This is the first book I've read by this author. While my husband is not lost in the wilderness, we are in a very difficult place right now. Maybe that is why I so connected with Libby. I walked with her each step of her emotional journey to find her husband. I laughed and cried along the way, and rejoiced as she found her way back to her Lord. I would highly recommend this book to others. No matter where you are in your spirtual life, I believe you will see a bit of yourself on its pages.
I can't imagine anyone being sorry they read this!

I find it difficult to come up with adequate words that lead to adequate sentences to describe this book. As I turned the last page, it left me wanting to read the book again and again! It stirs up within me emotions, mystery, real life thoughts, and real life scenarios that I can't get away from.
I thoroughly enjoyed each and every character and felt as a Christian book it wasn't "cheesy"in the least, but deep enough to challenge and stir one on to greater depths of relationship with God. It caused me to reflect on my current relationships with others and consider how I might be hindering or encouraging these relationships.
Last but not least, the hike through the woods, the canoeing, the water, campfires and road trip...all these beautiful pictures of nature where well written and very satisfying to my senses! Well done Cynthia!
I had trouble putting this book down, the story was so captivating. I loved the Christian base but never felt it was overplayed or sappy. I am delighted to have read this book and look forward to more material from Cynthia!
