"Ebers has used events from the Bible as the backdrop of this work. It revolves around the experiences of a group of Hebrew travellers. With sands of the Egyptian desert swirling around them and amidst hardships, there buds a love, so true and profound, that it mesmerizes the reader."
When the tribes, full of enthusiasm for their God, and ready for the most arduous enterprises, shook off their chains and, exulting in their new liberty, rushed forward to the Promised Land Moses, and with him the majority of the elders, had believed that, like a mountain torrent, bursting dams and sluices, they would destroy and overthrow everything that ventured to oppose their progress. With these enthusiastic masses, to whom bold advance would secure the highest good, and timid hesitation could bring nothing save death and ruin, they had expected to rush over the Etham line as if it were a pile of faggots.
