About the Book
Strong-willed Tirzah wants to join her people in driving the enemy from the land of Israel and undergoes training for a secret mission inside the stronghold of Shechem. But soon after she has infiltrated the ruthless Aramean commander's kitchen, she makes a reckless decision that puts her and her allies in grave danger.
Fresh off the battlefield, Liyam returns home to discover his beloved daughter is dead. After his vow to hunt down her killer leads to months of fruitless pursuit, his last hope is in a family connection that comes with strings attached. Strings that force him to pose as a mercenary and rescue an infuriating woman who refuses to leave her mission uncompleted.
When an opportunity to pave a path to a Hebrew victory arises, can Tirzah convince Liyam to fight alongside her in the refuge city of her birth? Or will Liyam's thirst for vengeance outweigh his duty to his people, his God, and the woman he's come to love?
About the Author
When she is not homeschooling her two sweet kids (with a full pot of coffee at hand), CONNILYN COSSETTE is scribbling notes on spare paper, mumbling about her imaginary friends, and reading obscure, out-of-print history books. There is nothing she likes better than digging into the rich, ancient world of the Bible and uncovering buried gems of grace that point toward Jesus. Although a Pacific Northwest native, she now lives near Dallas, Texas. Counted with the Stars is her first novel.
Author Connilyn Cossette writes some of the very best biblical fiction and this story of Tirzah in Like Flames in the Night is no different, as it satisfyingly brings this wonderful series to an end. The story is of a strong and beautiful woman who is determined to help her people and a man, Liyam, who vows to avenge the death of his daughter and how this comes to consume his life and the journey they end up on together. Cossette brilliantly weaves together a story with characters that readers will not soon forget as it all comes to life from the pages. This is a thrilling, inspiring, and powerful story of a daring mission and the Promise Land that will touch the hearts of readers long after the last word has been read.
