Will Becky survive?

I must tip my hat to writter, Patience Prence, who takes on a troubling topic, but delivers a story that is acurate and powerful. The main character, Becky, comes across as the typical teenager who is just trying to survive her teenage years. Suddenly her life is turned upside down when the events of prophecy begin to unfold.
The story is terrific and the way it flows will keep the reader turning page after page to see how 'Becky' handles her situation. I enjoyed the way the author put me in 'Becky's' place. I could feel the emotion and sense of forboding she was going through. This is truely a wonderful read that will keep believers as well as non-believers intrieged right up till the end.
I highly recomend this book to anyone that enjoys good stories that are well-written.
This is an intriguing read about a young girl and her life in the End Times.
This over-the edge-writing is fascinating and keeps one turning the pages just.to.see.what. will.happen.next.
There a lot of scripture references in the story and the author was good at keeping the story line about the End Times. This, to me, would be a hard subject to write as a fiction work. The author did a good job of keeping her subject close to the Book.
It does create THE QUESTION "What Would I Do If This Came to Pass?"
Interesting and Intriguing!
There are a few questions I still have about the book after finishing it. The book never mentions what Christians call the Rapture. Becky never makes mention to people disappearing. So, getting into the book, I was thinking that maybe this book was written with the belief that the Rapture happens during the tribulation. But Becky never makes reference to other Christians in the area.. there were a few others in court with her. So, I'm not sure if the rapture happened before the book began, or if it happened after the end of the book. Also, I would have liked some closure on what happened to Becky's Dad and brother...and even toward the end her mother. But this was Becky's story, so I can understand why this information wasn't in this book. Because Becky didn't know what happened to them, neither did we.Read more ›
Scars is a very powerful story about the prophecies of Revelation as seen through the eyes of a teenaged girl. Patience Prence does a marvelous job of switching the scenes back and forth between what is the present state of mind and condition of Rebekah and the events which led to that situation. Both the characters and the plot are very well developed. Unlike other End Times novels, Scars does not get bogged down with in-depth theological discussions of the prophecies and, instead, presents the major points along with the consequences for the actions of the characters. Patience Prence succeeds in telling an exciting and emotionally moving story while also presenting a very believable interpretation of the events foretold in the book of Revelation.
Very well done! - Sheila Rae Myers, Author
