"… in Your book all my days were recorded, even those which were purposed before they had come into being." —Psalm 139:16
Young Cameron Vaux’s mind is slipping. Memories of his wife, killed two years earlier in a car accident, are vanishing just as his dad predicted they would. Memories he knows he has to remember.
His father tells Cameron that to save his mind he must find "the book with all days in it" —the past and future record of every soul on earth.
When an obscure clue leads Cameron to a small central Oregon town, he meets enigmatic Taylor Stone, a possible guide to finding the book who seems to carry secrets far deeper than anyone imagines. Local hotshot TV personality Ann Bannister thinks the legend of the book is a farce, but she has her reasons to join Cameron’s search anyway. Finally, there is fanatical New Age guru Jason Judah, who will stop at nothing to find the book of days before Cameron does.
Acclaim for Book of Days:
"I devoured Book of Days in one sitting. It is an exciting but poignant novel about how truly important our memories and choices are to who we become. It's still resonating in my heart."

The Suspense Zone
James L. Rubart is a professional marketer, speaker, and writer. He serves on the board of the Northwest Christian Writers Association and lives with his wife and sons in Seattle, Washington.
In this supernaturally tinged suspense novel, Rubart (Rooms) crafts a credible legend: a "book of days" contains the past and future, and Cameron Vaux needs to find it. He's only 33, but his father, who died at 59 of dementia, instructed Cameron to find the book. Cameron's late wife, Jessie, who died in a small plane accident, also knew about the book. And now Cameron's own memory is slipping, lending urgency to his quest. He's joined in the hunt by Jessie's foster sister, Ann Banister, a TV adventure show host who's interested in finding out more about her family. The answers for both lie in Three Peaks, a scenic small town in central Oregon that's also headquarters for a New Age group headed by the commanding Jason Judah. Cameron and Ann come off as engaging and well-developed characters, but the constraints of Christian fiction make the New Age guru more caricature than character. Within those constraints, Rubart has created a page-turner. (Jan.) Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information.
