By now you should know that I love to read and I've read my share of biographies, autobiographies and memoirs. Each and every one of them are special in their own way; however, there are some that rise up above the rest. "Evidence Not Seen" by Darlene Deibler Rose is a book which stands out for me.
I read the book almost 9 years ago and I still can remember parts of it vividly. Darlene's memoir focuses on her experiences as a young wife going to New Guinea and subsequently being interned for four years in a prisoner of war camp.
Darlene has a magnificent way of keeping the reader right there with her as she is pulled away from her husband and thrown into captivity. After being falsely accused of a crime, she suffers untold horrors and yet the hope never dies in her heart. It is uplifting to see how the human spirit can overcome even the most difficult of circumstances knowing that God is there in the midst of them.
If you want to read a book which you won't be able to put down, this is definitely the book for you! I will leave you with a brief excerpt from the book...just something to tease your reading taste buds...
