About In Feast or Famine

Thrust into an arranged marriage, the daughter of ancient Egypt’s high priest plays a pivotal role in Joseph’s biblical narrative in this powerful novel from the award-winning author of Potiphar’s Wife.

Four-year-old Asenath witnesses her mother’s murder at the hands of Egypt’s foreign rulers. Groomed as a priestess by her overprotective father—the high priest of Egypt’s sun god, Ra—she is sequestered in a tower for fifteen years and convinced that her destiny is to heal the land by becoming queen to the next Egyptian Pharaoh. But her whole world is shaken when Egypt’s reigning foreign king gives Asenath as a bride to the newly appointed vizier—a Hebrew named Joseph. 

Stepping out of her lofty tower, Asenath discovers treachery, deceit, and conspiracy, forcing her to redefine her destiny and choose where her true loyalties lie. Can she still trust the gods of Egypt? Or is it Elohim, the foreign God of her husband, who will help heal her nation during the feast and famine to come?
