A Dark Subject and Difficult Read

This book was extremely hard to read because of the subject matter. Even though the author knew her subject, I did not like it at all and skipped parts here and there. Not a subject I would ever care to expose myself to again in a novel.

This a Christian novel involving Ana from Brownsville, Texas. Ana has moved to St. Louis to work as a newspaper writer and to escape bad childhood memories. She meets Sam, an ex-Marine Re-con soldier, with demons of his own. Sam is trying to establish Haven, a safe place for inner-city poor kids. Together they manage to uncover a huge child slavery ring. Good story with excellent thoughts about God as our father and protector.
I thought the book was well-written. It's always difficult to rate a book that I don't particularly care for in the sense of it being enjoyable. The subject matter of this book isn't a happy topic, and I try to avoid books dealing with things like this. Sometimes real life isn't necessarily edifying.

Could not get into this book no matter how hard I tried! I just didn't care for the author's writing style. I found it a little confusing. Finally gave up after the first 50 pages. It shouldn't take me 2 weeks to "get into" a book!

This Christian book carefully handles a difficult topic. Although it is a bit grim, it is well done and educational.

Author Catherine Palmer has done a good job of tackling a difficult subject and showing there is hope even in some very dark places where evil has a stronghold.
