Desert Captive by Sarah Sawyer is an exciting Christian historical western. It is the fourth book in the Doc Beck Western series. I recommend reading the previous books first to witness character progression.
The story is mainly set in a town ruled by bandits. Given the history of the town, the reader is reminded of the Garden of Eden – it was created perfect but then sin entered and corrupted lives.
We see pockets of kindness and normality within the corruption.
There is a beautiful bond between humans and animals.
The reader witnesses the growth of a new Christian in Just Jimmy as he discovers the power of prayer.
Once more Sarah Sawyer has created another thrilling tale surrounding Doc Beck. I am hoping there will be more stories to follow.
I received a free copy from the author. A favourable review was not required. All opinions are my own.
