Reviewed by Anne Boling for Readers' Favorite

It was an honor to review Outlaw written by Ted Dekker, read by Nicola Barber. Julian Carter and her two-year-old son traveled from Atlanta to the Northern Coast of Australia in answer to a recurring dream. What began as a dream soon turned into a nightmare; a freakish storm overturned their boat, washing Julian toward shore but her son and the captain were lost at sea. Julian was rescued/captured by the Tulim tribe. The Tulim considered her less than human because of her white skin. Her only hope of survival is to bear one of the princes a son. Her life is in constant danger. She deeply mourns her son Stephen and yet finds the will to survive. Learning the customs of the Tulim and adapting to their way is her only hope.

Author, Ted Dekker, was raised by his missionary parents in New Guinea. His in-depth knowledge of the topic shines through in this extraordinary tale. There is so much more I would like to put in the summary but it would spoil too much for other readers. I’d be remiss if I did not mention Nicola Barber, the narrator; her voice set the ambiance for the entire book. I do not believe another narrator could have done as well. There is a great spiritual message in Outlaw; one that will long stay with me. The analogy of our bodies being a mere costume that we wear for a short time truly touched me as did the thought that we are two. Ted Dekker’s constant reference to two was very effective. In Outlaw the reader will experience envy, anger, greed, love, forgiveness, and grace. This is the book of the year!
