Gates' characters, young or old or neither, are well educated, broadly knowledgeable, often creative, and variously accomplished, whether as a doctor or a composer, an academic or a journalist. And every one of them carries a full supply of the human condition: parents in assisted-living - or assisted-dying - facilities, too many or too few people in their families and marriages, the ties that bind a sometimes messy knot, age an implacable foe, impulses pulling them away from comfort into distraction or catastrophe.
Ever struggle with doubt? It's in the moments that life is the toughest that we find out who we are and what we believe in.
924 Miles tells the story of a man searching for God while trying to figure out what life is all about. It explores the true purpose of life, the grace of God, and the connection between the two. Gates writes with complete vulnerability and transparency in order to convey a message we all need to hear. He writes from the heart. It will make you cry, laugh, and ultimately examine your purpose in life; many are calling 924 Miles a must-listen book! Foreword by Daniel Ryan Day, author of 10 Days Without.
If the measure of a good book is its afterburn, Access Denied is a great book. Thought-provoking, honest, extraordinary, revealing. A damning indictment of the child support agency and family courts. A quite extraordinary true story. He had a daughter for seven years.... Then found out she wasn't his.... You won't believe what happens next!
