I would have liked to see more evidence that Marcus was still distraught over his wife's death and had been lately on the brink of suicide. It was sometimes hard to reconcile the heroic Marcus featured in most of the book with the hopeless, suicidal Marcus we are introduced to in the beginning.
Overall a good read.
My surprise, to see this title offered on Christian book sites, made this story a must read.
Marcus's struggles as a child born out of wedlock lead him to an amazing life. God's hands shape him at every turn from his Uncle B.A.D. teaching him discipline and fighting, to his love for the underdog and justice.
God sends him his beautiful wife who points him to the Lord. This opens him to faith and a dynamic preaching ministry.
Even when Marcus's sorrow leads him to do the unthinkable, God was there just in time.
The cast of characters are a colorful, sometimes larger than life, lot from the stuffy Mr.Malcomb Aldolphus Dowell, to the wise, eccentric, witty, Aunt Matilda.
Thank you Dr. Ward for the adventure. I hope you give us more adventures with the hero preacher.
Dr. Ward uses his knowledge of the culture of Barbados to craft a brilliant tale of intrigue and adventure under-girded by an obvious love for God's people and unique message of hope.
Several scenes, one in particular with poor old man Alkins, had me laughing out loud at the superbly vivid descriptions. Marcus's interactions with audacious Auntie Matilda topped the comedy off!
Well worth the read.
