This is a great book!! Recommend to anyone who has a passion for missions, foster care, orphans, and people who aren't afraid to read the truth behind their lives.
"I received this book for free from Litfuse Publicity in exchange for an honest review".
I love that Beth includes pictures, facts about the places where the children live, and insight into the culture where their stories begin. She also shares something to remember at the end of each story and a space to write down thoughts as well as snippets from her own journal.
Beth shares these stories of children to let others know that our stories are all interwoven and God is our Storyweaver. She invites us to hear how God is working in people's lives and to get involved. Not only are both books in the Storyweaver series great reading for individuals, but are fantastic to read together as a family.
Throughout these different accounts, Beth writes in a way that is gets you easily enraptured in these little children's lives whether they are in Camboida or in America. I also really appreciated that Beth told an orphan's story who lived in the United States. When Christians tend to speak about mission work I feel there is such a strong emphasis on international, but not much mention of the orpahns here in America. They are just as mportant and Beth makes this known in that there American children who are in need of a God who will defend them as much as the orphans in Ethopia.
Once I finished reading Tales of the Defended Ones I started to realize just how important God stresses that we defend the cause of the orphans and widows.
Something I do want to mention that I did not realize is that this book is geared more towards pre-teens and up. I definitely plan to hold onto this novel and have my son read it one day because it is my desire that he will have a heart for missions.
Overall, a great novel that is really eye-opening and at times, heart wrenching.

About the Book: Ben and Joseph lose their mothers, but find a family looking just for them. Antonio is rescued from what seems like a hopeless situation. Caitlyn dares to trust that truth will set her free. Jorani is delivered from slavery into the arms of grace. Follow these real-life stories as they take you on a journey to foreign places and extreme struggles. Travel through their challenges and see the hand of the great Storyweaver - our Defender God shielding and defending the defenseless in the Aamazing ways only he can. These are the tales of the ones left wounded and weak-ones made whole and strong . . .
I love the way the book talks about God being a Storyweaver. "He knows exactly what is happening, to everyone, everywhere-and for every why he holds the answer." This concept has transformed my way of thinking! Beth proves that God is the Storyweaver throughout this book. She tells about stories of children around the world and how God has defended them. The book also spurs us to action calling for us to defend them too (see Proverbs 31:8-9). This book will change the way you see the world.
