I am giving this the same review as the first two novels in the series - the story continued to be interesting and I found the spiritual principles in this novel particularly challenging. I especially related to the discussion on lonliness and contentment.

WOW! This book was a lesson in spiritual life set in an interesting historical story. Like with most of Phillips writing, I had to struggle through the first few chapters as I switched gears from the things I normally read to a deeper and I wou

Good main story, and others based on true escapes from East Germany and Russia. The barbaric atheist state could hardly have been more brutal and learning the history is heart-wrenching. But we need to know. I don't think they (communists)have changed all that much in their ideology, sadly.

Sabina and her loved ones are still trapped behind the Iron Curtain, and must try to escape before it is too late. Every step is dogged with danger, and old enemies still pursue the family. But God protects and guides them, even in the most terrible situations.

Great Christian fiction with suspense, adventure, and romance set in Germany when it is split in two by the Berlin Wall. Continues to expound on the themes of growth as a Christian, God's Fatherhood, and how God draws new believers to Him. It also focuses on faithfulness and freedom, both internal and external.

This is one of those books that are a great re-read. Phillips weaves history and scripture into his stories, challenging you to grow in your faith by relating scripture through storytelling.

While at times I felt this was slow, it was worth every word! The airlines themselves, the history, the insight into human nature, it is all very good. Looking forward to number 4.
