When I received this book, I was anxious to dive right in.  However, the first part of book drug along as I tried to get into the story line.  Maybe it was jumping between two seemingly unconnected stories and two very different writing styles every other chapter.  Maybe it was just a busy time in my life.  Either way, it took me over a month to make it through 100 pages.

Yesterday I buckled down and was determine to finish the book.  By this point the two authors lives had converged and things were starting to get much more interesting.  As I read through the second half of the book, a beautiful and touching story emerged between a modern day slave and international art dealer  –  coerced into becoming friends at the urging of Deborah, the art dealer’s wife.

Soon Deborah, the cornerstone of this story, falls ill and everyone’s true colors begin to show — colors that painting a exquisite picture of Christian love, support, and true friendship.  Turning page after page, I found my eyes growing watery as Deborah’s friends gathered around her to pray and wrestled with the answers God was providing.

Though a little tough to get started in, this book is well worth the effort! Pick up your copy below or leave a comment for a chance to win my review copy!
