I recently finished “The Witness” by Dee Henderson, and enjoyed it a lot. I can’t tell you how much pleasure it was to read about characters that treat each other with respect, look out for each other unselfishly and sacrificially, then go to the Lord in prayer before making major decisions.
In this book, the police chief gets involved in a woman’s life who is on the run, who’s been in hiding to protect her family from the evil ones from New York. When circumstances change so that hiding actually puts her family in more danger than herself, the plot twists, and the police chief is there to help unravel things and protect her.
What I like about the book is that there’s no gratuitous sex, the characters date each other respectfully where holding each other’s hand is a romantic affection. There’s no salty language, either. Perhaps because I haven’t read Dee Henderson’s works before, though, I felt the relationships blended too well together. 6 people, 3 couples. 3 men who work together, 3 sisters. It didn’t seem realistic. And the ending left something to be desired – either a completely happy ending, or at least more detail on how Christians handle tragedy.
I still enjoyed the book tremendously, though, and can recommend it heartily.
