Book review for Wings of the Wind
Author Connilyn Cossette
Publisher Bethany House
I love the Bible and that’s why I enjoy Biblical fiction. I long to be transported back to those times and places. I want to become immersed in the story and discover things I didn’t notice before while reading my Bible. The best authors will cause me to love and appreciate God’s Word even more. Connilyn Cossette accomplishes this and more in her thrilling Out From Egypt series. Wings of the Wind is the third, and final book of the series.
I placed all three books of the Out From Egypt series on the table and tried to choose my favorite. Well, turns out I can’t pick just one because I enjoyed traveling along with each of the amazing women of these books.
Counted with the Stars starts the series off in Egypt while the Hebrews are still slaves. It prompted me to think about what caused the Hebrews to find themselves in slavery. I found myself pondering what it would it be like to follow Moses toward freedom, especially having never known freedom. Viewing the events through the eyes of Kiya was amazing.
Shadow of the Storm explores the time that the Hebrews spent at Mt Sinai. What was it like to enter this new unknown life? How did this huge group of people interact with each other? I loved following Shira through the challenging time period after the exodus.
Wings of the Wind begins as the 40 years in the wilderness are almost ended. I was immediately drawn into the story of Alanah, a Canaanite. This book was captivating from the first page. Fascinating story with many surprises along the way.
If you like Biblical fiction you should get your hands on this series.
I am looking forward to more from this talented author.
