I'm not a huge James Paterson fan, but every now and again his titles will pique my interest. I saw this while browsing at the library. I really liked it a lot and would highly recommend it! Different than his normal writing!
One of Patterson's best collaborations! This book started in an action packed exciting war, in the war torn fields of South Sudan during its bloody Civil war/genocide. Brigid Fitzgerald is a godly woman, a doctor who volunteers at a primitive field hospital in the war torn area. She escapes there with her life, and continues doing good deeds in other hot spots in the Middle East and elsewhere. She also has an unusual relationship with God, who speaks to her occasionally. Her life progresses in many unusual and controversial ways. A good read.
