"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

This is one of those books. It's that good.
Faithful readers of Connilyn Cossette already agree that she's an outstanding storyteller. However, she just surpassed herself in this extraordinary book. Moriyah's life has been filled with fear and tragedy. She makes an unintentional, terrible mistake and finds herself fleeing to a City of Refuge to escape the man that wants to kill her. The story of her flight to one of the Cities of Refuge is suspenseful, compelling, and absorbing. Moriyah has become one of my favorite fictional characters.
I also loved the setting of the book. Although I've read many times in the Bible about the Cities of Refuge and understood their purpose, I learned so much more about them as I read through the book. I appreciate Ms. Cossette's research and attention to historical detail.
If you love novels set in Biblical times, this book is a must-read for you. I am already looking forward to the next book in this series.
Thank you, Connilyn Cossette, for this beautiful story of redemption.
This book picks up 7 years after "Wings of the Wind". Moriyah, who is the main character of the story, lives a quiet life at home in her father's vineyard. The brand she received while a prisoner in Jericho 7 years prior has stirred rumors and kept Moriyah fearful of bringing shame to her family. So, she covers herself with a veil and does not venture away from home very often. Her world is turned on end one day when her father advises that he has found a husband for her. Through a series of events, the meeting of his family does not go according to plan and Moriyah has to flee for her life to one of the newly set cities of refuge. Her journey takes her through physical and emotional dangers. She forges new friendships and finds love along the way, including renewing her love of Yahweh, her Creator. Through the time, Moriyah discovers the true meanings of mercy, justice, love and sacrifice, as well as what it means to give up everything you know and love for the will of your God and how He brings it back as a blessing. There were a lot of twists and turns -some I didn't see coming, but the main one I did - though that was a relief, not a disappointment. Very well written to keep me engaged. Well developed characters and excellent dialogue kept the flow going. I got this one read in less than 3 days (and those were work days!).
This book had many quote-able moments, but the redemption towards the end was my favorite: "Just as the vineyard had been reborn after being burned by the Canaanites and made to flourish again beneath my father's tender care, my own charred years would be redeemed by the graceful hand of the One who created me". I look forward to the next book where we will see a minor character in this book as the major character - I'm anxious to see the growth and development, and also to see how Moriyah becomes "a light in the dark places". Another amazing, well researched, enjoyable, challenging and uplifting read by Ms. Cossette. I highly recommend!
I received a complimentary copy of the book and a favorable review was not required. The opinions are my own.
