My Hands Came Away Red
by Lisa Mckay ’03M.A. (Moody Publishers)
This debut novel follows the path of 18-year-old Cori, who volunteers to help build a church on a remote island in Indonesia. When a wave of violence washes over the Christian and Muslim villages in the area, the mission team of teen-age builders is forced to flee, and Cori wrestles with spiritual questions during the difficult journey to safety.
Publisher’s Weekly called the book “one of Christian fiction’s best novels of the year.”
