Sonia Levitin is a renowned author of young adult stories, who lives up to her reputation in this retelling of the story of the Exodus. Jesse, a Hebrew slave, is the main character, along with Jennat, a half-Egyptian, half-Syrian girl Jesse falls in love with. The story revolves around their adventures while leaving Egypt during the ten plagues. Grace Conlin reads this enchanting narrative with subtle intonations to identify the characters. Conlin conveys the tension of the days in the desert and the adjustment to the new ways of freedom and belief through her ever-changing reading voice and the pacing of the story. Together, Levitin and Conlin bring this timeless tale to life. M.B.K. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JAN 96]
