In The Deliverer, Mara has to make some major choices: 1) whether to trust her feelings for Jonathan, despite the fact that she fears men in general; 2) will she risk returning to Mexico to find her family, the very ones who sold her into slavery when she was just a child; 3) will she receive God's forgiveness and then offer that forgiveness to those who have so viciously hurt and betrayed her? Lawan is also deeply involved in this final book, as it opens with her winging her way from Thailand and all that is familiar to come and live with the family who adopted her younger sister, Anna. Though still a child herself, Lawan has survived nearly three years in a brothel and feels much shame as a result. Will she be able to bond with her new family and allow God to heal the losses and pain she has sustained in recent years? Jonathan too has much to deal with, primarily his feelings for Mara. Can he, a Bible college student, establish a deep and meaningful relationship with a young woman who has spent the majority of her life as a sex slave? At New Hope Digital (newhopedigital.com) you can find study questions for each book in this series and an "ideas and resources" list to help educate readers and enable them to apply what they've learned and become actively involved in this massive and ongoing human tragedy--Trafficking in Persons.

What an amazing book! Very rarely do I have the opportunity to read books that affect me so emotionally and spiritually, but this is indeed one of them. Tears don't come easily to me when it comes to books, but this was a book that brought the tears on many occasions, and I was reminded of the way God works His plans at all times in all situations.
The prayers in this book touched my heart again and again. Although they were being voiced by fictional characters, they were so real. To see characters who prayed to and relied on God for everything was an encouragement to me. And to have God speak back to them was a good reminder to me that prayer is a 2-way conversation.
This is the second book in a row that I have read about human sex trafficking, and I was horrified to discover that this is still something that is so prevalent in our world--even our country. I can't imagine how often this happens, and we know nothing about it.
I was pleased to see that even though the book was basically a "happy ending" book (no spoilers here), it was realistic. And is showed God's faithfulness in every situation, even when it makes no sense to us. This is a quick, inspiring read that I would highly recommend to anyone!
I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.
