Door to Freedom {A Fantastic Novel}

When I first started reading Door to Freedom, I feared I might have to "muscle through" to complete it. Instead, I stayed up late to finish it and went to bed feeling like it was Christmas Eve--so very excited to be a Christian! I needed to truly be reminded how many people are persecuted for their faith, how many people are seeking out Truth, and how many people are risking their jobs and have given up Western comforts to share about Christ around the world. Jana Kelley has created a novel rich in character development, sensitivity and empathy. It is very deep and an easy read at the same time. I've never read anything quite like it, and am making it a point to read her previous novel as well as her future ones!

Door to FreedomDoor to Freedom (New Hope, February 2017)
It’s rough and it’s smooth. It’s dark and it’s light. It’s a masterpiece. It’s us. Here in Sudan. We are scared of it and drawn to it. There is an open door, and there is much opposition.
In the dusty, Islamic country of Sudan, Mia, who is raising her family in a Muslim country, has learned to boldly share her faith. Rania, the daughter of a wealthy Sudanese Arab, seeks to find the reason for her sister’s sudden disappearance. Mia holds some of the answers, but both women quickly discover they must each walk through their own doors to freedom, the freedom that only comes when you trust God’s sovereignty more than manmade security.
Part of New Hope Publishers’ line of contemporary missional fiction, Door to Freedom, the sequel to Side by Side, opens the reader’s eyes to modern-day persecution and the life of Muslims in Sudan. Based on real-life events, Door to Freedom also reveals some of the struggles that Christians face when living under Islamic law. The reader will be inspired to pray for those who are persecuted for their faith as well as for the salvation of the persecutors.
