Until the Mountains Fall | Book Review


Recently widowed, Rivkah refuses to submit to the Torah law compelling her to marry her husband's brother and instead flees Kedesh, hoping to use her talents as a scribe to support herself. Without the protections of her father, Kedesh's head priest, and the safety of the city of refuge, Rivkah soon discovers that the cost of recklessness is her own freedom.

Malakhi has secretly loved Rivkah for years, but he never imagined his older brother's death would mean wedding her himself. After her disappearance, he throws himself into the ongoing fight against the Canaanites instead of dwelling on all he has lost. But with impending war looming over Israel, Rivkah's father comes to Malakhi with an impossible request.

As the enemies that Rivkah and Malakhi face from without and within Israel grow more threatening each day, is it too late for the restoration their wounded souls seek?

Oh, the Cities of Refuge series just keeps getting better. The detail with which Connilyn Cossette brings the story of Until the Mountains Fall to life is exquisite, and the emotion through it all jumps off the page with startling clarity. It’s a story not to be skipped; whether you’re an avid reader of biblical fiction or one newer to the genre, this is a book to enjoy.

When she flees her home after the death of her husband, Rivkah believes she’s embarking on a better life—yet, as she soon learns, this is not the case. Malakhi, who has loved her for years, has his own set of challenges to face after her desertion. Their story does not unfold easily, but it is nonetheless worthwhile. With effortless grace, biblical truths are infused into their circumstances for a truly beautiful tale.

I absolutely loved Until the Mountains Fall and highly recommend it.

I received a complimentary copy of this book 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.
