This is a great story but readers be warned, the message is very different than The Shack and should not go into it thinking so. The message is more subtle but very important to Christians and non-Christians alike.
Thank you Paul for the amazing story and to Roger for bringing it to life.
At first thought the book was confusing but it all panned out and I really enjoyed it.
I will be waiting for his next book.
I love everything this man writes. I'm hoping and praying he's got more books either written or in the works. If you haven't heard THE SHACK, go get it. This book is on the same lines as THE SHACK, but this one is a little lighter. Caution -- you have to be a true believer in what can possibly happen when God gets involved, or you won't get the story or like this book! This one is a true KEEPER!!
I have recommended this book to everyone I know just as I did "The Shack". The book makes you reflect on your own life and the choices that form our lives. I depicts God's love, forgiveness and steadfastness to help you in a manner a child can understand.
My favorite character is Tony Spencer. To watch the metamorphosis, as he grows in understanding, is unbelievable. How broken he is because of blaming God for his pain instead of trusting God. His character was so real to me I could feel his hurt, growth & change.
When Tony found himself in Cabby and they were looking through the picture book. Cabby's reaction to Tony saying "wolverine" and what followed made me laugh out loud!!
That is a difficult choice but it would probably be Angela. She will need guidance to rid herself of the anger and bitterness that gripped her for so long.
Thank you Paul Young....again! I hope you keep sharing. God has given you a special gift.
I had read the shack before
It was very interesting
The emotions and hearing it instead of reading it.
Everything is goof
If u like the shack then you will like this book
Tell us about yourself!
I got lost when the Cabby started telepathy talking with Tony was bit much for me.
It one thing when the experience is Tony, but when Cabby be came more of character I lost interested.
I'm not sure
The characters who were still living.
I loved the Shack and I was hoping this book would be as inspiring as that one.
This book, as the first, the Shack, makes you think and wonder. What if, and could that be the way. It is a thought provoking book and good, good, good.

This is a story of redemption. You work out the past with Tony/Anthony through this book. The reader does a great job! All the different voices and attitudes. If you read/listened to the shack & enjoyed it then you will also enjoy this one. The emotion is so raw that I ened up wiping tears away at times. And I don't cry a lot ever, about anything. Not as sad as the Shack because it's not about a kidnapped, never found lil girl. But just as powerful in so many ways.
I've read this and The Shack as well. I've bought extra copies just to give away. I buy audio books so my husband can enjoy the same books on trips. However, I find my self listen to books now more than music. Man I am getting old. If you read to escape you can listen to escape as well. We listen to audible books on our boat as we fish. It gives us other things to talk aboutthan our mundane ins & outs of each day. It's omething we can do together or apartand still have a common bond, topic, interest.
These books are worth your money. They may even change your life, if you let them.
