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.
Moriyah was introduced in the third Out of Egypt book. She was a kidnapped Hebrew who survived the destruction of Jericho but had been branded by a pagan high priestess. She hides her shame behind a veil and stays tucked away in her father's house. Her father finds a man willing to marry her but those plans are crushed when a fatal accident occurs. Moriyah must flee for her life to a city of refuge where she can be safe until a fair trial can be held.
Along the way, she encounters many dangers but learns to rely on Yahweh and listen to His prompting. Her experiences cause her to rethink how she's hidden herself away. I loved how she grew stronger spiritually and emotionally as the story progressed. And I found myself on the edge of my seat, cheering for her to find refuge before it was too late.
Once again, Connilyn Cossette takes a difficult time in Old Testament history and makes it relatable. God, in His grace, knew that His people would be imperfect but made a place of refuge for them to find safety and rest. I love how the cities of refuge point to Jesus, our place of grace and safety.
Moriyah, a young woman that was branded has carried shame because of it. She hides herself inside in her veil. When a terrible incident happens sh runs for her life. As she's on the run she discovers more about herself and she senses and hears God's power.
Don't miss out on this book! I highly recommend.

Both main and secondary characters are strikingly vivid in this book. I remember their feature scenes and personality like I had watched them in a theater.Read more
