Wings of the Wind Review




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?

Wings of the Wind by Connilyn Cossette was a gripping tale of biblical times. I quickly fell in love with both Alanah and Tobiah and in their story of love, forgiveness and second chances. Wings of the Wind is an amazing fictional account of the times of wandering for the Hebrews after their escape from Egypt. If you're anything like me you won't be able to set this story down until you reach the end. Connilyn Cossette is my favorite new biblical fiction writers.

5 out of 5.

I received a copy of this book from Bethany House in exchange for my honest review.
