Publisher's Summary

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?

    "Slow start, good though"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    At first thought the book was confusing but it all panned out and I really enjoyed it.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Wm. Paul Young? Why or why not?

    I will be waiting for his next book.

    "William Paul Young is a true blessing!"

    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!!

    Story
    "Life-changing book of reflection & love"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    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.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    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.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    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!!


    If you could take any character from Cross Roads out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    Thank you Paul Young....again! I hope you keep sharing. God has given you a special gift.

    "Another good Young book"

    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.

    Story
    "If you read; The Shack...then get ready for Cross"

    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.

I belong to a book group and we often" Listen" to the books we have selected for the month while using a paper copy for the discussion notes. It really enhances the quality of the story.

    "A very different read !"

    I loved "The Shack" but this book by Paul Young this book is very different . It has an unexpected plot device but after you see where he is going with it, it works. There are some strange dialogue sequences and a little too much switching of narration of the various characters but I did like the premise of the story and the ending. The narrator was good.
