The Law of Moses by Amy Harmon

About The Law of Moses Book:

This was an emotional, inspirational, moving story that has become one of my favorite reads this year.  EVERYONE should read this story.  It’s so much more than a love story.

“Someone found him in a laundry basket at the Quick Wash, wrapped in a towel, a few hours old and close to death. They called him Baby Moses when they shared his story on the ten o’clock news – the little baby left in a basket at a dingy Laundromat, born to a crack addict and expected to have all sorts of problems. I imagined the crack baby, Moses, having a giant crack that ran down his body, like he’d been broken at birth. I knew that wasn’t what the term meant, but the image stuck in my mind. Maybe the fact that he was broken drew me to him from the start.

It all happened before I was born, and by the time I met Moses and my mom told me all about him, the story was old news and nobody wanted anything to do with him. People love babies, even sick babies. Even crack babies. But babies grow up to be kids, and kids grow up to be teenagers. Nobody wants a messed up teenager.
And Moses was messed up. Moses was a law unto himself. But he was also strange and exotic and beautiful. To be with him would change my life in ways I could never have imagined. Maybe I should have stayed away. Maybe I should have listened. My mother warned me. Even Moses warned me. But I didn’t stay away.

And so begins a story of pain and promise, of heartache and healing, of life and death. A story of before and after, of new beginnings and never-endings. But most of all . . . a love story.”

My Five Star Review:

Moses and Georgia were amazing characters to read.  Moses struggled all throughout his life and painted as a way to deal with the things he had no control over.  He didn’t have friends, he didn’t love, and he was just biding his time until he could be out on his own.  Georgia loved her horses, she loved riding them, she loved fixing troubled horses and all she wanted to do was “fix” Moses and be his friend.

This book, of course, was a love story because that’s what I love to read but it also had some mystery, a few heartbreaking emotional ups and downs and a bunch of really good lessons everyone should learn. I would encourage readers of any age to read this book.  It is well worth your time.

You meet a young man named Tag in The Law of Moses who has a different kind of troubled background.  I fell in love with this character as well and was happy to find out his book, The Song of David, is due out in June 2015.  Just a few days away.

I leave you now with the first sentence in the second paragraph of The Law of Moses:  “If I tell you right up front, right in the beginning that I lost him, it will be easier for you to bear.”  Don’t let this sentence scare you.  Jump in and enjoy Moses and Georgia’s story.  I did.
