SIDE BY SIDE
In the dusty, Islamic country of Sudan, Mia's life collides with that of another young woman. A young Christian American mother, Mia finds more than one dark secret on the streets of Khartoum. She finds Halimah, a young, upper-class Arab student with a bright future in her family's business whose risky and secretive decision has put her life in danger. What happens when the path of young mother intersects with that of a spunky Sudanese student? God transforms them both . . .forever.
Part of New Hope® Publishers' contemporary missional fiction line, Side by Side opens the reader's eyes to the life of Muslims in Sudan as well as some of the struggles that Christians face when living under Islamic law. The reader will be inspired to pray for those who are persecuted for their faith as well as pray for the salvation of those who persecute.
Impressive book, though fictional it's realistic and puts your focus on how much alike people are although we may be thousands of miles apart in distance and lifestyle. An inspiring story and written so beautifully... Jana Kelley is talented. The trials experienced by a girl after accepting Jesus as her Savior are, to say the least, difficult & dangerous living in a land where that is strictly forbidden.
Well done Jana!
I received a copy of this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
