A Message From God
Will The World Listen
Do you not have to be religious to enjoy this novel.
Three children in Croatia, Anna, Elizabeta, and Josip, receive visitations from The Lords Mother, Mary. They continued to commune with her through adulthood. Anna, the only one to know the full details, is commanded to deliver 7 prophesies, known as the Marian Prophesies or The Prophecies of Valselo, to God's messenger, Father Mark McKenzie. Father McKenzie has known of these children and made pilgrimages to Croatia. He was unaware of his part in the prophesy until contacted by Anna.
Four childhood friends are in Vegas for a good time bachelorette party. They have all led different lives and have drifted apart in some ways. Two are hiding huge secrets, one is a reporter and will be used by God, and one has a very unhappy life with a former teacher falsely accused of molestation.
Their lives are about to take an unexpected turn, as are the lives of everyone in the world, as God's messages unfold. They will be at the right place at the right time all according to God's plan. The first miracle message is a world-wide snow. But a snow as no other has ever appeared, which begins at the precise time all over the world.
CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, AND DEVELOPMENT:
The Daugther's characters are very believable and are portrayed as normal people. Bernadette is a reporter and married to atheist Glen; Marlo is a renowned fashion model, Tina is married to a depressed, abusive, and possibly mentally ill, former teacher accused falsely of molestation, and Laci is engaged to Detective Joe Corello. Joe is investigating serial murders of sixteen-year-old girls while Laci is celebrating their coming marriage in Vegas. Each character has emotional and life struggles of their own. Each will have to come to terms with their life and decide which path to follow as the authors weave this wonderful tale. Every soul on earth will stand before God; will they heed his message?
The character development was very good and the plotting and pacing was well done. The authors had many threads in this story and wove them into a cohesive tale along with twists and turns that will hold your interest throughout the novel. The authors kept me reading long into the night. What an ending, my mouth fell open; what an unexpected ending to this novel! I am immediately going to purchase book 1, Left At The Altar.
You do not need to have an interest in religion or be religious to enjoy this novel. Nor is it necessary to read book 1 first, it is a stand alone novel. It was very good book and I would recommend this book to anyone that likes an intriguing story line with twists and turns. The premise could very well happen to us at any time if God decides to give us one more chance.
I received this book from Readingalley in return for an honest book review.
Book reviews of any novel are dependent on the book review author's opinion; book reviews on line and on my blog, are my opinion.
