Publisher's Summary

Mackenzie Allen Phillips' youngest daughter, Missy, has been abducted during a family vacation, and evidence that she may have been brutally murdered is found in an abandoned shack deep in the Oregon wilderness. Four years later, in this midst of his great sadness, Mack receives a suspicious note, apparently from God, inviting him back to that shack for a weekend. Against his better judgment he arrives at the shack one wintry afternoon and walks back into his darkest nightmare. What he finds there will change his life forever.

Written for the deeply religious

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Very religious people.


What was most disappointing about William P. Young’s story?

I felt like I was being preached to. I don't mind reading spiritually themed books, but this was over the top. I was not moved, sympathetic or intrigued. Just annoyed. It was dull and long-winded. I was surprised because the ratings and reviews did not even hint at the fact that this book was so incredibly heavy-handed on the god stuff. From the reviews and the synopsis I expected a spiritual theme but certainly not the sermon on the mount that it turned out to be.


Any additional comments?

If you are a person of deep faith and religion then you will probably enjoy this book much better than I. If you are not a believer or just a light believer, then you probably won't.... unless you like 9hrs of being preached to.

Healing all the guilt and shame...

I lived 40+ years with Lutheran guilt that clouded my relation with God. Amazing how one fable can crack that mile thick layer of shame and guilt!!
