When a fifty-year-old Western teacher in the Middle East discovers the details of her husband’s shaded past, their lives are turned upside down and a spiritual battle ensues, trapping the couple in the clutches of an enemy they are not prepared to fight. Can the familiar words of a stained and forgotten paperback Bible provide the anchor they need to hold them steady in an unfamiliar world of harsh and unforgiving rules and judgment?
This is the story of a Christian couple’s struggle as they search for God through a darkness that leaves them battle-scarred and spinning out of control. Surrounded by jaded white rules and black oppression, Beth and Simon discover a flickering light that steadily guides them back to an ancient wooden cross, where their Savior is waiting to lead them through their battles. Armed with a shining sword of truth, the couple finds forgiveness and hope for a marriage doomed for destruction.

I was awestruck by Ms. De Luca's ability to communicate the struggles this Christian couple faced as they attempted to salvage an endangered marriage while teaching in the Middle East. Her use of vivid imagery and detailed descriptions of demonic activity in every day living make this book captivating from the outset. I must warn you that once you begin reading this book you will have a difficult time putting it down. Her clever use of foreshadowing makes the reader want to continue reading to find out what happens next. This book is not just a good read as you will find solid teachings and sound advice for daily living.
