Angela Hunt books
The Face is the second of her books I have read (the first was "She Always Wore Red". That was my first introduction to this writer and the second book only confirmed what a great author she is. She writes with the intrigue of mystery and weaves into it moral character and fiber and God. I will be seeking her out again. You won't be disappointed. My husband gave me her first book at the recommendation of the sales person at VAlley Book And Bible. Wonderful read - hard to put her books down.Was this review helpful?

I can sum up my reaction in one word: WOW!<BR/><BR/>A baby is born with such severe facial deformities that several operations must be preformed in order for the child to breathe, eat, hear, and speak. Twenty years later, her aunt, a psychologist, stumbles across the evidence of the child's existence, and begins a determined quest to find and love her niece, no matter her niece's appearance. But without an acceptable face, the young lady has never been in public; she's never learned to experience emotions.<BR/><BR/>Hunt's talented writing pulls the reader into this tender thriller with realistic characters and believable dialogue. She teaches me something new with each one of her novels. At the core of this novel, the reader considers the importance of life, love, and pain.<BR/><BR/>This is one of those hard-to-put-down books. John Grisham, move over!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I Also Recommend:
Another winner by Angela Hunt!
This story by master storyteller Angela Hunt will leave you breathless and on the edge of your seat. I read it in one sitting. Until I read this book, I had no idea what Treacher Collins Syndrome was. Thankfully, it doesn't affect many babies, but you will definitely feel for Sarah Sims and praise God for her Aunt Renee, who wants to find her and give her a chance for a normal life. I highly recommend this novel by Angela Hunt. Pass it on to your friends and family.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

superb character driven thriller
Two decades ago Sarah Sims was born without facial features. The hospital declared her dead and she was serendipitously given to the CIA. Dr. Glenda Mewton raised Sarah hidden from the world at a top-secret CIA lab. Sarah now twenty has no hopes or dreams isolated even in the isolated CIA construct where she lives. All that changes when Sarah¿s Aunt Renee learns her niece lives in concealment as a CIA computer expert. She offers Sarah a chance to meet the world starting with surgery. However, Renee cannot give Sarah the courage to take a chance on life that must come from within and her ¿mom¿ Dr. Mewton will not let her go. --- Avoiding melodrama with touches of humor, Angela Hunt provides a superb character driven thriller as the key three females seem genuine with flaws and all. The story line grips readers from the opening moments when the doctor informs Sarah¿s parents and the audience that the newborn suffers from Treacher Collins syndrome. Readers will want what is best for her though that is not easy to discern even if fans want her to step out into the world of her aunt. This is a winner as the angst is high but controlled inside a strong tale of second chances. --- Harriet KlausnerWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
