Book Description

When 18 year old Steve Williams takes his girlfriend, and hopefully soon-to-be-fiance Sarah, for a spin in his new car and flips it on graduation night, it changes his life forever. Sarah is left in a coma and her family, including Sarah's brother and Steve's lifelong best friend David, shun the teenager, refusing to ever let him see Sarah again. No amount of prayers or counseling with the pastor who befriends him bring the miracle that Steve needs. Sarah will never recover. Steve's life is shattered and his hopes for the future are destroyed. Bitter and alone, Steve leaves for college and eventually graduates.However, despite his attempts to build a new life as a park ranger far from his hometown, he cannot escape the weight of the guilt he bears, or get past the damage that his one moment of failure has cost everyone that he loves. As far as he is concerned his life is over - until the day a former classmate joins the staff at Hanging Rock State Park. Deborah's faith and the series of events that follow force Steve to finally face the pain of the night he has spent the last few years trying to forget. Unexpectedly, Steve's lonely but safe world begins to change once again. Maybe, just maybe, God has not abandoned him after all!

4.0 out of 5 stars Twisted in the Wrong Direction for Me February 22, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Far Country February 23, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 page turner! February 12, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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!

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.

This author caught my attention with the first sentence of the book. I wanted to continue reading until I finished it. It was enjoyable and quite realistic. It is great to have another Christian author to read, and I hope there will be another book coming out soon!
