Bring Her Home By Hannah Currie

Bring Her Home
by Hannah Currie
Publisher: WhiteCrown Publishing
Series: Crown of Promise

First of all, this cover is gorgeous. Second, the storyline grabbed my attention! And third, I received the ebook ARC for this review.


Since the morning he woke to find his precious daughter gone with only the remains of their latest argument left behind, King Lior has been praying she’d come home. For four years now, he’s prayed and searched, sending his best knights to find Evangeline, only to hear nothing. Until the day their missive arrives with three words: we’ve found her. He sends one right back with orders to bring her home.

But that order isn’t easily achieved. Evangeline, now a lowly servant, has no plans to return. Though the knights claim her father still loves her, she knows the truth: he’d cast her aside as quickly as everyone else if he knew how far she’d truly fallen. She can’t go home. Not with her scars. Or her failures. Or her son.

Only, the knights won’t leave without her. And just as she starts to wonder if maybe they might be right, the choice is taken from her altogether.

Sir Darrek thought the hardest part of his quest would be finding Evangeline. He had no idea how difficult it would be to get her home.

My Review:

What an incredibly powerful story! I was very surprised at the depth that the author covered in this story and it spoke to my heart.

We meet Evangeline, who left home as an early teen in defiance of her father. Darrek, one of her father's knights has spent the past four years with other knights looking for her. When we meet them, Eva, as she goes by that now, is a servant for a tyrant of a ruler in his kingdom. Darrek and his fellow knights have found her, but have to figure out how to help her escape.

Eva has been broken over the years and the way the author explains it, is heart wrenching. I appreciate that the author understands what young adults are going through and does an incredible job of giving readers an insight to self-harm and the ramifications that can come from it that the person probably struggles with. Not an easy topic, but I'm thankful the author weaves it into her story.

Darrek is a man of faith, but we can see his struggles as well. He's lost a lot in his young life and while he's very hopeful to rescue Eva, he knows that God doesn't always answer the way we hope. His encouragement and caretaking of Eva is beautiful and tremendous example of how God loves us, oftentimes in spite of what we've done.

There's also a hint of the prodigal son in this story through Eva, but also through the sibling who stayed, which I already can't wait to read Rose's story! Whew! How is God going to work though that daughter of the king? 

About the Author:

Australian author, Hannah Currie, loves God, family, people (in small numbers, let’s not go crazy here!) and writing. A book nerd from birth, she knows firsthand the difference a good book can make in a person’s life. Even, and especially, fiction. Her dream as a writer is to make people laugh, cry and maybe even swoon a little but mostly to remind them that no matter how dark life may get at times, because of God, there is always hope. 

She and her husband live with their three adorable kids in sunny Queensland, where it really is beautiful one day and perfect the next. Except, maybe, during heatwaves. They’re not so fun. 

She loves to connect with readers. Come visit her at
