Wings of the Wind {Out From Egypt #3} by Connilyn Cossette

Little description:Alanah, a Canaanite, is no stranger to fighting and survival. When her family is killed in battle with the Hebrews, she disguises herself and sneaks onto the battlefield to avenge her family. The one thing she never counted on was surviving.

Tobiah, a Hebrew warrior, is shocked to find an unconscious, wounded woman among the Canaanite casualties. Compelled to bring her to a Hebrew healer back at their camp, he is soon confronted with a truth he can’t ignore: the only way to protect this enemy is to marry her.

Unused to being weak and vulnerable, Alanah submits to the marriage–for now. As she comes to know and respect Tobiah and his people, however, she begins to second-guess her plans of escape. But when her past has painfully unanticipated consequences, the tentative peace she’s found with Tobiah, the Hebrews, and Yahweh is shaken to the core. Can Alanah’s fierce heart and strength withstand the ensuing threats to her life and all she’s come to love?

My thoughts: 5 stars out of 5

Well, I found in this book everything: biblical truth, hope, love, hate, pain, restoration, alone, outcast, battles, bloods are spilled…

Connilyn Cossette made it possible to see through the Hewbrew’s eyes when they crossed the river to take over and posses the promised land; to fight the battles over Jericho. What about Rahab? How did she ended up to be a prostitute? What moved her to hide the spies from foreign land and put her life on the line? What did she see what others didn’t see?

This story is about great move of selfless love that will break any iron grip of vengeance and hate, and bring the sparks of hope, restoration and acceptance… A lifetime change that came to Alanah when she was dying on the battlefield, pierced through with the arrow in her shoulder and the emptiness in her heart. All she wanted is to die like a warrior on the battlefield. She did not see the help coming from the enemy, that’s not what her deities called for and her culture taught her.

A miracle changed her life forever. A forced marriage. Held captive in the enemy’s camp. A baby… What else a life could give her?
