This is a book where you aren't sure where it is going, but you can't put it down! I ended up finishing it in 2 sittings, ONLY because I was too tired to do it in one! Like the weather, the plot twists and turns, providing new drama for the characters to overcome and to show their true selves and faith. It was a very interesting device- having been through Hurricane Katrina and no power for 21 days, and no media for 5 days, I could relate to how the characters have no idea of what is happening in the 'outside' world and how banding together is their best bet of survival. There are times when I think God sends natural disasters to test just that- our faith in him, each other and to strengthen those bonds. Another winner from Erin, you'll want to read this one as soon as you can, as I'm sure movie rights will not be far behind!

    Entertaining

    The book was interesting but obviously religious. The characters were a bit flat but this was a new story.

    Kept My Interest ... but ...

    This was one of my $1.99 deals. I thought the premise was good but it ended up being kind of predictable. Still, I didn't put it down once I started reading it, so that must mean something. I found the descriptions of the accident and the storm to go on a little long -- I believe the author was really trying to paint a picture for the reader, but it felt like she was trying to sell a movie script.

    Plot: I really enjoyed the plot of this book. It was nothing like I've ever read before. I found it to be creative and intriguing. There were twists and turns that I didn't expect and an interesting spiritual level.

    Characters: The way the characters interacted and relied on each other was great. Every action by one character effected the actions of others. It all came together in an intricate web of character design.

    Themes: This book has several themes in it including forgiveness, selfishness, and redemption. All of the themes work together to create a spiritual atmosphere in the story.

    Emotion: There wasn't a lot of emotion in this book. It was very fast paced, but nothing that was engaging emotionally.

    Overall: I really enjoyed this book. It was an extremely fast read while still having a lot of story to it. I had no idea what was going yo happen next and there were so many twists that kept me on my toes. The spiritual aspect wasn't overpowering or a turn off. It gave a new depth to the story line.

    ---I received this book for free from the publisher for this review.---
