They call it Paradise - an inner-city danger zone, starved of resources, starved of hope; run-down housing, run-down lives. Then a miracle happens. A dying boy is healed by the touch of a charismatic young man. And that's only the beginning. Richard brings light into the darkest places.
I normally don’t purchase a book unless it has been thoroughly reviewed. I made an exception for this book and was reminded why I insist on reviews. While the characters are well developed that is the only redeeming feature of the book. The whole point of the story seems to be to convince the reader that humans are frail, fallible creatures that live inevitable lives. Half way through the book I considered asking for a refund but kept listening believing that it had to get better. It didn’t.
