Product Description

Treha Langsam is a mysterious young woman who has fallen through the cracks, much like many of the elderly people she works with at Desert Gardens Retirement Home. But Miriam Howard, director of the facility, sees her extraordinary gift and untapped potential. Treha is a whisperer of sorts, calling those who have slipped into dementia back to a life of vibrant, if only temporary, clarity.

When Treha's and Miriam's stories intertwine with a documentary team looking for stories of the elderly, Treha's gift is uncovered, and the search begins for answers to the mysteries of her past. As their paths converge, each person is forced to face the same difficult question: What if this is as good as my life gets?

Publisher's Description

A 2014 Christianity Today Award of Merit winner from the best-selling author of War Room!
Devin Hillis is a struggling documentary filmmaker who stumbles onto the story of a lifetime while interviewing subjects at an Arizona retirement home. One of the employees—a seemingly ordinary young woman named Treha Langsam—has no family and little memory of her childhood. She does, however, possess an extraordinary gift for connecting with dementia patients. Even more gripping is the story that begins to unravel when a cryptic letter from one of the home’s residents reveals clues to Treha’s shrouded past, setting into motion a chain of events that captures national interest.

    Treha lives in her own little world at times. She knows she's different. Her eyes constantly move, she types on an unseen keyboard I her lap, and she has an ability to reach into the hearts and souls of those others can't reach.

    When Devin and Jonah come into the nursing home where Treha works while filming their documentary, is when her life takes a turn she never expected.

    The characters in this book were well developed and a great contrast and complement to each other.

    Christ Fabry is a new-to-me author, but I'm glad I've found him. This book had a completely different plot line than the books I've read lately. As I read, I couldn't guess where the story was going. When I first began reading, I thought the story was going in one direction, but I was wrong.

    Great book that kept me reading from the first word!

    Not as good as his other books

    I find that I really like Chris Fabry's writing style. His other books were more interesting to me, however. He asks non-traditional questions that many writers don't address. In this case, his question (which he refers to in the afterword) is "what if this is as good as it gets?" I think the hardest thing for me was that it really didn't have a Christian theme to it. The storyline was interesting, but I wouldn't necessarily classify it as Christian Fiction. That said, I would recommend Chris Fabry any day, but start with at least one of his other books before this one.

    I thoroughly enjoyed Every Waking Moment by Chris Fabrys. I found it to be a smoothly written, well put together story about the personal worth of everyone. I found myself reading fast to see what would happen, while at the same time wishing I wouldn't get done so fast. An excellent read.

    Every Waking Moment was a captivating story set at Desert Gardens Retirement Home. Its primary theme centered around the value of each person's story, especially the elderly and outcasts in today's society. It was thought-provoking in having me examine my opinions of the value of these people, both on a personal level and at a societal level. It had well developed characters and a bit of mystery to add to the story line.

    My main complaint about the book centers on its classification as Christian fiction. There were a couple of Bible readings and prayers mentioned in connection with services, and in one place it mentioned a character reading her Bible. Late in the book one character announces, "You all know I'm a Christian." I'm glad she told me, because there was very little indication of it up to that point. I'm pretty sure the name of Jesus is not there at all. No character is portrayed as having a life of prayer or worship. We could probably better label this Social Justice fiction, but I don't think such a category exists.

    Overall, an engaging, thoughtful story. If you don't want to be offended by Christianity, this would be a great choice.
