Litfuse Review: The Brothers' Keepers by:N L B Horton

The Brothers' Keepers (Parched, #2)
About the Book:
A friend's deception. A family's dilemma.

While cataloging looted antiquities in Brussels, archaeologist Grace Madison discovers that her daughter has vanished in France, and her son's bride has been attacked in Switzerland. After the Madison family unearths a relic whose taproot pierces the Ancient Near East, they realize that before they can save themselves, they must rescue an old friend. If he'll let them.

Because choosing what's right is all that's left.

About the Author:
After an award-winning detour through marketing and a master's degree from Dallas Theological Seminary, NLBHorton returned to writing. She has surveyed archaeological digs under heavy artillery and machine gun fire from Syria and Lebanon (twice!). Calmly tossed a tarantula from her skiff into the Amazon after training with an Incan shaman. And consumed tea on five continents.
A member of the venerable Explorers Club and mother of two adult children (the activities are related), she lives atop a Rocky Mountain with her husband of thirty years. She's passionate about her faith, archaeology, women's issues, and the environment. She's also a world-class angler, competent wing-shooter, and dirt-encrusted gardener. 
My Review:
 Sometimes you have to rest in the fact that God has got this even if it appears to be otherwise. As this story goes along, Grace Madison will soon see that all she wants is peace for her family and she will take that fear and hand it over to a power higher than she, to get her family back. A family relying on God to get them to that place that every family deserves to be. Based all around an ancient relic this family is subjected to a lot of fear and uneasiness before they get to their day of reckoning.

 The author knows her characters intimately and you can tell. The writing displays a deep reliance on the confidence of each character. Page after page the story of suspense deepens and widens as Grace inches closer to answers. If you are interested in learning more, you can here.
