Dr. Mark Graham and his team are doing an archeological dig in Zimbabwe. All kinds of things seem to go wrong from missing artifacts to lost pictures to a cave in. Mark is arrested for violations of the agreement with the government and lax safety on the site. Now Mark does not know who to trust with his findings. It seems his best friend and also his lover are out to derail him. He is let go from the university and told he cannot announce his findings. But one of the others from the dig, Anthony, gets a college in Texas to back Mark and agree to let him have his say. While at home Mark becomes acquainted with Amy, whom he used to babysit but has now grown up. She is a Christian and Mark is questioning his faith. While Mark says he loves her, Amy tells him that she needs to distance herself and give herself time to explore the world.
This is an interesting read in which evolution and God's creation are debated. From a fictional point of view, it shows how mainstream culture will do anything to disprove God's handiwork. Mark struggles with the scientist side of himself, while also trying to come to terms with what he was taught in church as a child. Some good minor characters are thrown in, including a sister whom Mark never knew he had. I think the cover fit the book well. This is a very worthwhile read, which I enjoyed very much.
