My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I don’t usually read a whole book through the Kindle App on my phone, but this one was so good that I couldn’t put the phone down. It was suspenseful, dramatic and real all at the same time. There are 2 main characters living in different countries and the chapters alternate between these 2 people’s lives. Parallels exist yet their lives and experiences couldn’t be more different. It seems doubtful that they would ever meet and even if they do someday meet, what would be the outcome of that?
Each is on a spiritual journey; hers is one of healing, acceptance and forgiveness, and his is about pursuing his life’s goal of becoming a priest and helping people. Their lives are full of challenges, struggles and painful realizations – it’s about real life even though it’s fiction. A very interesting read, several twists in the plot keep you guessing. A spiritually stimulating book as well, especially for anyone who’s worked in ministry or has been spiritually searching.
I don’t want to tell you too much about it because it’s unpredictableness is a big part of the enjoyment. I bought this book from Amazon Kindle because the author was doing a fundraiser and donating the proceeds to Nagapattinam Mission Project, which is a long term project helping Tsunami victims recover.
