I'm a Christian who doesn't read much Christian lit. It is usually trite, overwrought, predictable, and preachy. This is none of those. It discusses God and miracles without any of the need to smack you over the head. The characters were real, intricate, and well written. The author knew these people. They had their own views and perceptions. They were written with insight and subtlety. I cared for all of them, even the secondary characters. Too much of modern fiction is story driven so that the people that populate them are ever changing to fit the plot. This was character driven. The story went where the characters did. Don't get me wrong, it's not slow or a character study, it is full of happenings, all of which made sense because the characters made sense. I enjoyed the three different responses to healing miracles. I liked that two were slight variations with the third as a total contrast. I liked the exploration of faith. I liked the exploration of the purpose of miracles. Is it the physical healing that is important? Or the faith of the healer and the healed? Perhaps it is the bestowing of gifts by a benevolent God, a kind of reward? All thought provoking questions.

Then I got to the last chapter. Suddenly, the characters weren't remaining faithful to who they were. They suddenly and without much explanation and no hints, were totally different people. They didn't grow and change with or in response to events. They just did a 180 and went the other way. And I felt like I'd been punched. I had been really interested to see how these three people would effect each other. I wanted to explore what happens when three differing beliefs come into contact. It would have been interesting to see how the lives of the three could be healed by each other. Not in a flash by the laying on of hands, but as a response to extraordinary situations. But it needed to grow organically. Instead we are given the briefest of glimpses at their now mingled lives all tied up in a nice bow. It didn't make sense and it was very disappointing. If I had not read that last chapter, this would be a five star review, even though I wouldn't have a resolution (which might have been interesting). I understand why the author felt he needed a resolution, but it's as if he got lost. He just didn't know what kind of resolution, so he gave us a campfire song. Even with waiting a couple weeks after finishing the book to review, I still find myself disappointed. I can't say I don't recommend this book, it has a lot going for it, but I just wish it didn't have that last chapter. I hope the author someday revises this so that the characters stay true to who they are, but until then 3 stars is the most I can do.

I could not put this book down until I finished it -- well, except for the going to work and going to bed part. But other than that, I was reading The Two Crosses.

I would characterize this work as being something like "Stephen King meets Frank Peretti." I suppose it could be classified as Christian fiction, but only because there are characters in the book who believe in God, and have at least some background with going to church growing up. It is definitely not preachy, and not trying to convert anyone. And not every character turns out to be who they seem to be at the beginning.

It could just as easily fall into one of several other genres, but I kind of like the Stephen King analogy best, because most of you will know what that means.

If you love being jarred awake at 1 a.m. by an unexpected twist in your book, this one will not disappoint. The end is one huge BANG! Leaving you both wanting more, and realizing there could not be a different ending.

I'm very glad to know that I got the book after the Epilogue was removed by the author, and therefore got that BANG! It left me staring off into space for a full couple of minutes, just processing it all and letting it sink in that the book had ended.

If I were to have to find a flaw, it would be that Connor's character is always written in the present tense. I understand that the author wants us to make a complete break from the other characters when we read about Connor, but sometimes the tenses were not consistent, and being pretty picky about grammar, I found that distracting. But that's really the only thing I can find fault with.

I would recommend this book to anyone who likes fiction reads. There is plenty in there to think about. Bare minimum of language, and no steamy scenes. Would be a good book for just about any age beyond 13 I think. And would provide much to discuss if several family members read it and talked about it from their various perspectives.

Enjoy this page turner!
