A glimpse into life of the Hezbollah where young boys are grabbed off the streets and disappear but where love can triumph over even these circumstances. This is the story of a young man named Joseph and his friend Fareed who are abducted and are forced to join the militia – witnessing atrocities that one could not imagine are being carried out on fellow humans. While one grows and thrives in this life, Joseph does not – he longs to escape back to his family and the girl he loves. Spending years in hiding to escape the military life a fleeting moment opens to allow him to get the U.S. – the question is will he survive the journey?
Pola Muzyka has woven a story that gives her readers a glimpse into what life is like under Sharia law and life in the Hezbollah, especially for an American Christian living this life. In reading this book there are moments that are ruthless in the violence depicted but such is the life in living in the Middle East. As Americans we hear about what happens over there and we’re told by those who want us to believe Sharia is a good way to live – however this book gives a much different story even though this is a work of fiction, even fiction can give factual information.
This is a great book if you’d like to learn more about living in the Middle East and the fear that even those just out for something to drink with friends must live under. Whether fiction or not, this book gives an insight into what goes on in the Middle East written by a fellow Christian who ministry is connecting Christians in the media.
