I’m fairly new to the Connilyn Cossette Fan club (this series is the first I’ve read), but now that I’m in, I’m not leaving.
About the Book
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?

In My Opinion
Get swept back in time with Connilyn Cossette’s newest in the Cities of Refuge series. Until the Mountains Fall takes readers on a journey from one refuge city to another while allowing them to experience the cultures, dangers, traditions, and daily lives of those who lived during the old testament times.
Rivkah has no idea what her decision to run from home—and her betrothed—will cost her. While she has found a semi-safe place to exist, the road she took to get there is fraught with dangers, disappointments, and disillusions. When Malakhi seeks her out five years after she left with nothing more than a note, her eyes are opened even more to the price she’s paid for her selfish decisions.
Cossette’s descriptive settings, historical details, and sweeping story of love that will fight through every challenge to thrive kept me engaged and rooting for this couple. If you are a fan of Francine Rivers or Mesu Andrews but have not yet picked up this author’s books, don’t wait to experience them.
