After being branded during the battle of Jericho, Moriyah has had no prospects for marriage–until now. She hopes to please the man, but things go horribly wrong and she is forced to flee for her life. Seeking safety at one of the Levitical cities of refuge, she is unprepared for the dangers she faces, and the enemies–and allies–she encounters on her way.
“I do not know the mind of the Eternal One, Moriyah. But neither do you. He has preserved your life this far, in the most unlikely of situations. Perhaps He has a unique purpose for you, in spite of what you endured. Or perhaps because of it.” He took my face in his hands, his brown eyes intent on mine. “But I do know this, if he commands you to speak truth, you must do so. No matter the cost.”
Connilyn Cossette has been a favorite of mine since her first book came out, and I am surprised at how she tops herself each time she writes a new one!! I didn’t like biblical fiction until I tried her Out Of Egypt series….Then, wow!!! All of her writing delivers like a wonderful fiction book, but also makes me want to read the Bible and just worship Him more.
A Light On The Hill is the first installment in the Cities Of Refuge series, documenting the events following after the Israelites captured Jericho in the book of Joshua. The story was amazing, and it felt intricately woven….Like she truly poured all her heart, soul, and energy into crafting the perfect plot twists and characters for Moriyah.
The romance felt natural, the action was perfection, and I honestly couldn’t put it down for very long without starting to think about what happened next!
I also loved the travel aspect of this book. I don’t normally read that type of story, but it was refreshing and exciting to follow her along, especially with so much detail to the landscaping.
Overall, it was just a solid book. I loved it! I can’t wait for the next one coming out in October of this year.
