When Camels Fly

Title:  When Camels Fly
Author:  NLB Horton
Pages:  350
Year:  2014
Publisher:  NLB Horton
Using her research, travels and imagination, the author shares a riveting tale set in the Holy Land with danger leering constantly.  When requested by either an author, publisher or via some other avenue to review a book, I check on Amazon to see what other novels have been published by the author.  Soon, I will dig into book two written by this author titled, The Brother’s Keeper, which continues the story of the travels of the Madison family.
The mother, whose name is Grace, is an archeologist and her daughter Madison is a hydrologist.  Mark stays at the ranch to do the chores while his wife Grace occasionally travels.  Mark is a retired CIA agent and their son, Jeff, works as a newscaster for the BBC.  When mother and daughter are kidnapped, Mark and Jeff travel to the Middle East attempting to locate and rescue them.  But there are other parties who desire the demise of the whole family, and another set of characters who will do all within their power to protect these precious people from harm and even death.
There is so much more going on in the book than I have space here to share with you.  However, suffice it to say that this story packs a whole lot of action, danger, adventure, centered on the Madison family in this author’s debut novel.  The amount of intrigue, discovery, travel and more that happens in a time frame of five days is simple astounding!  When the family realizes they don’t know as much about what each other does or did for a living, well that just makes discovery all the more fun!
If you are a reader and know others who love to read fiction like I have described here, I hope you will consider placing a copy under the tree for a gift!  (The recipient will thank you!)
