Behind The Veils Of Yemen

I recently read Behind The Veils Of Yemen by Audra Grace Shelby. This is one of those books that you just can't put down - it's that good. The family's story begins when Audra's husband, Kevin, becomes deathly ill while on their trip to be approved by the mission board in order to go to Yemen. It hooked me there and didn't let go till the last page. I was absolutely fascinated with Audra's adventures in Yemen, and truly enjoyed learning more about the Muslim women "behind the veil". 

My only complaint about this book is that I wanted more. When the book ended, I felt like we were left hanging with only half of the story told. I really wanted to know what happened when Audra went back to Yemen after having the baby. I also was a little disappointed that we were told basically nothing about Kevin's missionary work in Yemen, whether anyone was saved, what they did while there in terms of starting churches, etc. I wish we could have seen what fruit they left there. Also, I was really disappointed that we didn't get to find out if Fatima ever got saved! :)

Overall this was an absolutely excellent book that I enjoyed so much. I loved being able to get a peek into another country that I otherwise never would have gotten. I highly recommend this book. I only hope she writes another one!

I received a copy of this book from Chosen Publishing in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
