My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Uplifting and encouraging read with likeable albeit not fully developed characters. The plot was engaging although a little more conflict and drama would have been welcome. I liked that the author brought in elements of the supernatural to give the story a little more power. The themes of judgement and forgiveness were well explored and handled deftly. The editors missed a few errors, but only one (where one name was used instead of the correct one) was glaring. It was a bit of a slow read at times, but at the end, I felt good. I recommend it for fans of light Christian fiction.
“…a general feeling of doom hung around like dust over a dirt road on a still day” (p.82).
“He had emerged from his work into a wasteland. Fear rose in him, a foreboding tide that somehow seemed greater than the drought they were facing” (p. 116).
“The rain came like a petulant child given permission to play” (p. 195).
