{{Book Review}} The Ancient World Series: Book 1 | Where Can I Flee?


 The Ancient World Series: Book 1 | Where Can I Flee?

War is on the horizon during the spring of 1861. It will be an event that will change the lives of everyone in its path. The Harper family included. 

Frank Harper is a young man full of dreams and ambitions. Even when the country is split and war breaks out, Frank will do whatever is necessary to see his dreams come true, even when that means putting on a uniform and leaving home. 

For the first time, Claire Harper is forced to consider the reasons behind such a conflict. Should slavery be abolished? Which side should she be on, and what does God have to say about this? Claire is torn between her own opinions and those of her family. The struggle within her only increases when she repeatedly runs into a kind and handsome Union soldier. She longs to see her brother turn to Christ before it is too late. Desperate to reach her brother with the gospel, Claire pens a series of inspiring letters. Will she be able to handle all the obstacles of war and continue to be a witness to those around her? 

How long can Claire last when her heart is torn in half and she is burdened for her brother's soul? How long can Frank resist his sister's urgent pleas or the gentle tugging from within? Can a man outrun a holy God? 

*My Review*
"Where Can I Flee" is the first book in the "Ancient Worlds" series & the first book I have read by A.M. Heath. This book is full of everything needed to make a  wonderful story. The characters are true to the historical time period so much that you are drawn into the Civil War era.

I esp love how A.M. Heath uses this story to present the gospel of Christ Jesus.  I recommend this book to anyone looking to read a wholesome book.

If you would like to purchase the book, you can do so by going
