Publisher's Description

Michael Landon Jr. and Tracie Peterson--a Winning Team!

After his dreams of being a WWII flying ace are dashed, Joe settles for a dead-end job, crop-dusting his neighbors' farms and finishing out the evening slouched at the bar in the local tavern. One morning Joe's usual crop dusting routine turns into something else entirely when his beat-up Stearman begins a long spiral toward dearth...

Joe doesn't die that mroning, but he begins an odyssey whose twists and turns head him back toward life, love, and true devotion.

One More Sunrise by Michael Landon, Jr. and Tracie Peterson takes a look at what it might be like to have a special visitor next door. What would happen if a rural community was touched directly by a messenger from God? How might that look? How would people’s lives be changed?

Joe Daley is the pilot of a crop duster in rural America. He has a wonderful family, but he remains detached from almost every aspect of their lives. His disappointment in dreams that failed to materialize and depression about his past drive him to the bar every Saturday night. A sudden, enigmatic brush with death makes Joe realize things have to change. That’s not as easy as it may sound. Joe still struggles with feelings of jealousy over one of his wife’s high-school suitors, a man who makes a sudden reappearance. But when a mysterious stranger, a visitor from God, drops in, Joe finds his life inexplicably altered.

Angels are difficult characters in Christian fiction from all ages. I couldn’t help but notice as I read that Michael Landon, Jr. seems to travel, perhaps a bit too closely, in the footsteps of his father with the writing of this story. There’s a strange sort of kinship between this book and Michael Landon, Sr.’s popular television series of the ‘80s, Highway to Heaven, as well as a rather heavy-handed effort to sell a trite brand of Christianity that seems to allow everything in Joe’s life to make a complete, utter turnaround after he has an encounter with an angel.

In spite of this, the characters in this book are relatable, and the setting is very secure in the small-town countryside. Readers from similar areas in the U.S. will find their own communities mirrored somewhat in this setting. Conversations are lively and keep the story flowing. Despite its flaws, the book does demonstrate some good writing.

The writing style is engaging and keeps the reader turning pages. However, many of the plot points are predictable and obvious. Moreover, the difficulties that come with dealing with angels in fiction become very evident, and theology suffers. Looking past those issues, however, readers who want a light, touching story will find a good one in One More Sunrise. – Lyndi Markus, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
