Coutu has a real gift for creating a story world. She took me from Ellen's beautiful world of privilege to the garbage heaps in Guatemala. And the storyline was great. There were secrets, intrigue, corporate espionage and corruption. But the moral thread throughout was the most compelling, reminding us that we are in our present circumstances (no matter how pleasant or horrible) for a reason. And that God uses us to help others, no matter if we are "broken."
Loved this book!
I enjoyed this moderately-paced story of intrigue and deception in the world of international business and commerce. Much of the story takes places in Minneapolis, where readers are pulled into this city of sparking lakes and cosmopolitan amenities. The descriptions are very realistic and I felt like I was right there in the story. Similarly, in my mind, I also walked through the garbage dumps of Guatemala—a horrific, contrasting scenario.
I love the spiritual theme that runs through the story, somewhat like a stream rushing over a rocky streambed—it tumbles down the mountain before reaching placid waters. For Ellen, in particular, her journey was not smooth. For others the road to faith came easier. This story makes it very clear that God’s grace is available to all who will receive it.
This novel should appeal to those who enjoy contemporary fiction, and to readers who enjoy modern retellings of a Biblical story. Highly recommended.
