Seth Jacobs has it all…health, wealth, a beautiful wife and three children, a great career, a mansion in greater Boston…and in a series of reversals of fortune beyond his control, Seth loses it all. His friends, who suggest God has a reason for inflicting so much loss and pain upon him, challenge Seth’s faith. Suffering, he asks God, as we all do, “Why is this happening to me?” and receives an unexpected answer. A modern-day story based on the Bible’s Book of Job, The Faithful One inspires us all to have a little faith no matter what.

An amazing story! When life becomes one painful event after another, how can a person continue to believe God? The author tells a story that touches the soul of the reader. What would you do if life continued to spiral downward with no hope for the future? Would you blame yourself or others or even God? There is hope. Look for hope in each moment. This modern day Job story reminded me of all the blessings in my life. This is a story that I will read again and again. I received a copy of this story from the author and this is my personal honest opinion.

Michele Chynoweth is a very inspiring author!! “The Faithful One” is entirely different from the “The Peace Maker” and “The Runaway Prophet.” I loved all three and had recommended them to a lot of my friends and family. “The Faithful One” was amazing. I was on the edge of my seat reading this book the whole way through. I kept thinking can this get any worse, but of course with God all things are possible. Michele is such an awesome author where her words just grab you, and you just want to read and read and read to find out what’s next. “The Faithful One” is definitely a must read. Very inspiring!!

Reviewed by Michelle Robertson for Readers' Favorite Seth Jacobs grew up in a modest Jewish family that was one of many families to emigrate from Germany during the Nazi regime to the United States. Working hard to establish a successful life as entrepreneurs, Seth Jacob's mother and father opened up a deli underneath their small apartment. Seth wasn't spoiled with gifts and lavish things, but rather morals, education, and hard work. Seth began helping his father in the deli at a young age and soon found a passion for the culinary arts. Seth worked very hard, saving almost every penny he had to allow himself the privilege of paying for college himself, along with some help from his parents, a part time job, and an academic scholarship to Harvard University. Seth soon found himself enrolled in college, but falling in love with a beautiful Italian girl, Maria. Seth and Maria worked hard to pursue Seth's dream of becoming a restaurant owner and businessman, and soon their efforts and hard work paid off. Seth Jacobs was living the high life as a most successful entrepreneur. Seth had everything he could ever want. A beautiful wife, three children, and a multimillion-dollar business in the restaurant industry. He was living well. Seth did what he could to treat everyone with kindness and respect, but was it enough in the eyes of God? As the biblical quote goes, "The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away." Job 1:21. Read this modern day version of the biblical book of Job, and find out what happens to Seth Jacobs.  The Faithful One by Michele Chynoweth is an inspirational fictitious book based on a book of the Bible, Job. The book introduces readers to a modern day version of the Bible story of Job, which is often misunderstood because of its time period, and wording. The story plot, context, characters, and overall layout of the book itself are all simple and elegant. Readers wanting to gain more knowledge and understanding of the book of Job would do well reading this book. Readers who don't know the Biblical story will find, by reading this book, a story of rags to riches, and vice-versa. The book contains concepts of self-doubt, kindness, Catholic religion, Jewish religion, God, self-doubt, self-pity, anxiety, wealth, poverty and some others. This is a modern-day book filled with riches, mystery, scandal, and miracles. Author Michele Chynoweth write in a clear and concise way to help readers comprehend the message behind the biblical story. There is not a dull moment throughout this book. It is filled with so many different emotions, leaving a reader angry, sad, joyful, fearful and not wanting to put it down.
