Publisher's Description

While former Marine lieutenant Robin Duncan is no stranger to corruption or conspiracy, she has always been able to tell the good guys from the bad, and the Congo jungle at first seems no different. But as her security team tries to track down an insurgent killer, Robin has to face a man who broke her trust years ago, and she discovers the gray areas extend farther in this jungle wilderness than she anticipated.

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?

    Robin Duncan agrees to work as a translator on a security team to protect mining operations in the Congo in order to provide money for her niece's operation. She never expected to meet Dr. Michael Stewart whom she had loved in Afghanistan when she and her brother Chris had served there together. It was Michael who had taken Chris in a medivac helicopter to a hospital before she was also hit and airlifted to a hospital. By the time Robin recovered enough to inquire, she learned her brother was dead, Michael had been sent stateside and she never heard from him again. But one of the first friends she made in the Congo on arriving there was Michael's sister, Miriam, who was married to an African doctor. And through Miriam Robin learned that Michael himself had been badly injured as the chopper they were on had been hit as they were lifting off and her brother had died. It was actually her father's fault that she never heard from Michael as he hadn't been allowed to speak to her and her father destroyed his letters. Miriam also heard a voice sounding like Robin who said Michael was never to call again, but it wasn't Robin. Miriam and Robin became close friends. It was Miriam who taught her how to have peace and joy in spite of circumstances and to rely on God for help. Miriam also gave her a Bible that gave her the courage to stand up to her boss and send the messages that would bring crucial help when it looked like evil would destroy Michael. What did Ephraim explain was his deepest prayer? Who was everyone blaming for all the problems and how was he managing to survive? How did they prepare to defend their last stronghold? How was Robin's niece able to have the necessary operation? Who was the real villain and how was he defeated?

    I loved this book! The story itself was fascinating, and it also served as a reminder that God is always in control, and His plans are so much better than our own.

    Congo Dawn is a gripping story set in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Good and evil come into conflict in a variety of ways, and one major theme is that it's not always clear which side is which. Finding the courage to do what is right is another, as well as forgiveness for past wrongs.

    The reader also learns some of the history of the Congo, as well as its current political and economic problems. Neither the moral nor history lessons, however, overshadow a well-told story that keeps increasing in suspense.

    There is one chapter, in the latter part of the book, where the action slows down briefly for an extended discussion of how God brings good out of suffering. I enjoy books that discuss ideas as well as tell a great story, and it's a lesson relevant to everyone. I just hope readers with less patience for such discussions won't rush through it, eager to get on with the action.

    Robin Duncan, former Marine, works as a translator for an international corporation. Her team is sent to the Congo and she discovers a conspiracy involving a mining operation. She doesn't know who to trust and must rely on God.

    I thought the story was good, but had a hard time getting into it. About one third of the way through, the storyline was more interesting to me, and I'm glad I finished the book.

    Wow! What a book! Not for the fainthearted but contains quite a lesson on forgiveness. It did take me a little while to get into the book and figure out what was happening but then I was riveted. A few years ago I would have thought this to be way too far fetched with all the killings and brutalities which occur in the book or are referenced as past events, but I know these things have occurred in Rwanda and Uganda. So, unfortunately, this seems all too real and possible that it could occur in the Congo darkness. Yet, through the events, God's light continues to shine, giving peace to those who allow it. Robin was a great character, immersed in her job, yet wanting to help her family.
