Kiya’s future was bright. She had grown up in a well-to-do family and she was promised to her fiance who likewise had a bright future. But when financial difficulties slam her family full force Kiya’s father sells her into slavery to appease he creditor. Forced into the service of a woman who despises her and her family, Kiya deals with misery on a number of fronts while hoping that some day her fiance will return for her. Then come the plagues. At times there are things worse than death.
Counted with the Stars was a phenomenal story. I was glued to the pages from the very beginning and didn’t put it down until I had finished. I have never read a story that was based around biblical stories and can I just say this was a truly wonderful introduction into that realm. If you haven’t read this story – well, you’re missing out. Filled with action and plenty of lessons this is one not to be missed.
