I read this book just prior to and during hurricane Irene. It made me think about how ill prepared I was for disaster and I immediately ran out and purchased bottled water. LOL.
Seriously, as Christian fiction, it did little for me and I was unmoved. I found the book to be lacking in any true and lasting Christian message. It didn't help that most of the main characters were totally unlikeable, particularly the daughter.
I read the book as part of my Christian fiction book club. While several of the members expresses positive opinions regarding the offering, I was left cold.
Would not recommend.
