A ruthless global conspiracy begins to surface, run by powerful men who can’t afford to leave any witnesses. Her life at stake, Robin doesn’t know who to trust and wonders how she can help protect innocent people. Why is God silent amid all the pain and injustice? And how do these people of faith continue to rejoice in their suffering?
Reading a novel by Ms. Windle is like taking a trip to another country. In this case, the Congo. The novel is a bit dense in its knowledge of the country, but to a certain extent that lends authenticity to the story. Though slightly predictable, I found this novel to be a page-turner. I was very interested in the back story of Michael and Robin and I really liked how Michael came across as the compassionate one while Robin was the essence of a Marine. I think this novel also was able to show the dichotomy of countries like this where there are good and bad and sometimes lots of gray. I found the novel captivating and interesting and if you have liked other novels by Ms. Windle you will really enjoy this. Spiritually, this novel deals with suffering and being a follower of Christ and provides an interesting way to think about it. Recommended!
