After reading the first book "Masked by Moonlight" and giving it a rather poor review I was reluctant to try it's sequel. But I had bought them together and well, I had to give it a fair chance. After all, the sequel was written a couple of years later and things could only improve, right? Yes, RIGHT!
The sequel, "Mission of Hope" (which can also stand alone, thank
goodness!) is FANTASTIC! I felt that the characters were extremely well
developed in this story and REAL.
The emotion was gutsy; I even teared
up at one point when a little girl who lost her baby sister after the
earthquake humbly requests a doll on the "Midnight Messenger" post.
Heart strings are meant to be pulled and this novel delivers :)
The romance had depth and was heartfelt. Overall, the book is a winner and I think most anyone will enjoy reading it.
There is no cussing, and no sexual situations. The "preachiness" is minimal. More of a "God give me strength" kind of thing.
