Book Recommendation: Desert Fire

Synopsis: "On assignment in Darfur, journalist Julia Keegan is determined to open the eyes of average Americans to the atrocities taking place there--and to distance herself from the dark shadow cast by her father, a man she's never really known. So when Joel Maartens, her father's young lawyer, shows up in Sudan, Julia is completely unprepared to respond. She has steeled herself against the horrors of genocide, but she isn't prepared to face her own past.

As Joel's and Julia's lives are redefined by injustice and violence around them, both are forced to face truths they would rather leave concealed. Fighting for justice is no easy task, but learning to forgive in the face of hatred may be the resolution that Joel and Julia both desperately need."

Desert Fire is a brand new compelling novel written to challenge, inform, and ultimately lead us to action, with regard to social events taking place outside of North America.

Much much more than an entertaining read-- this is a novel that may completely transform your perspectives and leave you with no other option than to view the world through different, informed, eyes: you can no longer sit back and do nothing.
