The prophet, along with my God, is the watchman over Ephraim, yet snares await him on all his paths, and hostility in the house of his God. - New International Version (©1984)
|The Watchman of Ephraim|
this is a gripping read from cover to cover, well researched and skillfully written. it is a frightening look at a plausible scenario - a big "what if it happens again." the characters are three dimensional and the action does not let up until the end. there are tender moments as well that balances out the violence and menace in some of the chapters.
i had to remind myself that even though this was based on one of humanity's darkest moments in history, author Gerard de Marigny's book is pure fiction - an exercise in creativity and imagination. it is my fervent hope that it stays that way.
