In,In The Light of Love we're introduced Talisa London, who
is about to lead a college youth ministry to Uganda on a mission
for eight weeks.
Dr.Jericho Becton is a young surgeon head to war torn Uganda for
a year to donate his medical services at an orphanage run by a
friend. But first he's been 'volunteered' to participate in a
charity bachelor auction his mother's women's group is hosting.
Talisa's three best friends take her to the same bachelor auction
to celebrate her twenty-fifth birthday. When she and Jericho lock
eyes from across the room there is and instant attraction and
something very familiar to each of them about the other. At the
urging of her friends she decides to bid on the good doctor...
(you'll have to buy the book to find out how their evening turns out)
When next they meet it's in Uganda and the attraction is stronger
then ever. Working tirelessly side by side amidst war,
death and devastation, their love blossoms. But when one of their
lives hangs in the balance can their love sustain them?
Author Deborah Fletcher Mello is known for her wonderful romance
novels and she doesn't disappoint us with Talisa and Jericho's
story but there's so much more to this book. Through the author's
words we're given a brief glimpse of the crisis and suffering in
war torn northern Uganda and Darfur, Sudan.
Mrs.Fletcher Mello will be donating 50% of all royalties
she earns between February 1, 2007 and June 30, 2007 from
the sales of IN THE LIGHT OF LOVE to World Vision to be used
toward food and supplies to aid the women and children
suffering in Darfur, Sudan. So by purchasing this book you too
will be helping aid those in need.
I enjoyed this book and the secondary characters. I hope the
author is considering giving each of Talisa's girlfriends their
