It's hard to beat Susan May Warren for heartwrenching romance and adventure. Sands of Time is no exception. The main character's situations and conflicting goals grab you from the first and never let go, as does their undeniable love for each other and God. I thoroughly enjoyed the play and counterplay between Sarai and Roman. Each of their wrestling matches with God is completely convincing, a feat that's not easy to pull off consistently. Warren makes her characters suffer deliciously through realizations and transformations that challenge readers right where they live.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Sarai is a missionary doctor. Roman is an FSB agent. 13 years ago they used to be in love. Now Roman is trying to get Sarai out of the country for her safety. Sarai doesn't want to leave because there is a illness that she cannot figure what the source is from. The two have to learn to put up with each other in order to get themselves into safety and away from the dangers that the government has put out against them. This book was just jammed pack with suspense. One thing keeps happening after another. You never get bored. I really liked both characters. Actually I liked Sarai a lot better than Gracie from 'In Sheep's Clothing.' Sarai was a lot stronger and able to handles things on her own. When Roman fell into the lake, I actually felt cold. And the fact that he kept his jeans on afterwards....blehhhh. I think there's a description of Roman written somewhere in the book, but I kept picturing him as James Bond a la Pierce Bronsnan. The scene at the chemical plant would have been perfect in a Bond movie. To me the most dramatic part was when Sarai screams that she hates Roman, and there's nothing Roman could do about it. It seemed so tragic. I really enjoyed this book. We are currently studying about the Cold War and Russia in one of my classes. So this book helped to see what Russian culture is like and how an American would fit into the country. I'd recommend this book for anyone who likes romantic suspense or would enjoy learning about Russian culture.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This is a fast moving, action packed, soul searching adventure. Susan has delivered another wonderful work filled with crooked politicians, hired thugs, honest & loyal secret police agents and missionaries.Roman knows where God wants him, Sarai has other ideas. Can they two resolve their differences before time runs out, before they both are killed? You won't want to put this book down. This is a must readWas this review helpful?

Susan has done it again! I totally enjoyed this action packed adventure from the very beginning. Roman is a man after God's own heart. He wants to do what God wants him to do. He finds out Sarai is in trouble and because of who he is - he has to help but how? You see, Sarai and Roman used to have a relationship about 13 years ago until Sarai walked out. So does he help or not? Why not read and find out.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
