Series: Out From Egypt
Alanah, a Canaanite, is no stranger to fighting and survival. When her family is killed in battle with the Hebrews, she disguises herself and sneaks onto the battlefield to avenge her family. The one thing she never counted on was surviving.
Tobiah, a Hebrew warrior, is shocked to find an unconscious, wounded woman among the Canaanite casualties. Compelled to bring her to a Hebrew healer back at their camp, he is soon confronted with a truth he can't ignore: the only way to protect this enemy is to marry her.
Unused to being weak and vulnerable, Alanah submits to the marriage--for now. As she comes to know and respect Tobiah and his people, however, she begins to second-guess her plans of escape. But when her past has painfully unanticipated consequences, the tentative peace she's found with Tobiah, the Hebrews, and Yahweh is shaken to the core. Can Alanah's fierce heart and strength withstand the ensuing threats to her life and all she's come to love?
Sonny5 Stars Out Of 5A life changing and a must read Christian FictionMay 26, 2017SonnyQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 5This book was such a great way to end the series. She said the best for last. Readers will fall in love with Alanah and Tobiah. They understand each other in a way that builds each other up for the glory of God. Their life is an example of how God can use your experiences for his good. Their struggles in understanding each other faith was written very well. Neither made a rash decision to convert. Through observing, trusting and going out on faith we see the parallels with our own coming to know and have a relationship with God.
Connilyn makes you really look at what a tremendous and amazing sight it was for God to walk with his people. You will finish the book with a thirst to understand the Israelites and their relationship with God. This book reminds you that there were human with normal failing and only because of God's grace we are here today.

The bumpy brown exterior hides the fresh and sweet center of a natural source of wake-me-up power, whether nature's caffeine or the crunching chew.
[Copy received from Bethany House Publishers. Opinion is my own.]
Alanah sets out to avenge the deaths of her Canaanite family when her people march against the Israelites who are rumored to be planning on taking over the land. She is wounded badly, and an Israelite man (Tobiah) saves her. Although trust grows between them, Alanah flees when she is faced with the darkness of her own soul. Will she forgive herself? Will she allow Tobiah to forgive her?
Ever since I was a young girl, I have always admired women who chose to forsake normal convention to fight for their beliefs or their family. As soon as I read the book back, I knew I had to read this story. Alanah is everything I hope to be and more with her strengths, smarts, and even weaknesses.
The thing I didn't expect was that I walked away from a fiction book with a deeper non-fiction perspective of God's righteousness. The God of Biblical times and that same God of Today is set apart. He is righteous. Just as he is righteous, I should strain to live a life focused on becoming more and more like him.
I would love for you to read this book and share with me your thoughts on it. Did you like it? Did you sense an over-arching then like mine? What drew you to Alanah?
Bookworm Babblings5 Stars Out Of 5Amazing story of faithMay 25, 2017Bookworm BabblingsQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I received a free copy of this novel from Bethany House in exchange for my honest review.
Alana thought she had lost everything she had and decided to exact revenge on the Hebrews that took the lives of her brothers and father. Instead she gets injured in the battle and forced to wed the Hebrew that rescued her to insure her safety. But when she begins to have unexpected feelings toward her captor and decides to stay, she uncovers the truth about the death of Tobiah's best friend and her life is forever changed.
I loved how this story tied in with the Old Testament story where the Hebrews were at the end of the forty years of wandering in the desert and the collapse of the walls of Jericho. This story was so rich in history and truly depicts what Jesus constantly teaches us; God has a plan and purpose for everything that happens to us. We're just unable to see the big picture when events take an unexpected turn.

Rebecca T5 Stars Out Of 5Exciting finish to the Egyptians travel out of EgyptMay 24, 2017Rebecca TQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 5A bright and shining star in the genre of Biblical historical fiction is Connilyn Cossette. She has penned the story of the Exodus, from the time of the plagues on the Egypt to the Promised Land. Her words take you right into the story, bringing every aspect of that time and the people alive.
In Wings of the Wind, she brings the story of the people in the Out of Egypt series to an end. We have traveled with Kiya, a young Egyptian woman who chooses to flee with the Hebrews when they leave Egypt after the plagues in Counted With the Stars, we rested at the foot of Mount Sinai with Shira, a young Hebrew woman, in Shadow of the Storm, and now we will be making the final push into the Promised Land with Alanah, a young Canaanite woman, in Wings of the Wind.
Alanah, sneaks onto the battlefield dressed as a warrior to avenge the killing of her family by the hated Hebrews. During the ensuing battle, Alanah is wounded but not before her last arrow finds the side of one of her enemies. Pinned under the corpses of two men, Alanah lies under the searing sun aching for a drink of water.
Enter Tobiah, a young Hebrew warrior, who rescues this enemy warrior and takes her back to the Hebrew camp to find a healer for her wounds. This act of compassion on his part will have consequences that affect them both in ways not anticipated by either one, and thus begins their story and a book so good it was near impossible to put down. It is full of action, adventure, love, sorrow, grace and mercy and love. And woven throughout is Yahweh.
Although this book, like the previous ones, can stand alone, Connilyn weaves several of our favorites from Counted with the Stars and Shadow of the Storm into this story of Alanah and Tobiah while giving us a few surprises with some new people later in the story. This book had me picking up my Bible to reread the story and travel through the pages again. Although this is certainly a fictional account, Connilyn was even able to have me taste manna through her words. It has made me slow down and study more these stories.
Here is a teaser from Alanahs story: The girls braided my hair, which was now down to my shoulders, and applied thick cosmetics to my face, a foreign feeling. I preferred the mud-beard I had slathered over my chin as I prepared for battle so many months ago.
I promise, once you start her story, you wont be able to put this book down.
