Product Description

What if you were losing your most treasured memories? Of your wife who passed away, of your dad who died far too young? What if you heard of a book whaere all of those memories are recorded and you could get them back? And what if this book also told your future? Would you believe it? Would you go on a desperate search for it, holding onto a strand of hope it would bring healing and answer all your questions?

Young Cameron Vaux's mind is slipping. Memories of his wife, killed two years earlier in a car accident, are vanishing just as his late father predicted they would. Memories he knows are critical to remember. But his only hope for answers, and a cure, seems to lie in search for a book--and a God--he doesn't believe in.

Publisher's Description

"… 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."

Colleen Coble, best-selling author of The Lightkeeper's Bride

"Book of Days is actually better than Rubart's best-selling debut, Rooms . . . a terrific story that is equal parts fast-paced thriller, thought-provoking allegory, and moving drama."

Rick Acker, author of When the Devil Whistles

"James L. Rubart is officially now one of my favorite writers. Book of Days is a great read, why people buy novels."

Dan Walsh, award-winning author of The Unfinished Gift

"Rubart has created a page-turner."

Publishers Weekly

"Well crafted and full of plot twists and turns. It will appeal to fans of Ted Dekker."

Library Journal

"Rubart is one of my favorite new authors . . . a master storyteller with his second release as good as or better than Rooms, his debut release."

Examiner.com (Seattle)

"Rubart is one of my favorite new authors. His writing is poignant, his characterizations skillful, and his plotting incredible."

Author Bio

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.

Publisher's Weekly

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.

    This review was written for Book of Days - eBook.
    The book's major themes of dealing with memory loss, forgiveness and seeking the Lord are woven throughout; the main character is cast well as an appealing protagonist.

    However, the New Age/American native influences in the book are never fully refuted and becoming acceptable to God is portrayed as a mystical experience which has no basis in Christ's death, burial and resurrection. One is left with feeling that the book could have been written by any well-meaning, uninformed seeker.

    Book of Days was interesting in a totally Rubart sort of way. What I mean is that the mind-twisting content reminded me of Rooms, his first book. Now whether or not the third book, The Chair, has the same feel...we'll see. Regardless, I found myself enjoying the story. At first I was thinking, "where is this all going?" and "When will they decide what they want to do?" I enjoyed the flashbacks of Cameron's time with Jessie. I found that heart-wrenching and beautiful. I also found the history between him and Ann quite interesting, as well as Ann's connection to the whole story. Taylor was a bit of a mystery and I wasn't sure what to think of him for a long time. Jason was plain creepy. I disliked him in every sense of the word. The twist at the end was quite good. I found it believable. I also found myself smiling when things wrapped up.

    The concept of the story was pretty deep. It's about choosing to love, choosing to forgive, and choosing to let go of the past. All of those things relate to the Book of Days in the story. I won't say how. Just know that it's true. I enjoyed the fact that the story revealed something we all need to remember...to have true peace you need to walk in the "light" of truth and in the present. You can't hold even a shred of unforgiveness in your heart, or it will keep you from true freedom. That was nicely woven into the plot. All in all, this is a book that makes you think about relationships and choices. While it did drag out in a few parts, overall, it was a compelling and insightful read. I'd recommend it to anyone who likes to ponder life, it's meaning, and spiritual things. This book won't disappoint.

    James L. Rubart ran to the top of my favorite authors list this week. After reading both Rooms and Book of Days, I find myself astounded by his story-telling. His descriptions inspire me. I enjoy phrases like "something about you crumbled his Oreos" on nearly every page. His wordsmithing is refreshing, like ice cold sweet tea on a hot summer's day.

    Both novels are deep, searching, and thought-provoking. They challenge a believer to reflect on their faith, to look for a deeper relationship with God. And for the unbeliever or the doubter, Mr. Rubart writes in such a way that one can relate to his characters' stories without preaching a sermon to them.

    In Book of Days, we meet Cameron Vaux. Cameron already lost his wife and his father, and now he thinks he's losing his mind. Afraid of what that may mean, he decides it's time to go on a journey to look for some answers. His wife and father asked him to search out an ancient book upon their deathbeds. Either they were both crazy, or the book is real. Will Cameron be able to find it before he forgets them altogether?

    James Rubart weaves an intriguing tale of Cameron's search for the Book of Days. Filled with obstacles and characters who don't want to reveal secrets hidden for decades, Cameron faces many challenges during his quest. Several secrets remain untold until Cameron nears the end of his journey. Filled with gripping suspense peppered with subtle hints, one will not find closure until the final chapters.

    This is one of the first books I've read where I've been tempted to skip ahead a bit in search of answers to the questions each chapter brings.

    I also enjoyed the movie and music references throughout the story. Being a lover of both, they assisted in my ability to relate to the characters.

    A perfectly engaging read, I highly recommend Book of Days. I enjoyed every second of reading it. I'd also encourage you to pick up a copy of Rooms. Mr. Rubart will not disappoint.
