I believe I have read all of your books so far. I have to say I have enjoyed this series the most. Proof of Life was awesome. I couldn’t wait to read it and you did not disappoint us. This book is inspiring. We all make decisions we regret in our lives, the awesome part is that God is such a loving and forgiving Father.
In this book it shows how loving and forgiving our Heavenly Father is through a wrong decision Alex (the main character) did when he was younger that affected him, but also his love ones. Years of feeling guilty and wrong Alex comes to realize that God forgave him, he just had to forgive himself. It’s sometimes easier to see how God forgives us, but for us to forgive ourselves it’s difficult.
I love this part of the book that states, “If God only gave us what we could handle, why would we need Him? God, in fact, does give us more than we can handle and then offers us His strength, His wisdom and His peace to deal with it. …….. God wanted us to trust Him to get through the situation. To not try and do it all on our own.” This is true I’ve heard the statement and I have stated myself the saying “God only gives us what we can handle”, but what you wrote here makes so much sense. God wants us to lean on to Him, to want Him, to need Him.
Great job writing this book. I pray you continue to allow God to use you through the gift He gave you in writing. God bless.
(Though reviews are inherently subjective, I prefer to provide some organization to my opinions through the use of a personal rubric. The following notes may contain spoilers.)
Plot and Setting: 4 -- Plot has unique elements and no major holes, but a few shaky bits and/or a slight lack of focus. The whole premise is, fortunately, unlikely to the point of being almost hard to believe. But it is handled well, and the Alana plot is incorporated in wonderful ways. Setting is clear and believable. Timeline may be a bit hard to follow. Slight confusion with how old they were at their last meeting. According to book 3, Melanie was 16 when abducted, and A & A are about 4 years older, so Alex was 20. They married soon after that, but in this book he seems to have been 19. Also a lot of stuff packed into a very few weeks.
Characters: 5 -- Relatable, realistic, interesting, dynamic characters. Alex and Rebecca married very young, with the added difficulty of limited means of contact. So while Alex suggested abortion as a reaction to the terrible things he had seen, Rebecca assumed he had changed into someone she didn't know. It's awkward when they meet again, but both are mature enough to not overreact to small things, and instead manage to talk things through and sort things out fairly sensibly and smoothly. Even minor characters have depth, as do the relationships between characters. Lots of strength in relations with Alex's family and work community.
Mechanics and Writing: 4 -- A handful of typos, punctuation issues, or word errors, but nothing that seriously hinders understanding. Includes things like flubbed suffixes, dashes where hyphens should be, and 'him' in place of 'hymn.' Good use of POV (Alex and Rebecca). Generally skillful writing.
Redeeming Value: 4.5 -- Partially focused uplifting themes or lessons. The main spiritual journey is Alex's, as he learns to stop carrying his guilt when he knows he is forgiven. There's a prayer vigil for Alana, as well as frequent prayers for her from Alex as he goes through his days. It's neat to see how Justin is comforted and encouraged and at peace when surrounded by prayers. Sex, alcohol, violence, etc, are not glorified, but it does contain hints of terrible things with Alex's past in the military and Alana's (and Melanie's) kidnapping.
Personal Enjoyment: 4.5 -- I loved it. Highly enjoyable and very entertaining, with perhaps an issue or two that tempered my pleasure. One I'll definitely read again.
This is story of love lost and second chances.
My favorite character was Jordan who handled his new life with joy.
I love the introduction of these new characters that add another dimension to the series , as in life.
