Why did I pick this book: I participated in the blog tour hosted by Cedar Fort. (I received a copy of this book for review purposes.)
Did I enjoy this book: I loved it. I couldn’t put it down.
It was an unusual story about an adopted boy who discovers he has the gift of healing. The tale developed into a criminal mystery that led the main character into a dangerous riddle of lies and murder.
It was well-written, has nicely developed characters, and a unpredictable plot. The conflicts were both internal and external. Several characters had compelling issues to resolve and each was wrapped up by the end of the story. I couldn’t find any unresolved questions or head scratching moments. The story flowed easily from cover to cover.
Would I recommend it: I think this book offers a broad appeal to readers who enjoy religious books, fantasy, murder mysteries, and even young adult. I think there’s something for everyone in this story. I plan to recommend it to our book group and then I’d definitely want to re-read it.
About the book – from Goodreads: Abandoned in a graveyard and a mother who was never found–that’s all Stone Molony knows about his birth. But now he needs to know more. A tragic accident has awakened a powerful gift inside him that changes everything. As the town stirs up around him, Stone journeys through corruption, racism, and violence to uncover the truth about his past.
About the author: Brock Booher grew up on a farm in rural Kentucky, the fourth of ten children, where he learned to work hard, use his imagination, and believe in himself. He left the farm to pursue the friendly skies as a pilot, and currently flies for a major US carrier. A dedicated husband and father of six children, he began writing out of sheer arrogance, but the writing craft quickly humbled him. During that process, he discovered that he enjoyed writing because it is an endeavor that can never quite be mastered. He still gladly struggles everyday to improve his writing and storytelling skills.
