Book Review: The Girl Behind the Red Rope by Ted and Rachelle Dekker

The Girl behind the Red Rope by [Dekker, Ted, Dekker, Rachelle]

The Girl behind the Red Rope

Ten years ago, Grace saw something that would forever change the course of history. When evil in its purest form is unleashed on the world, she and others from their religious community are already hidden deep in the hills of Tennessee, abiding by every rule that will keep them safe, pure--and alive. As long as they stay there, behind the red perimeter.

Her older brother's questions and the arrival of the first outsiders she's seen in a decade set in motion events that will question everything Grace has built her life on. Enemies rise on all sides--but who is the real enemy? And what will it cost her to uncover the truth?

For the first time, bestselling authors Ted Dekker and Rachelle Dekker team up and deliver an intense, tightly focused ride through the most treacherous world of all.

My thoughts:

This was about the weirdest story that I've ever read but yet I never wanted to put it down. I was frankly worried at times that maybe it wasn't Christian fiction and wondered what I was reading!  I'll say it happened many times as I was reading... but oh it was.  It all came together perfectly and it's one book that will stay with me for a long time.  

Descriptions were so detailed I could see in my mind what the little girl looked like all the way to the sickly Dad.  I felt like I knew the characters and I could picture the town square perfectly. Grace, though,  remained my favorite character throughout.  She was strong, more than she knew.  

Reading The Girl Behind the Red Rope. makes me think how easily that we can be swayed.  Our fears can certainly over take us.

I do feel like I need to give some sort of warning, some of the things were hard to read about and were very sad.   

What a great, great book.  These authors gave it their all.

This book was given to me by Revell and this is my honest opinion.
