Product Description

The Imperial Army is moving across New Guinea. Tyler and Justine have managed to evade them, but they fear it isn't because of their own abilities.

Tyler wonders why the Japanese haven't taken them as prisoners. Is it to find the Sandpiper? Or the Nandus? Without a radio they can't reach the ship or let them know where they are. Meanwhile, the Japanese have been moving them like pawns, killing off members of the team as they go.

Justine leads them to a place of safety until they hopefully raise the ship, but how long can they fend off the enemy once they attack? They've yet to get off the island, and there is still an ocean to cross to reach the safety of home. Justine fears someone else will die before they can escape and she's just as certain it will be her.

Excerpt

Tyler frowned and turned to watch the waves when she mentioned God.

"You can't run from Him forever."

His gaze flew to hers. "What are you saying?"

"That you're running... from God." Her gaze was thoughtful. "I'm not telling you anything you don't already know. I've seen you battling Him."

He opened his mouth. She waited for him to deny it, but he said nothing. She was right. He was battling God, and she doubted the war would end anytime soon.

"I have a hard time trusting someone or something that allows men to go through so much turmoil. Mercy lady, you of all people know what I'm talking about. Look what he put you through."

"I know what you're saying, but I see this differently. You see what He put me through... I see what He's gotten me through. What I went through was because of men, and their desires. The only reason I'm alive today is because God was with me."

Tyler folded his arms high on his chest.

She smiled. "If you think about it, you'd see that's the only reason you're here. God has a plan for you."

He snorted. "He's one rotten planner."

"It might seem that way, but the truth is, He's the only reason we get through things. He loves us. He loves you," she clarified. "You're just too stubborn to see it."

Chin jutting, Tyler studied the night, trying to ignore her. But she knew she'd hit a nerve.

 After he'd fumed over it for a time, he argued the point. "How can you say God loves me? You don't know what my life has been like."

"No, I don't."

"So how can you say he's been there for me?"

"Because I know without a doubt, He's been there waiting for you to trust Him."

"That doesn't tell me how you know."

She shrugged, and inhaled a bit of the moist night air. "I know because of how He waited for me. I know because He promised to be there for anyone that would call on His name.”

Tyler stabbed a laugh. "Yeah, sure, just call on His name. Do you know how many times I prayed and asked Him to help me? Lots of times. And He didn't come. Honestly, I didn't expect Him to."

"How do you know He didn't?" Justine asked softly.

"I don't care to go into details, but He didn't. He just didn't. I had to take care of myself. I got myself where I am." He tapped his chest. "No one takes care of me, but me."
