What a prayer. A very brave prayer. To be able to thank God amid all circumstances. This is something I often wish I was brave enough to do every day. Even though I often miss the mark, it is still an encouragement to me to read of others that step up to that kind of bravery, even if they are a fictional character in a book. Today my inspiration of brave faith comes in the form of an exceptional fiction character named Dr. Cynthia Myers.
I recently received an ARC of Hallee Bridgeman’s newest upcoming release under Revell Publishing titled Honor Bound. I would like to thank the publisher and the author for the gifted copy, for after reading the prequel, Love in Any Language, I was excited for the opportunity to review the next installment of this series. I anticipated another well-crafted story from this author.
I was not disappointed.
I first must mention it was a privilege to read something so honorably written. Her experience with military life has perfected her perspective on the ups and downs of a world many do not understand or cherish. She salutes the soldiers and their families with her respectful words and enlightens readers to the struggles and joys of military life through the experiences of Dr. Cynthia Myers and United States Army Captain Rick Norton.
In a brilliantly written story that abounds with unexpected twists and turns, she captures the ongoing battle for good to triumph over evil. I have been a long-time fan of spy and action books and films, but I have always struggled with the language and graphic scenes produced for the reader’s shock and awe. It was a pleasure and a relief to find a faith-based, cleanly written, action-packed story that still gave a genuine description of the give and take of love and war.
Readers can connect with the realistic struggle of two human hearts torn between commitment and duty as they root for Cynthia and Rick on and off the battlefield. The storyline holds the reader’s attention as the characters navigate the jungles of Africa and the jungles of politics, trying to sidestep the mines that strain a growing relationship. This intense story becomes even more magnificent when you see the characters standing their ground with brave faith and praying brave prayers throughout multiple life-changing trials. You do not want to miss this one.
This perfect read for all ages is Book One of the Love and Honor series and releases on September 6th, 2022 and will be treasure to anyone looking for a love story with adventure.
