About the Book
After a heartbreaking end to her secret friendship with Lukio, Shoshana thought to never see the boy with the dual-colored eyes and the troubled soul again. But when she is captured in a Philistine raid and enslaved in Ashdod, she is surprised to find that the brutal fighter known as Demon-Eyes is Lukio himself.
With explosive secrets and unbreakable vows standing between them, finding a way to freedom for both may cost them everything.

Between the Wild Branches is the second book of the Covenant House duology, but it reads well as a stand-alone. Having read its predecessor, I found this book especially heart-wrenching because of the decisions Lukio had made. Upon further reading, I was astounded by all the positive choices he had made - as a businessman, home owner, and master of his household.
Shoshana's life had been one filled with heartbreak, but she remained strong, yet kind and loyal.
This was a great story. Details about the time and place were thoroughly fleshed out. The characters were believable. And in the midst of an evil civilization, there was still hope. Author Connilyn Cossette has penned an unforgettable story that readers of Biblical fiction, historical fiction, and Christian fiction will enjoy.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher, Bethany House, for review purposes. The thoughts expressed here are my own.
