Author: Sara Davison

One of them is a prisoner and one of them is free. The same one.

Bookstore owner Meryn O’Reilly and Army Captain Jesse Christensen are on opposite sides of a battle. When martial law is declared, Jesse and his platoon are sent to Meryn’s city to keep an eye on the Christians and make sure they are not stepping outside of the confines of the law.

Fiery and quick-tempered, Meryn chafes under the curfew and other restrictions to her freedom. Jesse is equally amused, intrigued, and terrified by her spirit, knowing she could find herself in prison if she shows defiance to the wrong soldier.

His worst fears are realized when she commits a crime he cannot protect her from. Now they both face an uncertain future, and the very real threat of losing everything, including their lives. With time running out, Jesse works feverishly to convince the authorities to show leniency to Meryn. And to convince her that love can overcome any barrier that lies between them.

No one in the army can find out that Captain Jesse Christensen has become a believer. He and bookstore owner Meryn O’Reilly are forced to meet in secret, facing imprisonment or worse if they are found together. Their relationship deepens, but so does Lieutenant Gallagher’s hatred for the Christians in their city. As Gallagher’s power grows, it becomes clear that his connections go much further up the chain of command than anyone realized, putting all believers, especially Jesse, in extreme danger.

Meryn wants to give her heart to Jesse fully, but her past holds her back. Although circumstances conspire to keep her silent, she needs to tell him her secret. When he finds out what she has been keeping from him, nothing will stand between them anymore.

Or nothing will ever be the same.

    My Review:


    These books are a marathon read – by that I mean plan out enough time that you can read through all three in a short space of time.  You will not want to put them down once you start.  This series begins in 2053 with a terrorist attack attributed to The Horsemen, allegedly a Christian terrorist group.  The story takes place in Canada but the distrust of Christians extends to the USA and most other countries.  In Canada, widespread panic has led to martial law being declared and citizens’ rights being bypassed.  A curfew has been declared for all Christians and their Bibles confiscated.   Capt. Jesse Christensen is a soldier who has been tasked with enforcing the new laws in the small town of Kingston where his military base is located.  Meryn O’Reilly is a local Christian and bookstore owner that is annoyed by the new restrictions and both fascinated and annoyed by the Captain.  As the oppression continues, other terrorist attacks occur and other oppressive rules are put in place.  As Meryn, her siblings and friends and church family deal with these situations, two things occur.  Some marginal Christians deny the faith so that they can be relived of the rules and some people that were not practicing Christians are intrigued by the situation and seek out more information for themselves and some become Christians.  Meanwhile, another soldier at the base, Lt. Gallagher, seems to have a grudge against all Christians and also a vendetta for Capt. Christensen.  As he gains more power and gets promoted, life for all of the Christians and for some of the soldiers like Jesse and his friends, life becomes dangerous until finally some of the illegal happenings are dealt with and the real culprits ferreted out.  Sadly, the general feeling about Christians is still prevalent in the country and in the world so while much of the oppression is over at the end of the story, the climate is still not good for Christians.

    I was impressed by how this was all presented and it looks like a legitimate prediction for the future for Christians if the current climate continues.  It would do us all a service if we were to read and heed and start praying now.   The people in this story are the approximate ages my grandchildren and great grandchild will be at that time.  I loved the author’s handling of the real internal conflicts and musings of the characters and the accurate portrayal of Christian thought and feelings.  I would definitely read another book or series by this author and look forward to any new books she comes out with in the future.

    I received a complimentary copy of these books and a positive review is not required.
