Review: Surround Me by:Marguerite Martin Gray
About the Book:
As the dark curtain of the rumors of revolution threatens to descend, Louis Lestarjette pursues his relationship with Elizabeth even as the emotional and physical struggles set the course for a life of changes. Will his commitment to God stay firm, or will the tide of change cause fear and flight?
The chance of reconciliation with England moves further out to sea, leaving Elizabeth Elliott on the shores of surrender to a greater challenge. Although others of unwavering courage give her strength, she must choose to allow God's love to surround her. How can she enter into a marriage during a time of uncertainty? Will selfish, safer options take her away from Louis and his love?
Set in 1773 Charles Town, Surround Me, the sequel to Hold Me Close, takes the reader into the lives of colonists confronting imminent change and unpredictable circumstances binding them together to become a formidable force.
God always keeps things interesting. Anyone that has been a Christian long and has a very close relationship with God will tell you. He is a very fly by the seat of your pants type of individual and when following Him it will always lead you on the adventure of a lifetime. He is in no way dull.
The Revolutionary War brought about a lot of uncertainty for many, many people. The two main characters in the very well written novel; Surround Me, definitely display that uncertainty well within the pages of the story. The only way that people can get through perilous times is to give it all to God. These changes can usually drive a person to fall to their knees and call out to Him like never before.
Elizabeth and Louis find themselves in just the right situation for this perfect storm of sorts. The type of perfect storm that the devil creates in order for you to doubt God and doubt every promise He has ever given you. Poor Elizabeth and Louis, I was able to be drawn into their love affair right from the beginning. The author takes you on a journey of love, loss, and uncertainty of the future. Surround Me is beautifully written and a great addition to the Revolutionary Faith series.
