Really had a hard time trying to figure this book out. First part is this air-head ditz going to New Guinea to follow a dream she keeps having...gets captured by a savage tribe...and then the second half of the book is about her son, now grown up and mentored by some Shaman. There is a lot of spiritualism and religious ideas thrown in here and if that's your cup of tea, kudos. But me, I couldn't grasp where the book was going so for that reason, I'm not recommending this book.

The first part about Julian’s journey is harrowing, heartbreaking, and stunningly incredible all at the same time. The 2nd part is Stephen's story about showing love to a group of people overcome with power struggles and hate. The author treats the fictitious tribe respectfully. The story is surprising at points. I liked the jungle setting-- I enjoyed it.

my first Ted Dekker book and now i am hooked! Very powerful writer and some very incredible and inspiring messages. He cuts to the heart of what the "Good News" is all about. This book has challenged to live to really live and love more! Good Job! 5 stars for sure

Incredible. Inspiring. Eye-opening. I wasn't expecting to read this book, but I'm glad I did. Very well written, and cuts to the core (like most Ted Dekker books). Two thumbs up!

This book was WONDERFUL. After the section titled "18 years later" I was incredibly challenged. I copied parts of it and may use it as part of my devotions. The challenge is to separate our true self, our life in Christ, with these earthly bodies we are so consumed by.

Really good book!! It has some very key themes about forgiveness and redemption and belonging to Christ hidden amongst the drama and adventure of the exciting story!

I am a fan of Ted Dekker, and I couldn't wait to read this latest book because of the fact that some of the storyline comes straight from his childhood, however, I found myself a little disappointed. In true Dekker form, there are twists and unexpected turns, but I felt confused more than surprised. I didn't know where the book was going and then when it got there it left me feeling like it was a long way of getting somewhere all too quickly. Strange ending in my opinion but if you like this author then it's worth the read.
