A thriller unlike any you have ever heard. A love strong enough to bring a tremor to your bones. A sacrifice powerful enough to make heaven weep. At the close of World War II, a shell-shocked soldier, Jan Jovic, was forced to inflict a game of life and death on a peaceful Bosnian community. In a few short hours, this young man was confronted by more love - and hate - than most experience in a lifetime.
Years later, Jan has become a world-renown writer with widespread influence in the United States. His past buried deep in his memory. Until at the most inopportune times, the game witnessed by Jan haunts him...and unwittingly leads him to a beautiful but broken women caught in an underworld of crime. He now must defeat an evil rarely seen. But there is a price. One that even this war-scarred soldier can't imagine.

I finished the first, second and downloading the third! It's heart changing!
Tim Gregory is rated on my top three of best narrators!
This series needs to be a movie! Don't miss this great book!
This book helped me to remember what being "Christ Like" is all about: to have a heart for others, true forgiveness over and over again, and most important to die daily. Thank you!
I wish I had read the Heaven Trilogy before judging Ted Dekker's novels. Only because, Tosca Lee, to co author with him, did I give T. Dekker's a second chance. Writers expose the motives, beliefs and souls through words. As a transformed, Born Again, believer and follower of God's Word, I am careful about the words I choose to fill my mind and soul with. Some of Ted Dekker's writing is nearly secular... I wondered before now, if he feared sharing the TRUTH, for fear of the "world". I apologize for judging a "book" by a few "covers". Only a man, whom knows the Father intimately could write the Heavens Trilogy series. Thank you, Ted Dekker!
Actually, it is Jennifer, not Michael. I enjoy a variety of books but am drawn to romantic historical fiction with a Christian message.
Intense, exciting, and thought provoking. This is the second book in the series but takes place prior to the first book. It is the story of Helen, but really has little to do with the first book. This gripping novel brings new insight to the life of an addict. It portrays the all-consuming power a drug addiction, while demonstrating the amazing unconditional love of a spouse. Yon's unconditional love for Helen symbolizes the love Christ has for us.
avid book listener. the brain is my favorite body part. i am a Jesus follower... i miss a step quite often.
I had to stop listening for a short period of time because it got pretty intense with some of the story. but ultimately finished it off and loved every minute.
Great story and very engaging- only issue was it was less tense than it could have been because of it being book two in the series and Helen and her daughter were in book 1 any listener would know she couldn't die.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book by Ted Dekkar. It is an amazing story resembling the relationship of Jesus Christ and his perfection with a broken an unfaithful church, his bride.
If you enjoy a good thriller, or if you were looking for an example of true love, this book is for you. "In living we die. In dying we live." TD. "whoever seeks to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for my sake, shall find true life" Jesus Christ.
I chose this rating because this is the message that the church, and every other human being need to understand.
