I hope they are touched by the underlying horror of so many of the children fighting in wars, dying, being kidnapped, starved and freezing, are the unborn from our world getting their chance at life. It’s a subtle theme in the book, but I hope it sits in the back of the readers mind and paints the whole world with a bit of sadness and horror.
I also hope my readers are touched by Jonah’s story and his confidence born out through the mercy and undeserved rescue he experienced. Along with that, I hope my readers appreciate and grow in their own understanding of warriors and the courage and burdens these men bear.
