Amazing captivating writing!!! Had me so deep in the story that I just couldnt wait till morning to finish it.
All characters were developed well. Danika was a perfection of strength and honesty!! I felt really bad about Sandra. Alex a picture of compassion and patience kept me wishing for more parts with him. I absolutelly loved his mom and I hope in the future I will treat my son same way, instead of rallying for him like a mother hen. Amazing woman!!
Jacob is probably the character I felt for the most. I have gone through the path of grief/depression (my poor family had lots of patiance to pull me through) and his reaction and behavior were accurate. But sometimes it takes to loose all we hold dear to realize we need to get a grip on ourselves.
I loved the illigal immigrants and border patrol description. It is hard to comprehand what those poor people go through to get here for a brighter future. And the dangers and sacrifice of border patrol, I never realized was of this magnum.
I want to thank SusannGary Fryman for sharing a this amazing book with me! Im sorry for keeping it on my nightstand for so long, if I only knew the treasure in it, I would have read it the moment I got it.. :)
In Sworn to Protect, DiAnn Mills takes us inside the U.S. Border Patrol through Agent Danika Morales, a world of tension and suspense where each day men and women lay their lives on the line. Through her characters, Ms. Mills presents a well-researched and balanced view of the issue of illegal immigration with compassion, honesty and integrity for both sides through the characters and setting of her story. The people in this book are fully developed, well-crafted and engaging. You care about them right from the beginning. You are pulled into their stories, their dreams, their struggles. The antagonists are complete people, not stereotypes. Their true natures are not revealed until the end.The suspense, romantic and the Christian elements are very believable.This book is a definite page turner as you follow Agent Morales on duty protecting our borders, at home dealing with widowhood and a handicapped child, tentatively exploring the possibility of a romantic relationship all while her career and life are threatened by forces and people out to kill her.I highly recommend this book.
All I can really say is that this book was great! It was very well written and the story was not one I had ever read before which was a joy all in its self. I have read many books and have re-read the same stories over and over again. So to come across a story I had not read before made my very happy! Everyone should read this book!
I am not drawn to mysteries/thrillers, but I am drawn to most of Diann's works - and this one was a winner. I appreciated the scope of relationships, which beautifully blended with the drama and action. The reality of the horrid situations of undocumented immigrants was well presented with honesty and no overkill of their tragic treatments. Diann's careful and balanced delivery of the two opposing sides of this issues was done from a position of compassion, faith, and respect for the law - something not seen in society and open debates. Diann was not preachy, but clearly showed Jesus in the lives of her characters - which I greatly value in an era where the Gospel seems an afterthought for many stories. Both of the books in this series are well written and solid stand alone works, which I would easily recommend to others.
