The story of how I, Julian Carter, and my precious two-year old son, Stephen, left Atlanta Georgia and found ourselves on a white sailboat, tossed about like a cork on a raging sea off of Australia's northern tip in 1963, is harrowing. But it pales in comparison to what happened deep in the jungle where I was taken as a slave by a savage tribe unknown to the world. Some places dwell in darkness so deep that even God seems to stay away.

Ted Dekker is truly an amazing writer blessed by Almighty God. His books have touched my life in so many ways. This seems to be my third best After A.D 30, A.D 33, & The Blessed Child. Nicola Barber did an amazing job narrating this story!

As Newsweek has proclaimed, "In the world of Christian fiction, the hottest novels are those by Frank Peretti." In this remarkable work, miracles of a weeping crucifix, sightings of angels, and images of a messiah in the sky are only the beginning of something much bigger to come...

Because of what he taught her, she has gathered her own traveling kingdom of outcasts deep in the desert, wielding an authority few have seen.

Why did this book have to end😢 The cover of this book looks boring and does not do it any justice (truly, never judge a book by it's cover). This book blessed me during a rough & stressful week. It warmed my heart, made me smile, and laugh. This is going to my favourite collection...it is one of the best book I have ever read;I will make it my #3...I just love it.

P:S Listened to the book via audio. The narrator was amazing! She brought the characters to life!

Award-winning author William Kent Krueger has gained an immense fan base for his Cork O’Connor series. In Ordinary Grace, Krueger looks back to 1961 to tell the story of Frank Drum, a boy on the cusp of manhood. A typical 13-year-old with a strong, loving family, Frank is devastated when a tragedy forces him to face the unthinkable - and to take on a maturity beyond his years.

A hidden message, treachery, opposition, and a God-given success, will lead to an unlikely bounty. The scribe Sarah married Darius, and at times she feels as if she has married the Persian aristocracy too. But there is another thing she did not expect in her marriage - Sarah has grown to love her husband. She has wealth, property, honor, and power, yet securing her husband's love seems unattainable.

The prophet Nehemiah’s cousin has been catapulted into the center of the Persian court - working long hours, rubbing elbows with royalty, and becoming the queen's favorite scribe. Not bad, for a woman living in a man's world. But a devastating past has left Sarah believing that God doesn't love her and that her achievements are the measure of her worth - a measure she can never quite live up to. Darius Pasargadae is accustomed to having his way.
