"With historical mysteries, religious intrigue, and political danger, Promised Land asks one momentous question: what if your calling puts you-and your family-in the crosshairs? Despite their Israeli citizenship, Hana and Daud cannot safely return to their homeland because a dangerous terrorist ring is threatening Daud. Hana is perfectly fine remaining in the United States, working for a law firm in Atlanta, especially when she learns she's pregnant. But Daud can't shake the draw to return home to Israel, even if it makes him a walking target. Hana is helping her boss plan a huge Middle East summit in Atlanta when Jakob Brodsky, her old friend and former co-litigator, asks for her help with a current case. His client is attempting to recover ancient artifacts stolen from his Jewish great-grandfather by a Soviet colonel at the end of World War II. Because the case crosses several national borders, he knows he needs Hana's knowledge and skill to get to the bottom of what happened to these precious artifacts. Meanwhile, Daud is called in to help a US intelligence agency extract a Ukrainian doctor from a dangerous situation in Egypt. While overseas, he can't resist the call of Jerusalem and thus sets off a series of events that puts thousands of people in danger, including his wife and unborn child. Bestselling author Robert Whitlow explores the meaning of family and home-and how faith forms the identity of both-in this breathtaking follow-up to Chosen People"--… (más)

I had read the first book The Chosen People and looked forward to reading the sequel. Book, one had readers get to know the main characters before their paths crossed, it took readers through Israel, went into the drama Hana and Daud went through when they first met and started working together. The story was fast paced and suspenseful.as their travels took them back and forth from the Promised Land and the US.

This story picks up with Hana Abbound Hasan who is a strong, smart, vulnerable and caring woman of faith. She seeks God’s guidance through prayer in a natural way. Her husband Daud Hasan, is a hard-working detective, who seeks a relationship with God in his own way. The couple are Israeli citizens living in the USA, where Hana works for a law firm in Atlanta. They both feel the need to settle down with a baby on the way, it’s not easy for them to find a place they can call home. There are so many forces against them.

This novel has a little bit less suspense and drama but it’s rich in history of Israel, having readers take in the sites, customs and food. It’s a satisfying conclusion to the first novel.

This was another outstanding read. I read Chosen People last year sometime, and was struck by the setting—very, very rarely have I ever read a book set in Israel and hardly ever (never?) a contemporary fiction at that. Whitlow changed that for me, though, in both of these books—he brought that place, its people, customs, and some ways of thought—to life in a way that felt very realistic without having a touch of info-dumping or information not relevant to the story.

One thing I especially enjoyed in Promised Land was the faith element. I remember noticing it in the previous book as well, but watching Hana go about her daily life, intentionally taking time to serve the Lord, was inspiring to me. I long for a deeper, closer relationship with Him, and though she is a fictitious character, I think all of us can learn from her example. She isn’t so much a vocal person about her faith, but her devotional life is rich—and I so enjoyed watching that element in here. It’s a part I don’t see very often in other Christian fiction.

Besides the faith and setting sides, I loved the mysteries here. I also loved that though you are told what the bad guys are planning to do, you are still totally invested in the story because you want to see just how their plans work out. That’s good storytelling!

I’m not sure there was anything about Promised Land that I didn’t enjoy. I don’t think it was quite as gripping as the previous one in the series, but I was fine with that—not every book must be a thriller. Some people might not find this sequel quite as good as the previous book, but to me, it was perfect—just different. If you enjoyed meeting Hana and her family in the last story, I’d recommend this one. It’s a great read.

I requested a free review copy of this book, and this is my honest opinion of it. ( )

Promised Land is the second book in the legal thriller series, Chosen People, by Robert Whitlow. Having enjoyed reading this best-selling author's work for many years, I was looking forward to reading this newest release and was not disappointed. Even though Promised Land is second in a series, there is enough background given throughout the book that it can easily be read as a stand-alone story. Readers find Daud and Hana, Israeli Arabs, are now living in the United States and are working through their life as newlyweds. This multifaceted story is well written as Whitlow is an expert in writing legal fiction with action, intrigue, and twists to the plot that increase the suspense and keep a reader's interest high. With descriptive prose regarding Middle Eastern culture, customs, and cuisine, the reader is easily transported into the scenes of the book. I enjoyed how Hana's faith in God is portrayed as a very personal and transformative belief in a God who cares about and guides His children. As she and Daud think about the future and where their 'promised land' might be, will she recognize that sometimes that promised land of peace is a place within and not one of geography? I thoroughly enjoyed the story of the characters in the book--friends, family, colleagues, and even Leon, the dog. I am hoping there is more to come in this series.
I received a complimentary copy of this book via CelebrateLit. A favorable review was not required, and the opinions are my own. This review is part of a CelebrateLit blog tour. ( )

If the subjects of family and/or home intrigue you, you should check out this book for yourself. Full of adventure and excitement, this book kept me reading. This book continues the storyline of the book Chosen People. The characters were well-developed, and the storyline moved at a good pace. Transitions from character storylines went well.

So check out this book for yourself. ( )
