About the Book
Ten years ago, Grace saw something that would forever change the course of history. When evil in its purest form is unleashed on the world, she and others from their religious community are already hidden deep in the hills of Tennessee, abiding by every rule that will keep them safe, pure–and alive. As long as they stay there, behind the red perimeter.
Her older brother’s questions and the arrival of the first outsiders she’s seen in a decade set in motion events that will question everything Grace has built her life on. Enemies rise on all sides–but who is the real enemy? And what will it cost her to uncover the truth?
For the first time, bestselling authors Ted Dekker and Rachelle Dekker team up and deliver an intense, tightly focused ride through the most treacherous world of all.
In My Opinion
The first time I saw this intriguing book cover with the names Ted and Rachelle Dekker printed on it, it went on my TBR list. While this read hits on spiritual truths and the spiritual realm, The Girl Behind the Red Rope didn’t quite live up to my expectations.
The plat was fairly predictable with the characters fitting neatly into their roles to reach the conclusion clearly laid out. I expected at least a couple of gotcha moments from Ted Dekker but they never happened.
However, the book is well written and takes a hard look at where people find their security? Have we become so comfortable and secure in our current situation, we fear stepping out in faith to discover what God may have waiting for us beyond that?
If you’ve not read anything from either of the Dekkers, this is a good place to start as it will give new readers a taste of this father/daughter team.
