An Unexpected Page Turner!
Jeremiah Jones cannot bear to ask for help, much less ask for help from the uppity, self-righteous Quaker girl! But with so many lives in his hand -- the only one he's got left -- he's quickly running out of options.
Siri Mitchell uses double narrative voice which was a wonderful technique. The male narrator (Jeremiah) was so real and lifelike, I couldn't wait to get to the chapters in his voice. The romance developed subtly, through bitter banter and witty quips (which I loved!)without dominating or overpowering the work. Suspense, action, raw emotion and deep faith-probing will keep the pages flying!! It definitely kept me on the edge of my seat.
Thank you to Bethany Publishers for sending me a copy of this book to review. All opinions were mine, and I received no other compensation. I hope they make a miniseries out of this!
