Book Review Saturday (Edition 6)

I simply CRAVE learning as much as possible about our daughters' birth country. So when I discovered the book Totally Surrounded by Christina Di Stefano Davis, I knew I had to read it!

This book will keep you on the edge as you read this true story of a nineteen year old young woman who loves the Lord so deeply that she leaves all behind to go into the jungle of Philippines for Him. Your heart will be touched by her sensitivity, warmth, and love. Christian's testimony is inspiring to young and old. ~ Quoted from a book review on Christianbook.

I did find it kept me on the edge of my seat. Both the Engineer and Peach read it as well and enjoyed it very much! It was a real blessing to see such a deep abiding faith in a woman so young. Di Stefano also has an uncanny ability to write with lots of foreshadowing -- thus why one is kept on the edge of their seats! It also gave me more of a glimpse into the culture and lifestyle of the Filipino peoples! (What beautiful people they are!!)  I can't wait to read this one to my girls when we're back at the home schooling again! Now if only I can keep it out of Beans's hands or there will be no surprises for her!

If you get the opportunity, read this book! It's a fast, easy and riveting read! What are you reading these days? I'd love to know!



  1. I think I would like to read this book too! And have my daughter read it as well (she loves books too!).

    We are excitedly planning a trip back to the Philippines for this summer... my son has never been!

  2. It looks very interesting. I am going to Cebu in August for a traveling seminary. Praying for you, dearest!


Thank you for sharing your thoughts. I love to hear from my readers!
