Anita Greene's magnificent novel, “Out of the Wilderness,” is an inspirational roamnce centered around suspense and drama. The story has many riveting twists that will keep you in such suspense that you will not want to put the book down until the issue resolves.
The leading male figure is named Grayson Kerr. He is learning how to balance his faith as a new Christian and his expert skills as a seasoned warrior trying to gain a position at SeaMount, a high-level international security agency.
Ms. Greene portrays Gray as a powerful, intelligent man who has committed his masculine strength and skills to God's causes. This is a refreshing contrast to the popular sitcom's that frequently depict men as wimpy, inept cowards. Gray can be perceived as a compilation of many real-life heroes.
Gray's trial survival mission for SeaMount is diverted when he discovers a woman, Sophie Moore, and her three daughters in their van which had run out of gas in a secluded wilderness area.
Over the course of several days, Gray leads the family through dangerous wilderness terrain. Greene injects military and survival terms that add to the ambiance of the story, but not so often that these terms distract someone who is a novice in these subjects.
Ms. Greene also gives Sophie a strong character. She is an intelligent, capable, beautiful, feminine, maternal woman, and is a widow who is struggling through a season of serious trials. Sophie had hoped to spend a special weekend with her daughters at a lodge before she faced a court date with her late husband's parents who are trying to gain legal custody of her children.
“Out of the Wilderness” deals will several of the most painful trials in life: the death of a beloved husband; the threat of having your children taken away; disapproving in-laws; betrayal of trust; allowing yourself to be vulnerable and humble enough to trust experienced others when you are out of your area of expertise; allowing yourself to fall-in-love for a second time; and learning to hear, trust, and follow the Holy Spirit through it all.
“Out of the Wilderness” is written so well that by its end you may feel personally invested in the lives of the characters. Yes, they are fictitious, but the characters, subjects, feelings, faith, and especially the ending will deeply touch your heart!
