To save her infant son from the brutal decree of a powerful Pharaoh, a Hebrew mother places the baby in a basket and sets him adrift on the Nile. The basket is found by the queen, who names the boy Moses and raises him as her own son - a prince of Egypt.
Years pass before Moses learns of his connection to the Hebrew slaves. Unable to live a life based on untruths, he flees into the desert. And it is there that his life changes dramatically. Called by God, he finds himself chosen to bring the Hebrew people to a new life of freedom. Moses knows that his task will not be an easy one. How can he, one man, stand up against a mighty dynasty? How can he, once thought to be the son of the Pharaoh, lead the slaves who suffered at Egypt's hand?
Written by acclaimed author Lynne Reid Banks, this powerfully moving novel is inspired by the epic film 'The Prince Of Egypt' and the 'Book Of Exodus'. It is the story of love, faith, courage and the triumph of the human spirit.
