    I loved this book! I started it and couldn't put it down until I finished. What I loved: the Christian content was a real part of the story - not just Bible verses thrown in for the sake of calling it Christian; and the story was realistic and the setting was as realistic as they get. I lived in Bolivia for many years and I loved reliving through this book the taxi rides, the neighborhoods in Santa Cruz, and the ever present coca wars. The story was full of suspense as you tried to figure out how it was all going to end. I can't say enough to recommend this book, and I can't wait to read her other books!

    This book made me feel as if I were in an extremely exciting history of Bolivia class. I truly felt like I got a taste of the country from several different perspectives. I saw: why so many grow and sell drugs - even the reasonings of a big "drug lord", the hard job of the DEA, the beauty and the struggles that are Bolivia. Great book, Jeanette!!! Love all your books so far

    A Great Read

    It is rare indeed for me to have a Christian fiction book that is difficult to put down. The last few nights have been way too late as I've gone for "just until the end of this scene" and then carried on to the next.

    While at college, Sarah, the naïve young heroine falls head over heels for the handsome, smooth-talking, Nicky. She has no family, and is desperate for love. After a whirl-wind romance, of which we read very little, she marries Nicky, and he whisks her off to a new life in Bolivia. Only after the plane lands does she start to suspect all is not as ideal as she first anticipated.

    She faces a devastating twist to her dream life and desperately hangs onto belief in her husband's innocence. The tension grows as she struggles with her relationships with Nicky, her new family, and a growing awareness of the horrors of the Bolivian drug culture. She initially loathes Douglas Bradford, the DEA agent responsible for trying to bring the Cortez family and their business to their knees. However as the story develops, she soon finds herself fleeing for her life, pursued by a formidable group of enemies, and the only one to whom she can turn is the DEA agent.

    There are a number of lengthy explanations of the Christian faith, as seen through the eyes of both Sarah and Doug, and I feel at times they are too long. Having said that, at no point did I want to skip the passages, as Sarah grapples to see God in the impossible situation she faces. Sarah asks a lot of questions many of the readers will ask.

    Jeanette Windle's research has been tremendous. She displays a clear knowledge of the Bolivian drug industry, as well as the way of life of both the incredibly rich, and the desperately poor. It is a long book, and at what appeared to be the climax of the story, I noticed with disappointment that I was only half-way through the book. I thought the second half would surely be drawn out and a let down from the excitement of the first half. I couldn't have been more wrong. The tension escalated, and although some of the scenes were long, they kept me reading right until the final resolution.

    Well done, Jeannette. I will definitely be looking for more of your books.

She meets another student Nicolas Cortez from Boliva that had come to America to study. A romance begin, they are married and move to Boliva so he can work at his Dad's business. She had no idea that she would be moving in with her in-laws in a mansion.

    While all around the town people lived in huts with noting to eat, and some were homeless. There were so many homeless children, she felt her teacher instinct coming out in her and wanting to help. But she was a Cortez and all she was supposed to do is lay around or go to society meeting, which she did not like.

    As the story goes on, she started to wonder why Coca was legal to grow and everyone just saw it as another thing in the country. But all she could think about was that it was made into cocaine and sent to America and Europe for sale. This troubles her, her new husband alone with his father were gone a lot of the time and it was supposed to be just a thing but she did not like it, so she begin noticing things and listening as she became more surprised at what she heard.
