Carol is beginning a charming friendship with a widower connected with the Kinsman project. But even that friendship won’t stand in the way when Carol’s heart is touched by a special message shared at church. A young woman shares the trauma of girls trapped into prostitution, sold by family or kidnapped and caged to be used as sex slaves with no hope of release. Carol hasn’t told anyone about the cry for help she has been hearing. Now she knows that she is being called to help the women in this situation.
Kinsman helps Carol travel to a foreign country to meet with leaders of an organization that rescues young women. There Carol meets a young woman and is determined to change her live provided they escape the dangers around them.
I found this story lovely as well as informative. I really liked the personal way the authors shared the heart wrenching situation. The authors also share Biblical messages in very natural settings and dialogue. I was fully engaged, and this read very quickly.
Although this has a beautiful holiday cover and is listed under "Holiday", it can be read and enjoyed anytime of the year. I recommend this story to readers who might want to know about female trafficking and who enjoy Biblically based stories.
I received this through NetGalley. My Rating 4.25.
This story has several characters, many from The Invitation, and also new ones. The event that struck me the most was when Carol went to India. She heard a woman's voice calling to her and decided to go search for her. Through bravery and determination she found the woman. What does the woman do with the invitation she is given? What do the others do who had received an invitation and accepted? I couldn't stop reading until I found out, and now I can't wait for the next book in the series.
What will you do with your invitation? Turn it down, accept it and stay as you are, or accept it and do more?
