The Tenth Saint was a winner. The author's rich, descriptive language painted an intriguing story carefully unfolded. Early in the book, I was thirsty for more of Gabriel's story and genuinely shocked as it was revealed. I would have never anticipated the manner in which the plot pivoted, but found it to be a fascinating juxtaposition with the rich history and traditional lifestyle of the Bedouin people portrayed throughout. I knew very little of Coptic Christianity before reading The Tenth Saint -- I love it when fiction can open a window into reality for me.
I heartily recommend the book and am eager to accompany Sarah Weston on her next adventure.
