This is Halter's second go at fiction involving biblical figures. This time he tackles Zipporah, the wife of Moses, from the time she lives amongst Jethro's peoples to the giving of the Ten Commandments. Bernadette Dunne's strong voice creates a portrait of Zipporah as a proud woman comfortable with herself and her status as Jethro's daughter and then Moses's wife. Dunne shows Moses as a less self-assured man who must struggle with his place, mission, and future among the Jewish people. Halter seamlessly blends the biblical stories and weaves them from the female perspective. Dunne's even pacing and quiet dramatizations will hold the listener until the end.
