Connilyn Cossette: Until the Mountains Fall

By Kelly Bridgewater

Recently widowed, Rivkah refuses to submit to the Torah law compelling her to marry her husband's brother and instead flees Kedesh, hoping to use her talents as a scribe to support herself. Without the protections of her father, Kedesh's head priest, and the safety of the city of refuge, Rivkah soon discovers that the cost of recklessness is her own freedom.

Malakhi has secretly loved Rivkah for years, but he never imagined his older brother's death would mean wedding her himself. After her disappearance, he throws himself into the ongoing fight against the Canaanites instead of dwelling on all he has lost. But with impending war looming over Israel, Rivkah's father comes to Malakhi with an impossible request.

As the enemies that Rivkah and Malakhi face from without and within Israel grow more threatening each day, is it too late for the restoration their wounded souls seek?

My Thoughts:

Until the Mountains Fall by Connilyn Cossette is a wonderful story of Biblical proportions. I enjoy spending time in ancient Biblical times and learning more about little parts of the Bible that aren't that well-known. Cossette is a wonderful storyteller. She captures the audience with her descriptions and her ability to climb into the character's minds and lives. Like I have stated before, I can't imagine all the research that goes into writing Biblical fiction. I really enjoyed watching the transformation of Rivkah as she learns to love Malakhi He was definitely a hero worth keeping an eye on. I loved how he would do anything to protect  Rivkah, even offer to work as a servant to keep an eye on her. These characters were admirable. I really enjoyed this novel and can't wait for the fourth book in the series.

I received a complimentary copy of Until the Mountains Fall by Connilyn Cossette from Bethany House Publishers, but the opinions stated are all my own.

My Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
