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?

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.

kad1964IndianaAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5A Beautiful Story That Is a Blessing to Read!May 23, 2017kad1964IndianaAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Wings of the Wind is the third book in Connilyn Cossette's Out From Egypt series, and as with her first two books, I could hardly put it down!
In this installment, we meet Alanah, a Canaanite seeking revenge for the loss of her father and brothers to the Hebrews. Disguised as a male soldier, she is injured in battle and rescued by a Hebrew, Tobias. Their story together is a beautiful tale of redemption, forgiveness, and spiritual transformation that was a blessing to read.
Surprises in Wings of the Wind tie it to the other books in the series, making it extra special to those who have read them. Yet even though I highly recommend all of the Out From Egypt books, it is not necessary to have read the first two to become immersed in this story.
While enjoying Connilyn Cossette's books, I have been amazed by the depth of research that clearly went into shaping her highly relatable characters and their surroundings. Reading the series has given me a better understanding of and renewed interest in this Old Testament period, and Cossette has become one of my very favorite authors.
I highly recommend Wings of the Wind and give it a well-earned five stars. I would give it more stars if the rating system allowed it! I received a complimentary copy from the publisher, but a favorable review was not required. The opinions expressed here are entirely my own opinion.

Tobiah is a steadfast and devout Hebrew warrior. His dedication to his family is surpassed only by his commitment to obey Yahweh in every way.
Although the majority of the characters within this story are fictional, the thorough research and care taken with the biblical accounts are superb. The emotional and spiritual depth combined with vivid visuals and skilled storytelling send this book straight to my all time favorites.

I enjoyed Wings of the Wind. I thought it was a good piece of Biblical Fiction. The author's vision of how the people lived during those times were vivid and I felt like I was right there living among them. I instantly fell in love with Tobiah. His love of faith was admirable and how he wanted to protect Alanah was sweet.
I would most definitely recommend Wings of the Wind, as well as, the rest of the Out From Egypt series.
A well-deserved 5+ stars.
