Nothing But The Blood by Dianna Lanser
Miah Betten, beautiful, talented, forgiven... and chosen by God to suffer the unspeakable, hand-picked to do the unimaginable.
Anger burrows beneath Miah's skin like an evil tick, and she can't seem to overcome it. At least not until the day her dad shares a secret that requires Miah to make a choice -- a costly choice that defines her future and takes Miah and her family from their home in the Australian outback to the other side of the world.
Although Miah's mum is convinced America is the septic tank of humanity and strange phone calls begin to prove her right, that doesn’t stop Miah from embracing the American way of life and pursuing her musical and philanthropic dreams. They're hopeful dreams that are supported by a few close friends and a newcomer to her life, a bold, good-looking Native American man.
Just when life can't get any better, destiny stalks Miah with a tragic plan of its own, and why should she expect anything different? Since the day Miah chose to follow Jesus, she knew there would be a cost. She just didn't think it would be so high...
Nothing But the Blood is a love story like none you’ve ever read: chilling, poignant, and portraying the meaning, the joy, and the high cost of following Christ.
