Author: Robert Whitlow

Genre: Christian Fiction, Suspense, Legal Drama

Release Date: January 14, 2020

Promised-Land-cover-673x1024With historical mysteries, religious intrigue, and political danger, Promised Land asks one momentous question: what if your calling puts you—and your family—in the crosshairs?

Despite their Israeli citizenship, Hana and Daud cannot safely return to their homeland because a dangerous terrorist ring is threatening Daud. Hana is perfectly fine remaining in the United States, working for a law firm in Atlanta, especially when she learns she’s pregnant. But Daud can’t shake the draw to return home to Israel, even if it makes him a walking target.

Hana is helping her boss plan a huge Middle East summit in Atlanta when Jakob Brodsky, her old friend and former co-litigator, asks for her help with a current case. His client is attempting to recover ancient artifacts stolen from his Jewish great-grandfather by a Soviet colonel at the end of World War II. Because the case crosses several national borders, he knows he needs Hana’s knowledge and skill to get to the bottom of what happened to these precious artifacts.

Meanwhile, Daud is called in to help a US intelligence agency extract a Ukrainian doctor from a dangerous situation in Egypt. While overseas, he can’t resist the call of Jerusalem and thus sets off a series of events that puts thousands of people in danger, including his wife and unborn child.

Bestselling author Robert Whitlow explores the meaning of family and home—and how faith forms the identity of both—in this breathtaking follow-up to Chosen People.

 

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK 

Robert Whitlow has a unique way of telling a story, and I enjoy his books. In Promise Land, I quickly fell in love with Hana and her husband Daud. They were a loving and Christian couple, and at times, I was wanting the strong faith Hana had. And I love Avi and the fun she brought to the story as well. The dangers in Daud’s assignments were scary, to say the least, and Hana’s faith through it all was amazing. But as readers follow their journey, it does get dangerous. What will happen to this couple? Will they be able to go back to their homeland?

For me, it took a while to get into this story, but after a while, it starts making sense, and I started enjoying this journey with Daud and Hana. There is a lot going on in this story, and you have to read the book to know the full effect. As I read through the book, I was in awe of the details this author used in describing each scene. I felt as though I was living the story with these characters. Daud and Hana are a very interesting couple to read about, and you will enjoy getting to know them. Author Robert Whitlow shows off his writing skills well in this book, I think the writing is phenomenal. He does such a fantastic job of writing in the personalities of each character, and weaving the Christian faith and lifestyle into their lives is done in a tasteful and subtle way that seems effortless.

If you enjoy a good clean, enjoyable with a bit of mystery and dangerous thrown in, I highly recommend Promise Land. If you haven’t read anything from this author, now is the time to start! You won’t be disappointed, this is for sure.
