About the Author

Lurlene McDaniel is the #1 author of inspirational fiction for young adults. The author lives in Chattanooga, TN.

More About the Author

I was born in Philadelphia PA, grew up (mostly) in Hialeah FL, graduated from the University of South Florida, Tampa FL (go Bulls!) and currently live in Chattanooga TN---I'm an American citizen by birth, and Southern by the grace of God.

I have a brother, three years younger, married, and mathematically gifted. I am totally without math skills.

The books I write, the topics and subject matter, grew out of my firstborn son's diagnosis of diabetes at age 3.
Infinite reward that comes to me from my work.... when a grown reader lets me know that reading my books inspired her to seek a profession that helps others. I have wonderful letters saying, "Today I graduated from nursing/medical school."

Now that's a gift of joy!

I have read Lurlene McDaniel before, and these two novels were no different from the three great ones in the Angels Trilogy which I highly recommend.

After I complete the book, I just want to read it even more... I don't want it to end.

I have read Lurlene McDaniel before, and these two novels were no different from the three great ones in the Angels Trilogy which I highly recommend. The first novel of this joint book is Angel of Mercy. It involves Heather Barlow journeying to Africa on a hospital mercy ship following her graduation as a way to discover her idealistic dreams. She has been inspired by her parents' stories of their experiences in the Peace Corps. Once aboard, she meets Ian and is instantly attracted to him. In Africa, she learns much abtou herself and often the harsh realities she never expected to encounter. After an unexpected tragedy, Heather bravely risks herself for a resuce mission of a young orphan's sister in a war-torn area. Through her bravery, she leaves Africa extremely well-liked. But once she returns home, she feels like no one has chnaged but herself, her attempts at explaining her new philosophy to her friends, parents, and self-centered sister Amber unheard. Through much difficulty, Heather convinces her plastic surgeon mother to accompany her back to Africa with her friend Boyce to perform a desperately needed operation on the baby she rescued just months before. But an unexpected turn of events leave Amber somehow makign the journey. In Africa she has her own adventures and learns a great deal about herself and her goals, largely in part to her romantic interest Boyce. Tragedy once again strikes the Barlow family, and Amber and her mother are yanked home in fright. I highly recommend this book.

I have read many books but I have to say this my absolute favorite, including the 23 other Lurlene McDaniel books I've read. I couldn't put it down! It was very inspirational. My friends(who also read the book) and I plan on going on a mission trip after we finish school, but the thought would probably never have crossed our minds without first reading this book.

Lurelene McDaniel should be very proud of all the wonderful books she has written. I loved the Journey of Hope books. I have read them many times because they are such an inspiration. If you are looking for a great book you should read this one.

When I first brought this book, I berely had time to read it with all the work I had to do, once I had free time I began to read it and I just couldn't put it down. I thought this is very inspirational and the ending was so touching because you got to know these characters very well throughout the story. You will know what I am talking about if you read the book. After I complete the book, I just want to read it even more... I don't want it to end. All of Lurlene's books are the same, she is my favorite author and I've read most of her books already. I definitely recommend reading this one, its one of my favorites!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book combines two novels both linked and both equally good. These two novels are different than some of McDaniel's other popular books. Yet they are books everyone should read. But don't expect miracles and perfect endings. McDaniel doesn't write like that. She writes about real world stuff and that includes people who die, even if you want a miracle.

The first novel is about a High School graduate who takes 6 months off to go to Africa and help a people who know nothing about life in the Free World only hunger and want. She finds herself with a native child who dies in her arms. She finds love. She finds God in the lives of the missionaries she works with at the hospital. And she finds adventure like she never dreamed of. I had mixed emotions on the ending. A sort of double ending one with tears and one with joy. But she was changed forever.

The second novel picks up where the first left off. Much difficulty in getting her sister and parents to understand what she had been through and her need to help back in Africa, especially a little baby she has rescued from death. Finally her mother ( a surgeon) agrees to go back with her for 6 weeks to help the child surgically and many others. But just before they leave Heather gets sick and her sister takes her place. And so her sister takes up the experience of helping these people who need help so badly and has her own adventures and love experience. She meets friends of her sisters and makes her own. Again the ending is a tough ending sort of bitter sweet. It was not exactly the way I would have wanted it to end but it is a very Lurlene McDaniel type ending.

These books are both page turners. They both have their share of excitement and suspense.
