In Feast or Famine follows Potiphar’s Wife as the highly anticipated second installment of the Egyptian Chronicles series and will capture the imagination of readers eager to understand more about women who lived in biblical times.

Andrews’ new work of historical fiction follows the life of Asenath, daughter of a powerful Egyptian high priest, from her tumultuous childhood into early adulthood. Having tragically lost her mother at the age of four, Asenath has always trusted her father, even during the many years he kept her locked in a tower. But when her father forces her into an arranged marriage with the newly appointed vizier — a Hebrew named Joseph – Asenath is forced to redefine her destiny and choose where her loyalties lie.

Readers will be captivated as Asenath awakens to her true self amid treachery, deceit, and conspiracies, and the surprising romance that develops over time between Asenath and Joseph will woo even the brokenhearted.

Andrews’ readers should expect the unexpected when it comes to plot twists in this remarkable work of scripture-based fiction. With fascinating parallels between the rights of ancient and contemporary women, In Feast or Famine provides a thought-provoking page turner for today’s female audience.

In Feast or Famine is a perfect pick for Bible studies seeking a fresh angle on Old Testament stories or for anyone looking for an engrossing, eye-opening summer read. Utilizing a wide array of sources, such as the Antiquities of Josephus and The Political Situation in Egypt during the Second Intermediate Period c. 1800-1550 B.C., remarkable historical details will make this novel a new favorite among Andrews’ loyal fanbase, while capturing the attention of a new audience as well.

      Me, too, Aubrey! And that’s one of the reasons I love biblical FICTION–because you can read several authors’ perspectives on the same Bible story. The foundational TRUTH of Scripture is (or, at least, should be) exactly the same, but the extraneous details or plot twists might take a little different turn. It’s so fun to imagine what REAL Bible people’s lives might have been like!

    • Traci

      What a wonderful interview! You have some very honest friends!!! I was very impressed how you just spoke about the biblical history and didn’t need to look at any notes! The book has been released, so I need to go purchase it right now, as I thoroughly enjoy your books. Thank you for your time and your wisdom.

      • Deena Adams

        Thanks so much for watching and commenting, Traci. I was blown away with Mesu’s knowledge of the Bible and history, too. I can’t imagine storing all those facts in my brain. LOL

      • Mesu

        You know, Traci, my brain is a little like Swiss cheese. Lots of important facts fall through the holes, but somehow my biblical historical research stays put! LOL! That’s how I’ve always known the Lord is in this writing thing with me. I may not remember what I had for supper last night, but I can tell you what the ancient Assyrians used for hair care products! LOL! 😂

  • Lual Krautter

    I’ve always been interested in biblical fiction, so this story about Asenath sounds very intriguing by Mesu. Would love to win a print copy! Thanks for the interview and opportunity to enter a giveaway! God bless!

  • Becky Hartsfield

    Hey, Deena! Thank you for providing this awesome interview with Mesu! I’ve been an avid fan of her and her writing since 2011 when her first book, Love Amid the Ashes, was released. Every single book she’s written has been a great read AND has encouraged me to do more digging into the Scriptures. I just received In Feast or Famine yesterday so I’m looking forward to diving into that! Speaking of diving, I also highly recommend reading Mesu’s series of Deep-o-tionals. Thanks again! Becky

    • Deena Adams

      Hi, Becky. I’m so glad you stopped by the blog and commented on Mesu’s interview and books. I love your glowing recommendation! I’m sure she does too. 🙂

  • Mesu

    Thank you so much, Deena, for inviting me to chat and for this lovely post on your blog. It was such a pleasure to meet you, and I so appreciate the time you took to share with folks about my Deep-O-Tional companion study as well as Joseph and Asenath’s story in the novel. You’re the BEST! 🥰

  • Mary A. Felkins

    Great to “meet” you, Mesu! It is a JOY to discover the less-often discussed (and even unknown or mysterious) characters in the Bible. We have much to learn from their stories. Fun to read them as they come alive in fiction form 🙂

    • Mesu

      Great to “meet you here, too, Mary! I’m glad you enjoy these mysterious ladies of the Bible as well. Researching their history and then imagining what their lives might have been like has been such a fun part of my world for the past decade! Thanks for saying “hi” today!

  • Caryl Kane

    Biblical fiction is a fabulous way to share spiritual truths in a non-threatening manner.

    • Mesu

      Hey, my friend! Great to hear from you on my new friend Deena’s blog! And, yes, I write biblical fiction with a heart toward “edutainment,” always thinking of my books as a VERY long parable. LOL!
