Publisher's Description

In the Depth of the Storm's Shadow, Only Truth Can Light Her Way

Having escaped Egypt with the other Hebrews during the Exodus, Shira is now living in freedom at the foot of Mt. Sinai, upon which rests the fiery glowing Cloud containing the shekinah glory of God. When the people disobey Yahweh and build a golden idol, the ensuing chaos gives Shira an unexpected opportunity to learn the arts of midwifery. Although her mother wishes for her to continue in the family weaving trade, Shira's gifts shine brightest when she assists with deliveries. In defiance of her mother, Shira pursues her heart's calling to become an apprentice midwife.

When a delivery goes horribly wrong, Shira finds herself bound to a man who betrayed her, the caretaker of three young children, and the target of a vengeful woman whose husband was killed by Shira's people, the Levites. As contention between the Hebrew tribes and the foreigners fans the flames of another dangerous rebellion, Shira will come face-to-face with the heartbreak of her past that she has kept hidden for so long. How can she let go of all that has defined her to accept the love she's denied herself and embrace who she truly is?

    I loved the first book in this series, Counted with the Stars. I couldn't wait to read this book. I was a little disappointed that this book was about Shira, not about Kiya. I loved Kiya's character in the first book and I wanted to read more of her story. I still enjoyed reading about Shira. This book didn't catch my interest the same way Counted with the Stars did, but I still loved it. The story was very interesting and unique and I loved the plot twists throughout the book. It was nice to see a different side to Shira and to read her story. I am glad that we also got to read about some of our favorite characters from the first book. The story is so immersive and Connilyn writes with so much detail you get transported to the story. The story line between Dvorah, Ayal, and Kiya reminded me of a soap opera and it was filled with drama and twists and turns. I wanted to keep reading to find out what would happen next. It was a great sequel to Counted with the Stars. I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series and I recommend this series to anyone who enjoys historical fiction or historical biblical fiction.

    I received this book for free from Bethany House Publishers for my honest review.

    I'm going to start with I loved this book so much I went out and bought the first. Connilyn Cossette wrote a beautiful biblical fiction that kept me up late finishing. Rich in historical details, Shadow of the Storm is wonderfully written with amazing details and characters. Connilyn did a great job writing mixing a story of self discovery and romance.

    Though you don't need to read the first book to understand the second, be forewarned you do get "spoilers" by doing so. It's not only a story of self discovery but it is also a well written romance.

    This is definitely a book I would recommend to read!

    I received this book in exchange for my honest review. All opinions expressed are my own.

    Shadow of the Storm is a wonderful continuation of the Israelite's journey out of Egypt. In the first book of this series we met Kiya and Shira as they serve side by side in an Egyptian household as maid servants to a harsh mistress. Thrust together by unlikely circumstances, the former noble (Kiya) and the Hebrew slave (Shira) begin to break down the walls that separate their people and form a tentative friendship. When the Hebrews flee Egypt after the harrowing plagues sent by Yahweh, Kiya joins them.

    Now, in this follow-up novel, Shira takes centre stage as she struggles to find a path for herself in this new world under Yahweh. Shadow of the Storm is a truly riviting story and I loved it from start to finish. It brought to life a piece of the Exedos Bible story in a way that I've never experienced. Within these pages you will get a brilliant look into what life might have been like during the year that the Hebrews dwelt under the mountain in the wilderness while magnificent events took place such as the building of the golden calf, the formation of the ten commandments, the honoring of the Levites, and the building of the Lord's tabernacle.

    I can not say enough good things about this author or her stories. Absolutely wonderful books and seriously, a MUST read. They are so well written and you can't help but fall hopelessly in love with the characters. Brilliant work.

    Thank-you to Baker Publishing House and Graf Martin Communications for a complimentary copy of this book.

    With a stunning cover and a unique storyline, I was hooked every time I sat down to read Shadow in the Storm. It picks up where the last book finished nicely, but it also stands alone enough for new readers to enjoy. My heart instantly went out to Shira for all her dreams and her scars. She thinks shes weak and unwanted, but her strength of spirit and the support of those closest to her changes her life. Its a journey worth reading.

    Im really starting to become a fan of Biblical fiction. I loved how the author incorporated real accounts from Scripture into the lives of her fictional characters. Getting to see the repercussions of the people worshiping the golden calf through Shiras eyes was fascinating.Getting to see what life would have been like for the Hebrews through the wilderness was really eye-opening. I learned a lot through the story and the historical details made me want to study more from that time period.

    There were several surprises through the book and I couldnt wait to see how it ended. Of course, I wont spoil it for you, but I do encourage you to pick up this incredible series. Its really unlike anything else Ive read. This ones another keeper. 🙂

    I received a free copy from the publisher. No review, positive or otherwise, was requiredall opinions are my own.

    I was obsessed with this series before it even released and it has lived up to my expectations. The writing is evocative and pulls you to the base of Mt. Sinai. The research Cossette puts into each story is apparent and the characters are so easy to care about.

    Living in the Shadow of God's glory, Shira is trying to find her place in this new life. Longing for a family of her own, she finds contentment in her new calling as a midwife. With tendrils of disquiet winding through the camp, Shira fights to hold on the broken pieces of her life. Will she have the strength to turn them over to the Lord?

    Shira was a favorite character since first meeting her in Counted With the Stars and I was so excited to finally unravel some of the hinted threads of her story. She has such a quiet strength, although she does not believe it of herself, and her struggle to navigate the new circumstances she finds herself in are captivating.

    I'm eagerly awaiting the conclusion to this series so I can meet Alanah, the Canaanite and Tobiah, the Hebrew warrior. I can't wait to read what's next from this author.
