It is that time again. I have just finished “Every Waking Moment,” written by Chris Fabry, and furnished to me by Tyndale House Publishers through http://www.netgalley.com, in exchange for truthful feedback.
The story started out with two men who are at an Arizona retirement community to videotape the remembrances of the the people who live there. As the plot progressed, I felt the characters reaching out to grab me, pulling me into the community, especially Treha, the janitor who has a special gift for freeing those trapped within the confines of a body that no longer allows them to communicate, but has no knowledge of her own past or the mysterious condition she was born with. It seems, however, that every individual in the novel possess an answer to each question she has. It is intriguing to follow her on this journey. I give this book five out of five stars, with two caveats. One, the last few chapters should be savored in private, unless you are comfortable with strangers watching you as tears course down your cheeks. Two, I was left wanting to know more about what happens next. This tale has no objectionable content, illustrates several points of scripture beautifully, and is recommended for readers age twelve and up. Mr. Fabry, please write a sequel! Until we meet again…
