The Morning Star Rises by Sara Davison

Amazon Review:

In the midst of all the fear and confusion, only one thing is clear …
This isn’t over yet. Jesse Christensen is out of the army, but the real battle has just begun. As martial law continues in Canada in 2054, Major Gallagher has taken over the city. His oppression of believers intensifies in response to a so-called radical Christian group that claims responsibility for more terrorist attacks. But is Gallagher acting in a professional capacity, or is he carrying out a personal vendetta? Meryn O’Reilly faces a dark and uncertain future after shocking revelations devastate her life. She is determined to follow God’s call, but her plans could cost her everything. She and Jesse struggle to surrender everything to a God who is always in control, even when circumstances suggest otherwise. With the world descending into chaos around them, Meryn and Jesse face the greatest barrier to their love yet–a barrier that may prove too strong to breach.

My Review:
Are you ready to sacrifice everything to follow Jesus? That is the theme of this book and Sara Davison weaves that question throughout the book. I found this book to be really captivating. It’s one of those books that truly could happen. I found myself thinking about what I would do if I had to answer that question. Both Meryn and Jessie were believable and relatable. I liked how the story wasn’t all happy ever after but dealt with some serious issues such as trust, forgiveness and belief. I think that a good book is one the reader can relate to and often apply the same principles and lessons to their own life. I don’t want to give away the plot so you’ll just have to read the book.
I recommend this book to family and friends. 
 
I received this book as a review book for my honest opinion.
