Awesome! Jul 6, 2006
I really wasn't sure about this book, but it was simply wonderful! The plot is gripping and the characters are simply wonderful to dive into. Definitely a must read in Christian suspense!
The backstory is interesting and is added in throughout the book as Lacey and Micah come to grips with their pasts and what they know about each other.

Didn't buy the premise, didn't buy the story Jan 13, 2006
I'm afraid I have to be devil's advocate here about Flee The Night. I didn't finish it for a number of reasons, not the least of which was I couldn't buy the hero and heroine's relationship from day one. Micah HATES this woman, yet when she calls, he drops everything and comes; there are times he asks himself, "Why am I doing this?"--which the reader is also asking!--yet he never gives us a plausible answer. After awhile, a character who keeps acting against his/her own gut instincts, history, and inherent nature, without good reason, just comes across as not knowing what he or she really wants. Someone like that, I won't root for.
And as for the heroine? I couldn't feel anything for her. Maybe it was because the book was so poorly paced that I kept paging backward, then forward again, trying to figure out what--if anything--was really happening from scene to scene. (A lot of times, nothing was.) Maybe it was because the author gives us little slices of angst here and there, but nothing I could latch onto and really feel for.
But most of all, I ended up giving up on this book when the plot went from mildly implausible to plain silly. The most glaring example of this is a scene where heroine is on the run--has to HIDE, mind you--but she needs clothing and shoes. So what does she do? Ask Micah to run somewhere and get her a few things to wear? Tell him her size, lock the door and keep the shades drawn? That's what any normal woman being pursued would do. What does this one do?
She goes shopping. Not at a little hole in the wall store where no one is likely to see her, but at Wal-Mart...where she walks into the store barefoot and they let her in anyway (like that's going to happen?)...and then this odd couple starts playing little flirting games while she's trying on clothes.
To which I can only say, "Huh?"
Sorry, folks. I can't jump on the bandwagon here. Maybe a plot goof that large doesn't bother some people, but to me it's a fatal flaw. I put the book down, and it's not getting picked up again. While some of the images Ms. Warren uses are wonderful, and some of her writing is beautiful, the book as a whole fails.
More than 5 stars Nov 4, 2005
Several good reviews of the book have been given so I will just say that I would give this more than 5 stars if I could. What a really good story. If you go to her website you will be linked with a free read called "Waiting for Dawn" and it gives the prequel to Flee the Night. Trust me, you won't be disappointed with this book. When you get it be sure to get Escape to Morning, it will save you an extra trip to the bookstore. Susan May Warren does exceptional work!
Action-filled fun! Jun 15, 2005
Ex-CIA operative Lacey Montgomery has been running for years. Someone has been on her tail. But who? She only stops long enough to catch up with her young daughter. All she wants is a normal life for her child, but she wonders if that's even possible.
The National Security Agency has accused her of murder and Lacey is once again on the run. Will the NSA make her face her crimes? Crimes she never committed?
Who can help her uncover the truth in her past? Whose promises can she believe?
Only one name comes to Lacey's mind: Jim Micah, who was once her friend and childhood sweetheart. However, being an ex-Green Beret, Jim is still determined to defend his country in whatever way he can. He plans to turn Lacy over to the authorities for the crimes he believes she committed.
Now with her daughter held hostage, Lacey must work to free her child without getting herself killed. Lacey knows Jim wants to turn her in to the authorities, but she needs Jim's help to save the life of her child.
This action-filled, suspenseful story was a real page-turner. With several characters to keep track of in a story that unfolded piece by piece, wondering how each fit into the big picture kept me glued to the book until the end.
God's fingerprints are all over this story, showing mercy at every turn. Freedom, both spiritual and physical, eludes Lacey. And though she longs for redemption, she also believes she doesn't deserve it.
When Micah comes to her aid, will he be able to shine God's light as they flee the night?
