Editorial Reviews

Review

I believe Miriam Ezeh's triumphant novel should be on the shelves of schools across the country--and not just Catholic schools. I recommend this book highly for readers of all faiths and all ages--but particularly for impressionable teens and young adults who will benefit so much from its messages about faith, hope, chastity, sacrificial love, and of course, peace. ~Laura on Goodreads

I read this book weeks ago and the story is still with me. I can imagine it playing out on the big screen as a dynamic movie. Catholicism is beautifully portrayed alongside a chaste, moral love story. Highly recommended reading for teens and adults. ~Nancy Carabio Belanger, popular fiction writer of "Olivia and the Little Way," "Olivia's Gift," and "The Gate."

"The Story of Peace" is a well written and inspirational story. The author, Miriam Ezeh, quickly draws the reader into the lives of a girl named Peace and her younger brother, Lawrence. The brother and sister are left to care for themselves when the horrors of war leave them orphans. Peace uses her deep faith in Christ to face the life and death challenges of an imperfect world.

"The Story of Peace" is a tribute to all people who embrace the will of God with open hearts and who hold fast to the belief in the Mercy of Jesus Christ.

Joan L. Kelly, author of Christian adventure stories

This was a very engaging book from the begining. As I read each page I could not wait to read the next. I was often engrossed and seemed to be preasent in the moment..intriguing. The lessons in the book were phenomenal and I think everyone old enough to read, should read this. It definitely brings to life our moral values and how we can live them in this day and age without seeming an outsider to society. It is a must read and I can not wait to read this author's next book. Every high school should carry this book in their library.

This book can be used in any highschool literature class, it's also entertaining, gripping, thoughtful, intriguing... It's great easy reading that comes with a great message of hope while also teaching others of the importance and significance of culture and faith. Any religious denomination can read this. It does a great job of pointing that out because it doesn't matter what type of church you go to, we all should be encouraged and have hope and faith that great things will come if we believe.

It's a page turner, you can wait to find out what's going to happen next. The author also does a GREAT job in pulling you into the atmosphere and the characters are so well described they could be someone you know.

It's great, can't wait to read more!!

Miriam Ezeh's haunting Catholic novel "The Story of Peace" absolutely blew me away. Aimed at teen and young adult readers, it is a deeply moving and beautifully written book that will touch the heart of any adult as well. Days after finishing it, the character of Peace Udomm (a beautiful young African woman who has seen her village and her family torn apart by war) stays with me. She is the most selfless, loving, humble, faith-filled person, despite the fact that her life has been anything but peaceful and easy.

After she loses her mother and father, in a brutal act of terrorism during a war with a neighboring village, Peace (barely more than a girl herself) must become a mother to her younger brother, a teenager named Lawrence. Unlike Peace, Lawrence is consumed with anger and longs to punish an entire village—the innocent along with the guilty—to avenge his parents’ deaths. He becomes part of an underground group whose plan is to fight violence with violence, and Peace is sick with worry. Her one goal in life is to take care of her brother and keep him safe from harm, and she doesn’t know what to do.

Enter a devout young American doctor named John Williams, whose late mother was born in Peace’s village. He has reverted to the Catholic Faith, after having fallen away, and has returned to Africa to settle in his mother’s birthplace. His plan is to set up a medical clinic to help all the needy people of that war-torn area. John is immediately taken with the quiet and serenely beautiful young woman named Peace, who works so hard and so selflessly to make a home for herself and her brother.

Peace is a fictional character, yet her heroism presents us with the undeniable truth that we are never forsaken when we have faith in Jesus. Whenever we are challenged by adversity, vengeance and despair may seem to be the easiest paths to choose. However, in Miriam Ezeh's lovely book, The Story of Peace, we are reminded of the unsurpassable power of obedience to God.
Follow Peace, a beautiful, faithful young Catholic woman, as she confronts the tragic circumstances of her life by immersing herself in prayer, forgiveness, chastity and hope. The Story of Peace by Miriam Ezeh can be purchased here @ Amazon.com. This beautiful story is not to be missed!
The Story of Peace by Miriam Ezeh is so lovely! I really enjoyed this and felt spiritually nourished by the values so faithfully presented!

Miriam Ezeh's Peace is a perfect role model for teenage girls (but I'm an adult and I couldn't put it down). They will enjoy the story of this courageous, chaste young woman who fell in love, risked everything, and held fast to her Catholic faith during the suffering of a tribal war in her African village. "I knew at once that I, too, must carry on," Peace says. "Jesus did not give up in the face of sufferings much more severe than mine would ever be; sufferings which He endured for my sake...Countless times I saw manifestations of His love in my life. No, I would not despair; to do so would be disastrous." If you pick up this book, be prepared to be absorbed completely in yet another compelling novel from Bezalel Books.
