This story deals with some difficult issues, sexual abuse, kidnapping, murder, and racism. Amy Wallace does a great job not only in presenting the issues, but also the characters deal with these issues in mature and responsible ways (mostly). Even though it was a bit tough to read, as I kept getting disgusted at what these people were doing, I'm glad I finished it. This book is well worth it!

Wallace does a great job in developing her characters. I could almost feel what Hanna was going through, and I felt the rage that her brother and boyfriend experienced throughout. Even the small characters were believable. The only characters I didn't connect with were the bad guys, I don't share their beliefs and so I didn't quite understand where they were coming from with the hate. Kudos for Wallace for being able to write those characters without loosing herself. In the acknowledgment she hints at how emotionally difficult it was to write this book, and after reading it I can see why.

The dialogue was a little hard to follow at times but other than that it was very well written. Wallace tells the story and leaves out the mundane details (no overly explained settings or descriptions). The writing is clear and to the point, I think for this story to be as good as it was the extra details would have been too much!

I would recommend this book to anyone. I would have to warn that the subject matter can be a little hard to digest, but don't let it deter you from picking this one up.

Great book and I will be getting more from Mrs. Wallace in the future!

Hannah Kessler has a secret from childhood that she intends to keep hidden until she sees part of that secret on America's Most Wanted. If she reports the man she knows is guilty it will open up a part of her that has remained closed for 20 years. But what will happen if she doesn't? Her instinct has always been to run. Will her love for Michael and concern for her friends and family keep her grounded? She is trying to understand faith and prayer but with all she's been through it seems God has forgotten her.
Michael Parker is working on a difficult case in Crimes Against Children Unit at the FBI. They are after a white supremacist leader who is trying to "purify" the nation with ruthless killings of women and children of other nationalities. Michael struggles with faith as he sees one of the groups members released on a technicality. He struggles with prayer when it seems like God isn't answering and when his precious Hannah ends up in the middle of trouble he struggles with the issue of justice vs. revenge. How can he be what Hannah needs when he struggles with his own past issues.
How can Michael and Hannah's love survive when both have been so hurt? Can God truly heal those inner places enough to knit these two hearts together?

Book 3 in the Defender's of Hope Series keeps you on the edge of your seat from start to finish. Although not an easy subject matter, Amy does a excellent job in handling it. You also get to catch up with all the characters from Ransomed Dreams and Healing Promises. That's one thing I love about Amy's books is the way she keeps all the characters in all the books. That makes for a very fulfilling story. It's almost like one big story except the focus of each story is on one main character. I appreciate that style because you really come to know these fictional characters almost like real people.
I highly recommend this book. You could read this as a stand alone but recommend you read Randsomed Dreams and Healing Promises to give the complete story. Great work Amy!
