What would you sacrifice for someone you love?
Active members of the LDS Church, Michael Sutton and his parents have been troubled for years by the rebellion of his younger brother, Taylor. But when Taylor’s Army Ranger team disappears during a secret mission in Pakistan’s volatile Northern Territory, the Suttons must face the horrors of regret and helplessness.
Officially, the Rangers are declared missing in action, but army intelligence points to a hostile capture and execution. Then Michael receives a phone call from Taylor, pleading for help. The military insists the corporal’s voice was faked, but Michael is convinced his brother is alive and moves forward with a plan to rescue him. When he arrives in Pakistan, Michael unknowingly becomes ensnared in the dark plots of power-hungry men. What happens next is a moving story of bravery, loyalty, and forgiveness.
Loved all the twist and turns and the for going family struggles that we all face in different ways and what we would do in similar situations. Obviously it is a book that sucks you in and you can't wait to get to the next chapter to see where it leads next. Great read enjoyed it cover to cover.
Amazing from start to finish!!! The research done behind this well known story of a long lost brother, takes the meaning of being sucked into a story to a whole new level! As I read, I felt as if I were there with the Suttons in Utah and then again in Afghanistan. There is just enough detail throughout this story to start the images rolling, and then leaves enough space to let the reader's imagination take over. Coupled with the emotions felt with the family waiting anxiously at home to the anxiety felt on the battle front, this book is hard to put down. For a very new take on this well known story of the prodigal son, I would definitely find a day to sit down and read, because once it is opened it is very hard to set down. Well done
I don’t know anyone who hasn’t at some time and on some level felt betrayed. And I don’t know anyone who, at some point hasn’t longed to be forgiven. In Kristoffer Neff’s new military suspense novel, Home of the Brave, he takes these two very universal conditions and allows them to play out—and what we see is a powerful show of bravery and forgiveness that will keep you reading into the wee hours of the morning.
The Sutton family is no different than the rest of us, yet when a midnight call from their son Taylor comes, pleading for help for himself and his Army Ranger Team, his brother Michael comes to the rescue—a journey that leads Michael to the violent Northern Territory of Pakistan.
Well researched, with believable characters that take you with them to the brutal confines of a military prison, the lonely office of a traitor and the kitchen table, where worried family wait and pray, Home of the Brave is a moving Prodigal Son story…and so much more. I highly recommend it; though carve out some reading time because you won’t want to put it down.
This book was SO GOOD on SO MANY LEVELS!
You have this team that has been captured and all that they are enduring--you will be amazed at who is responsible for that.
You have the love of family and the pulling of emotions knowing that if Michael goes to get his brother he might not come back to his wife and daughter
And then you have the parents who are now worrying for both of their sons.
You have a side story of a girl who has also been captured--wait until you read about that--so intriguing!
I LOVED all the twists and turns in the plot--
Grab a copy and see how it all plays out :)
