ruthhill74Yelm, WAAge: 35-44Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Some Mixed FeelingsDecember 22, 2013ruthhill74Yelm, WAAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4In some ways, I have mixed feelings about this book. I found the story quite exciting and intriguing. I would call it a thriller and/or political intrigue. The characters were quite interesting and well-developed. The first chapter succeeded in drawing me in the way some books never do. It was an easy-to-read book, and the style was pretty good. Lisa, Zach, and Sam were quite intriguing, and every time you thought you had it figured out, the book took another twist or turn.
I appreciated the themes in the book. After all, God does ask us to forgive no matter what. He alone can restore relationships that have been completely destroyed. He never gives up on us. And it was truly nice to see characters pray and turn to God in their times of need. It was nice to see that the profanity in the book was very mild, and there was no sex. That is always a nice bonus when reading a book--especially one of this nature.
I truly struggled with the almost paranormal-like portions of the book. I understand that God can send people back from the dead to talk to the living, but He doesn't make a habit of doing that. And for someone to come back from the dead and suddenly clear up misconceptions seems a little far-fetched. I realize that this was not the focus of the book, but I struggle when something like this is in a Christian novel. I know my views are probably a little bit different than many people in this area, but I could have done without this portion of the book.
My other criticism is the last twenty or so pages of the book. I feel like the author tried to wrap the book up quickly, and a few things happened that seemed to not make sense. I got a little confused, and although some it may have been an attempt at realism, it just happened too quickly. I think the book ended a little too abruptly, but that is just my opinion.
But all in all, you can see that I have given this book a four-star rating. Any criticisms that I have pointed out do not change the fact that the book is pretty good, and if you enjoy political intrigue and fairly clean novels, this is a book you should definitely check out.
I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.
MaureenTSyracuse NYGender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Betrayal and ForgivenessJuly 24, 2012MaureenTSyracuse NYGender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4Lisa Rivers is a genius who grew up without her father's love. She never could figure out what she had done to make him hate her. Lisa has been groomed by the Government ...they paid for her education, and she had a job as soon as she graduated college at 17.
She has developed a program where no one will ever be kidnapped or lost again, without being able to be found. Because of this she is in danger, as is her father and her equally smart little brother.
Things are really not as they appear and the book will keep you page turning. There is a lot of heartache, betrayal, and we find them turning to God at last for forgiveness.
When Lisa is kidnapped and brutally beaten, all of their world turn upside down. Will anything ever be the same? Who can you trust? At times it seems that there is no one. Just when you think you know what will happen, something else changes. Wow!
This is a well written story, and am looking forward to reading more by this author.
I received this book from the author Linda Armstrong-Miller, and Pump Virtual Book Tours, and was not required to give a positive review.
