Seth Jacobs has it all - a successful business, a mansion in greater Boston, a beautiful wife and three loving children. Yet, in a series of events beyond his control Seth loses everything, including his health. Struggling to find some understanding amidst his pain, Seth's faith is challenged further by his wife Maria, who betrays him, and even his friends, who suggest that perhaps God has his reasons for inflicting so much suffering upon him.
At the end of his rope, Seth meets Lucille O'Hanlon, a young yet wise social worker who tries to help him realize the spiritual solution he so desperately seeks. Lucille also begins to fill the void left by Seth's losses, and as they grow closer together, he must finally determine if their relationship is of God's will or just his own.
Seth questions God as we all do in times of hardship. With Lucille's help, he finally receives an unexpected answer to his despair and is faced with decisions that will determine the new path his life takes. A modern-day story based on the Book of Job, The Faithful One inspires us all to have a little faith no matter what.
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes, the characters came alive and I wanted to see (hear) what happened next.
What did you like best about this story?
A bible story that we often take for granted or think doesn't fit today that is set in current times became relevant to me that I instantly related to. I could feel the pain, dispair and then joy. I felt like I had gone through the journey with Seth.
Have you listened to any of Angel Clark’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Any additional comments?
After I listened to the audio format I purchased the paperback for my library. A must have!!!
