Overview

A little boy, beaten and left to die in an alley. A cop with a personal life out of control. When their worlds collide, God intervenes.

Detective Ellie Saunders's homicide investigation takes a dramatic turn when a young victim "wakes up" in the morgue. The child has no memory prior to his "rising" except walking with his father along a shiny road. Ellie likes dealing with facts. She'd rather leave all the God-talk to her father, a retired minister, and to her partner, Jesse, a former vice cop with an annoying habit of inserting himself into her life. But will the facts she follows puts Ellie's life in mortal danger? And will she finally allow God into her heart forever?

     Remarkable suspense-filled story of a woman's journey back to G

     Remarkable suspense-filled story of a woman's journey back to God and a little boy's journey back to life.   I love reading suspenseful books and The Rising has kept me guessing what was coming next with every page.  I was a pastor's wife and the fact that the cop in the story is a "PK" or "preacher's kid" was  very interesting to me.   I could certainly see why she might have felt that God was turning away from her as I learned more of the circumstances of her life.   I was fascinated with her maternal side as she grew more and more protective of the precious little "Johnny Doe".  I give this a 5-star rating.   It was the first book I had read by Lynn Chandler Willis but it will not be my last.   
    I received a free pdf copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.  All opinions expressed are my own.

    The Rising by Lynn C. Willis is a wonderful read. I enjoyed the mystery and the inspirational message. The story has everything needed to make a page turner, that you don't want to put down, Suspense, mystery and some colorful characters. As Ellie works to solve the crime she also has to face her past and solve issues that stand in the way of happiness. This is must read.
