Publisher's Summary

Sold into slavery by her father and forsaken by the man she was supposed to marry, young Egyptian Kiya must serve a mistress who takes pleasure in her humiliation. When terrifying plagues strike Egypt, Kiya is in the middle of it all.

Choosing to flee with the Hebrews, Kiya finds herself reliant on a strange God and drawn to a man who despises her people. With everything she's ever known swept away, and now facing the trials of the desert, will she turn back toward Egypt or surrender her life and her future to Yahweh?

great story horriable narrator

I loved this story it is the only reason I kept listening, the narrator had a good voice but she read the book like she was in an English speaking class. Every word pronounced so precisely that there was almost know emotion to it but only correct and precise speaking. It was really distracting and took a lot away from the characters.

It had potential but fell a little flat

*Spoiler!*
The writer took liberties about how God parted the water. She also had the main female & male lead make a decision to marry before the female character cleansed her house of pagan idols which would not have happened. There were a few other areas not true to the Bible. One is when God spoke to the multitude around Mt. Sinai. There are no counts of miraculous healing when God spoke then. She also failed to mention that the people were in fear of God’s voice and begged not to hear it again.
When writing about a fictional character surrounded by true instances in the Bible you must be careful not to add or take away to it.

Couldn’t endure it...

The narrator has the most annoying voice. She speaks in a way that I find most annoying in a narrator-she has a whispery voice-as if she is reading a bedtime story-and she pronounces as many syllables as possible in every word. I enjoy Christian fiction and I understand the author’s goal of possibly educating readers who might not be familiar with scripture, but I find it tedious to listen to background stories that don’t really further the plot. I gave up after a little over an hour-I tried to get used to her voice but I found myself clenching my teeth after a few minutes every time I attempted to listen. I won’t be listening to the other books in this series.

Enjoyed this Audiobook

Counted with the Stars painted an exquisite picture of the might and faithfulness of the Lord God who created the Earth and heavens. The story of Exodus came to life through the eyes of an Egyptian girl sold into slavery by her father to pay his debts, and her Redemption by her true Father from above. Great story!

Meh

After reading reading the Cities Of Refuge series I was a little disappointed in this book.

I almost could not get over the reader attempting a male voice. It was incredibly distracting and completely unnecessary.

I loved this story!

When the story started , I was a bit concerned as the narrator seemed hard to listen to. She was very explicit in pronunciation, and lacked expression and warmth... but that definitely changed once other characters were introduced. I can’t wait to listen to book 2 in the series.

really enjoyed her take on The Exodus

I love historical fiction and this was going back to an era that I have only heard/read documentaries.. she brings the egyptian world to life.. and through her smart storyline gives us a possible look into politics, religion, and caste (class) system... many area we still struggle with today... really enjoyed..

Loved It!

I really enjoyed this book and the characters. I wasn't sure at the beginning where it was going but I loved the journey of finding out who God is and His chosen people. Well done.

I didn't want the story to end.

I felt like I was on the lead characters journey and enjoyed the descriptions which vividly brought my imagination of Eqypt & the middle east at the time depicted. I wanted to hear more!

A nice retelling

A pleasant and interesting retelling. I've listened till the end. Got more engaging towards the end. Much better if it's played at 1.05 or even 1.10 speed.

Narration not up to scratch

The narrator sounded like a computer. The storyline was good, but overall this book was not as good as others by this author. Disappointed.
