I received this book free of charge from the author or publisher.
Mrs. Kelley’s characters are so realistically portrayed that, having lived and worked in similar but different Muslim cultures, I could give a real life person for every single character I encountered in these books! Mia had so many of my own thoughts and reactions over the past 13 years of living in Muslim countries that at times I wondered if Mrs. Kelley had been reading my journal! But the fact of the matter is that Mrs. Kelley herself has lived in several similar settings so she is writing from experience, and she does it superbly!
I seriously can’t think of a single thing I didn’t like about these books. What I loved most is how they moved my heart to prayer and action for my Muslim friends and neighbors and those I don’t know around the world. It’s easy to forget how God is moving, and these books reminded me and spurred me to join Him in His work in any way I can!
Another thing I really appreciated about these books is how the characters, both major and minor, grew so realistically. None of them had a perfectly linear upward or downward growth pattern; instead there were highs and lows, moments of awe-inspiring faith followed by sinfully ignoring the guidance of the Holy Spirit and then repentance and then more upward growth, then times of distraction and stagnation, etc. No one in the book ever “arrived” spiritually and no one seemed to be a completely lost cause as seems to happen in a lot of Christian fiction. Every single character was on their own journey, and I was so impressed with how the author portrayed each journey so masterfully! Mrs. Kelley was even realistic enough and brave enough to have some good and likeable characters fall away from the Lord and not come back. It hurt just like it does in real life and was again a reminder to pray for some specific people as well as unknown ones on similar paths.
One word of caution: these books deal with some intense topics like female circumcision and harsh persecution so I strongly advise parents to preview these before handing them to teens. Nonetheless, I highly recommend these books to men and women alike who want insight into how the Lord is working in the Muslim world and in the lives of Westerners who live there! It will help you pray more effectively and support those you know living in these countries, and it might just move you to step out and talk to your Muslim neighbor across the street or maybe even move your family around the world!
Mia is American and has been in the Sudan with her husband for three years. I hear stories where Americans travel to foreign countries to speak about God. The author so eloquently showed how Mia gained friends about the Muslim women. I loved how Mia took Halimah under her wings and converted her. The book is a reminder that there is real danger for Christians living there. For Halimah to convert was a blessing but she must be careful. Can you imagine having to hide what you believe in , just so no harm will come to you? There are so many people around the world risking their lives everyday because they have been called to the mission field.
I found It very interesting to read about the beliefs of others. It may be hard to grasp but I respect their religion and their right to believe in something even if we don't understand. I found Mia and her husband to be willing to share Jesus with others knowing they could be in danger daily. The author did an amazing job of researching for this book and the details are realistic and easy to picture. I loved reading about Mia and her heart to share God with others. Her love for the people in Sudan was so genuine.
Halimah and Ramia were very intriguing women. The author does an amazing job of letting us understand their culture and what they face everyday . I love reading about the foods they ate and the breathtaking land they called home. One of the most interesting things I found about the book was how much Mia and her husband wanted to go back to Sudan. It was so hard for Mia to adjust to living in America again. God is a merciful God and He showed Mia that he had new plans for her right in her own state. This is one of those books that stay with you forever. Thank you for writing a story that opened my eyes to other cultures and to people who are not afraid to share His word no matter where they are.
I received a copy of this book from LitFuse . The review is my own opinion.
