It had it's good points: the main character struggles with addiction, and the author did a good job of portraying the consequences that follow addiction. I also liked how the author realistically portrayed the fact that even after giving his life to Jesus, the character still had to battle the intense desires of the flesh. So many Christian fiction writers act as if, after the character becomes a Christian, they no longer have any troubles or temptations.
The book was weak in some aspects of character development and detail. For example, our heroine obtained her nursing degree in 18 months? (Yes, I've very picky over accuracy of details). Also, at times I found the immaturity of the heroine annoying.
Overall, not a bad book. It's your typical, run-of-the-mill Christian fiction. I wouldn't read it again, but I also don't regret reading it.
However, I had a hard time believing the drastic change in Dylan from alcoholic to strong man of faith in less than a year. The former alcoholics I know who came to Jesus did make remarkable strides. But Dylan’s seemed too easy. Lorraine’s willingness to become engaged before her divorce was final made her out to be the bad guy rather than the wounded wife. At first I read every word but as parable upon parable was added I skimmed over those spiritual nuggets to get back to the changing relationship storyline. Dylan’s near death experience seemed over the top. Adding one more spiritual truth the author felt the reader needed to hear.
The story at times had an unbelievable feel to me. Not because I don’t believe Jesus is in the restoring business. But alcoholism is ugly and the scars run deep for families of alcoholics. But this is a fiction and the story is meant to inspire the reader to seek the Lord and rely on Him. I believe the author accomplished that goal.
drinking each time after he had made progress.
I understand the addict life to some degree and I let go of fiat feeling.
I was really pulling for Dylan and Lorraine.
It was nice to have Dylan take it slow for the most part.
I really enjoyed the part where Dylan was in heaven and when his daughter Amanda talked to him.
I was disappointed in the ending. I felt a let down when the ending didn't go just a little bit farther.
on the whole it was a good read and I really liked it.
The 'Moral of the Story' has its merits and there were many good bits of advice about the harm of excess drinking and for someone who might be reading this who is not a Christian, it might Pique their interest enough to find out more.
But as a real page turner, this isn't it. I am glad I finally reached the end. I gave it a 3 star rating for effort and intent. Very poorly proofread as well.
