Athol Dickson's LOST MISSION!!

Howdy, y'all! I'm honored and thrilled to participate in the blog tour for ATHOL DICKSON's newest release, LOST MISSION. Below, you'll find some juicy details about the book and Athol.

Since I received the book only last Friday (yes, that's to let you know, per FTC regs, that the book was free), I have not read the book yet as I had family commitments over the weekend and homeschool co-op and sick twins today. But never fear! I will post the review when I'm done reading it. Oh--just a teaser: I've already started reading, and I have to say that I love Athol's literary voice. Fabulous!!
But have you seen the cover? I confess, it captured my interest immediately. Then, I read the back-cover copy, and decided--definitely! This is a must-read!

Okay, so on to the vitals:

About the book:
What haunting legacy awaits deep beneath the barrios and wealthy enclaves of Southern California?

A billionaire driven mad by grief.

A pastor in love with the wrong woman.

An illegal immigrant desperate to feed his family.

Only Lupe de la Garza can save them from the ancient evil lurking in a lost mission's ruins, but it will take an act of faith beyond all human power.

An idyllic Spanish mission collapses in the eighteenth century atop the supernatural evidence of a shocking crime. Twelve generations later the ground is opened up, the forgotten ruins are disturbed, and rich and poor alike confront the onslaught of resurging hell on earth. Caught up in the catastrophe are...
· A humble shopkeeper compelled to leave her tiny village deep in Mexico to preach in America
· A minister wracked with guilt for loving the wrong woman
· An unimaginably wealthy man, blinded to the consequences of his grand plans
· A devoted father and husband driven to a horrible discovery that changes everything

Will the evil that destroyed the Misión de Santa Dolores rise to overwhelm them? Or will they beat back the terrible desires that led to the mission's good Franciscan founder's standing in the midst of flames ignited by his enemies and friends alike more than two centuries ago?

From the high Sierra Madre mountains to the harsh Sonoran desert, from the privileged world of millionaire moguls to the impoverished immigrants who serve them, Athol Dickson once again weaves a gripping story of suspense that spans centuries and cultures to explore the abiding possibility of miracles.

Ronie here, again. Doesn't that sound intriguing? I thought so. Well, what are you waiting for? BUY LOST MISSION NOW!!!

  1. Sounds like a must-read. And it's got a great cover too so I'll easily see it.

  2. I am really enjoying it so far, even though my life keeps interrupting. LOL
