PROMISED LAND By Robert Whitlow, Reviewed by Rebecca Maney

"Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: May those who love you be secure."
Hana Abboud Hasan and her new husband Daud love Jerusalem with all their heart, but for their own safety, their roots are deepening in the United States, where Hana can continue practicing law in Atlanta, Georgia and Daud can build his international consulting business. Daud's past involvement in the upper echelon of Israeli intelligence has put a price on his head and when a covert operation compromises his identity, the bounty rises yet again. How can he manage to keep his lovely wife and unborn child safe, without compromising their mutual dream of returning to the promised land?

Simply put, I love these characters. Perhaps I love the characters more than the story, for there were places in this book when the scenes paled in comparison to the players on the stage. Hana and Daud are extraordinary; their walk with the Spirit is powerful and the freedom they find in the future is everlasting.

"Never will I leave you nor forsake you; the Lord your God is your strength and shield; the name of the Lord is a strong tower; no weapon formed against you shall prosper . . . "

3.5 stars *I purchased a copy of this book and am under no obligation to provide a positive review.

BackCover Blurb:
Bestselling author Robert Whitlow explores the meaning of family and home—and how faith forms the identity of both—in this breathtaking sequel to Chosen People.

Despite their Israeli citizenship, Hana and Daud cannot safely return to their homeland because a dangerous terrorist ring is threatening Daud. Hana is perfectly fine remaining in the United States, working for a law firm in Atlanta, especially when she learns she’s pregnant. But Daud can’t shake the draw to return home to Israel, even if it makes him a walking target.

Hana is helping her boss plan a huge summit in Atlanta when Jakob Brodsky, her old friend and former co-litigator, asks for her help with a case. His client is attempting to recover ancient artifacts stolen from his Jewish great-grandfather at the end of World War II. Because the case crosses several national borders, he needs Hana’s knowledge and skill to get to the bottom of what happened to these precious artifacts.
Meanwhile, Daud is called in to help a US intelligence agency extract a Ukrainian doctor from a dangerous situation in Egypt. While overseas, he can’t resist the call of Jerusalem and thus sets off a series of events that puts thousands of people in danger, including his wife and unborn child.
With historical mysteries, religious intrigue, and political danger, Promised Land asks one momentous question: What if your calling puts you—and your family—in the crosshairs?
