By Michelle Barfield
“Jake looked at Ava and instinctively started to run toward her when the unexpected, the unimaginable, the unthinkable happened.”
Jake Barringer came to Burundi in Africa to dig a well and bring clean drinking water to the villages surrounding Rumonge. He never imagined that he would meet Dr. Ava Lindley, his soul mate, the true and forever love of his life. As Jake and Ava made plans to return to the States and begin a new life together, they could never have imagined the tragic circumstances that they were about to endure. In one horrific night, Jake’s beloved Ava would be ripped from his life in a test of faith that would cause Jake to question everything – his life, his faith, and his God. Would a loving God have brought them together just to leave them alone and broken? Or would Jake’s faith in the God of miracles leave him with more than he could have ever asked or imagined?
The Well, the first novel by author Michelle Barfield, is the captivating story of faith, hope, and undying love that not only cuts across cultural lines, but spiritual ones as well. The perfect mixture of humor, suspense, and intensity keeps the reader turning page after page in a desperate attempt to discover how this amazing love story will end.
