A young girl Lizzie James has been taken from her mother and young brother by her own father who runs a sex trafficking ring on the island of Belize. Told that her mother and brother have drown, Lizzie is now known as Eliza Lawrence. While she remains untouched and dubbed as the princess, Eliza sees and hears unthinkable things within the Palace walls. Her father has plans for her twentieth birthday, plans for her to marry a young man whose father runs a drug smuggling business in the states.
Jack Ryder, FBI agent, has taken on many undercover missions in his career and he is about to take on a dangerous one in Belize to stop human trafficking of young girls. His job is to get inside as the man Eliza is being forced to marry and to convince her to help take her father down and free the young girls and herself. Jack 's family vacationed in Belize many times and the last time he was there, he saved a young girl 's life and also lost his best friend. He knew to keep himself focused on the job and not to let those memories resurface.
The connection is instant between Jack and Eliza. The success of the mission has to be flawless. Will Eliza fully trust Jack? She trusts no men. Can Jack convince Eliza to believe him when he assures her he is there to save her and the other girls?
Their story doesn't end after the mission. Eliza is determined to stop sex trafficking from happening to other young girls and boys and Jack is willing to help her cause. She joins the FBI and the two work together undercover. Conversations between the two of them, lead Jack to remember that little girl he saved so many years ago. Could Eliza be that girl? Are feelings between the two of them becoming more than friendship?
I found myself praying for the characters of A DISTANT SHORE. Karen Kingsbury has a way of taking her readers deep within the pages of her books and this book was no exception. Jack and Eliza's story is such a emotional read and yet so full of hope. Two people who have lost so much, but are given second chances at redemption and to find love. A DISTANT SHORE is definitely a page turner, once you start you won't stop until you're finished. Scripture at the start of each chapter filled my heart, such a beautiful touch.
A DISTANT SHORE is a heartbreaking story, but so much promise is found within the pages....Highly recommend. And as always, have tissues.
