Vertical Reach =4
These characters are in search of the true and living God and once the circumstances of the story place them with no one else to turn to they are transparent in reaching out to Him. From anguish to accepting His love the Wendi, Jack, and even Henry.
Ministry Message = 5
God's love is hinged on the salvation provided through the death, burial and resurrection of His Son, not on us as humans being perfect.
Craft = 4
Kraus writes with skill and mastery. The plot, pace, characterization and setting pull you in and whip you around from laughter to pain along the way. It is an enjoyable roller coaster ride to humanize a great spiritual message.
Aesthetics = 2
I did not like this cover. I would not have picked up this book based on the cover and to be honest I read it as a free Christian fiction kindle read or it never would have happened.
Dollar$ & $ense = 3.75
Look beyond the cover and enjoy the gem and wonderfully woven story that Kraus tells in this picture of perfection gone all the way wrong to make everything right. Avid readers of any genre would find it a delight.
