Book Review-When Camels Fly-NLB Horton

Tuesday, May 13, 2014

This tour is being brought to you by Virtual Author Book Tours You can view the other bloggers on this tour there.

I'm finding it hard to write a review of this book without giving away the plot. Water has always been at the heart of the troubles in the Middle East and this book delves into what can happen when unscrupulous people take over.

The characters you will love; from the octogenarians to Mom who is hilarious. She is constantly talking to herself and heaven help anyone who even thinks about hurting her cubs!! Poor Mom (Grace is her name)-is finding out that everything she thought is not quite as she thought it was with her family. And she is a klutz! Amidst everything else she is hoping her daughter and son get married! There is a lot of trusting in G-D in this book (while helping him along a bit-well a lot) so anyone who like a bit of religion thrown in-you will enjoy this also.

Will the Mid East ever stop warring over water--WHEN CAMELS FLY!

This book can not be purchased quite yet--but soon! Keep your eyes out for it--you will enjoy!!

About the Book: (from Virtual Author Book Tours)

A mother’s fatal shot. A daughter’s deadly choice.

In Israel, archaeologist Grace Madison shoots her daughter’s abductor. Seconds later, a handsome shepherd drops from the sky to kill a second assassin. Their world changes in two blinks of an eye.

Unbeknownst to them, a fiercely ambitious evil is destroying everything in its path—the unconventional path Grace and Maggie take. They struggle to right a wrong as old as time, and discover time is running out in the race for their lives. Family and friends are swept into their vortex, extinguishing old flames while igniting new loves.

While the scale tips dangerously toward disaster, millions of lives hang in the balance. And the mother-and-daughter team soon realizes nothing is as it seems. Even each other.

Because choosing what’s right is all that’s left.
