Congo Dawn

Congo Dawn
Jeanette Windle

Robin is on assignment with an international corporation. Their job is to secure a mine that has been under fire from some insurgents deep in the Congo rain forests. She expects uncomfortable conditions and gunfire. What she doesn't expect is to see the man who betrayed her and her brother five years ago, leaving her brother dead. But as she's beginning to learn, everything isn't as it seems.

I'll be honest, I was a bit skeptical going into this book. It isn't my typical style. I thought I'd be passing it off to my husband rather quickly. But it really surprised me. It took me a while to get into the book, but once I got past the first few chapters and made sense of all of the names and places, I really enjoyed the story. It is filled with history about the Congo and the imagery is great. The author has the talent of writing so I could "see" everything. The plot was complicated, dramatic, and suspenseful. But it had tiny elements of romance as well. Beautifully written with the message of salvation and God's love woven through out the story. If massive descriptions bother you, than this book might be a bit much. But I enjoyed most of the historical descriptions and skimmed the rest. When put all together, I enjoyed this book enough to check out the author's other books.

I received this book free of charge from Book Club Network in exchange for my honest review.
