Welcome to Memorable Monday! The purpose of Memorable Monday is to showcase an influential book read in the past that still sticks with you today. This fun Monday morning post is hosted by the lovely Becca at The Becca Files.
This week, I am featuring:
Counted With the Stars (Out of Egypt #1)
by: Connilyn Cossette
If you have not read a novel by Connilyn Cossette, I highly recommend you do so immediately. I have read and enjoyed each of Mrs. Cossette’s novels. They are so good! Each novel is excellently written, thoroughly researched, and so well told I’m devastated when I reach the last page.
Counted With the Stars is such a good read. I love so much when Biblical fiction stories make me feel like I am right there with the actual people from the Bible. This book illustrates, through an Egyptian slave girl, Moses’s fight with Pharaoh and the eventual exodus of the Hebrew people out of Egypt. I still vividly remember almost every part to this excellent story. And, my favorite aspect of all, it made me see the Exodus story from a whole new perspective. This is definitely a series that has stuck with me long after having read it.

About the Book
A Story of Love, Desperation, and Hope During a Great Biblical Epoch
Sold into slavery by her father and forsaken by the man she was supposed to marry, young Egyptian Kiya must serve a mistress who takes pleasure in her humiliation. When terrifying plagues strike Egypt, Kiya is in the middle of it all.
To save her older brother and escape the bonds of slavery, Kiya flees with the Hebrews during the Great Exodus. She finds herself utterly dependent on a fearsome God she’s only just beginning to learn about, and in love with a man who despises her people. With everything she’s ever known swept away, will Kiya turn back toward Egypt or surrender her life and her future to Yahweh?
