The Missionary by William Carmichael and David Lambert is an exciting tale of a missionary family, the Ellers, who work among the poor children of Venezuela. David Eller feels that he’s not making a big enough difference and eventually makes a decision that changes their lives forever.
This novel is not about mission work per se. It is more of an adventure/spy novel. This was some of the most enjoyable reading I’ve had in a while. It kept me wanting to read more. Even after the last page, I wish it had continued . The authors make you really care about the main characters…and hate the bad guys. Sometimes it was so frustrating because I just wanted the “good guys” to be safe…even though, ahem, they’re not real people . This novel was so interesting that I discussed it with both my mom and dad while I was reading it. The book looks thick but the tension and action will keep you reading right through. I would like to read more from these talented authors. I recommend The Missionary.
