My Goodreads Monday today is a bit different. Usually, I showcase a TBR that has been sitting on my virtual or physical bookshelf for quite some time. This book hasn’t yet released and just arrived on my doorstep a few days ago. Yes, you read that right…I have this book before release date. How? Well, I happen to be on the launch team for it! I really wanted to take the time to showcase this book because I’ve been waiting for months for this release! Without further ado, let me introduce you to one of my most anticipated reads of 2018!
Genres: Ancient World, Christian, Fiction, Historical, Romance
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.
