Publisher's Summary

Anthony Spencer is egotistical, proud of being a self-made business success at the peak of his game, even though the cost of winning was painfully high. A cerebral hemorrhage leaves Tony comatose in a hospital ICU. He 'awakens' to find himself in a surreal world, a 'living' landscape that mirrors dimensions of his earthly life, from the beautiful to the corrupt. It is here that he has vivid interactions with others he assumes are projections of his own subconscious, but whose directions he follows nonetheless with the possibility that they might lead to authenticity and perhaps, redemption. The adventure draws Tony into deep relational entanglements where he is able to 'see' through the literal eyes and experiences of others, but is "blind" to the consequences of hiding his personal agenda and loss that emerge to war against the processes of healing and trust. Will this unexpected coalescing of events cause Tony to examine his life and realize he built a house of cards on the poisoned grounds of a broken heart? Will he also have the courage to make a critical choice that can undo a major injustice he set in motion before falling into a coma?

    Story
    "Great Follow-up To The Shack"
    If you could sum up Cross Roads in three words, what would they be?

    Entertaining, Inspirational, Fun


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Toss between Maggie and Tony - both are so believable


    What does Roger Mueller bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He brings all characters to life, including a boy with down's syndrome in which he kept in a real but dignified manner.


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

    Definitely. I listened whenever I had any free time, even if only 15 minutes. I loved this book and wished I didn't finish it.


    Any additional comments?

    This story will tickle your funny bone, bring you up, bring you down and overall leave you inspired and hopefully give you a better understanding of God's never ending love and place in your life.

    Story
    "life path challenges explored"

    Being at across road myself, I downloaded this book based on the reviews written by other audible listeners and was not disappointed with the emotionally intelligent way Wm.Paul Young paints the unravelling of Tony's psyche as he makes the journey toward his own demise. There are philosophical, psychological, social, moral and spiritual confrontations all the way. I was seeking a read like this to accompany my own inner reflections at a time of upheaval and change in my own life.

    However, as a sceptic of organised religion, I found the domination of Christian religious icons, that is God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit, difficult. The fact that these characters were depicted as ordinary people made it easier, but I just couldn't help thinking that the book would have an even wider appeal if Christianity wasn't so blatantly the dominating guiding spiritual force on this man's journey.

    "Major Disappointment- Nothing like The Shack"
    Any additional comments?

    This book is so much like The Shack and nothing like it at the same thing. Its about a JERK of a guy who as the reader you can't stand so you don't get pulled in. The Shack worked magic because it broke your heart and you cared about the guy. Also it seems to be taking a lot of the same descriptions of things as The Shack even used some of the same words.
    I was so excited to read this but it was a huge let down!

    This book reduced me to a pile of tears, and then the next moment had me laughing my head off, it's a powerhouse of emotional resonance...you are truly missing out on a great story if you don't experience this! WOW.
