If the biblical plagues of Egypt truly happened—could they happen again—on a global scale? Two years after vanishing into the Sudanese desert, Professor Harold McCabe comes stumbling out of the sands, but he dies before he can tell his story. Then an autopsy uncovers a bizarre corruption: someone had begun to mummify the professor's body—while he was still alive. Subsequently, the medical team who had performed the man's autopsy has fallen ill with an unknown disease. Fearing the worst, a colleague of the professor reaches out to Painter Crowe, the director of Sigma Force. The call is urgent, for Professor McCabe had vanished into the desert while searching for proof of the ten plagues of Moses.

In her gripping debut novel, Lucy Atkins takes us on one woman's journey to the beautiful and rugged Pacific Northwest to discover the dark secrets of her family's past so she can understand and accept herself. Kal McKenzie was never close to her mother, Elena, whose coldness toward her spoiled any chance of a good relationship. When Elena dies of cancer, Kal feels forlorn: How do you mourn a mother who, inexplicably, just didn't seem to love you?

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

The ending was somewhat, well really unbelievable ,but think as previously noted the Lifetime Movie comparison.

Was Blind Faith worth the listening time?

yes it was worth listening to. The book was entertaining which helped reduce the strain of long drives. It definitely will not win any awards for fine literature but it does have its place for when you just want " a story"- think Lifetime Movies. One disappointment was the use of made up Adirondack places/names. It would have been nice to have used some "real" mountain names.

What about the narrator’s performance did you like?

narrator's voice was very relaxing and i was easily able to get into a deep state of relaxation by following her instructions.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

It is not a book to listen to all in one sitting. I listened to two meditations in one sitting. I think that if I had listened to all at once that I would have been asleep during the last meditation and not have gained as much benefit from it as I could. This book is going to be part of an ongoing practice of meditation and be returned to over and over again.
