A Light on the Hill book cover

Seven years ago, Moriyah was taken captive in Jericho and branded with the mark of the Canaanite gods. Now the Israelites are experiencing peace in their new land, but Moriyah has yet to find her own peace. Because of the shameful mark on her face, she hides behind her veil at all times and the disdain of the townspeople keeps her from socializing. And marriage prospects were out of the question . . . until now.

Her father has found someone to marry her, and she hopes to use her love of cooking to impress the man and his motherless sons. But when things go horribly wrong, Moriyah is forced to flee. Seeking safety at one of the newly-established Levitical cities of refuge, she is wildly unprepared for the dangers she will face, and the enemies-- and unexpected allies--she will encounter on her way.

Connilyn Cossette is a Christy Award and Carol Award winning author whose books have been on both ECPA and CBA bestseller lists. Her extensive research is readily evident as she transports readers back to the Israel of 1399 BC.
