Sofea and her cousin, Prezi, are the only survivors of a pirate attack on their island village. Injured and alone in a foreign land with a foreign language, they find themselves in the city of Kedesh where they are taken in by Moriyah and her family.

Moriyah’s adopted son, Eitan, is chafing against his vow to stay within the walls of the city for his own protection. He longs to find his purpose as a warrior of Israel and earn his stepfather’s approval, but his uncle still poses a threat to his life should he ever step outside the city boundary. With Sofea’s arrival, he soon discovers a new purpose: winning her heart and showing her that she is precious and loved in the eyes of the One God.

This is only the second book in the series, so is it too early to say that it’s my favourite? It struck the perfect balance for me: the excitement, tension, and danger added just the right amount of interest amidst the tender and loving scenes that developed not only Sofea and Eitan’s romance, but the warm relationships they share with the rest of the family. I loved it so much! ( )

Another gem of biblical fiction from Connilyn Cossette, Shelter of the Most High does not disappoint. As the story of Sofea and Eitan unfolds on the pages, the history of the cities of refuge comes to life, once again, in captivating detail. Add to this the page-turning drama of danger, betrayal, murderous intent, and of course, romance, and this latest novel from Connilyn Cossette is not one to easily put down. Shelter of the Most High kept me reading late into the night, eager to discover what would happen next. It’s a book I highly recommend and is sure to be on my list of favorites for the year, right next to A Light on the Hill.

Thanks to the author, I received a complimentary copy of Shelter of the Most High and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own. ( )

“The Almighty Creator spoke your being into existence. How could you be anything less than precious?” This is a quote to end all quotes for me, one I want to memorize, because it is TRUTH.
What a wonderful, yet chilling, story Connilyn Cossette has penned in Shelter of the Most High. As always, I especially pay attention when a book has a double-entendre title. Well- done from the start!
Cossette takes the reader back to the time in Israel’s history when Israel has just entered the Promised Land, captured much territory, and now their revered leader Joshua is ready to die.
One of Israel’s traveling spies, Darek, finds Sofea and Prezi, malnourished and greatly abused, on an island. Taking them back to his family,
Sofea and Prezi slowly heal as they are assimilated into a large family whose God is so very different from their own.
Cossette is a new-to-me author that I can’t wait to begin reading more, starting with the first and soon-to-come third book of this series. This book, although book two of a series, stands well on its own. Spell-binding could describe Cossette’s writing. Once started, it was hard to stop reading. Perhaps gritty also describes Cossette’s style. Not in language, but the physical abuse, carnage, and false god worship may turn a few delicate stomachs.
What else, besides the compelling storyline, history immersion, and sweet romance make this a great book? Themes of unrelinquished guilt, undeserved mercy, and unconditional love. If you have not tried Cossette’s Biblical fiction, or at least not Shelter of the Most High, I strongly invite you back to Cossette’s ancient Israel, the Cities of Refuge, and the Great Sea.
I was given a complimentary copy of this book through Celebrate Lit. No review was required, and all opinions are my own. ( )

This is a wonderful series. I did not want to put this book down. This was a fantastic biblical fiction story. This story showed what Sofea felt when she was taken from her home and ends up with people she doesn’t know and can’t understand. Eitan learns many lessons also. This was one of my favorite books written in 2018. I received a copy of this book from Celebratelit for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will. ( )

I don't know where I've been, but I can't believe I have not read a book by this author. Her silky smooth textured writing places readers right in the midst of the story. Sofea is a wonderful character with great passion. As she escapes with her cousin Prezi, the author transports us back in time. It was hard to read how Sofea and Prezi had been treated and to discover what had happened to their village. I loved how determined Sofea was to keep her cousin safe . I'm not sure how brave I would be to jump off a ship but when faced with danger, but Sofea knew they must jump or face death.

Eitan is a young man who has not been allowed to from leave his city because of a grudge someone has against him. It is evident as you read the story that revenge fuels several characters. I liked how Eitan and his family took Sofea and Prezi in and made them feel safe. There was a bit of uncertainty between the cousins of their new home but at least they were not out in water or wandering around without shelter to protect them.

I loved getting to know each character but I have to say Prezi was my favorite. Her quiet disposition was refreshing and I loved how she was hungry to know who God was. I loved how the story flowed and the mystery surrounding Eitan. Someone is out to harm him and will do anything to lure him straight into the path of death.

I loved this story and how seamless the author incorporated biblical truths throughout the story. It is also a beautiful story of people seeking forgiveness and acceptance. I loved the adventure Eitan took when he found out Sofea and Prezi were in danger. He was willing to sacrifice himself to save them. A great reminder that we also had someone who gave their life to save us. I highly recommend this story filled with historical facts and a lesson in hope.

I received a copy of this book from Celebrate Lit. The review is my own opinion. ( )
