This story started with a heart pounding scene that had me holding my breath and wondering how in the world our main character was going to get out of the situation she was in! This is an “on the run” story, which is one of my favorite tropes. I liked both Tanner and Mara and how their relationship developed so naturally. Sometimes in these intense situations, the relationship seems implausible, but this one was spot on! Somehow, even though I was reading this story while the temps were 100+ outside, I was literally cold! That’s how immersed I felt in this story and how realistic Dana Mentink made it all feel. While the faith thread was light, it was perfect for this story and I loved the following quote:
“Tanner would never understand why she had to die, but he was coming to terms with the mystery of a God who both loved and said no.”
*I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own. The faith thread was light. 5 stars!
