From Amazon~The daughter of a pagan high priest, Sofea finds solace from her troubles in the freedom of the ocean. But when marauders attack her village on the island of Sicily, she and her cousin are taken across the sea to the shores of Canaan.
Eitan has lived in Kedesh, a City of Refuge, for the last eleven years, haunted by a tragedy in his childhood and chafing at the boundaries placed on him. He is immediately captivated by Sofea, but revealing his most guarded secret could mean drawing her into the danger of his past.
As threats from outside the walls loom and traitors are uncovered within, Sofea and Eitan are plunged into the midst of a murder plot. Will they break free from the shackles of the past in time to uncover the betrayal and save their lives and the lives of those they love?
My Comments~This book, Shelter of the Most High, by Connilyn Cossette, grabs the reader from the get go and never loses its grip. Set in the obscure times between the first settlement of the land of Israel when the Patriarch Joshua still lived and before all the former occupants had been conquered, this story throws the reader into that uncertain era when nothing was assured. Compellingly told and amazingly accurate to Scripture and archeological evidence, Shelter of the Most High, is not a book to be missed. Loved it!
