Great story lines. Human interest. One of the best books I have read this year. Very emotional as I know we lost a lot of Americans to their prison camps. Some POW's refused to come back to the US and chose to remain there. Shame, guilt, who knows. I just pray that they forgave themselves, I know God has forgiven them.
Let's get the names sorted out first - no Molster, only McCormick. A much more suitable name for the guy. -
Next, I admit that I have been hoping and praying that the language would improve, (compare previous books). Euphemistic cursing is NEVER helpful in a book pointed mainly to the Christian market. (Leave that to Grisham and Clancy?) About 14 or 15 times! And in each instance I can supply forceful wording that is not offensive to anyone. These reviews probably won't get to Mr. Brown or the editors. Mr. B. praises them "born to be editors". O.K. Maybe so. But Who IS responsible for the totally, completely, absolutely, entirely superfluous and in a 'Christian' book unacceptable cussing? Are the editors persuading the author to include or is the author insisting the stuff stays? In the instances where cursing is referred to, the reader's imagination is well able to fill in the blanks - IF he wants to. My challenge: Try it and see if the LORD will not bless you more for a clean book!
The storyline, the people, everything is what I was hoping for - suspense and not wanting to put the book down. To me it's one of those start to finish reads.
