Against the Tide
By Elizabeth Camden
I really enjoyed reading this book about fighting the opium trade in the late 1800s. I had no idea the use of opium was so widespread and generally accepted as medicine even for babies! The characters are well developed and the story was so compelling I had a hard time putting the book down. The further I read, the more I wanted to read. I appreciated Lydia’s struggle to realize there was a God who cared about her. I liked the way the author portrayed a complete life-change for Alexander Banebridge when he gave his life to Christ. I’m glad Ms. Camden portrayed two types of salvation experiences in her great story. I’ll be looking for more books by this author! Overall, I give this book an A – a great read!
I received a free copy of this book from Bethany House in exchange for my honest review.
