CSFF: Haunt of Jackals by Eric Wilson

My apologies to the author and the CSFF organization. With the passing of my father, I missed posting the book review for this great book.

The CSFF presents:


About the Book:

1211: Crusaders ship tons of soil from Jerusalem back to Italy, convinced of its holy properties. But something unholy has joined them.

1944: Allied bombs destroy a cemetery only yards from the Leaning Tower of Pisa. A fire rages. A tomb is opened.

In our modern world, Gina Lazarescu is a young woman caught trying to forgive her mother and track down her father. If she fails at either task, she will die.

Thorns will overrun its palaces...The ruins will become a haunt for jackals. --Isaiah 34:13

About the Author:

"From an early age, I wanted to be a writer. Although I was born in California and raised in Oregon, my more enduring memories start in Europe where my parents took Bibles behind the Iron Curtain. Life was an adventure, full of exotic cultures and peoples.

Back in the States, I went through junior high and high school. I loved soccer, basketball, chess...oh, yes, and girls. It took a few years to learn how to talk to them, but they interested me from a distance. After high school, I traveled in eastern Europe and China. I returned to my parents’ crumbling marriage. I moved to LA and began college.

During my junior year, a childhood friend showed up as a freshman. Within months she and I were married, and we’re now in our eighteenth year, with two daughters to keep us on our toes. We’re not perfect (our kids could give you details), but we refuse to stop fighting for our family...and for our faith in Jesus, who is bigger than our self-centeredness. "

April, no need to apologize (though I appreciate you thinking of the tour and the author). When my dad passed away, it took a long time before I felt like I was able to operate normally again. I expected you to take some time.

We love having you post, but if you need to cut back for a while, I'll understand.
