A LIGHT ON THE HILL by Connilyn Cossette, Review by Winnie Thomas

I haven’t read much Biblical fiction, but I’d heard so many good things about Connilyn Cossette’s books that I decided to give them a try. I was overwhelmed with the emotions I felt while reading A Light on the Hill. The author is a master at bringing Biblical fiction to life. 

From the descriptions of the settings to the realistic and vividly drawn characters and suspenseful situations, she crafts a tale that is riveting and memorable. The emotionally-charged, multi-layered storyline kept me turning pages far into the night. Cossette’s perfect pitch author voice gave the story authenticity, and her obviously deep research into her subject matter whetted my appetite to learn more about this time period. I’m looking forward to more books in her City of Refuge series.
A Light on the Hill is filled with suspense, intrigue, danger, and romance, with threads of mercy, hope, and faith seamlessly woven in to make this an unforgettable story.

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.
