Publisher's Summary

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.

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.

Another great story!

I'm always sad when the story ends. I enjoy her fictional pieces of the story to blend in with the scriptures. I'll admit that I had gotten used to the other narrator and I enjoyed how the last book had a male and female narrator, I hope she will go back to that. However, being a sabbath keeper and lover of the bible, I always learn something new that gives me a new insight to the stories in the bible.

Story good, narrator annoying.

Good story, but I think it's my least favorite of the series, partly b/c of the story and so much "running", but mostly b/c of the narrator, who pronounces Yahweh as it if rhymes with "bleh" (and other names seem mispronounced as well), and who can't seem to read a sentence or finish a thought without pausing and taking a breath. Super annoying.

Biblical history comes to life

A beautiful Biblical historical story comes to life with some leniency. Wonderfully written, draws you in and keeps your attention, you i’ll laugh, cry and be in awe at times! Looking forward to the next in this series, thank you Connilyn!

Great Story!

This was a really good, historical novel, relevant to biblical times. I love to listen to Rachel Botchan narrate a book.

Marvelous!

This book is an awesome spin off from the Out of Egypt series. Cossette is a gifted author and not only encourages through her words, but also educated the reader about the Bible and Jewish culture.

My only criticism is the narrator Rachel Botchen. I have enjoyed books from her in the past, however, she mispronounced Yahweh and Moriyah throughout the book. It’s imperative for a narrator to research and understand pronunciations for a book series or a spin off. In book three from the Out of Egypt series Moriyah’s name was pronounced as “Mariah” and not “Maria”. This irritated me throughout the book and is an egregious oversight.

I look forward to the next book in the series.

Courage Always Succeeds

What a great story of courage & trust. We CAN do all things through Christ. When we believe in God & listen to His voice, we can move mountains & achieve goals we thought were impossible. I love the way this writer brings that out over & over. This is a dynamic story & so well written, this is an awe inspiring book! I am anxious to read more of her books. Well Done!

Amazing!

This is the 4th bk Ive listened to and I was not disappointed. A great weaver of people places & events. You really feel like you are in the story & want to talk to characters and say "hey watch out, be careful dont trust him...."
SPOILER ALERT:

The scared hands pulling (her) into safety made me think of Jesus nailed pierced hands pulling me into safety....
Looking forward to next book!!!!

The Great Story is Worth the Not Great Narration

I’m so sad to have this book end! I’ve loved the Out From Egypt series and then A Light on the Hill.
This is such an excellent story!
I do feel like there was too much moving around and not enough of the time between the trial and during the trial, but that’s okay!
The narrator, however was awful!
She has to stop and take breaths in the middle of a lot of sentences, and she even has to correct herself in one near the end. She accidentally says the wrong word, you can’t miss it. She also makes like NO effort to voice act. She’ll throw in the little kids voices, but everyone else is just her voice. The Out From Egypt narrator was WORLDS better, actually making an effort to make every character different. ALSO, she mispronounces like all of the names. Even Yahweh... like seriously?? I’ll be straight up avoiding the hooks she narrates in the future. Huge bummer.

But the story is worth dealing with the narrator!! Can’t read the first 3 and then not this one, obviously..
