I absolutely loved this book! Jody did a wonderful job bringing this story to life. She did a great job staying true to the historical facts while weaving in the emotional side that ties you to the story. I had only heard that John Newton was a slave trader and gave his life to Christ while on a ship, but to read all of the other facts presented in this book made me come to know the great hymn writer even better. I didn't realize the British and French were facing war and how unstable the political scene was at this time in Newton's life. This is definitely a book you'll want to pick up and add to your personal library!
