Nicole Berman is determined to find there the first concrete evidence of the biblical patriarch Abraham while leading her first archeological dig in Jordan. During the excavation, Berman discovers a 4,000-year-old complex that includes evidence she believes proves her theory. But a devastating cave-in nearly kills her and she awakens in a Saudi clinic, haunted by visions of what she may have seen - evidence of Abraham and his two sons, the half-brothers Isaac and Ishmael. One discovery leads to another, and Nicole sets off across the region to connect pieces of an ancient puzzle.

As noted by other reviewers, this book just ends very abruptly, there is no appropriate wrap-up or even an obvious cliff-hanger hand off to a future book. Both threads just end without any connection and no indication of a later conclusion. My ratings are based on the unfounded assumption that this is the first of a series. If this is the whole story then I would not recommend it.

Love Does shares powerful stories coupled with eye-opening truths and empowers anyone who longs for a better world and a richer faith. You don’t need another Christian message or a self-help book. You need to have your paradigms about the world shifted into truth. That’s exactly what you get in Love Does. Have you ever noticed that the real change in your life - the growth that sticks and becomes a part of you - never happens with a program or the sheer grit of your best efforts?
