What a joy it is to read a book that have characters which come alive and feel like your friends. I loved Rebecca because she was honest, sweet and had a giving heart. Her past has made her feel like no one would ever want her. I admired her decision to become a missionary nurse. The author gives vivid descriptions of the jungle and the dangers that lurk there. I can’t image how hard it was for Rebecca to leave everything behind and work in a foreign place. I loved reading about the meals she had and found them to be quite interesting. I appreciate all the research the author did to make the story feel like I was there with Rebecca.
Dr. Ed was a wonderful character. He has compassion for the patients he treats and loves his two girls with all that he has. I loved reading about his interaction with his daughters. He has had a hard time being on his own raising them, but he never once felt like they were a burden. His devotion to God has helped him overcome obstacles . Sharing his faith with Rebecca may help her tear down walks she has built around her heart.
I loved the message in the book about forgiveness. One of the hardest things Rebecca has to understand is that she needs to forgive herself for her past. It seems easy to accept that God forgives us, but we have a hard time forgiving ourselves. The story is a wonderful read and the author captures how much God loves us in a story that stirs emotions and shows us unconditional love.
I received a copy of this book from TBCN and the author. The review is my own opinion.
