James Scott Bell has written a twist-turning tale of three individuals all on a course into destruction or redemption. To tell to much of this story would give it away, but let's just say that the greed for diamonds will lead down a path of deceipt that snowballs so much, you'll wonder how it will all end. The character of Liz Towne reminds me of the classic character in Steinbeck's East of Eden, Kate, who will follow her sinful desires at the cost of anyone as well as her own soul. The ending was unexpected and you'll definitely will find yourself reading to the end. The grace of the Gospel can certainly be found too and it is an important aspect of the story. Buy this riveting tale and enjoy.
I read this book for our church's book club. I can't say I liked it much. I didn't care for any of the characters, except Mac, and even then he wasn't that likeable. I thought the ending in particular was lame. I won't give away the ending, but it sounded to me like the author didn't quite know how to wrap up the tale. Not at all what I expected.
