Product Details


“Mesu’s talent for intertwining extensive research with riveting storytelling breathes freshness into the ancient and beloved story of Joseph. I highly recommend this fascinating glimpse into his life and faith journey, along with that of Asenath, the often overlooked Egyptian woman at his side.”—Connilyn Cossette, Christy Award–winning and ECPA bestselling author

“In the pages of In Feast or Famine, Mesu Andrews shines light on the little-known but beloved wife of Joseph. With deftness and deep insight, she brings her characters to vivid life, lifting Asenath from obscurity to multifaceted daughter, wife, future mother, and ultimately a believer in Elohim. Well researched and richly presented, this latest offering is a literary feast!”—Laura Frantz, Christy Award–winning author of The Rose and the Thistle

“Mesu Andrews possesses the ability to pull aside the curtain to the past and bring biblical characters to life. Although long familiar with the biblical story of Joseph and his transition from slave to powerful leader, I was mesmerized by the journey this story laid out for him. My deepest takeaway can be found in a single line of dialogue: “Elohim meets us in our pain.” Truth indeed, painted eloquently by this author’s gifted pen. I highly recommend this novel.”—Kim Vogel Sawyer, bestselling author of Freedom’s Song

“The second half of Joseph’s story comes to life in this exciting sequel to Potiphar’s Wife. The spotlight shines on Asenath, Joseph’s Egyptian wife, giving us a firsthand look at her journey. Palace intrigue, political drama, romance, and inspiration are all woven together in this inspiring story. Those who are looking for well-written biblical fiction with exceptional research will be delighted with this new novel from bestselling author Mesu Andrews.”—Carrie Turansky, award-winning author of The Legacy of Longdale Manor and No Journey Too Far

In Feast or Famine invites us to experience a familiar story come to life. As an unlikely romance blooms amid political machinations and ruthless ambition, one woman learns to trust the God who has a plan for her life, even when the future is uncertain. This novel is a treat for all those who are fascinated by ancient Egypt, love the rags-to-riches story of Joseph, and are ready to step into experiencing the faithfulness of God to every nation.”—Tracy Higley, author of A Time to Seek

“Imagine if the entire foundation of your life turned out to be a lie. That’s the essence of Egyptian priestess Asenath’s story in In Feast or Famine by Mesu Andrews. Forced into an arranged marriage, Asenath tries to remain true to her beliefs until Elohim, her husband Joseph’s one true God, reveals His worthiness to her. The author’s thoughtful research moves this fascinating slice of biblical history along like a fast-moving river. A riveting page-turner!”—Suzanne Woods Fisher, author of the bestselling book The Moonlight School
