Today I’m featuring:
The priest’s kohl-lined eyes glazed over as he held the iron brand in the center of cedar-fueled flames. Pressing my back against the column I was tied to, I clawed my nails into the wood.
I’ve had this book on my TBR pile for quite some time, but it’s finally made it to my next read. Sending a special thanks to my friend Christian Fiction Girl for my copy as I won it on a giveaway on her page 🙂 Next month I will also be part of a tour for the 2nd book in the series Shelter of the Most High. Definitely excited to dig in!
About the Book:
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.
