4.0 out of 5 stars An Inspiring Novel, October 21, 2009
This review is from: Journey of Hope: Two Novels (Mass Market Paperback)
"I met a girl today. She was looking out over the sea, tears clouding her blue eyes. She was the prettiest girl I've ever seen. And surely God has sent her, for her heart is kind and full of love. And together, we will sail to Africa..." written in Ian's journal from the first day on their journey. Heather Barlow is the main character and her whole life she's dreamed of going to Africa on a missionary trip, so when she graduates high school that's exactly what she does. On her journey she meets Ian McCollum who teaches her that what she is going to see isn't going to be easy, but they need to help one person at a time. Heather meets a little girl named Kia who has a little sister with a cleft palate chin named Alice. The only problem is that Alice is in a village surounded by rebels and soliders and she has no way of getting help to survive. Ian takes a plane to the village, but before it lands it gets shot down and Ian dies. Leaving Heather crushed by Ian's death, she knows that she is the last hope for Alice's survival. Does she have enough courage to try and save her? I've read Lurlene McDaniel's books before, but this is by far my favorite. You should read this awesome book because it catches your attention and keeps you interested the whole time. I couldn't stop reading the book because it was so intriguing and exciting that I wanted to know what happened next. Another reason why this book is so great is because it is a heart-warming story for anyone who likes to read. Not only is there romance between Heather and Ian, there is also adventure on every page. The third reason why you should read this book is because there are many life lessons and a sense of hope throughout the book. With all of the death happening in Africa, the missionaries still bring hope to the people living there. Also, lessons on not taking the little things for granted and knowing that helping the world means helping one person at a time are all throughout this book. It is an amazing story to read because it's attention grabbing, heart-warming, and supplies a sense of hope. You will be glad you bought A Journey of Hope by Lurlene McDaniel after you finish reading the incredible story.
