If I could live in any world, it would be the world of the Flannery family. Unafraid for themselves, they find their lives thrust into the dark world of the sex trade. But more than the Flannery clan, I'd love to live like Barbara an older woman immersed in liberating those caught in slavery. The Flannerys work because of circumstance, Barbara from conviction.
Special Delivery is the second book of the "Freedom Series." Here we meet old friends: Mara, a redeemed sex-slave, Jonathan and Leah and their parents, Michael and Rosanna. Lawan returns, still caught in Thailand's sex trade. And of course, my favorite--Barbara.
In this novel, Jefe, Mara's uncle, is in prison. Although behind bars, Jefe has means to destroy his niece because she put him behind bars. Jefe will not rest until Mara is dead.
Mara, struggling to overcome her past, discovers she cannot keep it buried, especially when she discovers Francesca whose life is at stake.
Thus Macias weaves a tight-knit web where any action can result in more harm for those who must act.
Macias blazes a trail we Christians need to take note of. Whether young like Jonathan or older like Barbara, we must do what we can to end human trafficking.
Special Delivery will not disappoint. It is a good read.
