My Ranking: 10 out of 10
Ages 14 & up
No Greater Love was a fantastic book that had the perfect amount of action and emotional pulls in it. I really loved this book. The characters were realistic, the plot exciting, and the lessons admirable. I was instantly hooked on this gripping book and had a hard time putting it down the night I started it. The message in this book was astounding and it actually reminded me a bit of The Martyr's Song by Ted Dekker in that area. :-)
There are only two things I need to point out in this book: The first is that there is a scene that takes place the morning after a wedding. It mentions the girl reaching for her clothes but the man(her husband) pulling her back to his chest and telling her "No clothes". There is also a scene where a woman is bathing in a river and some men are threatening her(unknown what the threats are). The men never see her out of the water, but a woman does and it says she was standing over her naked.
Other than that, there was nothing worth mentioning in it at all! There was some mild violence, but nothing so much that I would need to caution you.
All being said, it was a TERRIFIC book and I HIGHLY encourage you to read it. I have just started another book in the series, Red Ink, and am enjoying that one too, though not as much as No Greater Love. I loved learning about the time, the era of the African National Congress (ANC) movement against apartheid. I didn't know much about it and was quite intrigued by it. So, if you're looking for a heart-wrenching, adventerous, and historical story, this is a good book for you!
