Synopsis:

She is willing to testify against her trafficker.
If she can stay alive that long.

“You’re safe here, Starr.”
How many times has Detective Cole Blacksky said that to her since helping her escape the life she’d been forced into eight years earlier?
Starr desperately wants to believe him, but she knows Brady Erickson, her former captor, too well. Although Cole has promised her protective custody on his family’s remote ranch, no place on earth is safe enough. Brady will stop at nothing to permanently silence her before she ever reaches the witness stand.
And he is powerful enough to do it.
If Starr wants to help the other women, she has no choice but to put herself in God’s hands. And Cole’s. But the longer she and Cole stay hidden, the more her life is at risk.
And her heart.

Every so often, an author I love writes on a topic I’m uncomfortable with, and I’m presented with the dilemma of whether to read it because I trust the author or not to read it because of the subject matter. Seeing Every Star in the Sky was about human trafficking, I was torn and debated for several weeks about whether I should request an advance copy to review. Over the years, I’ve grown to trust Sara Davison. I appreciate her heart for the Lord and the compassion that flows from her stories. Therefore, I decided I just couldn’t pass this story up…

I’m a little awed right now at the incredible story I just finished reading! How the author managed to take such an ugly subject and turn it into a story filled with hope and love and healing is beyond me! She avoided going into details that would have been, in my opinion, inappropriate. While it was clear that the situation Starr had been rescued from was heinous, that wasn’t the point of the story and I wouldn’t feel uncomfortable recommending this book even to older teens – which is quite a stretch for me – I tend to be quite conservative in what I think teens should read.

It was stunning, to say the least, to discover that Starr had retained her strong faith in God’s love for her despite the trials she endured. That she was the one sharing with her rescuer, Cole, about the hope found in Jesus was simply beautiful. I loved seeing him struggle through understanding how Jesus can see our hurt and not jump in and rescue us from it right then and there and how he came to realize that God is good and, though His ways are beyond ours, He can be trusted at all times.

As I’ve come to expect from Sara Davison, Every Star in the Sky handles unpleasant topics with tenderness and sensitivity, not responding with platitudes but with understanding and grace. This is not a dark story. It is not frightening suspense either. It is a beautiful picture of redemption from the darkness of this world and of mercy, grace, and hope and it touched me deeply.

Readers who enjoy strong messages of faith dealing with subjects relevant to our world will want to read Every Star in the Sky. And, most likely, every other story Sara Davison has written!
