This was a fascinating theme for me, the thought that God would allow cities of refuge for people who have been accused of murder and need a fair trial. I had previously known of this concept in the Bible, but I have never red a fiction story where an author attempted to include it. I enjoyed reading a new plot! I hope that Cossette will continue this theme in her future fiction stories.
The idea sparked ideas of what grace and mercy really are. The main character is harshly accused of murder and the relative is demanding her life. She did the act and therefor, is literally a “murderer” but the intention was not to harm the victims, it was accidental. The thoughts stirred questions of forgiveness and a remembrance of Jesus’ sacrifice for our sins.
I would recommend this book to a friend. I was given a copy of this book for my review.
