ABOUT THE BOOK
If you'd like to read the first chapter of Seek and Hide, go HERE.
Although the premise of this book is sobering and scary - an America where Christianity is illegal, the Bible is banned, and only state approved churches are allowed - this was a great read that I found hard to put down.
It is a fact that this premise could happen here some day, and most likely will, and the author did a great job of portraying what life might be like for Christians in that day. It wasn't a mystery/suspense novel, but it was still a very suspenseful read.
I liked the main character, Marcus a lot. He wasn't perfect, a new Christian battling alcoholism, but very willing to risk his life to help other Christians, or "family" as he thought of them.
This is the first book this author has had published, and it is a great debut novel. It is also the first book in a series, and I am looking forward to reading more in this series. I highly recommend,
