Counted With the Stars

counted with the starsIt has been a bit of time since I read any Christian fiction, but since Connilyn Cossette’s Counted With the Stars came free in the mail, I gave it a try. I was pleasantly surprised.

This is the story of Kiya, an Egyptian woman, during the time of the Hebrews captivity and exodus (found in the biblical account in Exodus).

 

 

Things I loved about the book:

  • I love the chosen context. I have never read a novel written from the perspective of an Egyptian during the plagues and exodus. I especially enjoyed reading the fictional conversations with Moses – they helped me to imagine a bit more of what things were like.
  • This book also came at a great time for me personally, since I have been reading through the book of Exodus in the Bible.

Critique:

  • The plot was a bit far-fetched at times, especially the romantic bits.

What is going to stick with me:

  • The picture of God as invitational to all people, regardless of race or background.

*I received this book from Bethany House in exchange for an honest review.
