Publisher's Summary

Having escaped Egypt with the other Hebrews during the Exodus, Shira is now living in freedom at the foot of Mount Sinai. When the people rebel by worshipping a golden idol, the ensuing chaos gives Shira an unexpected opportunity to assist a midwife. When the experience awakens a new desire in her, she defies her mother's wish for her to continue in the family weaving trade and pursues her heart's calling as an apprentice midwife.

But when a delivery goes horribly wrong, Shira finds herself in an impossible situation and bound to a man who betrayed her. As contention between the Hebrew tribes and the foreigners fans the flames of another dangerous rebellion, Shira comes face to face with the long-hidden pain of her past. Can she let go of all that has defined her to embrace who she truly is and believe in a hopeful future?

This was worth a read but not very exciting.

This book was hard to keep up with the different characters because of the way it was written. It was Very slow starting and the story was drawn out too long. It got wearisome at times, because Ms Cossette would make an event take so long to advance. The narrator, Sarah Mollo-Christensen was pretty good. She has the ability to do different ages believably. I was disappointed that in this story, Biblically documented miracles, if mentioned, were treated as banal as a regular day. I cannot believe anyone, much less a group of people, would be so blasé about the miracles they experienced.

Amazing story

Captured my attention throughout the book, I found myself wanting to know what will happen next, which makes for an excellent story line. I will listen to more of connilyn’s books, it builds my faith and has much underlying truth built in. God does truly heal peoples broken hearts, one day at a time, one step at a time.

wonderful

this story starts out slow. if it wasn't for the fact that it had characters from the first story, I wouldn't have finished the book. However, after the first chapter or two, I was hooked and had a hard time putting it down.
This book is a wonderful story of forgiveness and God's love for all.

Excellent continuance of the story......

This 2nd book in the series is just as good as the 1st one. We loved learning more about Shira and her struggles and faith. This series is sooo good! Wish we could give it 10 stars! And on to the 3rd book!

Shadow of the Storm

Wow, incredible!!!! I first thought the book far too long, drawn out in sections, but I couldn’t seem to stop listening. Also, thought Shera was far too fearful for my blood, but still, couldn’t stop listening. I hated Devora for a long minute, but still, I could not stop listening to the book. Kira was my favorite in the first book and I think I wanted to read more of her in the second, but still, I kept listening.
This was absolutely great!!! The author grabbed my heart and turned my passions upside down, far more than I can ever articulate. And, I thoroughly loved the author’s ability to keep biblical history and storyline at the forefront. AWESOME!!!
The spirit of Forgiveness is ALWAYS my heart and Shera carried that spirit, though fearful, throughout much of the book, she showed forth great strength that I as a reader so embraced and admired. Awesome AWESOME read. :)

Excellent story

Narrator is good, nice low male voice but a bit more emotion would be nice. Didn't quite ever lose the fact it was narrator.

Another great story!!

Great story!! The endings always leave you anxiously looking forward to the next book!! The biblical aspects are not always in the correct orders, but it is fiction.

Salvation

Love the story. Narrator was good. as I listened it came to me that as the people waited in the different locations under the Shadow of the Almighty, they came to salvation in Mighty Yah. Mercy was free like a river. I could feel it even in my heart. Praise Him!

Deborah vs Shira

The gentleness of the Narrator's voice is great, pacing was "just👌🏾 this side" of too slow. Most areas where passionate emotions should have been emphasized, simply didn't happen!!

I purposely waited until Shavuot/Pentecost to listen to this story. It turned out to be an excellent choice. The tellings re: high holy days was very well done and a complete blessing. Seeing the reactions to the deaths over the golden calf, those who abhorred it and those hating the Levites afterward put a realistic spin on things. Thoroughly enjoyed the midwifery and the different attitudes of the mixed multitude!! Great storyline!

Just skipped 50 Chapters

OMG I hope that the reader of this book does NOT read another in this series. She reads staccato and nasally....just like she does when she narrates crime show on The OXYGEN Network...change the channel every time just like I flipped to the last chapter after 1 hour of her nasal droning. And that I wasted a credit on it.

Fantastic, so good I cried when it ended!

An absolutely amazing story. I loved it!! The drama was a bit too heart-wrenching for me at times but it was very engaging. I highly recommend it. If you don't like the narrator listen to it at 1.05 speed. Makes it much easier to listen to and follow.
