Just as in real life, one life connects to others in this thriller by Jerry Jenkins. The father of the man who would become Abraham; a young Jewish man maturing under fire in Vietnam; and his daughter, years later, determined to follow in her father’s archeological footsteps. Murder, Biblical history, love, and loss come together in a riveting tale.
At first, I thought of the triple story in this book as a braid, each piece even and tied together in the end, but it didn’t seem to fit. Then I realized what I was observing was a trio of instruments playing together, harmonizing and creating a song that sticks in your memory. They didn’t just come together in the end, the separate pieces worked to enhance the story all the way through. I was so caught up in it I had a hard return to reality when I got to the end. Excellent story by an excellent composer of words!
