Fiction Friday: A Light on the Hill
Biblical Fiction at its Finest
For the next several weeks I’ll be featuring some of the 2019 Carol Award Winners, and let’s kick it off with one of my favorite genres, shall we? The winner of the Historical Romance category is Book I in the Cities of Refuge series by Connilyn Cossette, A Light on the Hill. Here’s a Blurb:
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.
