I took advantage of the last few days of the May Kindle sales this week. I was also really excited to pick up three of the books on the Modern Mrs Darcy summer reading guide. No long waits at the library for me!
This was a very satisfying conclusion to the Out from Egypt series. The plot kept me turning the pages. I have read what the Bible says about women taken captive during this time period, but I don't think I've come across a novel that tackles the subject. This story is very well researched.
I really loved the characters. Alanah is a strong heroine who knows her own mind. She is dealing with grief and has no interest in love, especially with someone who is her sworn enemy. Tobiah is a swoon worthy leading man who loves Alanah and wants to protect her at all costs. I enjoyed the supporting characters too, some of which we were introduced to in the previous books.
I'm adding all of these to my summer TBR. I was super excited to win Where the Light Falls. I've read all of Allison Pataki's books so far, and have loved them. What books did you get lately? Let me know in the comments.
I highly recommend this book if you enjoy World War 2 fiction. I loved the characters and the back and forth time line. I wouldn't call it light hearted, but it isn't as heavy as a lot of of the books in this genre. The mystery really kept me guessing until the end. I've read several books by Melanie Dobson, and this is my favorite so far.
I received this book for free for the purpose of review.
