From the back cover:

Two continents, Two cultures. Two souls seek hope and a future.

On the shores of Lake Michigan, Rebecca Meyer seeks escape. Guilt-ridden over her little sister’s death, she sets her heart on India, a symbol of peace.

Across the ocean in South India, Sagai Raj leaves his tranquil hill station home and impoverished family to answer a higher calling. Pushing through diverse cultrual and religious milieus, he labors toward his goals, while wrong turns and bad choices block Rebecca from hers.Watch Full Movie Online Streaming Online and Download

Traveling similar pahs and bridged across oceans through a priest, the two desire peace and their divine destiny. But vows and blind obedience at all costs must be weighed…and buried memories, unearthed.

Crooked Lines, a beautifully crafted debut novel, threads the lives of two determined souls from different continents and cultures. Compelling characters struggle with spirituality through despair and deceptions in search of truth.

My take:

The parallel stories of Sagai and Rebecca are absolutely heart wrenching! I kept reading and reading – you become engrossed in the story. This isn’t a love story, or at least isn’t your typical love story yet. The paths the characters face is astonishing! The ending is so touching and unexpected… This book is an absolute delight and isn’t a bit like any other book you’ve read.

Wow! I can honestly say, I don’t think I’ve ever read a book quite like this…Her writing is unique and I can’t put my finger on it exactly what it is that means so much to me in regards to her writing. It was an amazing read!!!! I can’t wait to read more of Holly Michael’s work.

* I recieved a copy of Crooked Lines from Holly Michael for review purposes as part of the Christian EVALUators group. I was not required to provide a positive review. All opinions are my own.
