    *Starred Review* Fear is the crux of safety and understanding in the confines of Haven Valley's fragile religious ecosystem where chosen believers await salvation from the impending destruction of the world. But whispers of doubt begin to unravel Grace Weather's loyalties, desires, and beliefs. When a stranger arrives at the secluded community, and a boy's safety is entrusted to Grace, it will take every strength she has for her to navigate a world in which she is now clueless as to whom or what to trust or believe. The further she gets from what she thought she understood, the more she wonders if she is devolving into madness or escaping from it. In this mind-bending inspirational thriller, father-daughter writing team Ted Dekker and Rachelle Dekker triumph in their faultlessly structured and deconstructed world of religious extremism. They expose the intensely chaotic uncertainty on which Haven Valley relies and consider themes of fear and freedom, wisdom and captivity with provoking theological questions. The powerful metaphors woven into this eerie tale are meant to be savored, but the book's suspenseful plot drives the story forward at a racing pace, making this a riveting novel that will long haunt readers.
