Traitors by Sarah Elisabeth Sawyer is another epic Christian historical novel. It is the second book in the Choctaw Tribune series which I am loving.
The action is set in 1893, concerning the Choctaw people who are still receiving abuse and being viewed as second class citizens. “God created only one race – the human race.”
Those building their lives on wealth and power go to extraordinary lengths to silence the truth. “My brother stands for truth… makes him unpopular with a great many.” We don’t need the affirmation of man. We need to speak the truth and live with a clear conscience.
Once again we follow our plucky young heroine who is ahead of the times in her thinking and actions. Not content with just writing the truth, she is concerned with tracking down the perpetrators of crime and bringing them to justice.
Names are important. Family names produce both positive and negative connotations as characters try to conceal their true identity.
The World’s Fair in Chicago features. The vivid descriptions help the place to come alive for the reader.
I am loving this series. It’s on to book three for me now.
I would like to leave you with my favourite quote:
“Jesus Christ isn’t just a good way; He’s the only way.”
I received this book for free. A favourable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.
