Colleen Coble does it again! I cannot say enough good things about this writer. From the first page, I was hooked. The mystery, suspense, and romance were expertly weaved into a story of deception and trust. The plot was interesting and kept me guessing the entire time.
Lani Tagama was my favorite character. After her ordeal in Black Sands, she becomes a Christian. It's nice to see the human side of someone who is a new Christian. She struggles to put her trust in someone she can't see, and that makes her more real. Ben Mahoney is struggling to cope with the accident that claimed his friend's sight. He is also struggling with trusting the One who controls all things in our lives. The author did a very good job of portraying their development in this area.
The message, as I've stated before, is trust. Learning to trust that God has everything under control, especially when you feel your life is spinning out of control, is hard. Colleen Coble does a great job of weaving that message throughout the story.
Overall, this was a very enjoyable story and I'm sad the series has come to an end. Go read it, today!
Really enjoyed reading this book. I felt like I was actually on the island with all the sights, sounds and fragrances all around me. I learned about orchids and more importantly, about how it feels to be sightless even if only briefly.What really drew me to purchase this book was the interaction between Ben,Lani and Fisher.I am a dog lover and appreciated Ben's dedication to training dogs for the blind.
This was a good book. It was the second of Colleen Coble's books that I have read. I purchased it because I enjoy the "Women of Faith" series of book selections. I usually don't like mysteries or reading about people getting murdered as my reading time is usually before bedtime!! However, Colleen's storyline is so solid and structured that it's much more than just a "murder mystery". It was a real page turner for me and a book I would definitely recommend to others.
