Publisher's Summary

Having escaped Egypt with the other Hebrews during the Exodus, Shira is now living in freedom at the foot of Mount Sinai. When the people rebel by worshipping a golden idol, the ensuing chaos gives Shira an unexpected opportunity to assist a midwife. When the experience awakens a new desire in her, she defies her mother's wish for her to continue in the family weaving trade and pursues her heart's calling as an apprentice midwife.

But when a delivery goes horribly wrong, Shira finds herself in an impossible situation and bound to a man who betrayed her. As contention between the Hebrew tribes and the foreigners fans the flames of another dangerous rebellion, Shira comes face to face with the long-hidden pain of her past. Can she let go of all that has defined her to embrace who she truly is and believe in a hopeful future?

This was worth a read but not very exciting.

This book was hard to keep up with the different characters because of the way it was written. It was Very slow starting and the story was drawn out too long. It got wearisome at times, because Ms Cossette would make an event take so long to advance. The narrator, Sarah Mollo-Christensen was pretty good. She has the ability to do different ages believably. I was disappointed that in this story, Biblically documented miracles, if mentioned, were treated as banal as a regular day. I cannot believe anyone, much less a group of people, would be so blasé about the miracles they experienced.

Shadow of the Storm

Wow, incredible!!!! I first thought the book far too long, drawn out in sections, but I couldn’t seem to stop listening. Also, thought Shera was far too fearful for my blood, but still, couldn’t stop listening. I hated Devora for a long minute, but still, I could not stop listening to the book. Kira was my favorite in the first book and I think I wanted to read more of her in the second, but still, I kept listening.
This was absolutely great!!! The author grabbed my heart and turned my passions upside down, far more than I can ever articulate. And, I thoroughly loved the author’s ability to keep biblical history and storyline at the forefront. AWESOME!!!
The spirit of Forgiveness is ALWAYS my heart and Shera carried that spirit, though fearful, throughout much of the book, she showed forth great strength that I as a reader so embraced and admired. Awesome AWESOME read. :)

Amazing story

Captured my attention throughout the book, I found myself wanting to know what will happen next, which makes for an excellent story line. I will listen to more of connilyn’s books, it builds my faith and has much underlying truth built in. God does truly heal peoples broken hearts, one day at a time, one step at a time.

wonderful

this story starts out slow. if it wasn't for the fact that it had characters from the first story, I wouldn't have finished the book. However, after the first chapter or two, I was hooked and had a hard time putting it down.
This book is a wonderful story of forgiveness and God's love for all.

Excellent continuance of the story......

This 2nd book in the series is just as good as the 1st one. We loved learning more about Shira and her struggles and faith. This series is sooo good! Wish we could give it 10 stars! And on to the 3rd book!

Excellent story

Narrator is good, nice low male voice but a bit more emotion would be nice. Didn't quite ever lose the fact it was narrator.

Love Historical Fiction

Great story that fills in so many details of OT life. The only drawback is the robotic male voices. The narrator does a great job on the female voices.

Good themes, Shira (protagonist) whines a lot

This is 2 of 3 in a series. The first one did not have the main character whine as much as Shira does here. Connilyn made Shira predictable… Shira is faced with a challenge. Shira questions herself in a long monologue. Shira decides to do the right thing. This happens excessively. However, I appreciate the over-arching theme of forgiveness. I appreciate Connilyn’s turns off phrase. I appreciate the historical insight she includes. I’ll listen to the next one but I’m hoping there’s less introspective monologues. (The narrator is good.)

New Favorite Author

This is a well written Christian fiction novel. I was very interested in this book, when first started listening, I did not realize it was the second book of a series, but i didn’t need to know, the story line was different than the first book in the series. I was always engrossed in the story. Makes me realize the lies I listen to about myself. God loves me no matter what I think I am. This book will help a lot of women to overcome negative thoughts about themselves.

Better than book one

The reader attempting to read in a male voice is grating to say the least. I did enjoy this story line much better than book one though.

The Cities Of Refuge series was just so good that I'm struggling to find that same connection to this series.

Fantastic, so good I cried when it ended!

An absolutely amazing story. I loved it!! The drama was a bit too heart-wrenching for me at times but it was very engaging. I highly recommend it. If you don't like the narrator listen to it at 1.05 speed. Makes it much easier to listen to and follow.

Great book

Brings the bible alive as the story is about the time in the wilderness.
