The reader is drawn into the story from the start as the opening gets you asking questions and trying to predict the action. Little teasers appear throughout before the jaw dropping ending.
Being set in Africa, life contrasts with America. Here, to be a Christian is dangerous. To convert to Christianity from Islam is positively life threatening. Baptisms must happen behind closed doors.
The focus of the novel is a missionary programme, setting up an orphanage, supporting new Christians and with church building on the agenda.
God is a God of second chances and new beginnings. The past is gone. It is time to trust God and step into the future.
The themes of forgiveness feature in the novel.
A great afternoon’s read.
