    Treasures In Dark Places by Leanna Cinquanta is the story of her personal journey to find God and help spread His message to poverty-stricken parts of northern India. Leanna leads us through thetrials of her childhood and adolescence, showing us the various times that God slowly wound His way into her heart, until she finally decided to listen to Him and follow His calling for her life. Once she acknowledges His calling, He leads her to northernIndia, where she lives with the natives and becomes a part of their community as a means by which to spread the gospel and Jesus' good news to the inhabitants.

    Leanna realizes that one woman can only do so much, and she founds TellAsia Ministries to reach out to the masses and provide aid and hope to those without.

    While I found this book to be an interesting background to Leanna's world and the reason she got into mission work, this book is not at all what I expected it to be based on the front and back covers. I had incorrectly been under the impression that it focused primarily on her work to help aid and assist children, particularly those who were orphaned or abducted and involved in sex trafficking. This portion of the story only takes up a very small amount of the book, with most of the book focusing on Leanna's own youth. While that story would be more intriguing to someone looking for a history of her personal life and ministry, it is not what I was looking for when I got the book. Overall, I'm giving it 3/5 stars, deduced mostly from the misrepresentation of the contents based on the back cover blurb.

    *Disclaimer: I received a free print edition of this book from Chosen Books for the purpose of this honest review. All opinions are my own.*

    TREASURES IN DARK PLACES

    Leanna Cinquanta

    An unusual walk with God, that depicts God as the "Found Art" Creator.

    God creates from and with, and accomplishes with those creations, combinations of unimaginable vistas.

    The Authoress' story is an aside to God revealed in this journey. This part I'd love to tweek-it's almost two separate stories held together with marshmallow creme, if it wasn't for the peanut butter...

    A tale of unusual methods in a unique pilgrimage of faith and love.

    It gives me so many ideas for audio-video, but the 'tweek' has to be done first, or it just won't be as good as it can be; and, of course there would be more!

    Best Wishes!
