Promised Land by best selling author Robert Whitlow is a Christian legal suspense fiction that is the second book in his Chosen People Series. I have not read book one (yet!) and had no trouble following this riveting novel. It is breathtaking!
Set in both the Middle East and the United States, the author has penned a well researched, organized, and extremely well written story. It is inspirational, faith filled, and full of timely life lessons.
The characters are realistic and engaging. I was immediately invested in their stories. Newlyweds Hana and Daub are a lovely couple. The supporting characters are wonderfully believable, also. Dialog flows easily and sounds realistic.
This book is a page turning delight. There is mystery, adventure, intrigue, and stolen artifacts. It had my interest piqued and I thought about this realistic book long after I finished it. One of the things I loved was not having to search for God in the story. He was up front!
I highly recommend it. Plan on spending a lot of time with this book because because it is hard to put down. I rated it 5 out of 5 stars. A copy was provided by Celebrate Lit but these are my own, honest words.
About the Book
Book: Promise Land
Author: Robert Whitlow
Genre: Christian Fiction, Suspense, Legal Drama
Release Date: January 14, 2020
With historical mysteries, religious intrigue, and political danger, Promised Land asks one momentous question: what if your calling puts you—and your family—in the crosshairs?
Despite their Israeli citizenship, Hana and Daud cannot safely return to their homeland because a dangerous terrorist ring is threatening Daud. Hana is perfectly fine remaining in the United States, working for a law firm in Atlanta, especially when she learns she’s pregnant. But Daud can’t shake the draw to return home to Israel, even if it makes him a walking target.
Hana is helping her boss plan a huge Middle East summit in Atlanta when Jakob Brodsky, her old friend and former co-litigator, asks for her help with a current case. His client is attempting to recover ancient artifacts stolen from his Jewish great-grandfather by a Soviet colonel at the end of World War II. Because the case crosses several national borders, he knows he needs Hana’s knowledge and skill to get to the bottom of what happened to these precious artifacts.
Meanwhile, Daud is called in to help a US intelligence agency extract a Ukrainian doctor from a dangerous situation in Egypt. While overseas, he can’t resist the call of Jerusalem and thus sets off a series of events that puts thousands of people in danger, including his wife and unborn child.
Bestselling author Robert Whitlow explores the meaning of family and home—and how faith forms the identity of both—in this breathtaking follow-up to Chosen People.
