Pump Your Book Virtual Tour Presents: The Deliverer by Kathi Macias

The Deliverer picks up just months after Special Delivery leaves off, continuing with the stories of Mara, freed from slavery but still struggling with scars and memories from the past; Jonathan, attending Bible college but strongly drawn to Mara, despite her past; and Lawan, having escaped the brothel in Thailand and miraculously reunited with her younger sister in the US and adopted by the same family. Will Mara be able to move past the pain and hatred that bind her, even if it means traveling back to the place where her parents betrayed her and sold her into sexual slavery? Will she allow The Deliverer to set her free—once and for all?

My Review:


I just finished reading this, the last book in the Freedom Series, and in some ways hate to say goodbye to a lot of these characters I have grown to love. This is a wrap up of the first two books.
I would recommend that you read the first two books to really appreciate this hard subject of sex slavery of young girls...some as young as 5 and 6.
We rejoin Mara, she is now saving her money to go to Junior College, and working at the restaurant. She was rescued by the help of Jonathan Flannery, the young man, who was delivery pizza and helped in her rescue. Jonathan and his sister Leah are both now in college. Leah's friend Sarah, who has a big crush on Jonathan, has decided to spend Thanksgiving with the Flannery's instead of her own family. That way she will be closer to Jonathan
. We also travel with Lewan as she comes to the US, and her new family. What a heart breaking life this poor dear girl has had. You really feel yourself pulling for her as she is reunited with her sister Anna, and meeting her new family.
Some have already accepted the Lord as their Savior, and others are struggling with all that has happened to them. They are unable to forgive, and receive forgiveness. Don't miss this heartwarming ending to this eye opening series!

I received this book from the Publisher New Hope, and was not required to give a positive review.
