    Mackenzie Allen Philips' youngest daughter, Missy, has been abducted during a family vacation and evidence that she may have been brutally murdered is found in an abandoned shack deep in the Oregon wilderness. Four years later in the midst of his Great Sadness, Mack receives a suspicious note, apparently from God, inviting him back to that shack for a weekend. Against his better judgment he arrives at the shack on a wintry afternoon and walks back into his darkest nightmare.

    Overall

    There would never be enough characters to write a review on this book, but I will try hard to make it in the Audible 2000 limit.

    I read this book shortly after my mother passed away. The day after her funeral I received a call that I might have cancer, my 4 year old needed a risky eye surgery, and my laptop crashed that had all of my nursing school books and class notes and finals were coming up. Needless to say it was a tough time for me.

    I came across this book through a random conversation and bought it a few days after. I opened it at 8pm one evening and finished it at 4am with a new joy in my heart and a lot of snotty tissues at my side! Since that evening I have bought copy after copy and given it to friends, family, even strangers! My husband and I are trying to work overtime to save up and buy a case of this thing so we can continue to spread it amongst the Earth. It gave me such joy to know it was doing so well and was on the best seller's list!

    Be forewarned, the first 5 chapters are pretty rough and hard to get through, but I promise that if you ride that crazy road with Mac . . . what happens Chapter 6 and forward is the most perfect literary expression of God's love that I have ever read. It will bring seekers closer to finding, it will bring dusty Bibles off the book shelf, it will have those who thought they knew it all to rethink all they ever knew, it will bring your heart closer to the God who wants so dearly to hold it in His hand and make it feel joy unimaginable! You will laugh, you will cry, you will question, you will find answers, and you will be glad glad glad!

    Do yourself a favor and read/ listen/ absorb/ rejoice for the experience you are about to have could very well change your life (and everyone else you come across!)

    As for us, with a little patience and a lot of grace we are rockin' like little rock stars, amen!

    Much Love!
