Overview

It is February of 2000, and Arthur and Valencia Todd and their twelve-year- old daughter, Lindsy, are living very happily—until Valencia receives a life- changing phone call. Life deals her a crisis that requires a miracle of biblical proportion.

Six months later, Valencia’s life is still in shambles. As she walks on a path lined with grief, frustration, illness, and loneliness, Valencia is too frightened to seek help from doctors, on whom she quietly blames her mother’s premature death. As she prays for answers, nothing seems to heal her persistent medical condition, prompting Valencia to plummet down a dark tunnel of despair. Desperate for answers, Valencia draws inspiration from the worn pages of her mother’s Bible, fueled by an unyielding determination to find healing. But three years later, as she is led to the doors of a holistic center where she believes she will finally be helped, Valencia helplessly watches as her life disintegrates once again—completely unaware that the Holy Spirit is waiting to comfort her.

’Til the Last Drop is the inspirational story of one woman’s journey to the truth as she learns to listen to her heart, never give up, and, above all, trust in God.

'Til The Last Drop by Marquis Boone is truly a work of literary art. Mixing three genres of modern literature(dramatic novel, self-help, and religious inspiration) into one epic story is nothing short of a key-stroke of genius. The characters are so genuine you're enthralled into their lives making it nearly impossible not to make an emotional connection. The plot is completely gut-wrenching; Pulling away from the book feels dreadfully wrong.

"Til the Last Drop" by Author Marquis Boone! Only one word describes my experience as I read through these pages...AMAZING! The way that this Author paints a picture of what is taking place in the Heavens as we navigate through the pages of our lives is breathtaking! To be reminded that we are "Never Alone", regardless of what challenges we face in life, is awe-inspiring!! I highly recommend this Book to everyone!

There are times when stories that are short and to the point can truly get to the point better than a longer story would. And Marquis Boone has certainly accomplished this in his updated retelling of a dramatic healing featured in the Bible. This is a story that is clean (with the exception of one little word that was honestly not offensive), and it is fast-paced. I never found myself getting bored, and it should cause you to think, if nothing else. About three chapters into the book, I recognized the story from the Bible--the woman with the issue of blood. I was thoroughly impressed as the author told a compelling story of a girl who struggled with something that medical science could not fix. I was greatly intrigued to read the conversation in heaven, and something truly stood out to me. It had never occurred to me that God is waiting to help us, and we don't call upon Him. Although I am not God, I felt that this story demonstrated the pathos that God experiences when His children do not call on Him, and He has to watch them suffer. He will never force Himself on anyone, and all too often, we have to get to the end of ourselves before we remember to call on him.  The story that is featured in the Gospels never gives us a glimpse into the everyday life of this woman and what her illness may have cost her. I knew that God was using this illness to draw to woman to Himself, but this book depicted that aspect of the story in a relatable way. It is possible that not all the theology is one hundred percent correct--especially concerning the conversation in heaven--but I honestly don't believe the author is writing a theological treatise. He is writing a story to make us consider a story that only covers a few verses in the Bible. He is asking us to consider our spiritual condition and whether we are relying on Him in all things. Have we strayed, or are we as close or closer than when we first believed? Have circumstances made us question His love and guidance? Jump in and read a book that will provide hope and even relief.  This is a book that I would recommend to anyone who has experienced suffering and even questioned the existence of God. This is a book that will minister to your soul if you are saved and just may cause you to consider God if you're not. I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.

There's a lot I can say about this impressive work of literature. I'll start by expressing how amazing the cover design is. When I first saw it, immediately, I was captivated. Well designed covers will effortlessly intrigue grasp an individual's interest. The cover of Til the Last Drop did exactly that. Aside from the cover, the content inside of the book is simply astounding. Pastor Boone did what most authors fail at doing- conveying a message that ANY audience can read, and relate to. Furthermore, the manner in which he modernized the story of the woman with the issue of  blood was incredible. He masterfully took an uncommon approach to tell a familiar story without dumbing down its message. Being successful at retelling such a popular and delicate story can be implausible; but Boone did it- and did it exceptionally well might I add. I strongly recommend this book be read by everyone- particularly those whose faith is frustrated. This book will revive your faith, restore your trust in God, and inspire you to believe that you can, and will make it Til the Last Drop. Don't forfeit yourself the opportunity to be blessed. Purchase this book as soon as today.

This book wasn’t very long, but, boy did it pack a punch. It was truly amazing! GOD is there for you even when you aren’t asking him to be, he is always watching out for you, no matter what. This is the story of Valencia and her journey with a medical problem. She goes through a lot, because of this. GOD hears her cries, though, even when she doesn’t realize it. He sends interceders on her part to help her through her problems. She loses a lot on this journey, including her marriage. GOD continually sends people to help Valencia on her journey, and Valencia finally realizes she needs to fully rely on GOD for everything. The ending will surprise you. There really wasn’t anything I didn’t like about this book, maybe that it was short, but that didn’t take away from this book at all. Marquis was able to deliver an amazing message without a lot of unnecessary words and dialogue. This book will truly bless anyone who reads it, whether they are a new Christian or a long time Follower of GOD. Great job, I was blessed to read this book.

This is one book I could not put down! WOW is the best way to describe this story! I especially love the flow and compassionate conversation between the Father and the Son reminding us that Jesus is always busy on our behalf. "Til the Last Drop" definitely pulls the reader in through reflection of his own life and provides a narrative summation of how God never leaves us even during times when we think we are all alone or think God does not hear us. This is a must read book, is great for book club reading, and is appropriate for pre-teen readers.
