- amazing book by Mark on 8/9/2016
I became an instant fan of James Rubart's books when I read his first novel, Rooms. His books are far from being the average Christian fiction novels out there, and he always has such an interesting way of writing.
I had some extra time last night and decided to read a few chapters in this new book of Rubart's, fully intending to lay it aside...... and that never happened. The trials of Jake Palmer pulled me into the book and I read the entire book in one sitting....... and enjoyed every minute of it.
Rubart has a talent for addressing issues in a fictional way that take a hold and stick with you far better than a non-fictional book ever could. The message of this book is two-fold: true healing comes in the heart, not outwardly/physically, and we need to stop hiding our scars and struggles and bring them into the light.
I loved the characters, especially Jake, who had lost so much and had high hopes of finding this secret corridor where he'd get his heart's desire. The plot and setting were great, and Rubart wrote in such a way that I wasn't sure how the story was going to go and what all would happen. It didn't go the way I thought it would, but it was an amazing book with an amazing ending. I highly recommend it.
I was given a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.
