This afternoon while checking to see if I’d purchased a recently published Charles Martin book (one of my favorite authors) I stumbled across another book and decided I must read it. I’m drawn to fresh story ideas that promise interest and intrigue. This is not one of the many run-of-the-mill stories we often see.
It will also an introduction to a new-to-me author. I’m excited to read this next.
It’s at a bargain price too.
Promised Land (A Chosen People Novel Book 2)
Bestselling author Robert Whitlow explores the meaning of family and home—and how faith forms the identity of both—in this breathtaking sequel to Chosen People.
Despite their Israeli citizenship, Hana and Daud cannot safely return to their homeland because a dangerous terrorist ring is threatening Daud. Hana is perfectly fine remaining in the United States, working for a law firm in Atlanta, especially when she learns she’s pregnant. But Daud can’t shake the draw to return home to Israel, even if it makes him a walking target.
Hana is helping her boss plan a huge summit in Atlanta when Jakob Brodsky, her old friend and former co-litigator, asks for her help with a case. His client is attempting to recover ancient artifacts stolen from his Jewish great-grandfather at the end of World War II. Because the case crosses several national borders, he needs Hana’s knowledge and skill to get to the bottom of what happened to these precious artifacts.
Meanwhile, Daud is called in to help a US intelligence agency extract a Ukrainian doctor from a dangerous situation in Egypt. While overseas, he can’t resist the call of Jerusalem and thus sets off a series of events that puts thousands of people in danger, including his wife and unborn child.
My current read is not as deep and thrilling as this new book will be but it does have a fresh slant on an old story, so far anyway. I’m a third of the way through and enjoying the experience. It’s still a bargain price.
