Treasures In Dark Places by Leanna Cinquanta
Leanna realizes that one woman can only do so much, and she founds TellAsia Ministries to reach out to the masses and provide aid and hope to those without.
While I found this book to be an interesting background to Leanna's world and the reason she got into mission work, this book is not at all what I expected it to be based on the front and back covers. I had incorrectly been under the impression that it focused primarily on her work to help aid and assist children, particularly those who were orphaned or abducted and involved in sex trafficking. This portion of the story only takes up a very small amount of the book, with most of the book focusing on Leanna's own youth. While that story would be more intriguing to someone looking for a history of her personal life and ministry, it is not what I was looking for when I got the book. Overall, I'm giving it 3/5 stars, deduced mostly from the misrepresentation of the contents based on the back cover blurb.
