In Mexico, Hurricane Bertha flattened tobacco crops and coffee bean fields and demolished entire villages. Then suddenly she turned northward-a surprising act that had not been foreseen by meteorologists. After twelve hours, the winds that had reached 180 miles per hour would slow, and the storm would die. But before that, Bertha would terrorize the unsuspecting residents of a South Texas hospital and the bank robbers holding them hostage.

It is a toss-up whether nurse Sidney Shelton is more afraid of the thugs or the hurricane. For hours the captors threaten and brutalize the hostages. Sidney wonders whether they will be dead or alive when the robbers leave. What can she do to protect her six-year-old son and friends from harm? God sends her unexpected help from a Mexican cop and a soldier with post-traumatic stress disorder.

This novel is recommended for book clubs that enjoy a good thriller and individuals who seek theological reflection. Discussion questions are at the end of the novel.

This is an excellent read. It kept me on the edge of my seat, a very thought provoking story. The message of hope for all is refreshing for a thriller of this sort. I even re-read it twice, each time finding new things to inspire courage and hope. I definitely recommend it.

I found myself reading faster and faster wanting to know what would happen next. Compelling story. The questions at the end are excellent for group discussion or even for a discussion with yourself. Helps a person focus on what they believe in regard to God.

Compelling combination of hoodlums, hospital, hurricane, hostages, and HOPE! A story that could be from today's headliness told from a Christian perspective. Highly recommended!
