Book Review: Life Everlasting
In Life Everlasting, Alexia Lindale is a lawyer representing Rena Richardson, whose husband's life hangs by a thread as he lingers in a coma. In her heart, Rena would like to see him dead to protect her secrets, while his brother wouldn't mind gaining control of the family empire after the death of Baxter. But Baxter has a surprise ally in Ted Morgan, a classically trained pianist/music minister. Along with her new-found faith, Alexia and Ted embark on a battle of prayer for Baxter's life. Alexia navigates her responsibilities to her client, her relationship with Ted, and her relationship with God in this legal tale.
The story was good. I could gather what I missed, which is the mark of great writing. I wish I had read the first book first, however, and I still plan to read it, even though I know the ending. Robert Whitlow is a great new author to me, and I look forward to reading his other books. He weaves faith into his stories without the story feeling like it was written for traditional homeschooling moms. As a mediocre musician, I loved the element that the classical piano added to the story.
First read the first book, which I believe is called Life Support. Then read this one. I think you'll enjoy it.
Thomas Nelson Publishers provided me with a free copy of this book as a part of their blogger program called BookSneeze.
