PERSECUTED *A Book Review* + Giveaway

About The Book:
The Question Is Not IF Attempts Will Be Made to Limit Religious Freedoms, But When....

The most popular evangelist of his day, John Luther, simply wants to share the Gospel and enjoy a quiet life with his family. He never asked to be at the center of a political controversy, but an ill wind has been blowing through the halls of Congress, and supporters of a new religious-equality bill see Luther's endorsement as critical. But when Luther refuses to lend his support, he unknowingly sets in motion an explosive plan bent on destroying his reputation and undermining everything for which he stands. His once-normal life is turned upside down as he becomes a fugitive left with only one dangerous option--putting everything he holds most dear at risk while he fights to expose the truth. It is a mission that brings him face-to-face with the coming storm of persecution that could threaten the very fabric of our nation's freedoms.

OK, I must tell you....I requested to review this book because there's nothing like a good, suspenseful mystery. I also didn't know if I was going to like it. Politics and government are the last thing I really wanted to be reading about. 

I was hoping to receive this book in time for my 1500 mile trek back home to visit my family in IL. Well, it didn't make it and I thought the review needed to be posted by July 13th. What day did I return you ask? The evening of July 12th. So I tell my hubby that I will be locking myself away to get this book read before midnight on the 13th. 

I finally decided to check my email between chapters, and wouldn't you know that it's not due until July 18th! What a relief...so here I found out I had more time, BUT I couldn't stop reading! This story had pulled me in and I couldn't turn away. I had to know what was happening next.

Politics will cause people to do some pretty disturbing things. I would have never imagined John's "friend" would even consider something like this. After I read this story I watched the trailer for the upcoming movie, and I am looking forward to seeing it. Right now it won't be showing at a theater within 50 miles from me...Booo. I hope that changes. The writer left it open in case something else should happen to John and his family, so maybe there will be a sequel to this story.

I really hate giving away all the goods to the story in my reviews so you really must read it yourself if you want to know everything!
