Seek and Hide

This week, the
Christian Fiction Blog Alliance
is introducing
Seek and Hide
David C. Cook (September 15, 2014)
Amanda Stevens


As a child, Amanda G. Stevens disparaged Mary Poppins and Stuart Little because they could never happen. Now, she writes speculative fiction. She holds a Bachelor of Science degree in English and has taught literature and composition to home-school students. She lives in Michigan and loves books, film, music, and white cheddar popcorn. Amanda's first novel, Seek and Hide, will be available September 15, 2014 from David C Cook.


Six years ago, the government took control of the church. Only re-translated Bibles are legal, and a specialized agency called the Constabulary enforces this and other regulations. Marcus Brenner, a new Christian, will do anything to protect his church family from imprisonment--including risk his own freedom to gain the trust of a government agent. Aubrey Weston recanted her faith when the Constabulary threatened her baby. Now released, she just wants to provide for her son and avoid government notice. But she's targeted again, and this time, her baby is taken into custody. If only she'd never denied Him, maybe God would hear her pleas for help. When Aubrey and Marcus's lives collide, they are forced to confront the lies they believe about themselves. And God is about to grab hold of Marcus's life in a way he'd never expect, turning a loner into a leader.

Book Review

A lot of people think that Stephen King writes horror, but books like this are horror to me.   Reading it gave me heart palpitations.   I am not kidding.   I could not read this before bedtime like I normally do because it gave me nightmares.  Why?  Because it is realistic.  I guess that is why they call it speculative fiction.

Did that stop me from reading it?  No because it is so well written that it sucks you in so that you need to know what happens.    A United States where they do not allow us to practice our faith or have our Bibles does  not seem unrealistic considering all the things we see every day in the news.  In light of all we see around us this book seems more fact than fiction.

If you have a Kindle you can download it right now for only $3.99!   I wouldn't wait.  Download it NOW.  

"Seek and Hide" is my first "Must Read" book of 2015.   I loved this one so much I have already downloaded book 2, "Found and Lost" and pre-ordered book 3, "Take and Give". 

Thanks to CFBA for providing this complimentary book for review purposes.
