Book Review - The Nile by Kenny Blair

The River Nile by Kenny Blair is a pretty short book at only 98 pages.

This book has everything from drama to suspense and surprise all in one. It follows Sister Maria, a doctor from Guatemala who has worked to care for people for charity. Having been an orphan she could totally relate to those in the same position and responded when called upon.

Then there was Julie, who was adopted when she was three years old. She is doing an article for her school about the orphanage where she was adopted from. While researching she finds some info that she thinks needs to be looked into further. The gist of the story is about the sacredness of life and explores pro-life views. There isn't a whole lot to say about it since it's so short. It was alright overall. It can be confusing since there isn't as much backstory as one could wish for. But it wasn't too terrible.


  1. I hate when there's not enough backstory in a novel. Doesn't sound like a bad read, though!

    Thanks so much for stopping by my blog on my SITS day!

  2. Sounds like an interesting premise, but I'm sorry there's not enough back story.

  3. "It wasn't too terrible?" Yikes! I think I'll skip this one.
