Review of Hannah Claire’s Wilderness
By the time I finished reading "Hannah Claire's Wilderness" by Caryl McAdoo, my heart did a jig. I so loved the ending...but then you'll have to read this very good book to discover that for yourself.
Eighteen year old Hannah is desperately in love with David, a man whose only passion is to gladly serve the Lord and save souls. The story opens in the USA, but quickly shifts to colonial Africa. In spite of experiencing miracles, Hannah is none too happy about her husband David answering God’s call. Although she calls her obsession love, she is also equally homesick for her family. When he leaves her behind to travel to a dangerous part of Nigeria, she lets her imagination run away with itself. At this point the story delves deeply into her psyche as we follow her every thought, action and motive until she reaches a life changing moment.
If three words could sum up this book, they would be "trust and obey". It's the lesson every Christian must learn sooner or later.
You'll need to beg, borrow or buy a copy of this very good book when it is released to find out more, but you won't regret wading through the murk of deepest darkness with Hannah until you reach the very satisfactory end of the story.
This reviewer thoroughly enjoyed reading a complimentary pre-release copy of this Christian/Pentecostal book.
