Steve Williams is a park ranger at beautiful Hanging Rock State Park in North Carolina, but he is burdened by tragic memories. Sarah, the girl he loved, was accidentally killed in a car wreck, and he`d been driving the car. Steve had been badly hurt, but he eventually healed. Sarah never would. She lived for five more years in a coma, but her family wouldn't let him near her. He feels hopeless, guilty, alone, and angry at God. Things may have to come to a head before he can ever heal.

The first third of this novel was great. I was all poised to give it a strong five and a rave review, when it begin to fall apart. The storyline did such a twist I felt almost betrayed. The author had led me to trust in an ending that would never happen, and I would never feel that close to the story again. I also began to see lots of mistakes. The writing became stilted in places from not using contractions. The book started to head-hop, where different viewpoints were told in the same scene. Unless this book was set before 1971, and it didn't seem to be (they have cell phones), there is no Appalachian College. It is Appalachian State University. I've never seen an orange turnip either. "He" is used where "his" was needed," "o" for "over," and "past" for "pastor." One sentence said, "Steve Mrs. Williams stood up stiffly." When Gracie came into the story, it suddenly seemed more like a soap opera. I couldn't understand why Steve didn't use his cell phone when he was stranded on the boat, because he had it. The middle of the story lost its momentum for me, and it began to drag. Near the end, one minute Steve is saying he barely knows a woman, and the same day he asks her to marry him and is supposedly madly in love.

It's an exciting story of God's long-suffering grace and redemption filled with action, suspense, and intrigue. The book, however, needs a good editor. The frequent misuse of homonyms and other technical errors was distracting.

I really enjoyed reading Far Country. Steve and the other characters are people that you can relate to in some way at some point in your life. It was hard to put the book down because there's just no way to know what is going to happen next. Far Country is also spiritually challenging, and I found my prayer life improve as I read this story, it reminds you just how big God is.

This was a great book! I couldn't put it down. I was not familiar with the author, but I am an avid reader of religious suspense. I'm hoping to find that she has written more!

I found this book to be a fairly interesting read. It was well written for the most part, but there were so many typos and grammatical errors that it was frustrating. Also the Christmas scene just cuts out as if they had to shorten the book somewhere so they picked that spot to edit. It just didn't flow well in some places. Also I did not appreciate the couple of swear words I found. Absolutely not necessary!

This was a very heartfelt story. I felt as though I knew the characters personally. Story development was well rounded and kept my interest throughout. We need more stories that tell of forgiveness and thanksgiving.
