I received a copy of WINGS OF THE WIND by Connilyn Cossette in exchange for an honest review. The book was given to me by Bethany House, so I knew to expect topnotch fiction. Once again I was not disappointed.
This is the third installment in the “Out from Egypt” series. I had previously read book two and looked forward to diving back into Christian historical fiction. In this book, the Israelites are about to enter “The Promised Land.”
Connilyn Cossette brings her characters to life, and with them, the Bible. Most of the historical fiction I read deals with the 1800’s, so it was refreshing to read something set much farther back in time. This book looks at a time not often written about.
My favorite part is how well the author explored Alanah. You understood what she went through, where she was coming from. You really got to know Alanah as a person and not just ink on a page.
I not only recommend this book, but the series as a whole. You will be entertained and enlightened, transported back in time. This is a great book for reading circles. There is much fodder for literary discussion. 5 stars.
