From Amazon: When a quiet journey to Jerusalem turns tragic, newly orphaned Rimona must flee a kinsman set on selling her as a slave. Racing into the rocky hills outside of Hebron, Rimona is rescued by a Philistine commander journeying to Jerusalem with six-hundred warriors. Exiled commander, Ittai the Gittite, is seeking refuge in the City of David. Protecting a frantic Hebrew woman is not in his leadership plan. Although, having a nobleman’s niece in his caravan might prove useful for finding shelter in a foreign land. Rimona and Ittai arrive in Jerusalem on the eve of a rebellion. In the chaos of an heir’s betrayal, will they be separated forever, or can they defend King David and help the aging monarch control his rebellious son?
My Review: I loved this story. Character’s from the Bible are brought to life by Britton. She carefully wove this story and successfully wrote in a fast pace for the reader. As I read, I often prayed. We are to love one another, have compassion, and more. I fail in loving two people, my mother and my ex. Both horribly abusive. I no longer hate either of them, but I’m working on moving past just accepting of them. This is the best Christian novel I’ve ever read. Five shiny gold stars.
