Ok. First let me say, I love a good action flick or book.
Really I do. I like to sit on the edge of my seat and wonder what’s going to happen next… it’s fun.
Torn Blood is definitely an exciting book. It ranks very HIGH up there with the excitement factor, really it does.
I don’t know if it just wasn’t the right time for me to be reading this book… planning a wedding, Thanksgiving and Christmas.. but I just couldn’t get into this book.
I’m hoping to pick it back up again in the future, but for now I’ve lent it out to a dear friend and he is LOVING it!
So don’t listen to me.. ha ha..
Check it out for yourself and let me know what you think.
Behind the Book
Since its founding on May 14, 1948, no country has proven more controversial than Israel as headlines, the world over, challenge its rights as a sovereign nation. Why does this tiny nation hold the world’s attention and compel governments around the globe to shun recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s undivided capital?
In his debut novel, Torn Blood (Bo Iti Press, Fall 2013), author David J. Bain probes these questions in a story that asks if justice can prevail for a people maligned and persecuted over the ages because of their birthright.
Three weeks before reporting for duty at the U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv, Addison Deverell arrives in Israel on a mission—to find the source of the conflict between Arabs and Jews. Bound to an escort by the embassy, he is unable to begin his search as time is running out. Mere days before he must report for duty, Addison is freed from his forced escort as another escort takes his place. Addison issues an ultimatum that, with or without help, he is going into Palestinian territory for answers he can’t find in Israel. As Addison races to uncover the truth that promises to establish a career, he faces danger from those he seeks to understand and finds himself a pawn in an international plot to drive Israel’s Jews into the sea.
Nearly seven thousand miles away in Oregon, Dr. Janelle Henning confronts a secret that threatens to destroy the only family she’s ever known. A search for understanding thrusts her into a world long buried to confront a birthright hidden by the passage of time. Brought together by events, Janelle and Addison discover hidden identities in a relationship they have shared for a lifetime.
