Mirador by James Jennings is the story of a man who just wanted to keep his wife safe but ended up in the middle of a war that was never his to fight. Set in the early 1990s, the story follows Nate, a computer engineer who was enjoying a wonderful life and career when everything went downhill. His wife Sarah is a nurse and she wants to help the people of Mirador. He doesn’t really want to go but he doesn’t want to send his wife alone either, so he goes along with it. However, when tragedy hits, Nate joins a group of rebels who will change his life and give him a new purpose. Now he appears to have a battle to fight that is making him rethink everything that he ever knew. With a new purpose, Nate is a new man who is ready to do whatever it takes to fulfill that purpose.

This is one of those historical fiction novels where it is apparent that the author spent some time doing research and getting it right. From the very beginning, the author not only let the reader know the characters were in for a dramatic ride, but he also ensured that the reader was strapped in tight to enjoy the ride along with the characters. The story is very riveting; I got to experience a part of history that is often overlooked by authors and the media in general. I enjoyed Nate’s growth; he started as a reluctant tourist, but towards the end, he was living for his purpose and earning his right to be where he was. I wanted Nate to succeed and get his happiness too. This was a wonderful novel! A brilliantly crafted journey that I thoroughly enjoyed.
