The glimmering Huguenot cross she innocently wears leads her deep into the shadows.
When Gabriella Madison arrives in France in 1961 to continue her university studies, she doesn’t anticipate being drawn into the secretive world behind the Algerian war for independence from France. The further she delves into the war efforts, the more her faith is challenged.
The people who surround her bring a whirlwind of transforming forces—a wise nun involved in the smuggling, a little girl carrying secret information, and a man with unknown loyalties who captures her heart. When she discovers a long hidden secret from her past, it all leads to questions about trust, faith in action, and the power of forgiveness to move beyond the pain of the past.
Here is what I thought...
This book is a very emotional read. It is very detailed and eloquent. There are some scenes that were very hard to read because of the subject matter. This book was hard to get into at first because it jumps around between a few different characters and I was a little confused at first. This isn't a lite read but it was a good book. I liked the character of Gabriella an the character of the little girl. This book is a read that may take you a while but was good overall. I think if you like Francine rivers you would probably enjoy this. I received this book from the TBCN for free. A positive review was not required. All opinions are my own.
