Despite some flows issues, it took my breath away. It had me laughing, crying and worrying for everyone (but the wife really!) in this book. That is hard to do. I am so glad I read this book and I will be sure to pass it along. It has such a great lesson and such a great story that it deserves a 5 star rating for sure1
This book was very significant for it reminded me of past, present and future.
I'm still me but a better me!
My life is the best the very best.
A touch of AS and a lot of things of Celebrate Recovery!
One other thing missing was a big part (in my opinion) of the book of Job. The entire premise in Job was that it was a test. Satan said he could turn one of God's most righteous and faithful believers and the entire story showed Job's dedication throughout his ordeal. He questioned God, but never failed to praise Him. Seth didn't have that in him. He actually had to be turned around, and it seemed that God "rewarded" him for that turn-around.
A few nit-picky technical details that could have used some more research: Most states, including New Hampshire (where the son was imprisoned) call their top legal attorneys "Attorney General", not "State's Attorney". Once someone is sentenced for a crime, those sentences can't be commuted to something worse. Aaron was sentenced to life in prison for killing someone in prison and Seth's attorney said it could be changed to death if his brother Adam died. That just can't happen. And finally, when explaining the cover-ups and deceits that kept Aaron in prison it was mentioned that the prosecutors did what they did to make up for the failure of their boss, the "State's Attorney", to come up with answers on the death of the senator in Seth's restaurant. But the senator died in Seth's Boston restaurant, which is in a different state.
So, bottom line, between the long, drawn out writing, too detailed descriptions, and inaccurate and inconsistent writing, I just didn't like the book. I only finished it because I had to see what the author would come up with next.
"But Seth & Maria had a family together and a past, like a rich tapestry that time dulls a little but never unravels. They had rediscovered that tapestry, brushed off the dirt and lovingly added new stitches until it shone more colorful and beautiful than before." In the story Seth had already started to fall in love with a different woman but wisely he choose to accept his estranged wife's plea to get back together. Thank you author's for sharing in your story that divorce is not always the answer!

I don't think I could wholeheartedly recommend this book a Christian read but it is an interesting concept.
