5.0 out of 5 stars superb storytelling from an author skilled in his craft, October 19, 2012
This review is from: Borders of the Heart (Paperback)
Once you pick up "Borders of the Heart", by author Chris Fabry, you won't be able to put it down. You will also want to read every other book written by Chris Fabry. In this timeless tale of loss, grief, survival, and love, a man tries to escape the reality of his life by losing himself in hard work and the encompassing heat of the desert. What he ultimately discovers is that when you run from the truth, it runs right along beside you. When he can no longer bear the grief of his wife's death from cancer, and he has lost the creative spark behind his songwriting and singing, J.D. Jessup heads to the West and the desert. He finds work on an organic farm in Arizona, and his employer adamantly advises him to report any sighting of illegal immigrants to Border Patrol. One morning on his regular route of checking the fence lines, his contemplation of where he was and how he came to be there is shockingly disturbed by the discovery of the body of a young woman face down in the dry desert dust. Since the body is being drooled over by a coyote and being crawled upon by a rattler ready to strike, J.D. assumes the woman is dead. To his surprise, she is still alive, and he rescues her from the predators, taking her back to the farm in hiding. Following his heart instead of his boss's mandate, J.D. does not call Border Patrol, and his actions set into motion a series of life-changing events. The woman, Maria, is mysterious, compelling, intriguing, and she forces J.D. to come to grips with the fact that while his wife died, he still lives. The danger that left Maria near death in the dust follows them, and soon they are on a desperate flight to save both their lives. If they survive, will J.D. risk his heart to this newly found love, with a future so different than he could ever have imagined? "Borders of the Heart" has a contemporary setting, but the themes of love, loss, and reborn hearts, and the eternal battle of good versus evil are truly well read in any era. Here, in this place of scorching heat, with its constant stream of illegal immigrants, the story line has added depth. How would any of us handle the situation that J.D. found himself in? Superb storytelling from an author skilled in his craft.
