Summary

Best-selling author Robert Whitlow explores the meaning of family and home - and how faith forms the identity of both - in this breathtaking sequel to Chosen People.

Despite their Israeli citizenship, Hana and Daud cannot safely return to their homeland because a dangerous terrorist ring is threatening Daud. Hana is perfectly fine remaining in the United States, working for a law firm in Atlanta, especially when she learns she’s pregnant. But Daud can’t shake the draw to return home to Israel, even if it makes him a walking target.

Hana is helping her boss plan a huge summit in Atlanta when Jakob Brodsky, her old friend and former co-litigator, asks for her help with a case. His client is attempting to recover ancient artifacts stolen from his Jewish great-grandfather at the end of World War II. Because the case crosses several national borders, he needs Hana’s knowledge and skill to get to the bottom of what happened to these precious artifacts.

Meanwhile, Daud is called in to help a US intelligence agency extract a Ukrainian doctor from a dangerous situation in Egypt. While overseas, he can’t resist the call of Jerusalem and thus sets off a series of events that puts thousands of people in danger, including his wife and unborn child.

With historical mysteries, religious intrigue, and political danger, Promised Land asks one momentous question: What if your calling puts you - and your family - in the crosshairs? 

Praise for Promised Land:

"Promised Land is a book about coming home. Of becoming settled in your spirit and your relationships. With layers of intensity, thanks to international intrigue, moments of legal wrangling, and pages of sweet relationships, this book is rich and complex. A wonderful read." (Cara Putman, author of Flight Risk

Second and final audiobook in the Chosen People series.

Full-length, Christian fiction novel.

Great follow-up to book one.

Not as much action as I was expecting, but an excellent story to listen to. The author spent a lot of time discussing recipes, maybe his next book will be a cookbook. More in-depth discussion about the main characters. The narration was much better than in book 1.

disappointing

I finished the first book in the series which left me anxious for the continuation in book two, but it was disappointing for two reasons. 1. The narrator used annoying voices for the characters. 2. The second book was more love story than action adventure with way too much detail about house buying, pregnancy etc.

Love the story

Only "voice" I didn't like was the New York accent lawyer but that's just me. It was different from 1st in the series and takes getting used to.

Another great Whitlow book!

I enjoyed this book as well as the first in the series, Chosen People. My only disappointment was having someone different read it.

Another good Ludlow book

Loved it not only for the story, but for all the cultural description of foods & customs. Wonderful second book in this series. Will there be another?

Intriguing story held back by narration

Good sequel by Robert Whitlow. I enjoyed the story -good character Develpment and exciting plot. But the narration was very annoying. Some characters , but not all, were spoken with a lisp. And the American characters all sounded like they came from Jersey, not Atlanta.

Terrible narration. A total let down.

I don’t know what happened to the old narrator, but they should have brought her back. The new one tries way too hard. I’m about 3 hours into the book and I want to quit except that I love the story. The narrator’s voices for everyone except Hannah and Daoud are terrible. They sound forced and unnatural. Please don’t use her again! The story is nearly ruined.
