Lost sheep

The house at the end of Michelle Griep's bog is an absolutely wonderful Christian historical adventure that I simply could not lay down. It was an exciting read.

The novel takes place in Dartmoor in Lydford and Bath. I reveled in these places because I know them all. Dartmoor Prison is a suspicious place that rises from the bog – my father drove us past it when we were at Lydford Gorge in the fall of 1980. I have visited Bath several times over the years. My familiarity with the landscape helped to bring the novel to life.

The main themes are the restoration and the presence of God. "I would never have survived … without God." Sometimes life is very bleak, but without God it is worse. If we know God, we can hope for the future.

In the restoration of the years, the locusts have made connections to the topic of the return of the lost children. Like the prodigal son, we may fear our welcome, but there is much joy.

It is never advisable to believe that we know what others think or why they act in a certain way. The novel shows that the actions and motivations of others can be misinterpreted.

We cannot earn God's grace. It is a free gift. There is a character trying to earn his way to heaven to atone for past actions. Nobody can ever work their way up to heaven. We would never be "good enough", instead we have to accept the free gift of grace.

Treasures of this world captivate us. "Included in the chains of status and wealth." The love of money is at the root of all evil. Money doesn't have to be a prison if we use it wisely and remember that we are God's managers of our money. This figurative prison that we built ourselves reflects the actual Dartmoor prison.

Michelle Griep has created a wonderful set of characters that have caused various emotional reactions from me. I loved the main characters and "lived" the novel through their eyes.

Michelle Griep is a new author for me, but I will surely look for more of her books.

I got this book for free. A positive rating was not required and all views expressed are my own.

What comes to mind when you hear the word moor? For some, pictures of Jane Eyre come to life. For others, the Baskervilles dog starts barking. But for most, it's a thick goose egg. The fact is that most Americans have no idea what a bog is, but don't be afraid, my friend … after reading the next few paragraphs, you will never be empty again when you hear the word bog.

Last summer I jumped across the pond and trudged through Dartmoor with my daughter and husband. What a great experience. I learned firsthand how windy this huge piece of land can be, because that's exactly what is a bog in my heart: a huge piece of land. Webster defines it as an area of ​​open, barren land. Sounds pretty bleak, doesn't it? Yes. It's kind of like that. But it's so much more.

There is a lot of green in spring and summer. Gorse bushes. Scrubby grasses. Lambs and sheep and goats. All of these animals roam freely, so that paths are carried in the dirt that you can walk on. But I hear you … where could you go if nothing but a few farm animals roams around?

You could hike to a gate that is a "high, rugged hill". Some of them can be a little tricky to climb, but sweet grace, what a view! The earth stretches like a green-brown blanket. When I hiked that spring last day, the whisper in the wind inspired me to wonder about many what-ifs, and these what-ifs came together in a story of intrigue and betrayal.

What would you do if you found a half-dead man bleeding in the middle of nowhere? Find out what heroine Maggie Lee is doing The house at the end of the bog.
