Jonah isn’t a bad man, but he has a nasty temper, that flares up over the slightest thing. He had had it his entire life, but it really started coming through after the death of his beloved wife. Flanagan does an excellent job of portraying Jonah’s flaring temper in the first instance you meet him when he is trying to get his coffee. First he spills the coffee grains and throws the scoop in frustration, after which, he throws his mug into te sink and breaks it.
Eldin is a professor at the same college Jonah works at. He is a very humble man and well-liked because of his easygoingness, and genuine caring for others. He warns Jonah that he needs to get his temper under control because of the harm it inadvertently does to others.
This is a delightful and easy to read story that emphasizes how, just because we cannot see them, angels are all around us, protecting us, but also reminding us that we are loved, which is the theme of the story. Flannagan does a great job in telling a tale that brings home the fact that all that matters is that we are loved by a far higher power, and that that is all that matters.
When I started to flip pages as I settled in for my read, suddenly I found myself in a land of religious scholars and celestial angels which was a total surprise to me. I found myself wanting to know more about the characters and those serene angels.
I’m not going to spoil the plot but let’s just say the main character had a destructive trait that his family bore with some understanding, while he, himself, was somewhat oblivious to the repercussions caused by this trait. The author takes the reader and the characters on unspoken mission to resolution using the scholar’s own words in the religious world where he resides.
The book flows at a very nice pace and has envelopes the reader with all the love and caring that angels give us. I enjoyed it very much.
Written with a lyrical cadence at the onset, ‘Jonah' takes us from the macro to the micro as the author shows us needs and unseen provision settling at last on Jonah and his family. Here, M. Flanagan shows us a particular need, which we all have. Then she does the unthinkable that had me scratching my head in amazement, for this well-grounded story is turned topsy-turvy and suddenly our ‘Jonah’ is the ‘Jonah’ who refused to go to Nineveh.
So as not to spoil the outcome, all I can say this is a must read story! Whether you love to read the Bible or not, I believe you will absolutely relish this novel, and be looking for this authors next book as eagerly as I am doing now!
