This book is a very difficult read because of the sensitive subject, but one that will stay with you long after the last page is read. Many of us search for answers to what God's plan is for us. We sometimes lose hope when our life seems to be out of control. When Ryan goes on a mission trip to help out at a place called Jubilee House he will discover what God has planned for him.
The Jubilee House is a place that very young girls stay after being rescued from sex slavery. Ryan is very emotional as the days go by and he hears of heartbreaking stories about harrowing rescued and senseless violence against the young girls. The book is a journey that one man takes that will is filled with heartache, anger, sorrow and finally a new relationship with God. The subject in the book is one that happens everyday for girls and women in these countries where the police turn their back and let evil prevail. The horror and torture these girls go through is hard to read and I stopped several times to wipe tears away from my eyes. Even though this book is written as a fiction book, it is definitely something that continues to go on daily for many innocent girls. I cannot fathom a child as young as seven living the life this book describes.
I am thankful that the author wrote a book with such passion for this subject as it will hopefully remind each of us what evil is out there . The rescues that are done are dangerous but the rewards are far greater. In the story Ryan asks a question that many of us have wondered about and I loved the answer that was given with such clarity by the author. "Why do bad things happen to good people? So they can learn, overcome, and then help countless others survive those same bad things."
I received a copy of this book from The BookClub Network for an honest review.
