At the simplest level, this is the story of one person's personal journey from entering the CIA to what they did next.
"Secret life" is a little dramatic and even what is presented doesn't go into great depth. There isn't a lot to learn about "what's worth fighting for" apart from what was important to this person, and a fair bit of that appeared to be a 'God will show you the way' type message.
I really like Michelle's narration. Having heard her on various podcasts, this was a little slower but 1.25x sorted that out neatly. I would be keen to hear her read other books. A real highlight for me.
2/3 of the book is about the CIA journey, and the final third is about a particular project to find somewhere for persecuted middle Eastern Christians. Although I wasn't expecting that, I mostly enjoyed it. However the praying and faith in God stuff here was laid on a bit too thickly for me - I am not against it's inclusion but it was definitely too much for me.
Not a lot to learn here - but you may find the personal story interesting. I was hoping for more insightful stuff to take away for my own life. If my expectation was different, I think I would have rated it a bit higher. The narration is excellent.
