As a Book Reviewer, I received a free ebook copy of At War With the Wind: the Fight for Abigail by D. Richard Ferguson. I was not required to write a positive review or any review. This is the sequel to Escape From Paradise, and this is my honest review.
I found the beginning of this book a little slow, and at first I thought it was going to be too much like Escape From Paradise. But after just a few chapters, things picked up and became very interesting and intense. This book focused on the same handful of main characters, but also added a couple new ones. The story line went even deeper than the story line of Escape From Paradise.
Abigail was in grave danger in this book. As her friends went to her aid, they stepped into danger as well. Abigail’s predicament kept me turning page after page to see how things would turn out.
As in Escape from Paradise, Adam is one of the main characters in this story and to see the progress in his character growth and the choices he makes between the two books is encouraging. Adam is my favorite character in both books.
One scene in this book really stood out to me and included a quote that resonated so deep with me that I wrote it down to keep to encourage me and to share with others. Many people ask, “If God is such a loving God, why does he allow bad things to happen and if God is a loving God, why would he send anyone to Hell?” I believe this quote gives a very good answer to these questions: “For a man (I insert “God” here) of love, anger toward that which destroys good is a moral necessity. One who loves cares. And one who cares can never be apathetic about that which threatens the object of his love.”
These books are definitely worth reading.
I have to say that D. Richard Ferguson is an outstanding author and I highly recommend these two books to anyone who longs for a story that expresses truth and hope. And if you enjoy stories filled with adventure and suspense, these books are for you. If you’re a fan of Pilgrim’s Progress by Paul Bunyan, these books will also become favorites.
I give At War With the Wind: the Fight for Abigail 5 stars.
Join me here again tomorrow to read my interview with the author of these books, D. Richard Ferguson.
