Redeeming Honor by E.A. West is a pleasant and enjoyable Christian novel about overcoming your insecurities to find love. Basir Hamidi came to America as a broken man. He was disowned by his family for helping the American military in Afghanistan, lost his wife and unborn child to the Taliban, and suffered severe injuries in an explosion during the war. After months in the hospital, he moves in with his friend from the American military, Ryan Carpenter, and his sister, Meghan. The attraction between Basir and Meghan is evident from the beginning, but Basir is held back from pursuing the relationship by the customs of his homeland and his broken honor. Will he be able to overcome his insecurities and be the man Meghan deserves?
Redeeming Honor was a relaxing read. I enjoyed the way E.A. West told the story from both Meghan's and Basir’s points of view, making it easier to understand both characters better. The writing style made it easy to feel compassion for Basir’s situation. The story also brings to light the difficulties foreigners have in adjusting to cultural differences in other countries. I would recommend this tale to any Christian reader looking for an easy afternoon read. The plot is simple but includes a few subplots to keep you entertained. I was a bit disappointed when the story ended and wished I could have learned more about the new and promising life for Basir and Meghan.
