I couldn’t wait to dive into this book, after reading Cossette’s previous Cities of Refuge series! I loved those books and expected another good read here—which I got. Unfortunately, it wasn’t one of my favorites of hers in the end, but that was because the action seemed more stilted here and wasn’t in the high-risk/high-stakes danger I was accustomed to in her other books. Despite my slight disappointment there, however, I was impressed at her ability to pull the Biblical account into the story the way she did.

Many parts of this story—especially the first section—felt almost as if they were lifted from the Bible. They were taken a step higher with a touch of fiction added, but it felt very close to the Biblical account. I loved that.

Otherwise, this book was good. Encouraging, somewhat challenging, but good. If you’re looking for a book similar to her previous series, you might be somewhat disappointed—I didn’t feel like it was as good as those. In saying that, though, I still enjoyed it enough I can’t wait until the next one comes out, so my disappointment can’t be that great! Another good story, with a strong historical basis and an intriguing setting.

I requested a complementary review copy of this book, and this is my honest opinion of it. ( )

First, I have to gush over the cover art. It makes my heart happy to see a book cover that makes me stop and sigh, and this one does that. It not only sets the mood for the story inside, but it transports me to Biblical times.

It’s so exciting to begin reading a new book series, especially when it’s a biblical fiction series written by Connilyn Cossette! I believe I’ve read most, if not all of her stories and have rated them all with 5 stars. Yes, they’re that good!

The story begins with young Elisa and her brother Lukio, Philistines under the care of Azuvah, a Hebrew slave. Oh, how I love Azuvah, who stays true to her faith and convictions in a difficult environment. When an urgent time arises, selfless Azuvah urges Elisa and Lukio to run away and follow the Ark of the Covenant. There escape from a dreadful future is pivotal, heartbreaking, and inspiring.

It was common in Biblical times to receive a name change from the Lord during a pivotal time in someone’s life and faith, and when Elisa’s name becomes Eliora and Lukio becomes Natan, the story takes on a new life as well.

To Dwell Among Cedars, the first book in The Covenant House series, is captivating, heart-breaking, heart-pounding, and stirring. I effortlessly sank into this story and enjoyed the varying points of view. I stayed up late reading, unable to put the story down, for upon reaching the end of each chapter the story urged me to read further. The research that went into writing this story is evident and taught me so much about the customs and lives of people in that time in history. And I just love it when a story teaches me something new!

Walking in Arisa’s shoes has been quite an experience. I look forward to the next book in this series, delving deeper into Natan’s life.

Connilyn Cossette has done it again, becoming a favorite read of the year. A gorgeous cover, a captivating story, and brilliant storytelling.

Connilyn Cossette once again proves her impressive skill of bringing biblical history to life with vivid detail. As I read To Dwell Among Cedars, I felt transported to an Old-Testament time of which I knew little. Still, she makes it accessible with fleshed-out characters, intriguing drama, and relatable themes. The story that unfolds around Eliora, Ronen, and the Ark of the Covenant is one I found wholly fascinating and page-turning, and I look forward to seeing how the Covenant House series continues.

Like all of Connilyn Cossette’s novels, To Dwell Among Cedars is one that biblical-fiction lovers should not want to skip. I highly recommend it.

I received a complimentary copy of this book and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own. ( )

"Follow the Ark, Arisa. Do not turn to the right or to the left, and do not stop until it dwells among the cedars and you are sheltered in perfect peace."

Once again, I am amazed with Connilyn Cossette's ability to transport me back to biblical times and open my eyes to truths shared in the Holy Bible. To Dwell Among Cedars begins in Philistia in 1070 BC and Cossette immediately captured my attention with her imaginative tale of what might have occurred during the attempts to recover the Ark of the Covenant, as she bases her story on scripture from 1 Samuel 4 and 1 Samuel 6. Fascinating characters and her wonderful descriptive powers are the keys to this intriguing tale of adoption, forgiveness, a return to faith, and the beginning of a sweet love story between Eliora (Arisa), a Philistine girl, and the Levite musician Ronen. Eliora's brother Natan (Lukio) is also an important part of To Dwell Among Cedars and I am looking forward to learning more about him in the next book in The Covenant House duology!

I recommend To Dwell Among Cedars to all who enjoy biblical fiction and Christian romance. You won't be disappointed!

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers. There was no obligation for a favorable review and no monetary compensation was given. These are my own thoughts. ( )

I have such respect for authors of Biblical fiction and the copious amounts of research they do to bring Scripture to life in a new and illuminating way. Connilyn Cossette excels in creating settings that draw you in, characters that draw you close, and a plot that doesn’t let go.

Central to the plot of To Dwell Among Cedars is the ark of the covenant and specifically the time period from when the Philistines took it to when it was returned on a cart drawn by cows.

But this book is about finding our value in how we are loved and not in what we do to be loved. While remaining true to Biblical teachings of God’s judgement and provision, Cossette takes us deeper into discovering value. Eliora discovers the love of the family that adopted her and her brother is not broken by her or her little brother's actions—neither good or bad. How much greater if God’s love for those he calls children?

To Dwell Among Cedars has a lot happening—from the relationship between Eliora and her brother as well as their adoptive family, the activities around the ark, Ronen’s mission and doubt, and the sweet and gentle romance he develops with the woman he once rescued as a girl—but the story would not be as poignant and moving if any of them.

Disclosure statement: I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this audiobook and was not required to write a positive review. All opinions are my own. ( )
