From the Back Cover
Sold into slavery by her father and forsaken by the man she was supposed to marry, young Egyptian Kiya must serve a mistress who takes pleasure in her humiliation. When terrifying plagues strike Egypt, Kiya is in the middle of it all.
Choosing to flee with the Hebrews, Kiya finds herself reliant on a strange God and drawn to a man who despises her people. With everything she's ever known swept away and now facing the trials of the desert, will she turn back toward Egypt or surrender her life and her future to Yahweh?
"Telling the story from the perspective of a Gentile who traveled alongside the escaping Hebrews, Cossette flips the script on the usual telling of the biblical tale in this promising debut work. Readers will smell the fear on Passover night, feel the wonder of the Red Sea crossing, and sympathize with the starving and thirsting of those escaping in the wilderness. The smart attention to detail and strongly developed characters also bode well for future installments of this Out of Egypt series."--Publishers Weekly
"Her engrossing tale draws on the Book of Exodus and pays exquisite attention to the ancient setting, creating an exotic yet foreboding atmosphere. Biblical fiction buffs, especially those who follow Angela Hunt, Jill Eileen Smith, and Rebecca Kanner, are sure to be swept away by this promising new author."--Library Journal
"The first book in a new series, this was a fascinating look at the Hebrew Exodus through an Egyptian slave's eyes. The message of God's love for everyone is seen throughout the story."--CBA Retailers + Resources

The scenes, the emotion, the challenges and the tension are so well developed that I felt like I was living the story myself.
I loved how the author chose to tell the story from the point of view if a non-Hebrew girl.
To be able to see how profoundly Kiya's character changed made this story all the richer. The author knew exactly how to decipher the conflicts going through this character's heart and the changes she was experiencing weren't taken lightly. Connilyn Cossette wrote with purpose and charisma, entrapping me in the story of people who went thorough so much but were shown through every step a love of a God that surpasses any understanding and that is capable of leaving you speechless, in pure awe.
The only reason I didn't read this book in a day was that I have this thing called a job.
So refreshing...the author wrote an engaging story and beautifully wove it into the scriptural account without changing the facts presented in Moses historical record of the actual events. The attention to detail I found unparalleled and the character development kept me totally engaged, I couldn't put it down. It's been a long time since I have been privileged to enjoy such an excellent read!!!
