Book Review: Blessed Child

I love Ted Dekker. So when the opportunity came up to review a book of his that I had not previously read, I jumped on it!

"Blessed Child" is one of Ted's earlier works and is a collaboration with the late Bill Bright, founder of Campus Crusade. The story revolves around the young boy, Caleb, who flees from Ethiopia with Jason and Leiah. But all is not as it seems...especially not when it comes to Caleb. The whirlwind of intrigue and mystery that begins to surround the trio attracts more attention than they bargained for...and could prove deadly.

I loved the pace of the novel as it pulled me in and didn't really slow down until near the end. The break is strategic as it gives the reader a breather before launching into the intense, roller coaster ending! While it is part of a set of two books (the sequel is "A Man Called Blessed"), I did feel like this worked as a standalone novel as well. Overall, I really enjoyed this book.

Rating: 4/5 stars
