Publisher's Summary

On April ninth, thousands of people wake from the same dream, visits from angels instructing them to build a biblical ark in their front yards or the town square or little league field - anywhere - to prepare for the worst natural disaster to strike the world since the days of Noah. A widowed California high school teacher risks everything to build a boat in the 60 days she is given. A homeless self-proclaimed prophet of God preaches across Boston's waterfront, unaware that he is not alone in his visions. A young priest is torn between the signs around him and the skepticism of his church. In the end only 30 people may board each boat. As the world slowly comes to grips with events unfolding around them, they must weigh their own faith in the exceptional and identical visions of so many people. The skies are clear, without a hint of rain. But if the dreams are true, something terrible is looming on the horizon.

    "Beautiful Characters. Really challenging theme."

    What if God asked you to do the impossible?
    What if you did absolutely everything right, but still never got the reward you were hoping for in life? Where would your faith be then?
    For me, one of the strongest challenges Daniel G. Keohane brings to light in this book is whether or not we truly do what is right because it's right, or do we always have in the back of our minds the thought that surely we will get rewarded for this somehow. But what if our sacrifices in life, only lead us to opportunities to sacrifice even more? Will we still do what is right?

    I love the characters developed in this story. People from so many cultures and backgrounds, each struggling with their own messed up lives. Daniel G. Keohane does a beautiful job of taking us inside their struggles to see the heart of the person.

    Caroline Miller captured well the tone, emotions and attitudes of the hugely varying characters.

    I feel like I've been on an really emotional journey, yet I'm somewhat sad to leave it behind and move on.

    "I couldn't finish it either"

    Like the other person that reviewed this book, I also couldn't finish it. I really tried but it just wasn't holding my interest. I couldn't get past the fact that in the Bible, God had already promised that he would never flood the earth again, and yet people were preparing for it. I even eventually lost track of who was who and what was what. I really did want to like this book too because it had potential, but I'm just not sure what it was lacking.

    "Couldn't finish it"

    The author in exchange for my review gave me an audio copy of this book.. I tried to like it.. I tried to ignore the fact that Moses, not Noah, was mentioned as being impressed by God to build an ark not far into the book. I tried to get over the fact that God said He would never again destroy the earth by water and gave us rainbows to mark that covenant... After all fiction is fiction.... But I could not eventually get past the fact that I just flat did not like this book and going farther into it put me to sleep.. Sorry... Just being honest.. Better luck next time!

    Story
    "Old School Suspense/Thriller"

    I don't usually listen to this genre, but a friend suggested I give it a try. I don't want to give anything away, so all I'll say is that this is more of an "old school suspense/thriller". If you are a high-speed action junky, this is not the book for you. If, however, you like "old school" Hitchcock type thrillers with a religious angle, you will really enjoy Margaret's Ark. I surely did.
