  I am so excited for this review as I not only received a copy of this book for myself to review from Thomas Nelson Publishers courtesy of BookSneeze but I also received a copy to giveaway to one of my readers, I will pick a winner using random.org. Details after my review below. 

    First of all this book's cover is absolutely beautiful, and tranquil. Andy Andrews gave it his all with this Gem. This book is normally not my cup of tea, I am not into war stories per say, but this book teaches us about second chances and the choices we make between right and wrong. I felt the depth of the characters souls and the torment the characters faced when facing a monumental choice. I know the feeling when God tugs at your heart strings, when you would like to make one choice but you hear God telling you to make another. Do you ever wish you were given a second chance to make things right, I know I do. Losing someone you love before mending a broken relaitionship can leave you guilt stricken and always wondering what if? Do your beliefs sway you one way or the other about what you should do when you come upon a situation where someone needs your help.
   This book will show you what others did when faced with that exact position in their life, it will make you think about what happens if you make the wrong choice or if you follow God's path and make the right one.

   If you would like to read a truly thought provoking book and listen to what God speaks to others when faced with choices in the path of life than this is the book for you.
