When I first started to expand my reading taste to authors previously unknown it was about the time that Hunt published this book. I read the summary of the book and dismissed it as too science fiction like for me. I had yet to experience all that I currently love about Hunt's now trademark "expect the unexpected" and her ability to push the limits to tell beautiful truths about God.
After having read the book I can't believe that I ever passed it up. Hunt did it again. I definitely did not expect the twist at the end but I could see a bit of foreshadowing, and almost expected the twist and held my breath for it to occur. Of course, I am a forgetful person so I forgot that little inkling until after I read the outcome of the twist. (Of course I can't say what the twist is, otherwise I would give away the plot of an excellent book that I strongly recommend).
Hunt tells a breathtakingly beautiful story of salvation for both of the main characters who struggle with issues common to many Christians or I should say people that grow up speaking the Christian lingo in the typical American Christian world. Well, the main character grew up in America but the title character did not. (I'm terrible... I've already forgotten his actual name as well).
As mentioned before I definitely recommend this book, especially to the adventurous and those lovers of history.
