The Start of a New Biblical Fiction Series | A Light on the Hill by Connilyn Cossette


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.


I have loved every book Connilyn Cossette has written so far, so it should come as no surprise that A Light on the Hill is one of my favorite books of the year (to this point). It begins the Cities of Refuge series and brings biblical history (specifically, events from the book of Joshua) to life in the exquisitely vivid way I so enjoy. With strong characterizations and a dramatic, romantic story in addition to the great historical detail and setting, A Light on the Hill is a book that delivers a page-turning reading experience with a natural, inspirational exploration of God’s truth. Needless to say, I absolutely loved it, highly recommend this new release to fans of biblical fiction, and look forward to seeing where the series goes next in Shelter of the Most High. 


Thanks to the author, I received a complimentary copy of A Light on the Hill and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
