Take yourself back in time, when Yaakov Avinu runs away from his wicked twin, Esav, only to end up in the hands of the trickster, Lavan. And the rest, as they say, is history, except that in this marvelous book, history is a living, breathing entity, brought to life by the talented author and his masterful use of midrashim to spice up our understanding of the events as they unfold. From Yaakov and his sons we turn to Yosef and his awe - inspiring journey from being sold into slavery to becoming second - in - command over all of Egypt. This fascinating book takes us all the way through history to the Jewish People's descent to Mitzrayim, setting the stage for their imminent enslavement there. Those who have read the author's previous masterpieces know they're in for a treat. If this is your first time delving into one of Yosef Deutsch's historical depictions, rest assured you'll enjoy every satisfying page!
