Happy Monday! The purpose of memorable Monday is to showcase a book that you’ve read in the past and share how/why it has stuck with you.
This week I’m featuring:
With the final book in this series (Like Flames in the Night) releasing soon on March 3, I couldn’t help but go back to the beginning and spotlight the first one. If you haven’t read any of Connilyn Cossette’s books you simply must or your life is sadly incomplete. Her books are amazing and I love how she is able to bring Biblical times to life right before your eyes. She has quickly secured a spot on my must-read author list <3
About the Book:
Though Israel has found relative peace, Moriyah has yet to find her own. Atttempting to avoid the scorn of her community, she’s spent the last seven years hiding behind the veil she wears. Underneath her covering, her face is branded with the mark of the Canaanite gods, a shameful reminder of her past captivity in Jericho and an assurance that no man will ever want to marry her.
When her father finds a widower who needs a mother for his two sons, her hopes rise. But when their introduction goes horribly wrong, Moriyah is forced to flee for her life. Seeking safety at one of the newly established Levitical cities of refuge, she is wildly unprepared for the dangers she will face and the enemies—and unexpected allies—she will encounter on her way.
