This is an impressive novel, with a riveting story line, and a courageous main character named Susannah Carlson. Susannah has premonitions of child abductions, and takes great risks to protect children from horrific crimes. She ultimately must decide whether to reveal these premonitions to loved ones, and whether to trust that love will prevail. Part of the story takes place in Africa, which Ms. Pulliam beautifully describes. I highly recommend this novel.

And Then Came a Lion by Cecilia Marie Pulliam is a great read. It's one of those books I was sorry to finish.
There were a few editing issues, nevertheless not enough to spoil my enjoyment of a really exciting story.
Susannah, the plucky heroin has a unique gift. She has dreams and visions of children being abducted by vile people. Because she sees the event ahead of time, she is able to rescue the children, all the while putting herself in grave danger.
This book tackles a subject that is very em

So many thoughts and ideas to mull over in this novel, but the author made it a point to keep one issue in the minds of the readers: child abuse and abduction is real and occurs far more often than we care to think.

Also tackled is the issue of forgiveness. Forgiving people for the daily hurts they cause is one thing. Forgiving a monster for a heinous crime committed against you is another. There is no way to achieve that kind of forgiveness with one's own ability. We have to draw it from God's
