Some say the great mystery of how one can live in two worlds at once died with Thomas Hunter many years ago. Still others that the gateway to that greater reality was and is only the stuff of dreams. They are wrong. In the small town of Eden, Utah, a blind girl named Rachelle Matthews is about to find out just how wrong.

It was supposed to be a harmless camping trip. Six wayward teenagers who'd run into trouble with the law, and their court-appointed guardians, Sara and Martin Randhurst. Three nights on a small, deserted island off of Michigan's upper peninsula. A time to bond, to learn, to heal. Then Martin told a campfire story about the island's history. Of the old civil war prison hidden in there, and the starving confederate soldiers who resorted to cannibalism to stay alive. Everyone thought it was funny. They even laughed when Martin pretended to be dragged off into the woods.

I chose this rating because he always does a great job at storytelling. I love his narrator, he pronounce a few words differently but I just smile as I have listened to him in several books now. If you enjoy sci-fi there is no better writer.

A journey into the deepest, darkest jungles of the Venezuelan Amazon...and a primeval place and time that mankind was never meant to exist in. Ben Cartwright, former soldier, home to mourn the loss of his father, stumbles upon cryptic letters from the past between author Arthur Conan Doyle and his great-great-grandfather who vanished while exploring the Amazon jungle in 1908. Amazingly, these letters lead Ben to believe that his ancestor’s expedition was the basis for Doyle’s fantastical tale of a lost world inhabited by long-extinct creatures.

I have read all but 2 of his books and they keep getting better I also love his narrator even though he uses a few funny words. His main characters are always military or ex-military a unimaginably strong man, someone who you know you can completely count on that is so rare these days.

The spellbinding story of Warren Harlan Pease, a young U.S. Army sniper freshly returned from the Iraq War to his native New Hampshire. This extraordinary work of compassion and healing grace combines the themes of religion, war and poetry in a way that is wholly original, and unforgettable. It will resonate with skeptics and believers, be shared and discussed between friends and among families.

This isn't a book for the happily comfortable. This is a book for the restless Jesus lover, the long suffering disciple, the openhearted believer. Be forewarned. The challenges inside are designed to unsettle you as well as provide practical suggestions for thriving on the narrow road, even if trouble is your travel companion.

I am disabled and live with horrible chronic pain that even pain meds can’t touch, so obviously I deal with great loss and depression and this book came to me exactly when I needed it, the author touched on every emotion and pain I struggle with as a child of God expelling the myth that if you are saved you should never experience pain or suffering and that Jesus is there even when he falls silent in the valleys of our lives, and reminding me see my father in the wonders all around me. I would recommend this book to everyone, saved or unsaved, healthy or sick, deep connection with Jesus or have not yet found that all consuming love. It definitely falls in my top ten favorite books ever.

Fifteen-year-old Jen suffered multiple skull fractures and severe brain trauma and was not expected to survive the night. But against all odds, she did. As she lingered in a coma, doctors warned that if Jen ever woke up, she would be cursing and screaming in confusion due to her brain injuries. Instead, after five weeks she opened her eyes and began praying and praising God.
