like the way a book ends, I won't like the book, but I still found this one to be worth reading.

Il y a plus de trois mille ans, une enfant noire est recueillie au bord de la mer Rouge. On l'appelle Tsippora, l'"Oiseau". La couleur de sa peau a déjà décidé de son avenir : nul ne la voudra pour épouse. Un jour, pourtant, près d'un puits, un homme la regarde comme aucun autre. Il s'appelle Moïse et fuit l'Égypte. Amante passionnée, épouse généreuse, Tsippora la Noire, l'étrangère, la non Juive, porte la destinée de Moïse à bout de bras. Oubliant ses craintes et ses doutes, il entend grâce à elle le message de Dieu et léguera à l'humanité ces Lois qui, aujourd'hui encore, protègent les faibles contre les forts. Mais son amour pour Moïse menace Tsippora : dans la cohorte des Hébreux de l'Exode, son destin de femme à la peau noire la rattrape...

A novelization of the story of Zipporah, Moses wife, this is not quite at the level of Anita Diamant's The Red Tent. The characters aren't fully drawn and not very much happens. ( )
