This week I’m going to do something that is just a wee bit different. This isn’t a book I’ve had sitting around for a time waiting for it’s chance in my hands. This isn’t a book that has been a fraction of space taken up in my Kindle library. This is a book that hasn’t actually hit the shelves … yet. This is a book by an author who has yet to bring me a book that I didn’t love. This is a book I can’t wait to read and I want you to ‘can’t wait to read’ it too.
A Light on the Hill (Cities of Refuge Book #1) by Connilyn Cossette
Published by Baker Books on February 6th 2018
Genres: Ancient World, Christian, Fiction, Historical, Romance
Seven years ago, Moriyah was taken captive in Jericho and branded with the mark of the Canaanite gods. Now the Israelites are experiencing peace in their new land, but Moriyah has yet to find her own peace. Because of the shameful mark on her face, she hides behind her veil at all times and the disdain of the townspeople keeps her from socializing. And marriage prospects were out of the question . . . until now.
Her father has found someone to marry her, and she hopes to use her love of cooking to impress the man and his motherless sons. But when things go horribly wrong, Moriyah is forced to flee. 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.
