Isabella was a thirty year old wife and mother when she was abducted while running errands. She is sold to a Saudi Arabian prince, Latif. The prince finds himself captivated by her but she refuses to submit to his will. This novel will keep the reader up late into the night. I was unable to stop reading. The life Isabella is sold into is one few western people can understand. Return to Book Page.

Excellently imagined, and told in an escalating crescendo, Hahn effectively creates the drama she sets out to in the contemporary Christian fiction novel. From the beginning I was drawn in by the story, and found myself wanting to read more and further despite the many time constraints I experienced while reviewing Journey.
On the writing style: Hahn does an excellent job of using language and prose that is easily accessed by a wide range of consumers, yet she also finds her voice quickly and expresses her artistic style where appropriate and does so in a way that did not pull me away from the story proper. Hahn also in my opinion excellently captures the plight and terror of someone held hostage, not only by depicting the behavior and structure of kidnapping and kidnappers, but by also wonderfully depicting the thought processes and human experience of those who would find themselves so powerless and frail.
On the Target Audience: While the story has mass appeal and so I think will be interesting to a wide variety of readers, there is a strong Judeo-Christian philosophy running throughout the text and so I believe individuals with an affinity for such teachings and philosophies will be the most attracted to and satisfied with this well paced and flowing storyline. On the best parts. Closing thoughts and overall summary: An ever escalating read that will challenge the way you think and worship, as well as tease you with the life too many of our earthly kin must live, Journey is the type of novel you will be talking to your friends about when you finish!

Unspeakable Journey by Rinda Hahn
Wow just wow!!! Amazing and not at all what I expected. A must read for anyone, but as a Christian this is amazing and just a testimony to how God can take the worst situations and use them for good!

Isabella quickly discerns that Hasam is not only a man of power, but pure evil. Hasam ends up selling Isabella to his closet friend Latif, a very wealthy Saudi Arabian prince. Isabella is suddenly forced into a country, a culture and a marriage that will shake her faith to the core and test her limits mentally, emotionally and spiritually. In the midst of a truly horrific nightmare, Isabella manages to dig deep within and share the love of Christ with those around her.
The impact she has on many lives is amazing and inspirational. This is an example of being the hands and feet of Jesus no matter where we are, or how difficult the situation is. As others observe us in a difficult situation, our life may have more impact than we realize and our testimony more power, than we ever imagined. This is one of those books you might not want to start at bedtime unless you plan to be up all night. I could hardly put it down and felt like I was right next to Isabella as she clung to her hope and faith in Christ.
Congratulations to Rinda for a brilliant debut! Jan 20, Cindy rated it it was amazing. What a debut novel, for Rinda Hahn.
Unspeakable Journey is a book I could not put down until I read the last page, and I didn't cheat and skip to the back. What a awesome debut novel. Isabella was on top of the world, she had just had a night out with her friends celebrating her thirtieth birthday which was coming up in a few days, she had a awesome family, her husband Sam and she were madly in love, and they had two adorable daughters. And in the span of 30 seconds it all came crashing do WOW!!
And in the span of 30 seconds it all came crashing down, when she was abducted in a grocery store parking lot. Isabella's beautiful red hair and startling green eyes, made her noticable, and made her a prize for the human traffiker who snatched her and took her to Saudi Arabia, where she was sold to the prince to be one of his wives. Forced into a marriage with the prince, the only thing that kept Isabella sane was her faith, and her friendship with Latif's sister. Will she ever see her home in Indiana again? Will Sam still love her? Will her daughter's forget their mommy?
Unspeakable Journey is a book that details the nightmare and the horror of having your life change in seconds, and finding yourself a prisoner. Rinda Hahn's debut novel is a book that I totally was immersed in.
Along the way, many lesser demons are pounded into dust, mountain Buddhas come to life, humans are roasted on spits, and an elaborate stunt involving a blood-spurting jugular goes horribly, hilariously awry. Journey to the West works so well because Chow has a flair for grand comic-action set pieces, and his imagination seems to actually draw energy from these rapid-fire tonal shifts. Unlike Jackie Chan, who turns everything into buoyant comedy, Chow is at his best when juggling disparate elements — tragedy, slapstick, romance, melancholy, fantasy.
Everything is big with him; he seems incapable of underplaying anything. The crazier his movies, the better. You may wonder, afterwards, if you dreamt it all.
