Alexandria: World Class Life Story by BDL is a narrative with powerful religious and political themes and a conflict that is phenomenal. It is a story of an iconic celebrity pioneering a strong resistance against a Judeo-Christian culture. With a dystopian setting in the distant future, readers encounter the protagonist, a woman who has lived over 100 years and who isn’t a fan of POTUS Stuart, the faithless leader of the nation. Ruth knows that a president who doesn’t believe in anyone or anything above him spells disaster. To save her nation, she’ll need a biographer who can translate an invaluable legacy of faith into writing, and a message that can inspire a new generation of patriots.
In this novel, the author makes a powerful prophecy: the US might be headed for doom if it continues to drift away from the religious convictions of its founding fathers. The author creates a powerful setting in the future, an America that teeters towards perdition. The writing is fluid and I enjoyed the spiritual themes and how they are written into the narrative. Readers will love Ruth, the iconic runner of the twenty-first century, and to explore the dynamics of her faith-filled life. Her connection with God is powerful and this connection could hold answers to a world that is on the brink of collapse.
Alexandria: World Class Life Story is deftly written, filled with insightful passages, eye-catching descriptions, and texts that are spiritually uplifting. While the setting is in the future, the story has a strong relevance for contemporary readers, a reflection of where America could be headed if she doesn’t remember the faith of the founding fathers. The dialogues are natural and designed to enrich the plot, help in character development, and in the exploration of both spiritual and political themes. A visionary novel with a powerful and timely message.
