    Great story about religious and historical intrigu

    Promised Land is the second book in the legal thriller series, Chosen People, by Robert Whitlow. Having enjoyed reading this best-selling author's work for many years, I was looking forward to reading this newest release and was not disappointed. Even though Promised Land is second in a series, there is enough background given throughout the book that it can easily be read as a stand-alone story. Readers find Daud and Hana, Israeli Arabs, are now living in the United States and are working through their life as newlyweds. This multifaceted story is well written as Whitlow is an expert in writing legal fiction with action, intrigue, and twists to the plot that increase the suspense and keep a reader's interest high. With descriptive prose regarding Middle Eastern culture, customs, and cuisine, the reader is easily transported into the scenes of the book. I enjoyed how Hana's faith in God is portrayed as a very personal and transformative belief in a God who cares about and guides His children. As she and Daud think about the future and where their 'promised land' might be, will she recognize that sometimes that promised land of peace is a place within and not one of geography? I thoroughly enjoyed the story of the characters in the book--friends, family, colleagues, and even Leon, the dog. I am hoping there is more to come in this series. I received a complimentary copy of this book via CelebrateLit. A favorable review was not required, and the opinions are my own. This review is part of a CelebrateLit blog tour.

    Don’t put this down!

    ‘There is a promised land without and a land of promises within. Both realms are yours to possess if you pass the tests.’ - a blessing from Great-uncle Anwar Having throughly enjoyed Chosen People, I was looking forward to getting to know Hana and Daud a little better. This book certainly did not disappoint! As Christian Arabs they are in a unique position to influence many, especially since they are both fluent in several languages. Since Israel is no longer a safe place for them, they live and work out of Atlanta, GA. - she as a lawyer and he in intelligence and security. Leon, the dog, is just precious and brings a great deal of love and joy into the home. This incredible story of mystery, intrigue and suspense was action packed and had me holding my breath at times. I loved to see how Hana and Daud learned to work together in their marriage. Their continued seeking of God’s will led them through both danger and blessing. A lesson we could all learn, I’m sure. Young Sadie has become a force to be reckoned with and I enjoyed watching the relationship between Hana and her grow. I must admit I hope there is a third book coming! This ARC was received through Thomas Nelson, NetGalley and CelebrateLit. The comments and impressions are my own and were in no way solicited.

    Informative

    Although this is the second book in The Chosen People Novels I was able to read it as a stand-alone and follow what had happened to Hana and Daud in the previous installment. I found it fascinating to read about a different culture adapting to life in the United States including foods they eat. I loved the concept of the story and the dangerous situations they became involved in. You will travel from Georgia to the Middle East and experience the landscape, housing, cuisine, friendships, and family, as well as the evilness of jihad. My only problem with this book is I personally felt disconnected from the characters....like I was on the outside looking in instead of being drawn into their lives. I loved that Hana spent time in the middle of the night reading scriptures and praying and felt we should all be as devoted as she was. I enjoyed the addition of Leon, the dog, and the child, Sadie. Their interactions with Hana made her more real. I enjoyed the book and the pacing of it. I received a complimentary copy from CelebrateLit/author. The honest review and opinions are my own and were not required.

    Promised Land

    Robert Whitlow’s second installment from his Chosen People series, Promised Land was a great read. I enjoy reading this author’s work and I was not disappointed with this one. Since this is part of a series, I believe it would be best to read the first book, also, titled Chosen People, before beginning this one. I thought the book was far from predictable. While reading this, I never knew where the story was going to go until the next page. I felt like I was taking a thrilling ride around the world. The book was full of action and adventure that kept me on the edge of my seat. I would not expect any less from Mr Whitlock. He really knows how to keep his readers engaged. Promised Land gets a very well deserved five plus stars from me. I hope there will be more in the Chosen People series. I highly recommend this one. I received this book from the publisher. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.

    Captivating read full of mystery and intrigue:

    This book seamlessly combined politics, intrigue and religion. It was fast paced and action filled yet still with a human interest side that made it spellbinding. I thought the author gave an accurate portrayal of the situation in the Middle East and it provided insight into both sides of the equation. The book was informative yet the plot wasn't bogged down by all of the facts. I also found Hanna's faith and quiet times with God inspiring and moving. This was book two of the series and I would recommend reading them in order so as to get a complete picture of this young families journey. I received a free copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving a review. All opinions expressed are solely my own.
