Wonderful Story! A Must Read! - Books Review: Isle of Shadows

I'm back with another book review!

In exchange for my honest review published here, I was provided with an ebook copy of Isle of Shadow by Tracy L. Higley through the BookSneeze program of Thomas Nelson Publishing.

I was very excited to get to read this book! I had previously read a similar series called Acts of Faith by T. Davis Bunn and Janette Oke, and had really enjoyed those books. This one is set in Rhodes rather than Rome and the time period is a few hundred years earlier, but the stories are similar in that a slave learns the true meaning of freedom and redemption.

I have never read anything by Tracy Higley, but I am already a fan! The story was very well written, captured my attention right away and kept me coming back for more! The book is action packed with a few twists and turns, and keeps you wondering right to the end how Tessa will find her freedom! I mistakenly thought this was a romance, but there is very little romance in the story – however, I found I didn’t miss it. The compassion the characters have for Tessa’s plight is very touching, and moved me to tears at one point. Overall I give this one five stars! I loved it!

*Ü* Blessings,
