Dear Readers, as we get close to releasing both books of The Leeward Set—Fury in the Storm, and sequel Tears in the Wind—I wanted to share some of my research for Tears in the Wind, Leeward Set #2. Journey with me from the shores of Nigeria to the jungles of Myanmar as God’s daring people rescue child soldiers from front line violence! Here are some behind-the-scene glimpses into Book Two.
Angry Men in Myanmar
If you’ve been watching the news, you’ve possibly seen that Myanmar is in upheaval over a stateless people group called the Rohingya people. Their government permits violence against these Internally Displaced Persons who are prohibited to register for the national census. Thousands of Rohingya families are fleeing into Bangladesh due to the military’s direct involvement in ethnic persecution.
One of the main male characters in Tears in the Wind, named Tawfe, is of the Rohingya people. He’s a mercenary whose skills at tracking enemies bring him face to face with a Christian who will impact Tawfe’s bitter heart for eternity. As you read this action-packed novel, you will learn more about the Rohingya people.
