So many times I've been disappointed in the quality of "Christian Fiction." Not so with "SOUTH PACIFIC JOURNAL." The characters are believable and very interesting. Descriptive passages place the reader on location in the South Pacific. I've never read such compelling "flash-back" passages. Even though the narrative left many unanswered questions about the characters (What happened to the lieutenant? How did Sarah try to contact her family? When and how did she return to Manila?) I feel as if I really know the characters personally. I hope David & Nancy French write a sequel.
My gratitude goes to the authors for such excellent writing and to the publisher for printing this book.
You must read this book. It is a heart-warming and thought-provoking juggernaut. The writing is excellent. It reminded me of two books -- one about Vietnam that I read as part of a speech and writing course at Harvard ("The Things They Carried") and the other, a popular, best seller ("The Testament"). In my opinion, South Pacific Journal is a better piece of literature than "The Testament" and has a more powerful message than "The Things They Carried".
If you do not want your life changed, don't read this book because you cannot read it and stay the same. I read it all in one day and must admit that toward the end, I was brought to tears. I'm still thinking about the message. The story actually increased my own confidence and faith. I cannot wait to send copies to my friends.
