In Until the Mountains Fall, Cossette picks up the narrative with Malachi and Rivkah. Torn apart by a tumultuous young adulthood, Rivkah is left feeling resentful and used after the sudden death of her husband, a man who, despite his kindness, could not capture her heart. When her father insists that Rivkah join in a levirate marriage by marrying her husband's younger brother, since her all-too-short marriage resulted in no heir. Rivkah is determined to avoid the marriage, but Malachi is just as determined to prove his worth to her. With war on the horizon, will their own insecurities lead to the downfall of not just their potential marriage but their family and people?
The third of Cossette's fantastic series continues to weave an epic multi-generational biblical drama. Each book continues the story of one member of the family formed in the first book, while at the same time building and developing on the characters from the previous books. Cossette truly has a talent for weaving together suspense, faith, history, and romance into one irresistible story that leaves you feeling not only satisfied but inspired. I honestly can't think of anything wrong with this book. Well-researched, well-written, well-paced, and even the cover is beautiful!
Do I really have to wait until March to read the next one in the series???

Until the Mountains Fall by Connilyn Cossette is the third book in her Cities of Refuge series. This story centers around the refuge cities of Kadesh and Edrei. Rivkah is a recent widow and according to Torah law she must marry her husband’s brother, Malakhi. Still grieving for her husband, she flees Kadesh and becomes a scribe for a wealthy man in Edrei. Malakhi has loved Rivkah since he was a young boy. He is heartbroken when she runs away. His family tries to get him to find someone else but nobody measures up to her. Will they ever find a common ground? This story started out very slowly. To me both Rivkah and Malakhi were too self-centered and childish. You wanted to reach out and shake some sense into them and tell them to grow up. About half-way through it started picking up and by the end I couldn’t put it down. Rivkah owned up to her sins and was willing to pay the consequences for her actions. Thankfully she had a forgiving heavenly Father and earthly father as well. What a story of forgiveness and reconciliation!

I received this book from the author in exchange for my honest review.
