The BookViral Review:

Original and wholly absorbing, The Prisoner’s Cross proves a powerful read with Unger clearly demonstrating an ability to touch the hearts and minds of his readers.

Strongly narrative in composition and powerfully drawing on the vastness of Christian doctrine he perfectly frames thought-provoking chapters whilst notably avoiding any hint of cliché.

The Prisoner’s Cross may not be for all audiences but its unwavering commitment to the intelligent thorniness of its themes – the transformative power of faith and God’s power to intervene and work miracles in our everyday lives – and the narrative control Unger exerts over the shifts in tone are quite superb and ensure it’s the seminal subject we are first and foremost drawn to.

With lucid and often cutting prose Unger gives voice to Don’s innermost thoughts and memories and the result proves quite remarkable. Conveying a prevailing sense of immediacy so we clearly see events as they unfold through his eyes. A character who is complex and well-drawn, struggling with various personal issues that test his faith and moral integrity in believable ways.

Through Don and his interviews with Jop De Vries Unger’s prose undeniably lean toward melancholy at times. Giving remarkable insight into Jop’s innermost thoughts and memories as a POW whilst Ungers episodic and frequently melodramatic storyline not only ensures the reader is enthralled throughout but also provides a timeless lesson in resilience.

A highly enjoyable faith-affirming read that provides stirring drama The Prisoners Cross is certainly recommended.
