The powerfully compelling novelization of the major motion picture by Joel and Luke Smallbone of the band for King & Country.
James Stevens was, at one time, a good man with a great life. After the tragic death of his wife and losing custody of his little girl, James is at the darkest crossroad of his life. Angry, desperate, and unable to hold down a steady job, he agrees to drive a box truck on a shady, one-time trip cross country for cash - no questions asked. When he discovers what he is delivering is actually a who, the questions in his mind begin haunting him mercilessly. James becomes an unlikely hero who must fight to save the lives of two young women and finds himself falling in love with one of them.
Can love, strength, and faith redefine his past and change the course of his future?

I liked the heart of the story, but a lot of what went on is not realistic (the rescue parts at least as well as something else at the end). I don't want to really give things away. The whole idea of how the trafficking ring worked is very true to how some function, so I liked that they did talk about that. Also, the main character had good development throughout it, that was enjoyable.
A Walk Across the Sun was similar. Both were the perspective of men trying to rescue women from the sex trafficking trade and getting involved in rings and having a little tragedy and a little happiness in the endings. They were similar, but A Walk Across the Sun was better. Both are fictional based off of some true events and work from NGOs.
Yes. I think it was pretty well done.
It was a movie first, I am pretty sure, and then the people who created the movie made the book. It already has its stars.
I like this more than the movie because it had better backstory. I listened to 75% of this book, saw the movie for an event my organization (justice-network.org) had, and then finished it. It worked out well that way too. I think some of the things cut out of the movie that were included in the book were very important.
so amazing one of the best books I've ever read I will definitely be reading this book again
Good concept but left me feeling empty. I understood that this book was based on actual events, had a Christian spin and written by Christian authors; this was way oversold and underexecuted. I read fiction to be Inspired and secondarily entertained. I regretted time that I have spent laboring through this book. I do not feel inspired. I am 3/4 of the way through and I don't know how soon or even if will find the will power to finish.
I did finish the book it had a few more (excessive) twists then a decent ending but gating there was quite the chore.
I was captivated from the very beginning and did not want to stop listening... What an awesome story of faith, hope and love....can't wait to see the movie, but had to listen to the book first!
"i loved this"
I read this in just a few days I was gripped i was hooked. i love the book because it is graphic but not too graphic you know what's going on but without all the difficult scenes being too painful to read. it's such a good message and the ending is good although predictable but I really enjoyed it!
