Because it deals with the deceit, hardship, deaths and moral and spiritual crisis that these immigrants endured, it keeps the reader traveling with these people. It should be one of your selections for your Christian fiction section. It will circulate!

You know you’re getting into a novel when you catch yourself starting to pray for the characters. That’s what happened when I was reading Marta’s Promise. But not only is this book about the development and growth of characters, it’s about a time in history that I wouldn’t have thought I had any interest in. But this author makes the immigration of Germans into Russia fascinating and understandable. I enjoyed every minute of reading this book and truly found I wanted to get back to reading the next part as quickly as possible. I may have been tempted to pray for these characters in their challenges—but at least I didn’t dream about them!
