Saving Sophie

Saving Sophie is the powerful story of the lengths a father will go through to protect his daughter.   It is an action-packed thriller that will take you on an unforgettable journey of murder and deception, testing the bonds of family and love.   Jack Sommers was just an ordinary accountant from Chicago,  that is,  until his wife passed away.   His young daughter was kidnapped.    He became the main suspect in an $88 million dollar embezzlement case.   Now Jack is on the run, hoping to avoid the feds long enough to rescue his daughter, Sophie, from her maternal grandfather, a suspected terrorist in Palestine.

With the help of investigative team Liam and Catherine, and a new CIA operative, a secret mission is launched to not only rescue Sophie, but also to thwart a major terrorist attack in Hebron.   Will  being caught in the crossfires of the Palestine-Israeli conflict keep their team from accomplishing the task at hand,  or can they overcome the odds and save countless lives,  including their own?

Readers will also admire the scenes between the doctor and his granddaughter, with their complicated emotions and unresolvable conflict. The meetings of the Sons of Canaan are drawn deftly, the group’s members humanized and individualized. But best of all may be the exchanges that convey the growing relationship between Jack and Marcy, filled with desperation, romance, and moral reverberations concerning responsibility and guilt.

With its well-handled,  vividly painted settings in and around Jerusalem and Hebron, Hawaii, and Chicago, Saving Sophie will keep readers engaged from beginning to end.   Will keep them educated, too.   It is generously stocked with supplementary materials for reading groups.
