    A Light on the Hill is a captivating story of redemption and second chances set against the dramatic backdrop of the Israelite settling the Promised Land post-Exodus. I'm a bit behind on Cossette's novels, as this is the first I've read since her debut, Counted With the Stars. While I ...

    This book takes place right after the birth of Israel and during the wars for possession of the land by the Hebrews. Moriyah, at age 13, was captured by the Midianites during a war and taken to Jericho where she was turned over to the Temple priestess and branded as a prostitute. After...

    Oh, my goodness! Where do I begin with this story? Connilyn Cossette is an author I watch new releases for. Each story grows on the next and the world just blossom. A Light on a Hill is the first of this new series, Cities of Refuge. It is a bit of spin off from her previous seri...

    I wasn?t sure if Connilyn Cossette could top herself, but I enjoyed A Light on the Hill just as much as her previous release. She?s become one of my favorite authors, so I was eager to get my hands on her new series opener. I?ve never read any other Biblical or historical fiction...

    A Light on the Hill is the first book in Connilyn Cossette?s new Cities of Refuge series. I think some of the characters featured in her previous Out from Egypt series, Counted with the Stars, Shadow of the Storm, and Wings of the Wind. I haven?t read any of the Out of Egypt series...

    One of my favorite new genres is biblical fiction. It is taking factual events from the Bible, and creating a bit of a backstory to the characters we know about, but not everything about. It might even use a major biblical event as the setting for the novel, such as Connilyn Cossette h...

    This book is a must-read for lovers of biblical fiction. You will walk in time and place with the young woman Moriyah, hearing her heart, feeling her fear, knowing her Yaweh. This book is full of action, faith and fear. It will leave you with much to ponder in its wake.  This book ...

    A Light on the Hill by Connilyn Cossette is a unique and beautiful read! It is the first book to a new series called CITIES OF REFUGE, but it does connect to the debut series by this author. In fact, we meet the main character of this book, Moriyah, in Wings of the Wind! Connilyn Co...

    Connilyn Cossette's writing style is so lyrical it begs to be read out loud. Exquisite descriptions about life and customs in biblical times -- I swear this author must have a time machine because she gets it right every time. At least, I feel like it's right for the time period. Even ...

    Moriyah is the only unmarried daughter of a successful vineyard owner, but she hides the scar on her face with a veil, the reminder of when she was kidnapped and taken to a pagan temple before the walls of Jericho fell granting her, Alanah, and Rahab freedom. The brand burned into her ...

    This book is my 20th book of the year. That is a mini milestone on the quest to the larger goal. It wasn?t meant to be my 20th book. Life went sideways and got really messy. I?m still in sideways messy mode and will be for a while but I?m also working hard at finding a new balanc...

    Cities of Refuge. It is not a topic in the bible that I have read much about, but the history surrounding it fascinated me. This is a new series by this author, but previous characters from other books came up very briefly. This is a completely new series though. I will say that I was ...

    For some reason, Biblical fiction is not my go-to genre. But, since giving her first a try, I can?t read one of Connilyn Cosette?s books without fangirling. I know I need to put everything on hold because I?ll be useless until I finish them. Moriyah has been branded by shame,...

    Having read Connilyn Cossette's prior series, "Out From Egypt", I expected her latest novel "A Light on the Hill" to be equally well written. But not only is this novel just as good as her prior books, it even surpasses them and in my estimation is her finest one to date. The story ...

    Cossette has an extraordinary way of bringing Canaan 1406 BC to life. She paints a vivid canvas of the people, places and landscapes. I enjoyed the plot twist, romance and adventures. I did feel like Moriyah was not remorseful by what happened to Raviv?s sons. I understood her desper...

    I am so thankful Connilyn Cossette is not hiding her talent underneath a bushel and instead sharing her gift of writing with readers. Her fourth novel, A Light on the Hill, is the beginning of a new series: Cities of Refuge. A deviation from her prior series that became quickly appa...

    This book is the first in Connilyn Cossette's new series Cities of Refuge. If you are new to this author, let me first tell you that her books are amazing! But I truly believe, to get the best experience, all her books should be read in order. This might be a new series, but I consi...

    Oh my goodness! Where do I even begin?! A Light on the Hill is the first book that I?ve read by Connilyn Cossette and it won?t be my last! I recently found out that this is an indirect continuation of Wings of the Wind (from the Out of Eygpt series) which I have immediately added t...

    ?I do not know the mind of the Eternal One, Moriyah. But neither do you. He has preserved your life this far, in the most unlikely of situations. Perhaps He has a unique purpose for you, in spite of what you endured. Or perhaps because of it.? He took my face in his hands, his brow...

    Why I Choose This Book: Folks. Miss Connilyn's writing is amazing. Goodness, y'all. Her Biblical fiction has drawn me in from the very first page every single time. When her last trilogy ended I was really sad because I REALLY wanted there to be a fourth book that featured one of th...

    Wow! A new author to add to my list of favorites. A Light on the Hill is a fantastic beginning to a new series. The setting is 1399 BC Israel centering on the beginnings of the cities of refuge mentioned in Joshua 20. I was not prepared for the immediate immersion when I as the re...

    Connilyn Cossette has brought history to life in a powerful way through the eyes of Moriyah. With a traumatic childhood leading to poor prospects for a prosperous future, Moriyah has surely been dealt a difficult hand. My heart immediately went out to her and left me engrossed in her j...
