Book Review: "Taken" (Dee Henderson)

What if you knew that the life you were living was not the one you were meant to live? That you were somehow trapped in a world that wasn't yours, where you didn't belong?

How would you survive?

And more importantly, what would you do if you discovered an opportunity to escape?

Author Dee Henderson presents Taken, an exquisitely written work of Christian romantic suspense.

As a long-time fan of Henderson's books and a close follower of her publications, I will admit to feeling thrilled to get my hands on a copy of this, her newest novel. It pleases me to no end to report that I was not disappointed by the tale she has woven.

As in the majority of her books, Henderson doesn't shy away from incorporating her Christian faith, making it a seamless but integral part of the whole, right alongside her exploration of themes like family, loss, new beginnings, reconciliation, restoration, love, and learning to trust again.

You'll meet Shannon, who has recently escaped from a known crime syndicate headed by a notorious family whose members abducted her when she was a teenager, and Matthew, former-cop-turned-private investigator, whose own hideous experience with an abduction case was cloyingly personal and made him a natural choice for help when Shannon needed it the most.

And while the novel is more along the lines of an exploration of character and the rebuilding of a life than typical thriller/suspense elements like car chases and gunfights, I have no doubt that readers from all walks and backgrounds will appreciate the depths with which Henderson masterfully imbues her writing. Taken is a novel not to be missed.
