That said, the reason I gave it a 3 was because it needed an editor, preferably someone with a good knowledge of proper English. Constantly the wrong case of pronouns was used. I don't know how many times sentences had a singular subject with a plural verb. As one other reviewer said, parts became tedious. The descriptions of the spiritual warfare were overdone. We didn't the repetition of demon description. How many times in the book were we told how long ago Luther had moved to Florida and all the details of Mabel's husband's death, the trial, and her forgiveness of the man who killed him. The 364 pages could easily have been reduced to 264 and nothing would have suffered.
If the reader isn't bothered by things like that, I'd say is is a wonderful book and highly recommend it.
Shelby seems to have it all! But when her grandfather, Luther, passes away she is not mentioned in his will. Nothing!
Shelby feels betrayed and goes into a slump. Then a few days later she finds a hand written letter from her grandfather that is post dated.
This is where the intrigue, the mystery, the action begin.
This story reminds me of an allegory. The characters or events in this story represent or symbolize ideas and concepts. I'm probably reading between the lines but I see Shelby as me...you, the everyday person, the bank deposit box as the Bible, the six dangerous men as the evil that tries to so easily beset us, and the treasure as eternal life.
I was a little confused by the title, The Pelican Trees, so when I studied this word, pelican, I came up with...the a symbol of self-sacrifice. So, as I read this book I realized that Christ is our sacrifice and all.in.all this is what the total of this read is about...Christ, our Savior. Because as it states on the dedication page, "This book is dedicated to all who are diligently searching for the Truth."
This is one of those life changing reads written in story form. A not to be missed read!
