The Letter Keeper by Charles Martin is book two in the A Murphey Shepherd Novel. When I requested this book, I was not aware this was a book in a series and had no problem following the story. The author does a wonderful job of filling in background information to keep the story moving along and easy to follow. This is a fast-paced, action filled suspenseful story. This story focuses on the topic of human trafficking and the struggles those who are rescued have to work through.
With this story we catch up with Murphy as he is finishing high school and follow him through making a career choice that saves so many young people but costs him so much. This story is full of emotional and physical hurt that is not always easy to read but it is also a story that is hard to put down. I was totally surprised with the ending of the story and hope the author has another story to follow.
I received a complimentary copy of this story from Thomas Nelson Publishers through NetGalley, this is my honest review.
