Two Destinies

This week, the
Christian Fiction Blog Alliance
is introducing
Two Destinies
David C. Cook (September 1, 2012)
Elizabeth Musser


Elizabeth Musser, author of acclaimed novels such as The Swan House, grew up in Georgia, but now lives in Lyon, France, where she and her husband serve as missionaries with International Teams. Look for Two Testaments, her sequel to Two Crosses, in stores now, and Two Destinies, the third book in the trilogy, set for release in Fall 2012.

A word from Elizabeth:

Recent exciting news is that, finally, the whole trilogy is going to be published in 2012. Many readers have written to me throughout the years to encourage me to keep pursuing getting Two Destinies into print. In a fun twist of fate (really the Lord's perfect timing), David C. Cook (who originally published Two Testaments) has offered me a contract for all three novels. The Secrets of the Cross Trilogy will be published in June 2012 (Two Crosses and Two Testaments) and in September, 2012, Two Destinies will be in the bookstores for the first time!


Now 1994, France faces unrest and rising poverty while neighbor

Algeria is in the midst of a blood civil war. Risléne Namani, a French

woman born to Algerian parents, converts to Christianity and falls in

love with Eric Hoffmann, a Christian, committing the unpardonable

sin in the eyes of her Muslim family. Eric must find a way to rescue

her—from a forced marriage in Algeria, or even death.

A powerful, relevant tale of social struggle, heartache, cultural conflict,

 and faith put to the ultimate test.

My Thoughts:

In my review I could share how "Two Destinies" is a wonderful love story and a very real & current look at the Islamic religion. The extremes that the Muslim culture will go to, to make certain those who do not believe and/or follow their ways, is, in a word, unbelievable!

But when I say "Two Destinies" is a wonderful love story, I don't mean just the typical romantic love story between a man and woman even though you see that with Eric and Rislene. Two Destinies is a powerful love story of those who serve as missionaries. Those who risk so much on a daily basis, so that they can bring the message of Christ to the lost. The sacrifices they make, and the dangers they face, will reveal the ultimate love story.

I HIGHLY recommend this book! Definitely a 5 &heart;s ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥'s

Happy Reading!
