I received Freedom’s Stand by J.M. (Jeanette) Windle and realized it was a sequel so I quickly ordered Veiled Freedom and read it first. I was not disappointed in either book and will say the author had thoroughly researched her subject. Jeanette brought the characters alive and you experienced their courage, sacrifice, and determination. 

The heroine in the books Amy Mallory was an experienced albeit a naive aid worker that went with a heart to help the people. She quickly found that the freedom touted on the news was not what was actually there.Steve Wilson or Willie was a Special Ops that helped liberate Afghanistan and was disillusioned so goes into the private security sector.  And Jamil is an Afghan refugee that Amy hires as her driver at the center she works for.  The three lives become entwined as they all search for answers, for freedom and truth.  

The book is suspenseful and weaves a story of intrigue, love and hope.  It is a story of the search for the only real freedom. The hope that the love of Isa Masih is what brings freedom.   
These two books helped me understand more fully some of the questions I was having about what had and was happening n Afghanistan.

I received this book complimentary for a unbiased review from Tyndale House Publishers.
