Tirzah by Lucille Travis (non-Christadelphian author)
This book follows a young Israelite girl and her family from the exodus in Egypt until the spies return from searching out the land of Canaan two years later. Children between 8-13 would enjoy reading this book on their own, but older/younger may enjoy it too. The dialogue switches back and forth a bit from a formal Biblical style to a more modern conversational one at times. There are a number of references to match-making and marriage partners in the book.
One possible discussion point of false doctrine near the end of the book to be aware of – a beloved midwife dies from illness just before they reach Canaan and someone says “Perhaps she has already reached her Promised Land” (a reference to going to heaven); however this could also be interpreted as a faithful saint awaiting the resurrection. The author also has another book “Timna” based on the family of Noah, but we have not proof-read that book yet.
