Incredible work of art...
on 9 January 2018
I read this book many months after reading 'This Present Darkness', and whilst I had previously thought that was incredible, this is leagues ahead. Although a little slow to start, owing to the many characters and important details, once this got going it was a struggle to put down. I absolutely love the character of Sally, as she is so well thought out and relatable that it is difficult not to be invested in her story. To that end, her character is, in my opinion, an integral part of why this book works so well.
Other notable highlights include the seamless integration of spiritual warfare and Christian apologetics without sounding 'preachy', and the depth of the storyline, which often left me speechless.
I would have liked to get more of a glimpse into Sally's world before it all began, especially with regard to her previous male relationships, but I suppose that would be another book (which I'd love, although it's very unlikely) as this is quite a long book.
All in all, this is one of the absolute best work of fiction I have ever read, not to talk of Christian fiction. This gives 'Redeeming Love' and 'As Sure as the Dawn' a run for their money. I really was sad when it ended. Thank God for the talent he has placed in Frank Peretti.
