I found this short novel to be a gripping drama as a young man is faced with a choice that could ruin his career, or perhaps destroy his soul, depending on what he decides. I read this quirky book in one sitting. Adrian is a character who you can root for, eventually.

This is an interesting novella, but for me, it's a little too religious. I highly enjoyed Gracie and the Preacher, another novel by T.L. Peters, which also deals with religion in the form of a wandering revival preacher, but I didn't feel the overbearing presence of religion in that novel, like I did in this one. While the sheer amount of religion brought up in the novel made it difficult for me to read, personally, I feel that many may find solace in this novella. Adrian's vision sets him on a course to read the entire book of "Numbers," from the Bible, aloud to strangers. His reactions to such a request are indeed very real, as many do ridicule Bible thumpers, and such a task is frowned upon in our society. As Adrian is not a believer, he tries to push the task off and forget about it on many occasions, wrapping himself up in his work at his law firm. However, as the story unfolds, he has a change of heart, based on the circumstances around him, and his entire life changes as he begins to search out ways to read the Bible to those around him. Personally, as I had difficulty with the religious aspect, I can only give this novel two stars.
