Absolutly Astonishing - God Does Answer Prayer

As I read this book I was surprised at how one person could go through so much hurt and pain and still keep trusting in God. I know Esmie personally and you wonder "How did she do it". She is such a loving and forgiving person. No matter what she went through she never gave up her belief in God. She trusted God for absolutly everything in her life. I could hardly set the book down once I started reading it. A real tear jerker.May God richly bless Esmie and Pastor Branner.

FOR ALL WOMEN: On Choices about Love, Marriage & Religion

Branner's "Beyond the Veil of Darkness" is a moving account of one woman's amazing journey. Turning her back against all the values that she had being taught in her childhood, the author decides to marry someone whose faith is in total opposition to her own. Her choice brings about terrible consequences. Her husband takes her away to his country -Saudi Arabia- where she is literally ostracized. Once there, she must wear an "abaya"-traditional black outfit and veil-, does not speak the language, has no other link to the world except for him, is prohibited from communicating with her family, cannot practice her faith, and worst of all her boys are practically kidnapped by their father and sent away to India to be indoctrinated in their father's religion. Esmie's tribulations are heightened because she does not know about the whereabouts of her children or husband for months. She has been practically abandoned with two little girls in an apartment without food, money, or any type of emotional support.How she was able to survive, leave Saudi Arabia, take all her children with her, maintain her mental sanity and above all continue to manifest such unwavering faith in God, are just a few of the poignant situations narrated in this story.A must read for women who are thinking about entering or are already in relationships with men of a different faith.

This book was uplifting and compelling

Oh wow! The Lord works in mysterious ways all exemplified in the testimony of this faitfull woman. This was a fantastic book filled with many delimas that were all transpired by the religious boundaries set in the middle east. But Esmie made it totally evident that a person in God is has no boundaries in their faith. AMEN
