About this product
- DescriptionThe Reckoning, winner of the 2009 Indie Book Award for Multicultural Fiction and the 2010 Writer's Digest International Self-Published Book Award for Mainstream/Literary Fiction, tells the story of a journey home gone terribly wrong. When journalist Theresa Fuller is captured inside Iraq in August 2002, and imprisoned by Iraq's secret police, visions of her childhood in Baghdad begin to haunt her. Tormented by the relentless Colonel Badr, she only finds relief in her growing attraction to Tariq al-Awali, the Iraqi captain who took charge of her capture. Before American bombs begin to fall, Theresa must find a way to escape the cruelty of an oppressive regime and save those she cares for most. Through gritty, gut wrenching prose Mills exposes the horrors of dictatorship and the mindless cruelty that flows from political repression. The Reckoning masterfully weaves the horrors of Saddam Hussein's Iraq with the rich threads of a compelling fictional narrative as raw and real as anything taken from today's political headlines. It also sends a message of hope, inspiration, and faith in the human heart.
