Refuge – Melinda Viergever Inman

Intent on total destruction, Satan notices Cain’s obsessive lust for Lilith and the dark roots of jealousy growing deep in his soul towards his do-gooding brother Abel. Satan goads him to the point of madness, barraging his mind with thoughts of hatred, lust, and futility. In a binding rage, Cain wrecks everything. Wracked with shame, he flees into the vast wilderness, unable to possess the one thing he truly desires – Lilith. His life is destroyed and he wonders if he will ever find his way back. He longs for refuge and wonders if he will ever find God again?

In this story, we see the struggle of sin starting with Adam and how it accelerates with each generation. The story largely focuses on Cain and his struggle with sin and how he eventually succumbs. The aftermath of his action reaches farther than he could have ever expected. Not only is this a story of sin and the ramification of our actions, it is also a love story. We see how Cain’s act affected not only himself, but also the people he loved most.

When I first started this book I wasn’t sure what to expect. The further I read, I found myself turning the page waiting to find out what was going to happen next. Tackling a concept of this depth is no easy task and I am happy to say I was not disappointed in the quality of the work. Throughout the story, I found myself questioning several things I had never really thought about before.

A story like this that can keep my attention is difficult to find. I hope others get as much from the story as I did.
