“Congo Dawn marks another brilliant foray by award-winning Windle (Freedom’s Stand, 2011), a child of missionaries, into the ambiguous worlds of war-torn regions. She effortlessly blends journalistic objectivity, humanitarian interest, faith-based inspiration, and the struggle of individuals to determine what is right. Windle’s writing is engrossing, and this tale of moral suspense is a must-read.  American Library Association Booklist

Windle comes off a highly acclaimed pair of books on Afghanistan (Veiled Freedom, Freedom’s Stand) and moves into the jungles of the Congo. . . . Inverting the Heart of Darkness trope of self-discovery in the jungle, this story sheds light through a great faith struggle . . .   Publishers Weekly (read full review)

“Windle turns detailed reporting, gospel understanding, and a suspenseful plot into a story that will keep you turning pages and thinking more deeply about God’s love and human suffering.” Notable Books Spotlight, WORLD Magazine


Windle—author of the political/suspense thriller CrossFire—taps into current events with her newest novel, set in Afghanistan. Relief worker Amy Mallory had dreamed of working in Kabul for years, yet her first impressions of the dusty, tradition-bound city aren’t great. Steve Wilson, leader of the personal security detail for Afghanistan’s minister of the interior, carries memories of his last time in the war-torn country. And Jamil, the Afghan whom Amy hires as her interpreter, is haunted by his past. The trio’s lives entwine as they struggle to live and work in Kabul, Amy through New Hope—offering protection to women released from prison—and Steve through protecting Khalid Sayef, a leader who promises reform. Windle’s writing sings when she compares the teachings of Isa Masih (Jesus Christ) with those of Muhammad, but occasionally clunks with overuse of acronyms and convoluted sentences. Yet readers will be enthralled with this penetrating look at Afghanistan and its many mysteries revealed through the lives of flawed men and women. Windle is a top-notch storyteller. Publishers Weekly, 4/20/09
