I love the feel of a book in my hands, but even more, I love when I'm no longer aware that I'm reading and it's as if I have climbed between the covers of the book and am living there.
There are very few books that do that for me. Very, very few. Though I love a lot of books, and many of them I have read and reread often, it takes a special book for me to feel so connected.
When The Imposter arrived earlier this week I placed it on the stand beside my chair in the living room thinking I would read a few chapters after dinner and before bedtime.
Later that evening I settled in to read a few chapters. It wasn't long before I was no longer aware that I was sitting in my favorite chair. Instead I found myself in Stoney Ridge on a moss farm. Though there was heartache, and even bigger trouble brewing there was a certain calmness throughout. I really loved the faith portrayed in this book and how it became alive and real for the characters.
By the end of the book I felt refreshed, encouraged, and excited to be serving a wonderful God who cares for His children and gives peace even in the middle of the storm.
Disclaimer: I was not asked to review this book. I simply wanted to share with you all the latest great read I had, and hope you get to enjoy it too!
