Hope everyone is having a good day! Below is a book review I had the privilege of doing for the author, Felicity Abbott. The book is available on Amazon and is a good read for teens and their parents.
This an interesting and well written story with a strong message about an issue, bullying, that is present in all of our schools, both public, and in this book, private. Parents can feel safe about their teenager reading this book as it is a good clean read and brings out the Christian value of treating one another the way you would like to be treated. I liked the main character, Lacy, a young teenager. Written in a believable way, she is a victim of bullying along with several of her friends. The story shows how difficult it is for teenagers to know how to handle a bullying situation by themselves, and how important it is for parents to stay close to their children and to know what is going on in their lives. It also depicts how devastating the effects of bullying can be for some children. Again, this is a good read for any teen and their parents on a subject which is so common in our society among our teenagers.
Heaven on one side, hell on the other with man caught up in the middle. Which side will he choose?
One victim, a college student dead on a steamy August afternoon on a sidewalk from the highly contagious Ebola virus. The second, a beloved young priest lying dead on the cold, hard asphalt in front of the cathedral where he served after a plunge from the tip of its roof.
Dedicated homicide detective Hayden Douglan struggles against time to stop the spread of the virus and finds evidence that links the deaths of the two men who somehow knew each other. Faith and courage will be tested as information leads to corruption in the highest levels of the religious community and the police department itself then finally to a powerful mystic cloistered behind the walls of a beautiful monastery near Vienna, Austria. The only common thread between the two victims proves to be their mutual belief in an ancient Middle Eastern document which has somehow found its way into Nashville, Music City, USA. What message could this paper hold to cause an unseen enemy to use everything within its power to destroy the ancient text and anyone who has knowledge of it?
