Product description

Review

e-SCRIBES, UK - November 10, 2016

"We find this a skillful, thoughtful and deeply moving novel... and it's an inspiration to anyone who knows someone in this situation, or whose physical life as they knew it has been unexpectedly curtailed. This book is a life lesson from which we will all extract our own, differing, narratives."

INDIEREADER - February 15, 2016

"BECAUSE is a deeply moving, emotionally-powerful tale of intertwined lives, and of finding strength to go on in the face of utter despair. There are multiple stories braided into the main plot, as each of the characters has a voice and a tale of their own. Robert's story, therefore, is reflected in the stories of those he's helped as well as those who want to help him, giving the book a multifaceted perspective and adding deeper emotional and philosophical layers to the plot. This is a heartbreaking but ultimately uplifting book, and there isn't a character who doesn't have a substantial, painful tragedy to wrestle with... 

BECAUSE is a book full of both emotional intensity and real philosophical and psychological insight." 

MIDWEST BOOK REVIEW - Small Press Bookwatch November 2015 Issue

"A deftly crafted novel and an absorbing read from beginning to end, "because" is a compelling and thoroughly entertaining novel that documents author Jack Langedijk's truly exceptional storytelling skills..." - Midwest Book Review

KIRKUS REVIEWS MAGAZINE - August 15, 2015 Issue

"...Langedijk has lots to say about courage, compassion, redemption, and self-worth...

Meditations on some of life's biggest questions as told through some harrowing experiences." - Kirkus Reviews

Amazon.ca Top 100 Reviewer, Charles Dimov

I cannot say enough about Jack Langedijk's book. I just finished reading it - and am feeling completely inspired.

For anyone facing change, a challenge, or hardship - this is a wonderful book to read. It takes you through a tragic part of a remarkable man's life... and looks at his transformation and ability to cope/or not - with the biggest hurdle of his life.

It is a fantastic character development story, with an emotional punch. If you are going through any hardship, or challenge - you will want to read Because. There were emotional moments that gripped you in a pit of despair... with a breakthrough moment that brings you back to that sense of clarity - to see the path forward.

This gripping novel has renewed my own hope in my personal challenges.

If you are looking for an inspiring novel - to get you back on your feet and ready to re-appreciate life... this is the one for you!

I loved every minute of it!

I will be recommending Because to my friends! :-)

From the Author

To all those who may feel alone in their struggles. And to each and every person who takes the time to show them that they are not alone.
