Bookish and street-smart Hermana Lannie Lewis wants to be more than the child of a broken home who flunked out of music school. Full-time mission service will carry her away from the problems with her dad and immerse her hands in the work of God, or, it would, if she’d stop hiding in the bathroom and wishing the island had better bug spray.
When a disaster transforms her mission into a world of peril and overwhelming need, she will have to learn to hear the Lord’s voice for herself, even if it means she stands against the crowd.
Rating: Moderate. Brief nudity; non-graphic sexual references; some violence or horror.
I didn’t think I would like “Hermana.” I’m an almost-70 curmudgeon, and I didn’t think all that girly-stuff would appeal to me.
I didn’t like it. I loved it. Like many missions, “Hermana” started kind of slowly, but then it picked up speed. By the end of the book, I didn’t want it to end.
