Review: The Earth is Full by B.D. Riehl

I read this book back in 2014 and somehow missed posting my review here. I hope you find this "old" review helpful. :)




About the book:
Suchin is a young Thai girl and a victim of human trafficking in the city of Pattaya, Thailand. She is trapped in a dark world of corruption and perversity with little hope of ever escaping her captivity.
Lydia is a pretty and privileged eighteen-year-old American girl, with a hard heart and a cynical attitude toward her life and others. She has kept her deepest secrets private, and is on a downward spiral of resistance and rebellion.
Charlotte is a middle class stay-at-home mom and housewife who is living the life she desires. However, she often finds herself consumed by her discontentment and overwhelmed by the mundane routine of her life and her feelings of inadequacy.

Three aching souls are brought together from across the globe as a result of an unexpected mission. Despite threats of corruption and potential violent retaliation, one organization risks everything to show God’s love to the most barren and bleak corners of the world and to prove that, despite the extreme oppression and injustice in the world, the Earth is full of God’s unfailing love. Will these women’s hearts be shrouded in darkness forever, or can God’s light, which cancels out all darkness, transform their lives as they become Children of Deliverance?

The Earth Is Full is a story of hope, rescue, and redemption that will touch your heart and soul.

My thoughts:

The Earth Is Full was a book with a good story and message! The writing style wasn't my cup of tea - sometimes is felt like we were told things that had happened instead of experiencing it first-hand in the story (if that makes sense). There were also a couple of things in the book that I didn't personally care for (e.g. the visions and things like that).

The characters were great and I feel that most women can relate, at least in some ways, with them. The Earth Is Full also gives a vivid glimpse into the sex trade and sex trafficking - there are several heart-wrenching scenes.

Overall, The Earth Is Full was a nice book and I enjoyed it, for the most part. I recommend it to mature readers that enjoy these types of novels.
