This month the Christian Fiction Review Blog is touring Jenny Cote's The Ark, the Reed and the Fire Cloud.
About the book:
Wit, Whimsy, Heartache, Tragedy, Triumph and Biblical Truth A magical
adventure of animals traveling worldwide to Noah's ark Max, a Scottish terrier,
takes his usual morning trot down to the loch where he hears a mysterious
Voice humming in the reeds saying, "COME TO ME...FOLLOW THE FIRE CLOUD." He
embarks on an unknown journey from Scotland, meeting other animals along
the way including Liz, a brilliant, petite black cat from France. Max and Liz
become the brave leaders for their group, and eventually, for the entire
ark. The mysterious journey, filled with danger, humor, trials, and
triumphs, leads them across Europe to the Middle East. The moment of arrival for
these animals is spectacular as the ark is miraculously transformed into the
animals' natural habitats.
Throughout the prior one hundred years, Noah and family have to endure
ridicule from villagers while building the ark. Now this family must painfully
witness the loss of lives and total destruction of the earth through the
mighty flood. After the journey to the ark, the voyage in the ark begins. Liz
finds ways to keep the animals occupied, including daily exercise led by
the flamingos and talent night where the animals entertain each other with
their natural abilities. BUT a sinister plot develops. Someone is out to
kill Noah and his family. Liz follows clues that lead her to discover a
stowaway who has deceived them all. Max and Liz foil the plot, but at a high
price. The end climaxes with unexpected twists and turns, taking the reader
from despair to hope.
