Days Of The Meek

Overview

"There was nothing miraculous about me," recalls Victor Meeks, a disillusioned young man who-as far as he's concerned-is more than two decades overdue for the morgue. Twenty-two years earlier, the spectacular overcoming of a childhood illness transformed Victor's life into a worldwide (and short lived) phenomenon, instilling him with the notion that he was somehow special. Coming to terms with this apparent lie has since earned Victor a lifetime of failures, ultimately costing him his family, his friends, and the love of his life, Celeste.

More About This Book

Overview

"There was nothing miraculous about me," recalls Victor Meeks, a disillusioned young man who-as far as he's concerned-is more than two decades overdue for the morgue. Twenty-two years earlier, the spectacular overcoming of a childhood illness transformed Victor's life into a worldwide (and short lived) phenomenon, instilling him with the notion that he was somehow special. Coming to terms with this apparent lie has since earned Victor a lifetime of failures, ultimately costing him his family, his friends, and the love of his life, Celeste. Accompanied by his only friend, Wix-a quirky young man with a tragic history-Victor settles into an existence of complacency, enlivened only by the notion that a premature death might still claim his life in the end. But when Victor and Wix are reunited with Ralph T. Willbury-a mysterious individual from their mutually repressed pasts-the rusty gears of idling lives are spurred into motion, setting off a series of events that thrust all of Victor's failures-past and present-into one chaotic mix. Days of the Meek is a story about faith and hope, triumph and failure, and the idea that maybe-just maybe-miracles are possible after all.
