My first reaction to Nashville Skyline, my gut response, was that I didn¿t like it at all. After becoming very acquainted with the substantial blessings of the main character, Harvard educated Dr. Gabe Rutherford; it is maddening to see him treat them with such carelessness. I think however that to illicit such a visceral emotional response from the reader is prima fascia evidence of a fine, well written story. The journey through loss, acceptance, and redemption, seasoned with love, anger and regret, ultimately creates a mixture and taste that is immediately identified. Often times the gravity of an event in one¿s life is so great that it determines the shape of that artist`s work. The strength needed to acknowledge and use that gravity to propel a story, is quite extraordinary. When that event is a loved one¿s suicide, the strength needed is almost unfathomable. Ultimately, I believe that Dr. Fesmire was able to imbue his main character Dr. Rutherford with that same strength that leads to acceptance and faith.
