A Compelling Sequel
Paul Farid is a wanted man. His family considers him a traitor and has put a price on his head. Can he ever shake loose from his Muslim heritage? Maybe he should move to the United States where he and his wife Larsen could live in relative peace and security. His desire to keep his family safe only intensifies when he discovers Larsen is pregnant and they adopt an orphan newborn whose young mother has been killed during rising tensions between the North and South Sudan. The fragile peace treaty seems almost a farce. Death tolls from in-fighting continue to rise. Now Paul has been contacted by his brother. Does he really have an interest in Christianity or has he set a trap for Paul? Bad enough his life is at risk, but he must now think of his family¿s safety. He struggles with the reality he is not strong enough to guarantee their safety. Can he learn to surrender this protection to God? Larson wants to be a good wife. Their plans not to have a child are disrupted when she discovers she is pregnant. Then she adopts a motherless child. Paul worries over his ability to keep his family safe in the still volatile region. Now that she is a mother and expecting another child, is she wrong to bring up children in this unstable situation? She sees the strain Paul¿s worries cause him. Should she give up her commitment to practice medicine in this hostile and primitive region? What does God require of them? Ben Alier struggles with Larson¿s rejection and marriage to his friend, Paul Farid. When he learns of his life-threatening illness, Ben confronts his past. He has an out of wedlock son. He wonders if he should marry the boy¿s mother and set his life in order before he dies. He becomes entwined with Paul and Larsen yet again as he helps Paul work through the on-going threats against his family and Paul helps Ben comes to terms with his physical condition. In this compelling sequel to When the Lion Roars, Diann Mills has captivated us once again in the lives of these three strong-willed individuals. This is more than a treatment of man¿s inhumanity to man in a land that is still suffering from the aftermath of a long and brutal civil war. This is a story of a young couple struggling to define their place in the land. It is a story of healing as well as a story of a faith that holds in the face of danger and trial.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
