Until the Mountains Fall

All right, I’m back today with my review of a book by an author who has quickly become one of my favorites.  Right off the bat with her debut novel in 2016, she drew me into her world of biblical fiction, a genre I had previously not generally liked.  I’ve read every book of hers since then, and they’ve all been good reads.  Today’s book is no exception.

Until the Mountains Fall by Connilyn Cossette is the third book in the “Cities of Refuge” series.

Until the Mountains Fall (Cities of Refuge Book #3) by [Cossette, Connilyn]

Rivkah is a young widow whose father is Kedesh’s high priest who wants her to follow the Torah law to marry her late husband’s brother to secure her future and his lineage.  Her late husband’s younger brother, Malakhi, always tormented her and annoyed her when they were growing up, and she despises the thought of having to marry because of a law, much less marry him.

Malakhi has secretly admired Rivkah for years, and wants to do all he can to make her love him in this unexpected betrothal, but how can he win her heart when she dislikes him so greatly and is still grieving his brother?

I thought this was a very interesting premise for a plot and that the author did a great job of making it “not awkward” for modern-day readers. It was a great story set during the beginning of living in the Promised Land with prodigal son vibes. I was captivated as always with the author’s descriptions of the land and laws, and I found myself cheering for the characters as well. The one thing I’m confused about is how the title relates to the story.
