Side by Side by Jana Kelley was a very unique book. I have never read a book like this one before and I have to say that I think more people should write books like this one. I didn’t want this book to end because it was so interesting watching the characters grow and learn about other people and their personal beliefs. I love how this book was inspired by things that the author went through so that always makes the book seem more real or at least it does to me. This was a great book and I was sad when it came to the end of the book. I would recommend this book to everyone who is looking for an interesting book or a unique idea because this was both of those things.
About The Book
Side by Side (New Hope Publishers, April 2015)
In the dusty, Islamic country of Sudan, Mia’s life collides with that of another young woman.
A young Christian American mother, Mia finds more than one dark secret on the streets of Khartoum. She finds Halimah, a young, upper-class Arab student with a bright future in her family’s business whose risky and secretive decision has put her life in danger. What happens when the path of young mother intersects with that of a spunky Sudanese student? God transforms them both . . . forever.
Part of New Hope® Publishers’ contemporary missional fiction line, Side by Side opens the reader’s eyes to the life of Muslims in Sudan as well as 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 pray for the salvation of those who persecute.
