Title: Stranger Things
Author: Erin Healy
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Erin Healy is one of the most fascinating novelists whose books I read and keep a watch out for her latest publications because she writes with such depth of heart. In this book, she crafts a tale about human sex trafficking within the United States. While the topic may cause a pause in some, let me share this with you; there is hope woven in the story. The hope written is not a fairy tale one or without hardships. Some of the characters even in the harsh environment along with the cruel treatment they receive find the reality of hope.
When a brother’s sister is abducted, he forsakes his own dreams and pursuits to enter into a dark world that hates the light. Carrying only his sister’s picture and due to a lack of response from professionals, Chris begins a journey to find his sister. Along the way he begins to understand that he can save more ensnared in the dark than just his sister. With two college buddies, they start a not for profit organization. I won’t reveal the name of it, but will share with you it came from Chris seeing what grows only in California after a wildfire. Got your attention don’t I?
The story spreads from there to a world with mystery. As the tale progresses, the twists and turns of the story will keep the audience turning pages for hours. When the bullies subjecting women to slavery are confronted, some women begin to fight back with the hope they will be rescued. The once enslaved become redeemed, renewed and encouraged to love again with the strength that comes from believing in one who gave his life so others could live.
Erin’s recent novel was very enjoyable and thrilling to read. She has another book set to come out in the Fall of 2014 called Motherless. Personally, I cannot wait to read it and share with you all so that you might read it and share the story with people you meet, family or friends. The truth that one life can change many is very persistent throughout the story. It serves as a reminder to all of us that we too can be conduits that God’s love flows through to reach others. His love that draws them to Himself and redeems what sin has stolen and evil longs to keep others from seeing…hope.
