Publisher's Summary

Best-selling author Robert Whitlow explores the meaning of family and home - and how faith forms the identity of both - in this breathtaking sequel to Chosen People.

Despite their Israeli citizenship, Hana and Daud cannot safely return to their homeland because a dangerous terrorist ring is threatening Daud. Hana is perfectly fine remaining in the United States, working for a law firm in Atlanta, especially when she learns she’s pregnant. But Daud can’t shake the draw to return home to Israel, even if it makes him a walking target.

Hana is helping her boss plan a huge summit in Atlanta when Jakob Brodsky, her old friend and former co-litigator, asks for her help with a case. His client is attempting to recover ancient artifacts stolen from his Jewish great-grandfather at the end of World War II. Because the case crosses several national borders, he needs Hana’s knowledge and skill to get to the bottom of what happened to these precious artifacts.

Meanwhile, Daud is called in to help a US intelligence agency extract a Ukrainian doctor from a dangerous situation in Egypt. While overseas, he can’t resist the call of Jerusalem and thus sets off a series of events that puts thousands of people in danger, including his wife and unborn child.

With historical mysteries, religious intrigue, and political danger, Promised Land asks one momentous question: What if your calling puts you - and your family - in the crosshairs? 

Praise for Promised Land:

"Promised Land is a book about coming home. Of becoming settled in your spirit and your relationships. With layers of intensity, thanks to international intrigue, moments of legal wrangling, and pages of sweet relationships, this book is rich and complex. A wonderful read." (Cara Putman, author of Flight Risk

Second and final audiobook in the Chosen People series.

Full-length, Christian fiction novel.

Great follow-up to book one.

Not as much action as I was expecting, but an excellent story to listen to. The author spent a lot of time discussing recipes, maybe his next book will be a cookbook. More in-depth discussion about the main characters. The narration was much better than in book 1.

disappointing

I finished the first book in the series which left me anxious for the continuation in book two, but it was disappointing for two reasons. 1. The narrator used annoying voices for the characters. 2. The second book was more love story than action adventure with way too much detail about house buying, pregnancy etc.

Love this story

I really like the message and history in the 2 books in this series. Whitlow does a great job in telling a compelling story, developing interesting characters, and bringing the reality of God in our daily lives.

The narrator has a pleasant voice and did the large variety of accents well. I thought Jacob's accent was too strong for someone from Long Island. Some of the antagonists' voices need some work, but the protagonists' were great!

I love this book

This is a great story. It's very well written, with balanced action and romance in marriage. I love how the moments spent with the Lord showed His love and power. The reader did an awesome job switching from one accent to another and using proper tones as she read.

A thoughtful story - bad narration

This story starts much slower than its predecessor but is no less interesting. The narrator tries too hard with accents and the result is a bit painful for 10 hours.

Love the story

Only "voice" I didn't like was the New York accent lawyer but that's just me. It was different from 1st in the series and takes getting used to.

Another great Whitlow book!

I enjoyed this book as well as the first in the series, Chosen People. My only disappointment was having someone different read it.

Another good Ludlow book

Loved it not only for the story, but for all the cultural description of foods & customs. Wonderful second book in this series. Will there be another?
