I'm thinking if we took away ALL electronics, social media, all modes of transportation except foot or animals, we could have plenty more time for worship, praise and prayer time with God. As I read about what Noah and her sisters may have encountered in a day and how often they gave thanks or acknowledged God for his favor, I started to examine my day. I questioned how often I found myself in prayer or a simple "praise God". I thought about how many times, I've jumped in my van and drove nearly ...more

I've always admired the Daughter's of Zelophehad in scriptures for thier bravery. Their father died without a male heir. So they went to Moses to ask for lands and inheritance of their father so that his name would not be wiped off. And God granted their request.

Heavely lights is the story of Noah one of the Daughter's of Zelophehad. A shepherdess, brave and very handy. I admired her fearlessness in handling what would be called a man's job. She did it with grace and great skill. Her kind and

The second installment of Brittons well-researched and imaginative biblical fiction series is a delight. The author focuses on the little-told story of the daughters of Zelophehad who were bold enough to claim their rightful inheritance in the Promised Land after Moses led the Hebrews out of Egypt.

Noah is specially gifted in animal husbandry and the story opens upon her assisting in a difficult birth and devising an innovative therapeutic approach to encouraging the offspring to thrivea talent

This is the second in the Biblical Novel series, Daughters of Zelophehad.

We meet beautiful, intelligent, and strong Noah in the first title, LIONESS, MAHLAHS JOURNEY. That story reveals the remarkable strength and independence of the eldest of five orphaned sisters, determined to overcome gender-roles and restrictions to claim their familys rightful stake to land after the Tribes of Israel reclaim their promised land from the idol-worshippers. That fact, however, makes the sisters serious

The second book of the series

It is always such a pleasure to read Biblical fiction and to reconsider what I had always thought I knew about the event. To see things I hadn't seen before or simply to stretch my imagination.

Heavenly Lights depicts events surrounding the battle of Jericho and the defeat at Ai mostly from the viewpoint of Noah, a daughter of Zelophehad. The complications involved with being a shepherdess in a male-dominated society were quite interesting to ponder. Duties considered

Heavenly Lights is a continuation of Barbara M. Britton's Daughters of Zelophehad series. The series is based upon the biblical account found in Numbers 27:1-11 and 36:1-13. If you missed it, Lioness: Mahalah's Story (Book 1) details how a man named Zelophehad dies and how his daughters (Mahlah, Tirzah, Hoglah, Milcah, and Noah) petitioned Moses to grant them an inheritance among the tribes entering the Promised Land. Heavenly Lights picks up just after the walls of Jericho come down and ...more

I should start by saying that Biblical fiction is way outside my usual genres, so probably affects how much I like it. Also, for me, three stars means it's worth reading. it just wasn't one of my favs (which I give 4 stars to) or mindblowing (5), coz I'm pretty cautious with my stars.

So, I'm assuming you've read the blurb, so I won't recap that here. Here's just what I liked most, and things that weren't my favorite:

Barbara Britton has created a series of Biblical fiction books that bring life to the story of the Israelites journey to the Promised Land. Heavenly Lights tells the story of the fall of the wall of Jericho. Showing her understanding and love of the Old Testament, she stays true to the setting of the time period, creating fictional characters who could well have been there. Heavenly Lights shows the depth of love and belief in the living God, an unwavering God, who provides for His people. In ...more

In Heavenly Lights: Noahs Journey, Barbara M. Britton tells the story of Noah, Zelophehads second daughter, a shepherdess devoted to the care of her familys herd. Shes clever, passionate, and has a unique way with four-legged creatures. She is also among the few in her tribe capable of communicating with Jeremiah, a young man who cannot speak or hear. Like Noah, Jeremiah tends his familys livestock. He is strong and capable, but because of his inability to hear, he is not allowed to fight with ...more

Book 2 of the Daughters of Zelophehad: Heavenly Lights: Noahs Story.

Miss Barbara Britton continues the story of the daughters of the Zelophehad in Heavenly Lights: Noah's story.
This story touched my heart. It beautifully shows how those who feel lost, invisible, and unwanted are every bit as precious to God as those who believe themselves to be heroes. Often the things we see as our greatest weaknesses are what God chooses to use as our greatest strength for him.
This story follows the third

Heavenly Lights is the second book in the Daughters of Zelophehad series. After reading Book 1, Lioness, I was anxious to jump into this second book in the series. The authors use of language and sensory details take readers on a journey into the past. Noah, the shepherdess daughter, needs to prove herself capable in a mans profession. Her love for her work in the fields, and for a deaf-mute shepherd are threatened, but her faith in God remains strong.

The novel shows vigilant research in

This story carries on from where Lioness leaves off. Another amazing story which almost goes behind the scenes of the Bible story. You don't need to have read Lioness, which is book one, but it will help a little.

Noah is essentially doing a man's job, but one she loves. She takes care of her flock the only way a true shepherd(ess) can and under her care they thrive. Her fellow shepherd, Jeremiah, is deaf and dumb, yet the two of them communicate almost flawlessly. But with ongoing war, and the

Fiction Aficionado
Having enjoyed getting to know Noah and Jeremiah in the previous book in this series, Lioness: Mahlahs Journey, I was pleased to see them get their own story here, which plays out against the backdrop of the conquests of Jericho and Ai. I love the way these two understand each otherboth emotionally and physically, in light of Jeremiahs inability to either hear or speakand from the first pages of this story, we also got to see how well they worked together, tending their livestock through ...more

In Heavenly Lights we rejoin the daughters of Zelophehad as they continue their quest for land in Canaan, and we get to know Noah. I admire her strength, intelligence, and bravery. In a world where women arent often given much (if any) authority, she carves out her place as a shepherd, continuing the quest for the land promised to her and her sisters. If you love strong female characters, you will love Noah. Her love for fellow shepherd Jeremiah takes unexpected twists that will leave you ...more

In a time when women had no rights, this family of orphaned girls are given the right to own land and make their own decisions.

A Biblical tale in a class by itself. Only a strong female could fall in love with a disabled man. I have been waiting patiently for Noah's story and I have not been disappointed. In a culture where being disabled is frowned upon, Ms. Britton has proven just the opposite. Jeremiah who is deaf wants to win the heart of the strongwilled shepherdess, Noah. How does he plan to do this? He goes to war.

Noah loves Jeremiah just the way he is and is willing to fight against his brother, who wants Noah
