Coming Out Of Egypt by Angela Joseph introduces us to Marva and June, two sisters who have been abused sexually since their childhood. Due to this abuse, Marva commits a terrible crime and she ends up running from the law, and working towards making a new life for herself and June. Marva knows she should face justice for what she did, but she wants a different life, one full of love and understanding. The question is, will she find what she seeks?
This was an interesting book and one that really did draw me in and make me question things. I like that it makes you feel connected to Marva; she committed a crime, but she really does seek forgiveness for what she did and wants so badly to leave her old life behind her. Haven't all of us at one time or another wanted to be forgiven for something and wanted to leave it behind? For me, this was a story of overcoming a terrible childhood and finding some redemption while showing the love between two sisters who went through a lot together.
It is an emotional story that also deals with the morals of a world that is not black and white. The story flows beautifully and is truly written in a compelling way. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to read a well written story with fully fleshed out characters who feel very real. You will not regret a single moment of time you spend with Marva and June.
