Item description for Brothers (Legacies of the Ancient River) by Angela Hunt...
Overview Simeon, under house arrest until his youngest brother is brought before Joseph, the great vizier of Egypt, falls for Mandisa, who cannot give her heart to him until he confronts his angry past.
Publishers Description As famine overtakes the land, Simeon leads his brothers into Egypt to buy grain. He doesn't recognize the vengeful ruler he must bow before: Joseph, his long-lost brother. The very brother Simeon sold into slavery years ago. Now, it is the brash Simeon's turn to know imprisonment. Only Mandisa, the handmaid who interprets the ruler's language, is his saving grace. The beautiful widow and her young son see another side of Simeon, tenderness under the tough exterior. Yet he will never be free to love them until he unshackles the chains of his own heart.

Reviews - What do customers think about Brothers (Legacies of the Ancient River)?
Brings the Old Testament patriarchs to life! May 19, 2010
Takea lush, well-researched picture of life in Egypt. Add rich and colorful adaptations of characters from the Old Testament story of Joseph in Egypt. Hunt does a great job of bringing the Bible story to life. Now throw in a fairly "formula" Beauty and the Beast love story. I absolutely loved all of it except the love story. I did appreciate the "PG" levels of sex--you gotta respect a clean romance. I bought the next book anyway and can't wait to read it. ;-)
Brothers Mar 19, 2009
I purchased a book, titled "Brothers" by Angela Ewell Hunt. Angela Hunt is a fantastic author and I enjoy all of her books. I am always in search of her new books as well as any of her old books that I have not read. This books is very good. Received the book quickly and in mint shape. Thanks again, this site!!!!
"Just One More Page - Then I'll Turn Off the Light" Apr 2, 2005
I found this Biblical fiction very well written. It was one of those rare books that you pickup that is not only entertaining but one that you find yourself at night when you should be going to sleep saying to yourself "Just ONE more page - then'll I'll turn off the light". The author wrote this is in such a style that I found myself absorbed in the lives of each character and felt their sadness when they were sad and their joy when they were joyous. I felt like I was actually in Egypt and was living with these people feeling their feelings. A quick read and I can't wait to read the next in the series.
A wonderful story Aug 12, 2002
This is not only the story of Joseph's reunion with his family, but the story of Simeon--the brother who is the Destroyer. He has destroyed anything that meant anything in his past. When he is selected to remain in Egypt until the other brothers come back with Benjamin, he is forced to look at himself. But it is not until he goes back to Canaan that he truly examines who he is and what he believes.
There are lots of little sub-plots in the book that keep it interesting. I thought the writing was good, and the plot was fast-paced enough. There are also a few surprises along the way.
Basically, an enjoyable book and I will be reading the next one.
