Beautiful Biblical Fiction from Connilyn Cossette: A Review of Until the Mountains Fall

I've said before that I am always uncertain when I read Biblical fiction. Fictionalized stories that contain real people and events from the Bible can be really accurate and can enhance what I already know about the Bible. But Biblical fiction can also be inaccurate, changing the truths that are in the Bible. So I'm always cautious when I'm choosing fictional books set in Bible times.




A few years ago I found a Biblical fiction author that I loved. Her books are beautiful and are true to Scripture. I've reviewed several of them so far.
Her books have followed the Israelites as they left Egypt and traveled to the Promised Land. The most recent books have been focused on the Cities of Refuge assigned as the people entered Canaan. I recently was super excited to review Connilyn's newest book- Until the Mountains Fall.

About the Book...


From the book's description... Recently widowed, Rivkah refuses to submit to the Torah law compelling her to marry her husband's brother and instead flees Kedesh, hoping to use her talents as a scribe to support herself. Without the protections of her father, Kedesh's head priest, and the safety of the city of refuge, Rivkah soon discovers that the cost of recklessness is her own freedom.

Malakhi has secretly loved Rivkah for years, but he never imagined his older brother's death would mean wedding her himself. After her disappearance, he throws himself into the ongoing fight against the Canaanites instead of dwelling on all he has lost. But with impending war looming over Israel, Rivkah's father comes to Malakhi with an impossible request.

As the enemies that Rivkah and Malakhi face from without and within Israel grow more threatening each day, is it too late for the restoration their wounded souls seek?

My Thoughts...


Just like the other Connilyn Cossette books, this one features Biblical places and a few people and does a great job of making sure that any people, places, and events are accurately represented. 

The writing is beautiful. The characters are well-developed and compelling. The story is one that is interesting and isn't trite and overused. The main plot of the story is romantic, but the people and places alongside give the story more depth than some traditional romances.

If you're looking for your next great read and you enjoy Christian fiction, Until the Mountains Fall is for you. You can find it on Amazon here.
