Freedom's Stand, the sequel to J. M. Windle's novel Veiled Freedom, reveals a story of justice, bravery, trust, and love. In the days leading up to a pivotal election, aid worker Amy Mallory, ex-terrorist Jamil, and security contractor Steve Wilson become immersed in some of Afghanistan's religious and political turmoil. When they find themselves together again, facing danger and the loss of those who are dear to them, they are forced to ask themselves what they truly believe and whether they are willing to stand by it no matter the cost.

Jamil has left behind the New Hope aid compound in order to spread the Gospel but now faces fear of persecution from his fellow Afghanis. He holds to the hope of the story in Daniel 3 which tells of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego's escape from the fiery furnace, but he can't remove from his mind the fear that if he faces his own furnace, he may not be saved. Amy Mallory, having just returned from the United States to her project at New Hope, has found that things have changed drastically in her absence and that some of her charges have been given away in arranged marriages. Frustrated with the restraints of the Afghani culture and her own limitations, Amy struggles to be strong while trying to help the people she loves. Special Forces veteran Steve Wilson is in Afghanistan as a favor to a friend, but when he finds himself surrounded by corruption and lies, he begins to look for some greater purpose for his life, something to hold to when everything else fails. All three individuals seek what is good and just; however, in the midst of the riots and demonstrations, their situations have gotten more precarious and the justice they seek may come at great cost.

Freedom's Stand is certainly an intriguing story: a mixture of love, fear, hope, and redemption tied up with the cultural and political issues surrounding the characters. The struggles the main characters face as they try to seek both justice and forgiveness are thought provoking, and the love they learn to understand is beautiful to see. I would recommend this novel to anyone who embraces a good story, the search for freedom, and the sense of hope Christ provides. – Chelsea Molin, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

    This review was written for Freedom's Stand.
    I have to admit that when I began this book, I really was not sure what I would think. It was a different sort of book than I normally read. I generally do not read books that deal with the afterlife. It was a little different to have the main character spend most of his life in the book as a dead man.

    As I continued to read the book, I was greatly impressed by the author's ability to tell a compelling story and create such intriguing characters. I cannot say that Daniel was someone I actually liked. I know a lot of reviewers felt sorry for him and grew to like him, but I cannot say I ever did. The end was actually a bit of a disappointment for me in that respect. I will say that the author minced no words when describing his depraved past.

    The thing that disturbed me most about the book was that it took a different view of the afterlife than I believe. I was able to set all that aside, but I do not like the idea of someone getting a second chance after death to make everything right--especially a character like Daniel. In my opinion, all the pain and suffering he felt after death did not atone for the atrocities he did while alive. I would have much preferred having the story follow the line of thinking in "A Christmas Carol" or "It's a Wonderful Life." I prefer the idea of changing your life while still alive rather than waiting for death. It would have been nice for Daniel to wake up at the end and realize everything was a dream and that he still had a chance to right some wrongs while alive.

    I realize that I come from the perspective of an evangelical Christian, and that could turn some people off to my review, and that is fine. The stories I mentioned are favorites of mine that deal with people coming back from the dead as angels or ghosts. Those stories can still be enjoyed by me in spite of my personal beliefs. Understand that my issues with the book were making things right while still alive instead of waiting until after death.

    My only other complaint was the ending. I felt that the author somewhat rushed the last chapter or two, and I would have preferred a little more explanation at that point. But that is just my preference.

    Would I recommend this book? I really depends on many things. If you are one who enjoys a well-written story about divine justice and the afterlife, this may very well be the book for you. I cannot fault the author for writing a book that embodied a clever tale with a variety of characters and situations. However, if you are like me and prefer to see people handle the issues of their lives before they die, this book may not be the one for you.

    I received a copy of this book for free in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are one hundred percent my own.

    The sequel to 'Veiled Freedom', 'Freedom's Stand' returns to Afghanistan to continue the stories of Jamil- former suicide bomber turned itinerant health worker and teacher of Isa Masih, Amy Mallory- humanitarian aid worker, and Steve Wilson- private security contractor who is looking for a mission to believe in. All three are searching for love and freedom. But in a country where political and religious injustice runs rampant, the cost of either may be higher than they realize...

    After I read this book, it made the rounds of my sisters, cousins, aunts, uncles and assorted other friends and family. It's finally come back to me for another reading and I enjoyed it just as much the second and third times through. It is a delight to read a novel where the truth of Scripture is presented with such passion and accuracy! Jeanette Windle definitely knows her military, her Afghanistan, and her Bible. There is only one small complaint I would make, and that is that when I first discovered Windle's novels I was so thrilled that they were so long! Finally, a book that took more than an evening to read. But since Tyndale started publishing her books they seem to get shorter and shorter. Mrs. Windle, your fans in New Zealand say 'the longer the better!'

    'Freedom's Stand' is no light-and-fluffy story to be read and forgotten, but a sobering and challenging account of the hardships that belivers in other nations face, and a reminder to pray for God's people who do not enjoy the same freedoms we do.

    What's a literary fiction/romance/chick lit/YA girl like me doing in an action-adventure place like this? That's what I wondered when I first opened FREEDOM'S STAND by Jeanette Windle. Its Aghanistan setting seemed as much out of my comfort zone as its characters' lives of intrigue and adventure.

    In this sequel to Windle's Christy-nominated VEILED FREEDOM, Amy, a relief worker, returns to join forces with Steve, a former Special Forces officer, and Jamil, her former assistant and recent convert to Christianity. No, this didn't seem like my kind of book at all. But I kept reading. Why?

    First, because the characters and I share a passion for people and for the cause of Christ. Second, because this story comes direct from both headlines and the prayer letters of friends who also work in NGOs (non-governmental organizations) in that part of the world. And third, because the author's careful descriptions, realistic dialogue, and powerful plotline compelled me. Windle pulled me into her story and never let me go.

    Deception, suspense, imprisonment, and persecution amid inward and outward battles for faith and freedom--this book has it all. Read VEILED FREEDOM first, then hurry on into FREEDOM'S STAND. You'll be glad you did.

    Even if it's not your kind of book.

    A novel about the plight of women and children in Afganistan and of the conditions to which they are subjected and religious persecution. From working as carpet weavers, illiteracy to young girls being given to men as wives that are not of the girls choosing. Encompasses the lives of Amy Mallory from New Hope Foundation (a safe haven for women and children), Jamil a healer, Farah a girl who is looking for more in life and other prominant characters. This book does tear at the heart and will make the reader reflect on the hardships these people face everyday. I am happy that I live in a free country and have the freedom of choice.

    This book does have excellent character development and starts out well but however I did have trouble staying into the novel a little ways through and am not sure it can be a stand alone type being second in a series it definately needs to be read in order. Dialogue and scene works and it challenged me in my faith. I would recommend it but only after reading the first.
