The Story begins with the exposition about Almah's life before she was asked to live in the palace. She one day finds the princess unconscious near a river from Goshen. She helps the princess and brings her back to her house, not afraid that she might want to kill the babies living there. She gives her grapes and water and lets her re-hydrate. This event in the story is so important because it was the inciting incident.
The second important event is when Yekutiel is adopted by the princess. After secretly figuring out that there was a baby living in Almah's house. She did not want to marry and hated how the baby boys were being killed. So, she adopted one to please both of her problems. And because the baby was still an infant, Ima was told to come back to PI-Ramsess to live with them so she could nurse Yekutiel. And Almah was told to come because she would be the translator. Yekutiel' name was also changed to "Thutmosis" or "Mosis" for short.
And the third important event was towards the end of Part 1 when Queen Nefetari dies and Queen Asetfrenet takes over. She is very harsh and not many people like her but do not speak up because they mourn the loss of Queen Nefetari. And, the Pharaoh declared that ALmah would be adopted and become the Pharaoh's daughter!
The next important event takes place when the Pharaoh orders the Habiru people living in Goshen to become slaves. This is especially hard for Mosis is because he knows part of this slavery and he feels guilty. And at the moment, he struggles with self-identity.
The fifth important event is when Mosis whips Kakemour. After seeing his people being put to work long hours, Mosis felt guilty. He decided he would go out and help them, to try and rekindle his relationship with his family. But Kakemour sees him and knows that he is not viewed as a Khemetian. HE tries to help out his little brother and asks him to whip his younger brother. But, Mosis wouldn't do it and whipped Kakemour.
The sixth important event is at the end of Part 2. In this section, Mosis was very afraid of what Kakemour might do to him, so he killed him with a rock. A lot of guilt came over him and told his three mothers. They were also very afraid because they Khemetians would only assume it was him. So, he and Almah left Egypt before they could catch them.
