Book Description

A recluse emerges from the backwoods on the eve of his son’s romantic, southern wedding. Dinner spirals into chaos when the self-proclaimed prophet announces he hears spiritual messages straight from God. The voices tell him to prepare the way for the end of the world. His disturbing words find foothold in undeniable facts as disbelief dissolves into terror. Those who gathered to celebrate are suddenly faced with an unthinkable dilemma. They must follow him into a remote, secret sanctuary, prepared exclusively survival… or they can die. As apocalyptic events begin to unfold, the ancient battle of darkness and light quickly becomes a modern reality.

Watch the critically acclaimed Video Book Trailer at rebaponderweiss.com or click on Author Page (Reba Ponder Weiss Page ~ link in blue above).

Remember the name Reba Ponder Weiss. Hers is a truly fresh new voice, and this stunning debut reveals a world of authentic detail and familiar wit, full of Southern charm... Southern charm, that is, facing the end of the world. What follows is as explosive and spellbinding as any of the wildest movie adventures, not rollicking fun so much as a breathless race to survive.
- M. Chance

Get ready to be taken on a page-turning journey. It starts out with a ..."Come on in, y'all. We're gettin' ready for a weddin'." ... kind of beginning. Then the roller-coaster ride begins. If you enjoy a book that makes you nod your head, raise your eyebrows, and wonder about the bigger answers hiding inside the little lessons we all need to learn ... you are going to LOVE this book.
- S. Landrum

5.0 out of 5 stars A truly gripping read! June 29, 2012
Format:Paperback
Remember the name Reba Ponder Weiss. Hers is a truly fresh new voice, and this stunning debut reveals a world of authentic detail and familiar wit,
full of Southern charm... Southern charm, that is, facing the end of the world. The stage is set for a traditional Southern wedding, with all the
tender affection and comic interludes you would find in any such gathering of a real family, but the proceedings are imbued with a gathering sense of
foreboding... And then the world as we know it endures a cataclysmic event, plunging this family into a harried race against extinction. What follows
is as explosive and spellbinding as any of the wildest movie adventures, not rollicking fun so much as a breathless race to survive. It becomes a
nightmare vision of the dark side of humanity, the side that might be brought out under the most extreme and adverse conditions. Conversely, the
beauty, character, and human dignity that remain under even such duress shine all the brighter... and Weiss unfolds a relentless, mesmerizing tale,
ultimately taking you on the survival ride of your life. This book is a stunning achievement by a first time writer, heralding not only a bold new
voice, but a bold new mash-up of genre.

5.0 out of 5 stars I AM CONFUSED BY THE LESS THAN GLOWING REVIEWS! October 26, 2012
By Jim
Format:Paperback
After reading this book, I went back and read some of the reviews again. I have to say I am a little confused. Either these readers did not read the entire story, had a darker agenda, or this book is not a part of their normal reading genre. Can I just point out one thing? If a person does not leave any biography information including where they live or care enough to add a picture of something...could be reviewing this book from the "look inside feature" and trying to hurt this author. I LOVED this book!
I agree this book has a lot of characters. The description tells you a bunch of families are coming together for a wedding. What did you expect--three characters? The author needed a lot of people for the story line and I think she does a good job of developing the ones who needed to be cultivated. If you can't get passed the characters maybe you need to read something below college level! Just keep reading. I promise it will be worth it.
Another reviewer said the book was "painstakingly slow". Glenda, I hate to point out the obvious but this IS a Southern Author writing about a Southern family in the Deep South! What did you expect? Maybe you need to cut back a little on the caffeine and change your choice of authors. I suggest staying away from books like "The Help" and "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn". They also bring you into the "slower Southern lifestyle" and I seriously doubt you would enjoy it.
Finally, a reviewer said the book needed grammatical and punctuation editing. Is this book absolutely perfect in every dot and tittle? NO. Is it a problem when reading the book? NO. I found a couple of punctuation errors, but no more than I find in any other book out there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing. Kept me on the edge of my seat. September 22, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This is not your typical, end-times thriller. The twists and turns in the plot always keep you thinking, and questioning just as much as the characters in the story do. It's sort of like Lost meets Left Behind meets The Twilight Zone. The ending leaves me pondering the collective fate of the characters, which drives me a little crazy, but that's what intriguing stories do. They stick with you long after you finish the book.

I can easily imagine this story as a film, and Weiss writes in such a way that engages the "theatre of the mind". For Christians, it is a reminder to always be sure that the person you're following is truly in line with the Lord, and to test all things with Scripture. If you're looking for a suspenseful story that also makes you think, this is it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Your Ordinary Book... September 30, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've been reading a lot lately. And I am so tired of vampire, vapid love story, evil villain, tried and true plot lines. This is none of those. This I Know is strange, but in a good way. It is disturbing and chilling and leaves you feeling a bit unfinished, which is not usually how I like a book to make me feel in the end, but it made me think. It drew me in (I read the book in a matter of hours) and while the writing feels a bit forced at times, the use of Sarah's narrative, the unusual storyline, and the individual characters kept me reading.

I still find myself wanting more closure and a bit more insight into some of the characters, but overall a great read. Just don't read alone on a dark rainy night.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well Written, Gripping September 22, 2012
By g'elle
Format:Kindle Edition
A family gathered for a wedding in the South, and like most large families, individuals representing the broad sphere of filial relationships were ably represented in the author's depiction of the events. The vibrant young, the cultured and sophisticated middle aged, the repectable old. Add to that the inconvinient preacher uncle and the loony relative. The day of the wedding, the world came to an end, and the loony relative had all the answers and plans for survival.

The book takes one on a journey we all hope never to participate in, but we sometimes wonder in our hearts, What happens when the world ends.The answer I found within its pages is simply this; you don't want to be there. If the world ends don't follow a loony relative.

I read it in one night, I kept thumbing through the pages till I reached the end. In all it is a well written story.

Reba Ponder Weiss was born and raised in Jones Chapel, a small farming community, outside of Cullman, Alabama. Later she moved to upstate New York, lived in the suburbs of Georgia, and enjoyed her home on the prairies of Wyoming. Currently, she lives and works on the east end of Long Island, but dreams of retiring one day with her husband, Joseph, and their children, to Fayetteville, Tennessee.

Reba draws her inspiration from her Southern roots and life long night terrors. Years of vivid nightmares are kept in a personal journal, full of hand written notes and sketches, detailing the hours in the night when her mind seems to take its own little road trip. this I know: Sarah's Confession and tells me so: The Last Witness are spine chilling, and sometimes disturbing, paranormal thrillers based on one of those journeys...which began when consciousness ended.

Hey Travellin' Man...this is a great discussion! I don't know about you but I was in turmoil throughout most of the book.
