Overview

Eyan Jericho has spent most of his adult life living for God and serving his country as one of the few and the proud Marines. Just before getting the orders for his third assignment in Iraq, his once solid marriage suddenly takes a turn for the worse, prompting his wife, Jan, and their twelve-year-old daughter, Kyla, to leave their family home on the Marine base in Twenty-Nine Palms, CA to permanently relocate to Atlanta. They will live with Jan's mother in an infamous community called Shelton Heights.

Eyan loves the Lord, but when his calamity increases, will his faith decrease? As his latest tour of duty nears an end, he decides that it is the perfect time to say goodbye to military life and focus on reclaiming the family he loves so dearly.

His plans are abruptly interrupted when Eyan finds himself a captured prisoner of war. As one by one the soldiers in his group are put to death at the hands of the enemy, survival doesn't seem likely for Master Sergeant Eyan Kyle Jericho, and he finds himself in the battle of a lifetime.

How his life spiraled to this point, Eyan can't comprehend. All he knows it that all was well until that day in September when his wife decided to pay her mother a visit. Are all of the peculiar misfortunes that led to the breakup of his family and his capture in Iraq just happenstance, or has the legend of Shelton Heights caught up with yet another unsuspecting family?

    Battle of Jericho

    When I read this book, I couldn't put it down until I was finished. Ms. Norman-Bellamy is a beautiful writer and expressed from a real human point of view that people go through this type of situation on a daily basis. There is no need to use profanity to express what you're thiking in order for the reader to understand what's going on and get an idea of the story overall. I was in suspense until the very end. Also, even as a Christian, we are humans just like the next person and go through our own set of problems but its the manner in which we handle our situations that sets us apart from everyone else.

    Do you have any regrets????T

    Kendra Norman-Bellamy's urban christian novel 'Battle Of Jericho' was a great read. She showed you how a copule's differences can land them in tight situations. You saw how that thin line of love and hate was crossed. You also saw the betrayl of a friend. Kendra raised a very good thought provoking question in her story of Jericho. 'If you were to die today, will you have regrets of not telling a loved one how much you loved them?' The ups and downs of the Jericho's realtionship showed you the importance of listening, talking, understanding and most importantly forgiving. Condsidering i'm not much of a crier, part of the story almost bought tears to my eyes. Thanks for sharing Kendra! We enjoyed your visit as well!!!!

    Peter Jericho had such a love for Christ and his wife that it made me feel like I was living the story. The story has so many twists and turns that you have to continue reading, you can't put it down you have to keep reading to see what the next turn is going to be. It is that exciting!
