Chris Fabry wrote June Bug a couple of years ago, a book that all the "girls" in the family really enjoyed! Here I am, back with another book review of one of Chris Fabry's books. He writes on a hot topic, something that isn't so popular to write about: illegal immigration. Here's Borders of the Heart, by Chris Fabry. You'll see in my review, below, why I really like Chris Fabry's action-adventure books!
Book "trailer" for Borders of the Heart:
I get quite a few new books in the mail, sent to me for review purposes, but Chris Fabry is an author that I want to immediately pick up his books and start reading!
Forget the dirty dishes in the sink...
...the laundry awaiting me...
...and you say I have two children? That I'm supposed to be homeschooling?
Um, not right now - I'm busy reading Borders of the Heart!!!
Borders of the Heart is a quick read - that is, if you stay up late reading it past midnight like I did. Heh, heh. Who needs sleep, anyway? It's really overrated.
Not only is Borders of the Heart action-packed with the Mexican cartel, illegal immigration, shoot-outs, and the like, it also has the mention of rattlesnakes within the first two pages.
My mom started to read it and handed the book back to me. She doesn't do snakes. Even in books.
Well, snakes in real life aren't my favorite thing in the world, but I do fine with them when they're contained within words! Thankfully, there wasn't some freaky rattlesnake theme going on here throughout the book. Whew!
I don't want to give away the plot line of the book, but I do have to say that I very much appreciate reading a book that has everything I enjoy within the two covers: action, thought-provoking and inspiring words, seeing people change for the better, a godly message woven gently throughout, and no smut, swear words, or anything inappropriate - other than some people dying due to shootouts, stabbings, etc., which were tastefully written about. I'd feel comfortable having my junior high and high school daughters reading this book. If you like action-adventure books that both men and women would enjoy reading, this is a good one to consider.
