Really enjoying Chris Fabry's work these days. His books are compelling and always make me think.
J.D. Jessup has been working as a farmhand in Arizona, where he moved to escape some terrible memories - he is essentially 'running' from himself. His employer's one immovable rule is "if you see an illegal, call Border Patrol immediately". However, when the situation actually arises J.D. is hard pressed to be obedient, because his heart tells him otherwise. He hides the beautiful Maria, but soon learns that she is not all she seems to be (and it could be a deadly decision). This decision sets off a series of events that seem out of control, but all in all serve to bring J.D. full circle to the man he is supposed to be.
Although this wasn't my all-time favorite Chris Fabry book, I definitely enjoyed it and can wholeheartedly recommend it.
