My Review:
 All Mallory Hammond has ever wanted to do was save a life. Although her parents advise her against it, she feels she is old enough to make this decision for herself. After some trial and error she finally finds someone that she may be able to finally help.

 Tate Webber, has loved Mallory for years and is willing to do anything she wants. But when she decides to travel out of the country to help someone she met over the internet, Tate tries to convince her that this is a bad idea.

 Going to Pakistan is more ten Mallory imagined. Gun fights, black outs, and staying held up like a hostage was a little more than she agreed to. After numerous attempts getting the Wi-Fi password to access the internet so that she can contact loved ones she soon realizes that this guy may not have her best interests at heart. She is a smart girl and finds a way around his attempts of trying to keep her from the outside world.

 After Mallory's emails seem to drop off, Tate realizes that he must rely on God now more than ever if Mallory is ever to return safely.

Beth Wiseman is a brilliant story teller. Her books are just captivating and can be easily imagined by the reader. She has a heart for writing well crafted stories that will make your head spin!
