Book Review- The Return of Cassandra Todd

The great outdoors a place of tranquility, serenity, and comfort suddenly becomes the backdrop to one of the most action filled riveting tales of the day. Using their environment as a cover up Cassandra, her son, and Turner flee from their tormenting pasts. This is no child's game of hide-and-seek but rather survival of the fittest. It takes all of Turner's boy-scout skills and what little faith he has in God to keep them alive.

This novel presented many valuable lessons. Whether it was basic first aid knowledge or the profound revelation that God is in control, it allowed the reader to be fed intellectually and spiritually. The realization of God’s sovereignty and omniscience was the poignant lesson for this reader.

Having read both novels, Nelson’s literary progress is evident. Whereas his debut was a romantic historical, this one is a suspenseful contemporary. The story was a worthwhile read because of its unique plot, edge of your seat suspense, and many spiritual and intellectual lessons. If you enjoy these three factors in a book you are sure to enjoy The Return of Cassandra Todd.

I received this book for free from Glass Roads in exchange for this independent and unbiased review.
