#171: Veiled Freedom - Jeanette Windle


Amy Mallory is a young and naive Christian relief worker who arrives in Afghanistan ready to take on the world and share her faith. Special Forces veteran Steve Wilson helped drive the Taliban from Kabul, but he’s since signed on with the private security firm tasked with protecting key members of the Afghani government. In Afghanistan, Jamil’s family was once wealthy and respected, but greed and enmity have destroyed Jamil’s hopes of a future; he lives day-to-day and is grateful for any small blessing. Windle builds on her own experience as a missionary in South America, and her sterling reputation for creating thrilling Christian evangelical fiction in her newest novel of international intrigue. Readers familiar with the demands and expectations of life in an Islamic country may find Amy’s behavior unrealistic, but Windle’s vivid descriptions and complex, high-stakes plot make for a fast-paced, intensely political drama that succeeds in bringing a fascinating culture to life.

My Opinion:

You hear about stories like this one all the time, especially in my end of the world. Over here, we're pretty lucky not having wars and religious laws, while in other parts of the world those things are very much real.
This story touches on a sensitive subject for most of us in the world. Humanity. This story is not for the lighthearted and you should be prepared for an emotional journey while reading. It did invoke many emotions in me.
Not going to be a story for everyone, it's too sensitive a subject matter, but I enjoyed it.


3/5


Recommend? To those with keen interest, yes.

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
