Mackenzie Allen Phillips' youngest daughter, Missy, has been abducted during a family vacation, and evidence that she may have been brutally murdered is found in an abandoned shack deep in the Oregon wilderness. Four years later, in this midst of his great sadness, Mack receives a suspicious note, apparently from God, inviting him back to that shack for a weekend. Against his better judgment he arrives at the shack one wintry afternoon and walks back into his darkest nightmare. What he finds there will change his life forever.

When my son passed away eight years ago, after some time of grieving it was recommended I read this book as a way to bring me to God and alleviate my grief. I had heard many good things but I was afraid - though I never really understood why. I found my way to God about five years ago and have had many encounters with him in my grieving process. I recently put The Shack on my Audible wish list and after seeing the trailer for the upcoming movie I knew it was time to "read" the book. I have never experienced such a profoundly positive effect from any piece of literature except for maybe the Bible. My eyes, mind, heart and soul are forever changed - I so look forward to continue growing in my relationship with God, Jesus and "Sarayu". Thank you - thoroughly enjoyed!
