Sold into slavery by her father and forsaken by the man she was supposed to marry, young Egyptian Kiya must serve a mistress who takes pleasure in her humiliation. When terrifying plagues strike Egypt, Kiya is in the middle of it all. To save her older brother and escape the bonds of slavery, Kiya flees with the Hebrews during the Great Exodus. She finds herself utterly dependent on a fearsome God she's only just beginning to learn about, and in love with a man who despises her people. With everything she's ever known swept away, will Kiya turn back toward Egypt or surrender her life and her future to Yahweh?

wow what can I say?

I usually not attracted to biblical story. But this one I am spellbounded.

I love the flow, story, characters. I can imagine myself reading this book under the starry night in desert of Egypt. Surely this book was born from such beautiful place!

I enjoy letting each letters, each words absorbed into me I am there IN the story.

and the title!

The author is amazing storyteller.

Now I am Requesting the next books.

Praise for Cossette! under the 'biblical fiction' genre, I decided to read my first book by said author . I was genuinely drawn into the created story of how a young girl, Kiya, was stripped of her hopes and dreams, but journeys to freedom, love and discovery of the one true God. I appreciated the author's take on the scope of Israel's dramatic deliverance from the house of bondage. Cossette provoked wonder and interesting perspective in terms of how horrifying the 10 plagues was on the land of Egypt and how the faith of the Hebrews was tested at every turn. I did feel that the story could have been shorter and still be as good, but I enjoyed it all nonetheless. The intercultural romance between Kiya (Egyptian) and Ebin (a Hebrew) was also well developed and very sweet. The characters were able to rise above their obvious differences and appreciate each other. I look forward to the second installment in this series.

This book is very well written and from a different point of view. It tells the story of the Hebrew slaves and an Egyptian family's Exodus from Egypt from a commoner point of view. It kept me reading far longer than I had anticipated. Very good story line and had a good Biblical background. I enjoyed it very much and can't wait for the next one in the series to come out.
