How would you respond if someone offered you a pill that could cure your addiction instantly?
She dropped the envelope in the offering plate. The note inside it read, “May the Lord forgive me, I should have done this long ago. Whoever opens this, please give it to the pastor. He’ll know what to do. Tell him it will cure alcoholics, and I want everyone to have it. Tell him if they ever drink again, the urge will return stronger than ever. I used to think there was a way to fix that too, but now I know there isn’t. Anyway, this will cure them so long as they never drink another drop.”

The Last Night of Alton Webber (7 Hours series) What a fantastic twist to the Seven Hour series of books! I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of this book–the new approach to the character of Thomas Constant, the personalities of each of the characters as the storyline developed, and the surprise of coming up to the last moments of Alton Webber. I believe my favorite line of the book was when Thomas spoke to Alton, “Look how old you are.” The conversation that followed was as if two old friends were conversing. Spell-binding!
Covenant of War (Lion of War Series) For any woman who thinks perhaps this set of stories might not interest her, I say don’t listen to that voice! These books are completely satisfying for those women who wish to experience the Bible with fresh eyes and in vivid detail.
Okay, I’m afraid of ghosts. And I have to tell you, after reading this story, I am still afraid of them. In fact, I might believe in their existence more than I did before I began the book. I must say, my thought so many times as I read the book was, “why would anyone want to spend the night in a building known to be ‘haunted’?” That said, I thoroughly enjoyed the story line. And I love the last line of the book… “it isn’t what happens when you die, it’s what happens when you live.” When you read the book, you’ll understand that line perfectly.
If you enjoy stories about the afterlife, you will truly enjoy reading this book. Mr. Parrish has done a wonderful job with the subject.

When I first started reading They Shall See God, I got a little bogged down in all the different characters. I had trouble remembering why we were talking about a particular one, but as the story progressed the characters took a definite shape along the story line and their purpose to the story became clear. Once I had that settled, I allowed myself to become immersed in the story.
Two women who had been best friends as little girls and had witnessed a terrible crime become linked again after 30 years of not seeing each other. The killer they testified against in their childhood is released from prison and returns to his hometown. Not long after his arrival, people who were witnesses to that old crime are being murdered in very strange scenarios. While the scenarios may have been weird, the suspense in the story was believable, which gave it a good balance.
