Andrew Peterson tries hard--at least 75% of the time--to spur along the action of this "lost in the wilderness adventure," set in the Australian Outback. But even the attractiveness of the hero and heroine, two 20-something love-struck but unbelievably chaste American missionaries, can't pull the saga out of endless hours of stuck-in-the-red-mud boredom. Peterson gathers speed as the couple, after numerous attempts, almost die trying to find a way out, but when the rescue finally comes, the narrator, as well as the listener, stumbles into disbelief over the deus ex machina improbability of it all.
