Alvis West has done for the unborn what Harriet Beecher Stowe did for American slaves-revealed their plight and personified them as individuals made in God's image. This is accomplished through the life of Euell Edwards, a lovable character who made a difference in the lives of others. His struggles reveal the human condition that made him determined to overcome obstacles, obtain an education, encounter the culture, and seek truth. His life is reminiscent of fictitious characters such as Uncle Tom and George Bailey, as well as real life movers and shakers such as William Wilberforce and Dr. D. James Kennedy. The story takes the reader though Euell's formative years and then focuses on the time period from high school graduation through the first year of college. One Life is full of life, hope, faith, charity, struggles, action, success, failures, romance, disappointments, friendships, the clash of world and life views or paradigms, and surprises. It is the kind of book one should read before going off to college, when in college, and for years after the college experience in order to be reminded of the idealism of youth, and the far reaching significance of one life.
