Book of the Month: DREAMERS

DREAMERS releases this month--in fact, it's rolling onto store shelves right now.  It's the first book in a trilogy about Joseph, son of Jacob, and the setting is ancient Egypt. 

If you'd like to order a copy online, you can do so here. This book was originally published by Bethany House, but I've "refreshed" it and it's available now from Steeple Hill. 


Product Description
In the land of Pharaoh, Tuya has always been a slave. As a little girl, she was sold as a playmate to a wealthy child who became her best friend. But as she approaches womanhood, beautiful Tuya is betrayed and cast out. Now she belongs to Potiphar, captain of Pharaoh's guard. Yet her heart is owned by handsome Joseph, sold into slavery by his own brothers. Proud, arrogant Joseph dreams of freedom, of his own household, of Tuya as his queen. Shared dreams will sustain Joseph and Tuya through the deepest of sorrows and most unbearable of separations…but is it God's will to make the dream their destiny? 

Tomorrow: how the idea germinated.

I read this book during Thanksgiving. Loved it. And I usually stay away from fictionalized accounts of Biblical stuff. But I knew I could trust you to handle it correctly and do the research, and I was not disappointed.

I absolutely love Dreamers, it's one of my favorites. I'm thrilled to see it available again. I was wondering, Angie, can you be a little more specific about how this edition has been "refreshed"?
Thanks!

I LOVED it, and historical fiction is not my favorite genre. In fact, I excitedly wrote my review so quickly, that I've had to go back and make corrections on the bad (no--rotten!) grammar!

Ditto the question from Ruth. Having read and loved the series a few years back, I wonder whether the difference is in tightening as opposed to substantive changes in story line?

Loved the photos from your trip. You are an adventurous (adventuresome?) lady and I admire you for that! What fun to have a partner in these adventures. Did the rainforest remind you at all of the setting for The Canopy? Had you traveled to the Amazon before writing that book? Did you find more topics for future books on this trip? Am I asking too many questions? Clyde

I preordered the new release of Dreamers from Amazon and got it last week, and it is next on my reading list! Did you also "refresh" the other books in the trilogy? (And what are their names as I plan to read them next, too!)

Leslie said...

I think I already commented last week that I was pleasantly surprised last week by my pre-order arriving.

I probably won't get the chance to read it too soon...but looking forward to it!

I promise to answer all of your questions, either in the posts to come, or in the Q&A at the end. :-) So stay tuned!

I enjoyed this trilogy series a few years back. When you say it's been "refreshed", exactly how much of the story changes? I'm curious.

"Dreamers" was the first of your books that i read, and i haven't missed a book of yours since! they have all been wonderful!
Question:
will you ever "refresh" "The Keepers of the Ring Series?"
