Though we usually review children’s books, I like to toss in something helpful for big people upon occasion.
To the Moon and Back by Kathi Macias is a story of family, faith and forgiveness.
Rachel’s life has changed drastically since the accident that made her husband a semi-invalid. Nothing, however, could have prepared her for the forgetfulness, fear and confusion that seem to happen more and more often. Their daughter, Lilly, lives hours away and is dealing with her own issues. As the darkness threatens to overwhelm them all, they must seek the unconditional love of the One who will never fail them. But how?
Macias has always been one of my favorite Christian authors. It’s been way too long since I’ve read one of her books. When we reconnected on Facebook, she sent me a copy of her latest novel that deals with the effects of Alzheimer’s on a small family already struggling with other issues.
The author has a way of writing the most heartwarming stories. It’s rare I don’t cry somewhere along the line. I’ve always loved how she writes in conversations with God and shows the characters’ journeys back to Christ in realistic ways. One can’t help but be uplifted right along with her characters. Reading To the Moon and Back made me realize how much I’ve missed Macias’ writing. I’ll definitely need to add more of her stories into my reading schedule this year.
I received a digital copy of this book from the author. This review contains my honest opinions, which I have not been compensated for in any way.
