Inspired by 'American Taliban' John Walker Lindh, this compelling novel from the award-winning author tells the story of a young girl leaving her home, family and country for radical Islam.

Aden Grace Sawyer has travelled a long way to begin her new life, and she'll travel further to protect her secret. But once she's in Pakistan, Aden finds herself in more danger than she could have imagined. Faced with violence and loss, she must make choices that will test not only her faith, but her understanding of who she is.

Compelling, unnerving and timely, Godsend is a study of what it means for a person to give themselves to their faith, and how far they will go to find a place to belong.
