"Friendly fire" killed Megan Juddman's husband during the Gulf War. Now bitterness over a suspected cover-up---and guilt over a shameful secret---threaten to consume her. Escaping to her hometown of Twisp, Washington, she befriends decorated veteran Tharon Marsh. But when his painful secrets and her tragic past collide as the events of 9/11 rock the country, can Megan relinquish anger and embrace forgiveness? 400 pages, softcover from Howard.
I agree with the lady from Guatemala. It took some effort to 'get into' the story. Re. Conaniah's prayer, I thought that was his prayer as written? The connection between Megan and Marsh was a little convoluted and contorted. I also had some difficulty fitting the puzzle with the senior reporter. Of course, he has a living wife, so a love story in that direction wasn't it.

Review 2 for The Trumpet at Twisp
Date:January 7, 2006
I really enjoyed this book. I'll list three positive points: 1) It has a stronger Christian message than "Betrayal in Paris". 2) I was really drawin into the characters - I felt like I was part of it all. 3) Both the characters and the plot where very real. Now two negative points: 1)Ms. Fell should have included the words of Conaniah's prayer when he receives Jesus. A non-Christian reader wouldn't know what he prayed! This was a huge drawback! 2) Sometimes the story developed at a slow pace.This occured only in some sections of the first half. The rest of it was suspenseful and captivating. Summary: An awesome plot with very real characters in a real world. I enjoyed it very much. I hope a third book comes out SOON!
