Beyond the Storm Publisher's Summary

After a tornado rips through her town, store owner Abigail comes across a piece of fabric from a wedding dress among the devastation. Abigail is moved to start collecting other swatches of fabric she finds - her neighbor’s kitchen curtains, a man’s necktie, a dog’s bed - which she stashes in shopping bags. As she pursues her seemingly absurd quest, horrible realities spark the question, “What kind of a God would allow such tragedy?” As she struggles to reconcile her right to happiness amidst the destruction, Abigail begins piecing together a patchwork quilt from the salvaged fabric in hopes it will bring some peace. But a new relationship with Justin, a contractor, may require too much of her fragile heart. Will her pain and questions of faith give way to the courage to love?

    • Jenny's review

    • By Jenny's review A very interesting and very emotional read for sure. Allot of heart went into the writing of Along the Watchtower a story about a soldier who has to decide between truth or fantasy. There’s some language to watch out for but otherwise a very good book. First Lieutenant Frederick Williams aka Freddie finds himself in the fight for his mind after his unit was blown up by a roadside bomb. Not only does he have to fight to heal physically but mentally as well he finds himself wanting to stay in his fantasy world. A wold. where he’s whole and can move around and he learns that he has to complete a 30day quest before he can be king and save his kingdom. During his quest he meets the beautiful gardener Rebecca whom he comes to realize helps him get through some of his trials. Then in the real world he meets Becky who’s in charge of his physical therapy or PT and she seems to be the light he so desperately needs in the darkness, especially after he’s lost both parents and one sibling as well as one missing. Both worlds seem to run parallel and Freddie can’t almost tell the difference between them and that’s went he wants to give up and let the demons win or will he choose life? I was given Along the Watchtower for my honest review! on 09-15-15
