Summary

Sold into slavery by her father and forsaken by the man she was supposed to marry, young Egyptian Kiya must serve a mistress who takes pleasure in her humiliation. When terrifying plagues strike Egypt, Kiya is in the middle of it all.

Choosing to flee with the Hebrews, Kiya finds herself reliant on a strange God and drawn to a man who despises her people. With everything she's ever known swept away, and now facing the trials of the desert, will she turn back toward Egypt or surrender her life and her future to Yahweh?

great story horriable narrator

I loved this story it is the only reason I kept listening, the narrator had a good voice but she read the book like she was in an English speaking class. Every word pronounced so precisely that there was almost know emotion to it but only correct and precise speaking. It was really distracting and took a lot away from the characters.

Couldn’t endure it...

The narrator has the most annoying voice. She speaks in a way that I find most annoying in a narrator-she has a whispery voice-as if she is reading a bedtime story-and she pronounces as many syllables as possible in every word. I enjoy Christian fiction and I understand the author’s goal of possibly educating readers who might not be familiar with scripture, but I find it tedious to listen to background stories that don’t really further the plot. I gave up after a little over an hour-I tried to get used to her voice but I found myself clenching my teeth after a few minutes every time I attempted to listen. I won’t be listening to the other books in this series.

Enjoyed this Audiobook

Counted with the Stars painted an exquisite picture of the might and faithfulness of the Lord God who created the Earth and heavens. The story of Exodus came to life through the eyes of an Egyptian girl sold into slavery by her father to pay his debts, and her Redemption by her true Father from above. Great story!

Wonderful

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

yes
Gives you a different perspective on what was going on in their lives during that time. Its like reading/looking between the lines of the Bible.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Counted with the Stars?

Hard to say and it would spoil it for those who have yet to read this good great fabulous wonderful .....book!

Have you listened to any of Sarah Mollo-Christensen’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Before we left Eygpt

Any additional comments?

I randomly found this author, I took a chance and glad I did. There are just two authors I will buy a book based solely on the author without knowing anything about the book... Francine Rivers and Ted Dekker I think I might add Connilyn Cossette to that list.

It had potential but fell a little flat

*Spoiler!*
The writer took liberties about how God parted the water. She also had the main female & male lead make a decision to marry before the female character cleansed her house of pagan idols which would not have happened. There were a few other areas not true to the Bible. One is when God spoke to the multitude around Mt. Sinai. There are no counts of miraculous healing when God spoke then. She also failed to mention that the people were in fear of God’s voice and begged not to hear it again.
When writing about a fictional character surrounded by true instances in the Bible you must be careful not to add or take away to it.

Makes the Bible come alive

This writer makes one feel like you are living during this time period ! More importantly it made me feel even closer to God’s plan for us, His love, His forgiveness and His mercy.
