Publisher's Description

A Story of Love, Desperation, and Hope During a Great Biblical Epoch

Sold into slavery by her father and forsaken by the man she was supposed to marry, young Egyptian Kiya must serve a mistress who takes pleasure in her humiliation. When terrifying plagues strike Egypt, Kiya is in the middle of it all.

To save her older brother and escape the bonds of slavery, Kiya flees with the Hebrews during the Great Exodus. She finds herself utterly dependent on a fearsome God she's only just beginning to learn about, and in love with a man who despises her people. With everything she's ever known swept away, will Kiya turn back toward Egypt or surrender her life and her future to Yahweh?

    Viewing the fascinating history of plagues & the exodus through the eyes of a foreigner along with characters who stirred every possible emotion offered a depth of resonance not typical for a debut novel. As a teenager, the books I loved most were the ones where I stepped into the story & became the main character. As an adult this rare & intimate bond has been much harder to find. However, Connilyns writing style offered this wondrous experience. From the first scene, Kiyas plight grasped my interest & pulled me into ancient Egypt. Yet, many of the other actors were just as enthralling. When I met Shira I became captivated, along with Kiya, by her strength, kindness, & grace. Because of Connilyns expertise in crafting a three-dimensional cast, along with Kiya I was both fascinated by & fearful of Ebens fierce ruggedness, delighted by Liats lovable naivety, seared & then angered by Tekurhas wrathful jealousy, marveled at Jumos immeasurable value, & overwhelmed with Mosheshs (Moses) commanding yet compassionate nature. Most wonderful of all, Yahweh Himself inhabited these pages. As He wooed the evasive & skeptical Kiya, whose heart had been hollowed out by the false gods of her youth, His majestic & merciful love blossomed anew in those places where the weariness of this world had also emptied my soul. Still united with Kiya, the ending delivered fresh hope & healing along with a sigh of satisfaction. In the best kind of conclusion, Connilyn piqued my curiosity, left me anxious to continue this wonderful journey, & prompted heartfelt gratitude upon discovering there will be two additional books in this series. This fabulous story earned Connilyn a place in my must-read author list!

    Counted with the Stars by Connilyn Cossette is a fascinating glimpse into the life of Kiya, an Egyptian who flees with the Israelites. The authors prose was lovely, the story was thought-provoking, and the Biblical narrative was portrayed in a way that honored Scripture. I found myself drawn into a world where the God of the Israelites protected and provided for His children in miraculous ways. This story sparked thoughts of my Gods faithfulness and greatness, both then and now.

    Kiya, along with a host of other characters, were drawn with artistic strokes. Relatable and multifaceted, each character made me feel he or she could exist in my own world. The book follows the plagues of Egypt and ends before the golden calf is constructed, and each page is worth reading to glimpse a hint of the star-like beauty of the story. Although set in a backdrop of the darkest night, the lights shimmer like a candle flame in a tunnel.



    I hope you enjoy reading this wonderful story.



    In Christ,

    A stunning depiction of an age-old story, told with such a fresh perspective I couldn't put it down. The depth of the author's research is commendable and obvious as she weaves her tale against the backdrop of an ancient culture in bondage to false gods. I loved this novel not just for the characters and the plot, but for the way it made me grateful anew that we serve a loving God who demands no tribute, no sacrifice, but a contrite heart eager to reconcile with our Creator. Can't wait to read the rest of this series from Connilyn Cossette!

    Wow. In all the times that Ive read the Biblical account of the plagues, not once do I recall wondering about the Egyptian perspective. This story completely intrigued and captivated me.

    Kiya enjoys a life of comfort and ease as the daughter of a wealthy Egyptian businessman until he loses everything and sells her into slavery. Kiyas new mistress is determined to humiliate her but she doesnt break.

    Then the plagues hit and what hope do the Egyptians have against the unknown and unseen God of the Hebrews? Kiya keeps putting one foot in front of the other, doggedly searching for a way to save herself and her family.

    Welcome to the IMAX level story experience, reader friends!!! I encourage you to pick up this title and experience a richer understanding of the places and culture from the Exodus account.

    What an impactful debut novel! Connilyn Cossette has trumpeted her arrival to the line up "must read authors" with a decisive and gorgeously written first novel. I was very impressed with Counted With The Stars, and my only disappointment was that it had to end. Since finishing this book a week ago I have had a hard time not going back to re-read it.

    I am, undeniably, a huge fan of Biblical fiction. What I really liked about Connilyn Cossette's interpretation of the Hebrew exodus from Egypt was the Biblical accuracy and her truthfulness in staying with the time and culture of her setting. To be honest, this Bible story has never come to life for me more than during this last week when I read this novel. In the past when I've read this Biblical account of the exodus I read over the plagues with a grimace and continued on reading - I never really stopped to think what it would have been like to actually live through those plagues. Thanks to this novel, I was immersed in the terrifying reality of what it would have been like for an unknowing Egyptian to be at the mercy of Yahweh's punishment upon pharaoh. There would have been so many Egyptians who had no clue as to what was happening and why; this novel really showed the terror of the unknown God of the Hebrews and the pain and suffering that would have resulted from the onslaught of the plagues.

    In addition to loving the re-telling of the Bible story, I also really enjoyed the fictional character of Kiya. Her story, interwoven into the Bible story, is a riveting one. The tragic twists in her life and the dramatic fall from being a wealthy nobleman's daughter to a slave makes for incredibly good reading. I loved her as a character and felt that hers were the perfect eyes to see the story through.

    I would definitely recommend this book and am looking forward to the second book in this series when it is released, "Shadow of the Storm".

    Thank-you to Graf Martin Communications Inc and Baker Publishing House for a complimentary copy of "Counted with the Stars" in exchange for my honest opinion.
