Two Rivers

*Disclaimer: I received this book for review from Celebrate Lit

This was a vastly different book than what I was expecting when I signed up to review it. It kind of surprised me, to be honest. The story is based around a group of missionaries who head into the West to take the Gospel to Native Americans.

What I wasn’t ready for was the dive into the unseen world that the book quickly takes. From shaman to demon possession, you’re immersed into a world that reminds me closely of Frank Perreti (remember his books from the 90’s?)

The story intrigued me and I was immediately drawn into it. I’m just not sure how I feel about the demon world as I understand how real that is and that it’s not something to be played around with.

I really liked how the author built his characters into the story, though. I could picture each of them in my mind as he introduced them and I love that when I read books. It makes it more interesting when the characters seem like real people that you can relate to or picture in a certain time period.

If you enjoy reading good versus evil, this is the read for you!

About the Book

Book:  Two Rivers

Author: Michael W. Henry

Genre:  Fiction

Release Date: April 10, 2020

In 1840 Pastor Allen Hartman leaves behind his white-steepled church in New York, and the woman he hopes to marry, to serve as a missionary to Indians in the Oregon Territory. On his epic westward journey, he is plunged into the dark end of spiritual warfare and vital intercession. His mettle is further tested when he’s asked to stay in a village of Arapaho already contending with a malevolent witch doctor—where Allen has to draw upon courage he didn’t know he possessed and discovers ministering to Indians is not at all what he imagined.

Arapaho medicine man Two Rivers knows one thing—the Great Spirit is sending White Falcon to help his people defeat the malicious spiritual forces determined to overpower the tribe. But even as White Falcon teams up with Two Rivers, Allen finds himself enslaved in a cave and in a heaven-meets-earth clash of faith with an evil sorcerer. With his life at stake and his new friends unable to help, will Spirit-led prayers of believers lead to a complete victory, or will something be left undone?

More from Michael

Two Rivers is a story about courageous faith. I wrote it because as a missionary in Mexico, I had experienced spiritual encounters that I felt needed to be shared. A historical fiction seemed the perfect place to demonstrate the power of prayer and cross cultural respect in an authentic way.
