Karen Kingsbury- A Distant Shore

A new book by Karen Kingsbury will always be on my must read list.  I was looking forward to this one.  The cover drew me in.  This was a page turner and I finished it one night.  

This book is a little different than her regular books.  I found this one being a little difficult to read.  It was about child trafficking.  The topic alone is hard to read about but necessary.

The characters, Jack and Eliza, were two young people who were determined to conquer evil.  What was behind their determination?  The book explores this and what is needed for them to heal from their loss and pain.

Each chapter started with a Bible quote.  I found this to be uplifting and encouraging.  There were many that were my favorites. This is the one that I have held onto all my life.

Jeremiah 29:11

11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

A Distant Shore is a must read.  I received this book for free from Simon &  Schuster to give a honest review.
