Boone Drake is a young police officer that seems to be living the American dream. He has it all – a beautiful new family, a great career, good friends… he’s really livin’ the life! Suddenly he loses all that is near and dear to him and has to choose his path in life and decide what path God wants him on. He must learn to deal with bitterness, anger, and regret.
I enjoyed this book. I have to admit that I read the first 100 pages in one sitting and couldn’t get it out of my mind! It is a real page-turner and is an intense but relateable book. I couldn’t wait to read what was going to happen next. The characters really seem real and what happens to them really MATTERED to me as the reader! I will certainly be checking out Jerry B. Jenkins’ other novels soon because I just loved the style of writing and how the story was woven together.
From this book, I will say that I have certainly been thinking about my own life and how I don’t want to take advantage of the time I have with my family. I have also been thinking about my relationship with God and how I can show it more to others with my words and actions. This book brings up many points that have me pondering them long after finishing the story.
