A mother’s fatal shot. A daughter’s deadly choice.
In Israel, archaeologist Grace Madison shoots her daughter’s abductor. Seconds later, a handsome shepherd drops from the sky to kill a second assassin. Their world crumbles in two blinks of an eye.
Unbeknownst to them, a fierce evil is destroying everything in its path—the unconventional path Grace and Maggie, a hydrologist, take as they struggle to right a wrong as old as time. But they soon discover time is running out. A vortex of intrigue and espionage threatens to sweep away everything and everyone they hold dear, extinguishing old flames even as it ignites new loves.
When the scale tips precariously toward disaster in the Middle East and beyond, family and friends with secrets of their own are exposed and millions of lives hang in the balance. Mother and daughter realize nothing is as it seems.
Even each other.
Because choosing what’s right is all that’s left.
When Camels Fly was a fabulous book! Had I not picked it up during the holiday season, I’m sure I’d have finished it much quicker than I did. I loved getting to know the characters and traveling across the Middle East with them. The novel was written perfectly, with enough suspense to keep you reading, but completely leaving out all of the “questionable content” that most suspense authors think have to be in their book. There were absolutely no sexual scenes, no language (not even taking God’s name in vain), and the action was hardly detailed at all (but enough to still give you the “thrill” of reading suspense). The characters were, for the most part, all Christians and portrayed it, but, they we not the “perfect Christians” that you tend to find in Historical Fiction. These characters messed up, asked God to forgive them, and then tried to do better, only to do worse, and I liked that about them. They seemed more real. I also enjoyed the simple family quarreling and the siblings picking on each other even adulthood, it lightened up the book!
I look forward to re-reading The Brothers’ Keepers now that I am familiar with the characters and their pasts and can almost promise that I will be finishing the series as they are published!
