"Electric God is the answer to a prayer - a heroic, superbly crafted novel worth reading again and again and again." (Denver Post)
"Inspirational rather than preachy or sentimental, the book wields the emotional power to be expected from a story of family, dogs, justice, and self-reliance." (Publishers Weekly)
Retired CFO, Army wife, Mom of five, Grandma of six, two sons who served in combat, love to read books that reflect my values and faith, love mysteries, historical, military stories, and books that don't waste my time . . . if it doesn't have an ending that was worth the wait, I'm not a happy camper.
There's a depth to Electric God, and all of Catherine Ryan Hyde's books that is just below the surface, niggling to get out, that stays at the back of your mind long after you have finished her books. THEY MAKE YOU THINK. For anyone who has been raised in church or hurt in church by rote memorization of Bible stories by loveless Sunday School teachers, and particularly anyone who is haunted by the "not so perfect" home life, her writing will strike a chord with you. Holding tight to their love and joy, Hayden, his young wife and baby girl are safe in their little cocoon, until something steals that peace away. Then Hayden resumes the long ago battle with God . . . the wrestling that really was never put down, the anger that was just below the surface . . . This isn't a RELIGIOUS book. It's a spiritual journey . . . of testing God and finding God to be who He says He is . . . and being human . . . and finding the courage to forgive.
