CHOSEN PEOPLE by Robert Lidlow, Reviewed by Rebecca Maney

"If the Lord wakes you in the night, do you know what to say?"

Hana Abboud has always had an instinctive urge to pray, especially in the middle of the night. Now a Christian Arab Israeli attorney involved in an international terrorism lawsuit from her office in Atlanta, Hana finds herself seeking the Lord's guidance at every turn; an innocent life was lost, a husband grieves the death of his wife, and a precious little girl is motherless; justice needs to be served. 

Teaming with Jewish lawyer Jacob Brodsky, who represents the plaintiff, Hana returns to the land of her heart. What seemed like an impossible task becomes easier with the help of a skilled Arab investigator named Daud Hassan, but "all faith is tested" . . . .. and Hana will be called upon to "meditate on the promises of the Almighty" during circumstances that will break her heart.

"Speak, Lord, for your servant is listening."

It's obvious that the writer was passionate about this story; what a brilliant legal thriller . . . and how refreshing to see the work of the Holy Spirit showcased through-out the pages of a book as beautifully written as this one.

Bestselling author Robert Whitlow returns with an international legal drama that speaks to critical issues of our day.

“Compelling, realistic, and inspiring.” —Randy Singer, bestselling author of Rule of Law

“You are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation . . .”

During a terrorist attack near the Western Wall in Jerusalem, a courageous mother sacrifices her life to save her four-year-old daughter, leaving behind a grieving husband and a motherless child.

Hana Abboud, a Christian Arab Israeli lawyer trained at Hebrew University, typically uses her language skills to represent international clients for an Atlanta law firm. When her boss is contacted by Jakob Brodsky, a young Jewish lawyer pursuing a lawsuit on behalf of the woman’s family under the US Anti-Terrorism laws, he calls on Hana’s expertise to take point on the case. After careful prayer, she joins forces with Jakob, and they quickly realize the need to bring in a third member for their team, an Arab investigator named Daud Hasan, based in Israel.

To unravel the case, this team of investigators travels from the streets of Atlanta to the alleys of Jerusalem, a world where hidden motives thrive, the risk of death is real, and the search for truth has many faces. What they uncover will forever change their understanding of justice, heritage, and what it means to be chosen for a greater purpose.
