don t think I could be proud the author Not to mention the omantic love story I think I ve said it about every book Sarah Monzon has written but this book is her best yet By miles I cried at the endand by the end I mean the author s notes And duhduring the story *Too 3If You Re Deciding Between Two *3If you e deciding between two omances to buy please PLEASE choose this one It will challenge you comfort you keep you eading long into the night as I lay in bed writing this it s lo Spoilers folksY all This book was so so beautifully written The descriptions made me want to stay in the world forever It was so well developed and so eal and drew me in Taking to the Streets: The Transformation of Arab Activism right from the very beginning I m amazed by the author s talent and ability to spin a world so thoroughly It takes place in the desert so not an actual different world just one I m not very familiar with So why the lowating Sadly there was a lot of content in this book that I didn t agree with Yes I get why the author did it and that s why I wanted to Selling Beauty: Cosmetics, Commerce, and French Society, 1750–1830 read it in the first place because Esther s account in the Bible is one of my favorites Yet I feel like it sather dangerous to promote what the author did mainly the main character who is a christian marrying a muslim after praying about it for a day and not seeking out counsel simply because she felt like God told her to And as someone who has muslim friends I Men of Empire: Power and Negotiation in Venice's Maritime State really don t think there s any way that someone who was as strong as a muslim as her husband would have ever knowingly married a christian There were a few other things that bothered me but that was the main one The magic of this book was twofold It took me to a completely different culture and place and made it come alive which can be hard to do when what is being described is so foreign to what I know and Sarah created a believable marriage of convenience story in modern times that didn t feel cheesy Thoseeasons alone are A Gift of Time: Continuing Your Pregnancy When Your Baby's Life Is Expected to Be Brief reason enough to give this book five stars Well I m gobsmacked Not sure I can find the words to express what an impact this book made on me How much I loved the hero and heroine and their sublimeomance even though it seemed like it shouldn t workFirst things first dust off your fainting couch which shouldn t take too long if you e anything like me Mine gets uite thei don t think i could be proud
Work Out With Allout with all omance I love to ead And then prepare to give yourself plenty of savoring time because Monzon has created such spellbinding imagery that you ll be tempted to linger for awhileWe are treated to two very distinct first person points of view courtesy of Hannah and Karim And I do mean distinct Karim s voice is soe. Hannah Pratt dreams of starting a school for the Bedouin clan she grew up with as a missionary kid and finally her hopes are coming true But shortly after she eturns to the desert from her college years in the US she discovers her parents have eceived threats from their Muslim neighbors As the danger escalates Hannah finds she’s in the middle of a battle no. Xotic Not sure if that s uite the
right word but somehow the author brings a multicultural flare to his thoughts It s in the cadenceword but somehow the author brings a multicultural flare to his thoughts It s in the cadence his words and the imagery he conjures up to describe or explain somethingor someone Like Hannah Swoon Fainting couch here I come And it s also apparent in the everence he has for his people and his
#GodAnd Hannah Caught Between Two #Hannah caught between two She s lived among the Bedouin clan since she was six with the exception of a sojourn stateside for college In some ways she s spent her whole life trying to fit in not Arabian enough for her beloved clansmen and women and not American enough for her college friends She s a uniue blend of both cultures and doesn t uite fit with either though there s no doubt her heart belongs to the people of the desertHannah is an interesting mix of Conviction And Trepidation She Struggles As Many Of Us Do and trepidation She struggles as many of us do being enough Doubts and feelings of inadeuacy threaten the life God is leading her towards Emotions are Student Movements for Multiculturalism: Challenging the Curricular Color Line in Higher Education raw circumstances uneasy and Hannah has to step out in faith in the midst of turmoil Such a beautiful parallel to the biblical Esther s storyAnd the ending goosebumpaising hallelujah chorus singing perfection Life Fully Booked Review of The Esther ParadigmThis is superlative Christian fiction filled with hope Confessions of an Unlikely Runner: A Guide to Racing and Obstacle Courses for the Averagely Fit and Halfway Dedicated romance action and the true love of God woven throughout this gorgeously written story This is a beautifully written book The characters are written so well that you will take part in the emotions of the characters theeader is drawn in to the dry dessert the camel ides and the thrill of something as simple as waterI love that the American family fully puts themselves into the culture of where they live It is in Hannah s naturea strong part of her just like her faith The love story from children to adulthood is beautifully and seamlessly done There was only one thing that I d have preferred to be different two incidents that I would want switched in time just looking at it with my heart as if Hannah were my daughter Yes this book puts you IN it so well that it had me viewing it as if I WAS there I truly loved that about this eadThis story has suspense Lauter alte Akten.

Eady to swoon y all but also because the heart of Jesus shines through every pageHannah is in a tough situation one that in many ways parallels the Biblical story of Esther As the daughter of missionaries to the Bedouins Hannah has grown up in a world that most of us would struggle to adapt to even for just a FEW DAYS HER FAITH IS TESTED LIKE NEVER BEFORE days Her faith is tested like never before it s also strengthened like never before Several parts of Hannah s story are uncomfortable for
we Western Jesus girls to consider but doesn t the story ofWestern Jesus girls to consider but doesn t the story of sit a little uncomfortably with us too I think Monzon has done an absolutely fantastic job of taking perhaps the most intriguing Biblical narrative and placing it in a contemporary context that captures us and leaves us iveted to the pageBottom Line The Esther Paradigm is Sarah Monzon s best book yet The whole story not to mention Karim himself is bravely uniue to Christian fiction but it is here for such a time as this This is a novel we for such a time as this This is a novel we need to Beasts and Savages read and ponder and allow the truth tucked inside the story to change our own hearts A mustead for everyone Can t Beebo Brinker recommend it highly enoughI borrowed this book through Kindle Unlimitedfirst seen at Reading Is My SuperPower I wish Goodreads and allowed for a 45ating because this story is wonderful Sarah Monzon has stepped into a world most Christian authors avoid and has penned a tale of beauty intrigue and tenderness The ending well was pretty perfect Sarah does a wonderful job of ushering The Future of the Public University in America: Beyond the Crossroads readers into a world of sandstorms and lumbering camels Of heavy lidded tents blowing in a sun scorched breeze with the scent of spices draping each breath But than that she opens up the possibility of two very different and not so different people braiding together with mutualespect and love to uncover Truth I am not well acuainted with the Muslim faith but I love how Sarah deals Manual of Forensic Science: An International Survey respectfully with the culture while a Another beautifulead from a very talented authorIt is no secret that I love all things written by Ms Monzon But this novel and the characters will stay by me for years Oh and the kiss Sigh That first kiss between Hannah and Karim Al Amir is probably one of my favorite novel kisses of ALL TIMES Sarah s writing skills just keep getting better and better The imagery in this book was outstanding I felt like I was there in the dessert Das Vermächtnis des Rings: Neue fantastische Geschichten J. R. R. Tolkien zu Ehren riding a camel The message ofeaching out to the non believer without judgement or intolerance was very clear But I understand the author s need to bring two uneually yoked characters together for the sake of the story but I would have liked it better if it had been by force or accident I think it would have taken a whole lot convincing for me to marry someone that was not only unsaved but practiced an anti Christian Die Stadt der Tiere: Ein Tierkrimi religion And I am positive these differences would have caused conflict in the marriage.
