What a wonderful story this is that takes you to Brazil and other places that open your eyes to a different culture. I loved how the author told a story about missionary work and the people who devote their lives to helping those who live in villages that all but forgotten. As I began to read about Piper I started to really connect with her story. I loved that she was a pilot and and a mechanic. She is very smart and doesn't make decisions without praying about it first.
Kyle is a missionary that flies people to the villages and also helps wherever he is needed. I loved his heart for the people and his willingness to go deep into the jungles to rescue people. The food Kyle and Piper encounter when they go on a mission trip to deliver supplies was quite interesting. I don't think I could eat some of the food . They had to worry about malaria while they are there and that must be hard for people to deal with when they have little to protect them from mosquitoes. Working in the field takes a special person and this story really opened my eyes to the long hours they put in.
Piper is not sure if she should stay in the Amazons or go back home when a new opportunity arises. I loved reading about the medicines needed and all the work it takes to get it to the people living in the jungles. The author depicts a perfect picture of what missionaries go through as they work closely with the people. I can't imagine the danger, health risks and language barriers they face each day. The story is very well written and keeps readers intrigued with an adventure that finds Piper learning to trust God more . I loved the talk she had with her dad and the confession she made to him. Throughout the story you will find God's fingerprints directing characters to His plan for their lives and protecting them from harm. I can't wait to read the next book in this exciting series
I received a copy of this book from the author. The review is my own opinion.
