Shadow of the Storm (Out of Egypt #2), By Connilyn Cossette-Book Review
About the book:

When the people rebel by worshiping a golden idol, the ensuring chaos give Shira an unexpected opportunity to assist a midwife. When the experience awakens a new desire in her, she defies her mothers wish for her to continue in the family weaving trade and pursues her hearts 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 a 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?"
I'm going to start with I loved this book so much I went out and bought the first. Connilyn Cossette wrote a beautiful biblical fiction that kept me up late finishing. Rich in historical details, Shadow of the Storm is wonderfully written with amazing details and characters. Connilyn did a great job writing mixing a story of self discovery and romance.
Though you don't need to read the first book to understand the second, be forewarned you do get "spoilers" by doing so. It's not only a story of self discovery but it is also a well written romance.
This is definitely a book I would recommend to read!
I received this book in exchange for my honest review. All opinions expressed are my own.
