    To have found God and still to pursue Him is a paradox of love, scorned indeed by the too-easily-satisfied religious person, but justified in happy experience by the children of the burning heart. Saint Bernard of Clairvaux stated this holy paradox in a musical four-line poem.

    Story

    In America we have a very shallow relationship with the living God, or at least I did. We accept Christ, go to a few Bible Studies, attend church and think we have it nailed. Then you read this and see how much more is available and needs to be pursued.

    I usually have no interest in this type of novel....none! Something in a review caused me to purchase. Maybe the thought I could get my $$ returned encouraged me to purchase. The book is extremely well written and the reader was excellent. If you have no interest in murder mysteries real or imagined this is the book for you. If you like this type of book you will truly enjoy this one.

    This book held your interest and is a real ‘page turner’. I listened to it almost straight through. Her characters are lovely flawed likable people. You understand their motivation and reactions and why.

    Started out positively great, then lost it. Somewhere in the middle the author lost focus.

    Had some good turns but disappointing at the finish. Some of the strong accents were hard to decipher.

    At just under five feet tall, Virginia Prodan was no match for the towering six-foot-ten-inch, gun-wielding assassin the Romanian government sent to her office to take her life. It was not the first time her life had been threatened - nor would it be the last. As a young attorney under Nicolae Ceausescu's brutal communist regime, Virginia had spent her entire life searching for the truth.

    Who can imagine a 100 pound woman standing against a corrupt government like she did. Her life was on the line every day.
