This audiobook brought me into trouble because I could't stop hearing it - whether I was cooking, cleaning, driving or should be sleeping. The story of a the Quaker girl Hannah Sunderland who becomes a spy in the Colonial cause, because her brother is in jail is both thrilling and romantic. I didn't know much about this part of history but now I can imagine a little bit more what it was like to have to decide on which side you stand. What the book tells is that you can't choose to be on no side. The decision Hannah takes changes her life, her faith and her relationships and this is really worth hearing!

Striking beauty comes at a price. Rahab paid it when at the age of 15 she was sold into prostitution by the one man she loved and trusted—her father. With her keen mind and careful planning she turned heartache into success, achieving independence while still young. And she vowed never again to trust a man. Any man. God had other plans. Into the emotional turmoil of her world walked Salmone, a prominent leader of Judah, held in high esteem by all Israel.

This book really touched my heart. While hearing the audiobook I often found tears rolling down my cheek. Not because the story is gooey but because it gives a deeper understanding of Gods love and grace. Why does this holy God choose someone with an ugly past to be in the lineage of his son. The book by Tessa Afshar reveals a piece of the unmerited love of God and his power to heal broken hearts, to overcome lies and to receive forgiveness.

First of all - I love Kate Forbes reading books! Her voice just matches the story of a dreamy girl pushed into an adventure she only read in books before. The characters are all well elaborated and story makes one laugh as well as reflect on ones life. Simply a great (audio) book!
