The Tinderbox by Beverly Lewis
Audio Review Notes:
“I sink in deep mire, where there is no standing: I am come into deep waters, where the floods overflow me.”
1 John 1:9
“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”
“And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;
And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.”
“In thee, O Lord, do I put my trust; let me never be ashamed: deliver me in thy righteousness.
Bow down thine ear to me; deliver me speedily: be thou my strong rock, for an house of defence to save me.”
“He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?”
WOW! What a read! Beverly Lewis still's got it, not that she'll ever loose it but man what a unique and captivating plot this book has! And the ending! WOW! I can't wait for the conclusion to this story she's got me totally hooked! For starters I have ALWAYS loved and still love Ella Mae the Wise Woman of Hickory Hollow, and that leads me to say I've always LOVED Hickory Hollow. So returning there is always a treat for me! These chatacters are dear to my heart and I enjoyed how Beverly jumps from one character's percpective to the next and how it kept me in the loop so to speak on what each individual is thinking. And the twists! WOW! I also LOVE the amount of scripture and spiritual insights Beverly weaves through out, I know of one message in particular where Sylvia's mom, Rhoda expresses her inability to carry the weight of a problem and so gives it The Lord to carry, I really loved the way it's expressed and written and REALLY needed this message at the time! Personally I'm not fond of Sylie's beau at this time and I can't wait to see where Beverly takes that thread and oh man, let me just say that this book ends with a bit of a mushroom cloud twisty shocking moment that has left me longing for September's release!
Songs that I think fit this book are: He Knows Jeremy Camp, Carry Me Josh Wilson, and Glow In The Dark Jason Gray
*I received a copy of this book from Bethany House for the purpose of reviewing it. This in no way affected my opinion and the above are my true thoughts and feelings about "The Tinderbox"
