Rated 5 out of 5 by from Survival I am not a fan of sci-fi, but the concept of this book intrigued me, and I am so glad that I read it. The book starts with all kind of war action, and as the blip in the back of the book explains, our hero Roger Greene is shot down. He has a remarkable survival rate even before the atrocious actions of the Nazis, the amazing way he lands his disabled plane, and then the lock up. I can’t imagine being in a cell, no matter how nice for seventy years, no way, but he found a way to survive and keep his sanity. He also finds God, although he has always been there with him, he leans to acknowledge and lean on Him and it makes all the difference. I loved the people God puts in front of Roger, and how he makes it to the present. I loved the fast pace of this book, the suspense and intrigue, there doesn’t seem to a dull moment, and the pages quickly fly. There is a bit of romance, and you will wonder whom he should trust, and hopefully he will be right. Don’t miss this book, it will really make you think, and be appalled and wonder if there are really Organizations like the Heritage that really exist, we can sure hope not. I received this book from the Publisher Kregel, and was not required to give a positive review.
