reliWIAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5So so goodJanuary 14, 2022reliWIAge: 25-34Gender: femaleOne of my goals in reading is to become a Charles Martin completist. I don't know if I will manage this or not because he has written quite a few books, but each book I have read of his I have fully and completely enjoyed.
"I don't really understand it, but somehow, in some impossible way, love reached down inside me, took out all the old and dirty, the scars and the stains that no soap anywhere would ever wash out. And love didn't just clean me but made me new. And maybe the craziest part of that is how I see me." And how she saw herself was whole and clean.
This is the second book in the Shepherd Murphy series. Murph is heavily involved in rescuing girls from human trafficking. He is very successful, but it comes at a price. Someone is out to get him. This book is fiction, and I don't know how much of it would even be realistic in real life, but I really like the idea that the way Murph will do whatever it takes to rescue these girls is the same way that Jesus has come to rescue us. He leaves the 99 to come and look for me.
"Either shine a light on yesterday and expose it or forfeit the joy of now and the hope of tomorrow.....left untreated, experiential pain becomes a fortress in our gut that houses a lie spoken by fear. And behind that fear is an idol of our own making. One we carve by hand when we, as self-made people, worship our own creator - us. As if we can do anything to protect ourselves."
That is what Freetown was for - to help the girls heal. It took time, but eventually most of the girls were able to go on to live a healthy life.
This book had an ending that I totally did not see coming. It made me wish that the next book was out already so I could just pick it up and keep reading. It left me wondering what I should read next that would even come close to comparing. And yet, the book was heavy so I wouldn't want a steady diet of this kind of reading either.
Warning- there are triggers in this book with human trafficking being the biggest one.
I really enjoyed this book and am eagerly awaiting the release of the next one this summer. I received this book from Thomas Nelson via NetGalley and was not required to write a positive review. All opinions expressed are my own.
FayeAge: 25-34Gender: Female4 Stars Out Of 5Edge of Your SeatSeptember 7, 2021FayeAge: 25-34Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5At times an action thriller, and at others a heart-tugging romance, Charles Martin is back with the second installment in the Murphy Shepherd series.
Picking up in the previous book, Murph continues to risk his life to safe the one, but when the traffickers target his newfound family he will stop at nothing to bring them home.
Filled with moments of non-stop action mixed with heartwarming moments, this book never stops for breath. I liked how we get to learn more about the inner workings of Free Town, as well as Murph's backstory. The story is nothing short of cinematic and larger than life, compelling and action packed, it is a difficult book to put down. Christian faith is alluded to, but not discussed plainly. Though not overly explicit this book talks about human trafficking in honest terms as well as the trauma experienced by the victims.
A must read for anyone who read The Water Keeper, as it follows the same characters as they face new challenges. Heart-tugging, romantic, and heroic you won't want to miss it.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
CaroljoFarmington, MOAge: Over 65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5A Father's LoveJuly 17, 2021CaroljoFarmington, MOAge: Over 65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Intense! This is the second book in the Murphy Shepherd series dealing with human trafficking! I doubt if any human is able to endure all that Murphy Shepherd does and survive to fight some more but it makes for a great read! I learned a lot about the rehabilitation that has to be done after victims are rescued. Sometimes a person keeps a secret because more people will benefit from that action. We all need the love of an earthly father and, even more so, the love of our heavenly father! I recommend The Letter Keeper to others. I received a complimentary e-book through NetGalley. This is my honest opinion.
