American Midnight by Brandon Barr, Mike Lynch

Tania Peters had it all--a loving, supportive family, and a future that seemed all but set. But when her mother is killed in a plane crash in the jungles of Ecuador, her world comes crashing down around her. As a result, she adopts a live for today philosophy. Throwing herself into the arms of her boyfriend, Tania seeks all that society says will bring satisfaction and meaning into her life. But she soon realizes this is a lie, and begins to fall under the spell of the Unity Party, a political movement that has swept Robert Allen into the White House. But such allegiances come at a price: complete and unquestioned loyalty to the Party. Despite all the "good" the Party does for society, Tania's devotion to the movement is pushed to the limit when her own father, the Pastor of the Calvary Community Church, is arrested and jailed when he refuses to compromise his religious beliefs. Forced to decide between her past and her future, Tania rediscovers the faith she has long since abandoned, even though such a decision could cost everything she holds dear, including her life.

I thought the story was very thought provoking about how our religious Freedoms could be taken away by the government very easily and quickly. Definitely worth the read.

I blew off my plans for the day because I did not want to put the book down, reading the last third in one sitting. I loved the author's use of flashbacks for the plane crash. The last one had me in tears. If you like the Left Behind series, you will like this book.
