Shelter of the Most High
The daughter of a pagan high priest, Sofea finds solace from her troubles in the freedom of the ocean. But when marauders attack her village on the island of Sicily, she and her cousin are taken across the sea to the shores of Canaan.
Eitan has lived in Kedesh, a City of Refuge, for the last eleven years, haunted by a tragedy in his childhood and chafing at the boundaries placed on him. He is immediately captivated by Sofea, but revealing his most guarded secret could mean drawing her into the danger of his past.
As threats from outside the walls loom and traitors are uncovered within, Sofea and Eitan are plunged into the midst of a murder plot. Will they break free from the shackles of the past in time to uncover the betrayal and save their lives and the lives of those they love?
My thoughts: This book was excellent! I haven't had the pleasure of reading Connilyn's books before, so I was in for a delightful surprise. I loved the historical details in this story, the chance to catch a glimpse at the cities of refuge that the Bible talks about. I loved the contrasts that were portrayed between Sofea and Eitan's worlds. I wish I had read the first book in the series, since I feel like this series should be read in order to give the reader a background on the characters. That said, I can still highly recommend it!
I received this book from the publisher. This is my honest review and is in no way influenced by receiving a complimentary copy.
