Love, Faith and Devotion Conquers Evil I found this story so powerful and moving.  The faith in God that was shown by so many of the characters no matter what their circumstances.  The impact of what had happened to Rory Chance in the 8 years since meeting Hannah Baker.  How Hannah held a special love for Rory since she was 17 years old and still loved him.  As a romance writer, all her heroes revolved around Rory.   She gets a piece of mail that was 2 years behind in being delivered and drops everything to leave America and go to her best girl friend in South Africa.  Within a few hours of arriving at the home of her friend, she and the friend and children of the home are kidnapped.  This story continues with her rescue but her refusal to leave her friend Melanie and the children behind.  We learn so much of the blood diamonds and mining by slaves kidnapped into service. Of how woman are kidnapped and sold into sex slavery.  This story covers a deep, but sad fact of human nature. I feel that Felicia Rogers did a fantastic job of telling a painful story of human trafficking, kidnapping into slavery and more of the blood diamonds of South Africa. But on a happier note, this story also is about how true love between two people can survive over time.

A great read! Real, likable, and relatable characters. The book starts with a teenage Hannah who is a day dreamer and one day while running literally runs into Rory a summer love that ended too soon but left a lasting impact on them both. Now years later Hannah (now a published writer) travels to Africa to visit an old friend at a very unfortunate time. Rory a decorated war hero is in Africa trying to pay pennance for his past sins. Despite all odds their paths cross but will they survive to see if anything can bloom out of their short summer love? I loved this story it was filled with drama, suspense, and love...but there were 2 things that stood out...the 1st was the way Felicia incorporated God into real life it really is more about the way you act not just what you say the 2nd was the bringing to light the real danger of human trafficing that goes on in this world still today that as Americans we are pretty blinded to.
