Wow!! This was an amazing story. I have read one other of Chris Fabry's book and was impressed with that one and this book is on the same level. The story of a young girl hurt by a test drug that should never have been tested on humans. She possessed the special gift of reaching out to those who had been abandoned as old and unwanted in society and drawing them out and giving them life. Two amateurs document her life and the stories of the elderly in a fascinating documentary. Just an incredible story of forgiveness, redemption and making the best of your circumstances.
I did wind up enjoying this book, although at the beginning I was not very interested in it. I was not really curious about Treha until I got to the part where she reads Dr. Crenshaw's letter. The ending was okay, but it seemed like it needed something more. Like what happened to the characters after that.
This is the fourth Chris Fabry book I've read, and it's my favorite yet. The writing was so polished, and I found the story interesting. You don't read many books where the main character is disabled and overweight. But you watch her overcome the pain of her past and develop some self-esteem. The other main characters are in a nursing home, and I really felt like I was there with all those old, forgotten people. Very sweet and insightful story for all ages to enjoy.
Every Waking Moment is one of the most powerful books I have read in a long time. It's a beautiful story of inner beauty. I love Treha. She has such a wonderful gift with people. I love how everything comes together and figure out how the book got its title at the end. What a great, inspiring and powerful read. It's worth every bit of 5 stars if not more.
Treha works at a nursing home. She is very gifted in getting patients who have dementia come back to life. Treha was abandoned as a child and therefore has a few issues of her own. When a documentary team comes to the nursing home, some of Treha's secrets are uncovered. This book was okay. It was a little hard to get into but it wasn't bad.
