Review: The Girl Behind the Red Rope by Ted Dekker & Rachelle Dekker


About the book:
Ten years ago, Grace saw something that would forever change the course of history.

When a terrible scourge is unleashed on the world, she and others from their religious community are already hidden deep in the hills of Tennessee, abiding by every rule that will keep them safe, pure--and alive. As long as they stay there, behind the red rope.

Her older brother's questions and the arrival of the first outsiders she's seen in a decade set in motion events that will cause Grace to question everything she has built her life on. Enemies rise on all sides--but who is the real enemy? And what will it cost her to uncover the truth?

For the first time, bestselling authors Ted Dekker and Rachelle Dekker team up and deliver an intense, tightly focused ride through the most treacherous world of all.

My thoughts:



The Girl Behind the Red Rope was a bit of a disappointment for me. I've read most of Ted Dekker's previous stories and loved many of them; unfortunately, this one just wasn't for me.

Even though I wasn't a fan of the story overall, there were things I enjoyed. I found the MC to be a likable character and I loved how heroic she was at times (I won't say how, since that would be a spoiler). I also liked the writing style - it was easy to read and held my attention.

I didn't like the supernatural elements or the whole "cult" part of the story. It was just too weird for me and I felt uncomfortable at times.

All in all, The Girl Behind the Red Rope wasn't for me.
