Lip Reading - A Review

A Review
This tale begins with a kidnapping, industrial espionage, and a hurricane - and that is not the story.  On the otherhand, he went to jail to protect her - yet, he still loved her.  She spent her life trying to make up for the shame she felt - yet, she still loved him.  Shame and guilt do not make for healthy choices in anyone’s life - and it was no more true for Rebecca Jackson, PhD, than it would be for you or for me.  And it was just as hard for her to accept that fact as it would be for you or me.

Blood transfusions have risks - the risks of transmitting disease, the risk of type mismatching.  Both  Dr. Rebecca Jackson and Dr. Noah Linebrink were working on developing an artificial blood supply in order to minimize these risks.  Each has solved part of the problem - the catch is that they both work for competing pharmaceutical companies - companies that would sooner work together than mix oil with water.

The death threats being sent to Dr. Jackson might be just enough to crush the entire endeavor.  Her father, a local police chief, is convinced that those threats are coming from Noah or another high school friend shared by he and Rebecca.  To stop the threats, somebody begins to threaten the suspects families.

When Dr. Jackson discovers she is ill, the urgency to finish the project increases.  The result is a heart stopping book that I could not wait to finish.  The reader will want to follow the steps that Rebecca and Noah take individually and together to create this life saving  mix.  With enough twists and turns to keep the reader in the book until the very last page, the answer will require God’s grace in the lives of all involved.  

This review is based on a free electronic copy provided by the publisher for the purpose of creating this review.  The opinions expressed are mine alone.
