Review “THE GIRL BEHIND THE RED ROPE” By Ted Dekker and Rachelle Dekker
When the name “Dekker” appears on a shelf, it is a fact that I usually run to get a copy of the book as fast as possible.
In this new title, a woman by the name of Grace leads readers through a world of both belief and evil. Grace and her family are part of a religious cult that dwells deep in the hills of Tennessee. This community is, quite literally, behind a red rope and has a rule in place that if you cross the rope, something extremely bad will happen to you.
It was a decade ago that Grace first saw something that changed history when it was unleashed upon the world. But according to the cult, their people are the safest because staying behind the red rope—and living by the rules at all times—will keep them alive no matter what may be happening to others.
It is her own family’s questions, however, that brings outsiders near the red rope and the fury on the other side is suddenly crystal clear. Enemies with devious thoughts and ideas are now close to her, but she has a hard time figuring out who, exactly, is the most evil. After all, the people in her community believe whatever they are told, and their fears about whatever might be over the rope keep them stuck in this spooky cult without ever asking questions or wondering why.
The Dekker’s have written a pure guessing game for the fans out there. When the book has ended, which side of the red rope would you choose to be on? Once you find out where the darkness spawns from, you might be surprised at your initial answer. There are no real boundaries to this one, and that’s the fun. The Dekker’s have created a tale that allows your imagination to run wild…even if your body can’t.
