Anthony Spencer is egotistical, proud of being a self-made business success at the peak of his game, even though the cost of winning was painfully high. A cerebral hemorrhage leaves Tony comatose in a hospital ICU. He 'awakens' to find himself in a surreal world, a 'living' landscape that mirrors dimensions of his earthly life, from the beautiful to the corrupt. It is here that he has vivid interactions with others he assumes are projections of his own subconscious, but whose directions he follows nonetheless with the possibility that they might lead to authenticity and perhaps, redemption. The adventure draws Tony into deep relational entanglements where he is able to 'see' through the literal eyes and experiences of others, but is "blind" to the consequences of hiding his personal agenda and loss that emerge to war against the processes of healing and trust. Will this unexpected coalescing of events cause Tony to examine his life and realize he built a house of cards on the poisoned grounds of a broken heart? Will he also have the courage to make a critical choice that can undo a major injustice he set in motion before falling into a coma?

I wanted a book that was uplifting and spiritually encouraging. This book fit the bill. It had a good story line with a few surprises. The narrator did a great job. My only criticism is typical of many Christian fiction stories and that is that it was too hokey at times.
No, it's just easier for me,with my busy schedule, to listen to audio books.

Yes. I LOVE Roger Mueller! He is incredible and always excellent!
Grandmother, I relate to the Native culture and I loved her sense of humor, kindness, unconditional love, and patience.
Keep up the amazing work Wm. Paul Young! You are touching many lives, making a difference, and changing the world in such beautiful ways! Thank you Roger Mueller for sharing your beautiful talent with us!
I loved this book listening and and reading. The story was original, riveting, and loving.
Loved it very much . It is a great continence to the Shack and it's meaning. Has some very laughable parts that makes getting through some tough parts easier. I cried, and laugh and shared in the characters emotions as it went. Beautiful story. Highly Recommend! I know I will never be alone nor have I ever been alone even though it may have seemed like it at times. I am Loved always and I matter and I'm enough!
This author is truly anointed and gifted in his craft. His books have the depth of C.S. Lewis, the creativity and imagination of J.R.R. Tolkien and the power of anticipation of Terry Goodkind.
I wept, laughed and repented...both times of listening. Very different from the Shack yet poignant in its on right.
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.
