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 f

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 a

This book is so good!

Jeremiah and Noah’s relationship is sweet. He’s a respectful man, and I liked seeing him grow in this story! He and Noah balanced each other out nicely. I liked seeing her grow and make changes to her life.

Their love is really sweet and honest, and they’re both God-fearing people.

The second installment of Britton’s 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 thrive—a talent

I am sooo sold on Barbara M. Britton's writing. Just absolutely love the way she uses scripture and brings it to "life" in biblical fiction. This was a solid 4.5 star rating. I couldn't give it a full five because I personally didn't pick up much faith wise. This book touched on forgiveness and clinging to God which I loved.

I always look forward to a Barbara Britton book. They're wonderful and exciting and they make us take time to think about how we go about our daily lives.
I think some of most of us would be lost without our electronic devices or many other things that we use daily. I know, I'm guilty of that myself.
But I'm trying to give God credit for the many things He has blessed us with. Like waking up each day, our health, family and fellowship in church.

Barbara M. Britton's Heavenly Lights: Noah's Journey: A powerful story of a bold Shepherdess who must provide for her sisters, while facing obstacles that may stand in the way of love. Each day draws them closer to that great day when they will settle their land!

Noah was a favorite of mine from the first book in the series. She challenges others views, while recognizing God's authority. Her acceptance of her friend and shepherd, Jeremiah, was refreshing. I found his character intriguing from the

They each have something to prove...

I've really been waiting for this story since I was about halfway through the first book in The Daughters Of Zelophehad series. I couldn't help but wonder how a romance between Noah and Jeremiah might play out. Trust me, I can say that in all my wonderings I had no real clue where Barbara M. Britton would take these two before they can conquer the seemingly insurmountable odds and find the love they've each been hoping and praying for.

heavenly lights is a sweet tale that takes place in the shadow of the battle of Jericho and Ai.
I was really excited to try this new-to- me author.
While I stumbled a little bit in getting into the story at first, I was enjoying the story by the halfway point.
I am used to a bit more description in historical fiction set in Biblical times, this story was took a more simple, easy approach to telling the story. I can see this being perfect for someone who wants to try BF without the lengthy descript

Well written and researched series about the daughters of Zelophehad. This story was about Noah, the shepherdess, and her trials as she performed her work during a time when women worked only in the home. Her acceptance and marriage were unique and the works of Ms. Britton are well researched and written. Enjoyable.

Another excellent book in this amazing series! Barbara Britton has done an amazing job bringing to life the story of the five orphaned daughters of Zelophehad. Heavenly Lights conveys Noah's journey as a shepherdess, something rather uncommon in her day. The hero is also unlikely, as Jeremiah cannot hear or speak, but that didn't stop him from totally stealing my heart. Britton once again packs a touching romance between the pages of a Biblical adventure. Heavenly Lights is a wonderful faith-fil ...more

The third story in the Daughters of Zelophehad series features Noah, a young shepherdess who is a force to be reckoned with. 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.

Woo, this romance was a little steamier than the one in the first book! (Still appropriate for Christian Fiction). I liked that we sometimes had a chapter from the man’s point of view. Also, I thought the plot was going to twist a certain way towards the end, but it didn’t. And I’m glad of that. Part of me wanted it to, but it wouldn’t have been real life if it had happened.

Author Barbara M. Britton continues the story of the Daughters of Zelophehad in this second book in the series, Heavenly Lights: Noah’s Journey. The series is based on the Biblical reference in Numbers to five sisters granted the right to inherit land after their father’s death since he left no sons.

Heavenly Lights is the story of the second eldest daughter, a shepherdess who carries out her responsibilities with skill, compassion, and strength. Granted permission to marry a man of her choosing

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:

Book 2 of the Daughters of Zelophehad: Heavenly Lights: Noah’s 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 is the second in the Biblical Novel series, Daughters of Zelophehad.

We meet beautiful, intelligent, and strong Noah in the first title, LIONESS, MAHLAH’S 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 family’s rightful stake to land after the Tribes of Israel reclaim their promised land from the idol-worshippers. That fact, however, makes the sisters serious targ

Having enjoyed getting to know Noah and Jeremiah in the previous book in this series, Lioness: Mahlah’s 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 other—both emotionally and physically, in light of Jeremiah’s inability to either hear or speak—and from the first pages of this story, we also got to see how well they worked together, tending their livestock through eve ...more

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

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 aren’t 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 guess ...more

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 continu ...more

In oldest sister Mahlah’s journey, the five daughters of Zelophehad were granted their father’s inheritance in the Promised Land. Now Moses is dead, and Joshua leads the Israelites in conquering Jericho.

Noah, sister two, is a shepherdess and enjoys the company of shepherd Jeremiah, a deaf mute. Jeremiah’s brother Keenan decides Noah can provide him with heirs, plus he’d get her land when she marries him. He tries to trick her into marriage by believing Jeremiah is killed in the battle for Ai. T

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 author’s 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 man’s profession. Her love for her work in the fields, and for a deaf-mute shepherd are threatened, but her faith in God remains strong.
