In the Depth of the Storm's Shadow, Only Truth Can Light Her Way Having escaped Egypt with the other Hebrews during the Exodus, Shira is now living in freedom at the foot of Mt. Sinai, upon which rests the fiery glowing Cloud containing the shekinah glory of God. When the people disobey Yahweh and build a golden idol, the ensuing chaos gives Shira an unexpected opportunity to learn the arts of midwifery. Although her mother wishes for her to continue in the family weaving trade, Shira's gifts shine brightest when she assists with deliveries. In defiance of her mother, Shira pursues her heart's calling to become an apprentice midwife.When a delivery goes horribly wrong, Shira finds herself bound to a man who betrayed her, the caretaker of three young children, and the target of a vengeful woman whose husband was killed by Shira's people, the Levites. As contention between the Hebrew tribes and the foreigners fans the flames of another dangerous rebellion, Shira will come face-to-face with the heartbreak of her past that she has kept hidden for so long. How can she let go of all that has defined her to accept the love she's denied herself and embrace who she truly is?… (lisätietoja)

Picking up shortly after where the first book ended, the Israelites are camped at the foot of Mount Sinai awaiting God’s instructions through Moses. Taking us through the events involving the golden calf, the building of the Tabernacle, and the journey to the border of the Promised Land, the book follows Shira, a young barren woman who chooses to learn midwifery and finds herself struggling to discern God’s path for her life.

This is a fascinating story, not only because the secrets the characters hold and the twists the narrative takes are often unexpected, but also because it is a period of history that isn’t often written about in fiction, and while I know a little about the major events that took place during that time, I’ve never imagined what the people’s daily lives would have looked like and what challenges they faced as a new nation living and traveling together. I also like that we get to see more of the first book’s main characters as well, and I hope that continues into the third book! ( )

Shadow of the Storm, second in the Out From Egypt series by Connilyn Cossette, is a remarkable novel. Biblical fiction is one of my favorite genres to read and this book did not disappoint. The story of the Hebrew nation fleeing from Egypt may be a familiar story to many but their life in the wilderness leaves a bit to the imagination and Cossette fills in this story magnificently. Using the voice of two distinctly different women, everyday life in the wilderness amidst a group of fractured people with jagged edges is vividly portrayed. Shira, gentle, and yet with a strength she has not yet recognized, desires to be a midwife despite her mother's disapproval. Can she find the courage to stand up to her mother and change her life's work or will she be held in bondage by her past? When the unthinkable happens will she ever be able to let go of her fears, the echoes of panic? Dvorah is a bitter, jealous woman who has a sordid and sorrowful past that holds her in bondage. A woman who clings to the superstitions and hopelessness of idol worship. Can she ever learn to trust others and recognize her worth as a daughter of Yahweh? What sorrow will her actions bring to others? To herself? The author brings to life the joys and heartaches of childbirth in the desert, the celebration of marriage as well as the building of the tabernacle and God's desire to dwell among His people despite their disunity and rebellion. Through the telling of friendships woven together through circumstances, slavery and God and relationships torn apart by fear, hatred, and jealousy, Cossette tells a story of forgiveness. A story of the hope that even in the storms of life God can take the broken pieces of our lives and fit them together into something beautiful. Shadow of the Storm is a captivating glimpse into the history of God's Chosen Ones.
I received a copy of the book from the author. A favorable review was not required and the opinions are my own. ( )
