Brothers by Angela Hunt

If anyone were to form good characters in Biblical fiction, it would be Angela Hunt.
Brothers is centered around Simeon's captivity in Egypt. He is an extremely believable character, better than any other Biblical character portrayed in fiction. The female lead is Mandisa, a servant in Joseph's house. She attends Simeon for most of the book. Together create a good character foil.
Meanwhile, a young prostitute has come to stay in Joseph's house. She has been charged to take care of young Ephraim and Manasseh. This also creates a character foil.
Basically, this is like Kristen Heitzmann characters operating in a Biblical setting, making this book one of the only Biblical fiction books on the Elite List.
4 stars
