The author is obviously very familiar with the culture, geography, langauage, factions, and customs of this part of the world. She interspersed a great deal of information easily throughout the storyline; for example, when Theresa was stung by a sandfly, the reader learns about this insect, the boil it can produce, and the remedies available for treatment, all without interfering with the storyline. The author provides this education unobstrusively about many subjects throughout the book.
On a personal note, I took great pleasure in the portrayal of the American military, and their role in interrupting an evil government and the strangle-hold they had over their people. I felt gratified that our leaders invaded Iraq in 2002, WMD or not. After reading this book, I believe that doing so saved many more lives than it took, and improved the quality of life for millions. And, it is nice to see our military portrayed as the heroes that they are.
So, five stars for a compelling read with wonderful twists, a powerfully transformative theme, and a satisfying ending.
Teresa Fuller, her cameraman, Peter Cranston, had planned to slip across the Boarder of Iraq long enough to get the details of a story she had been following. As soon as she had what she needed, they would quietly slip out of Iraq without being seen. That didn't happen and what they encountered was , , , well, I'll not go into anymore detail because You have to read the book to get the rest of the story. I promise you that you won't be disappointed.
This is her first offering I'll definitely be back for future ones.
