    This short novel carries a punch that delivers a shattering realization into your heart and mind that man suffers and God's people scarcely understand the suffering of the individual.

    Joab's Fire is set in the very early 1900's in Alberta, Canada. Sergeant Dixon of the North West Mounted Police respects the main character, Joab Black and his wife Sarah Black, for their upright living, generosity, and faith. They are a prosperous family until disaster delivers rapid fire death and destruction at their doorstep.

    Others in the community of faith, seek to "comfort" and "console" Joab and Sarah in their troubles. But like the comforters of Job in the Bible, they prattle on about Joab's probable sin and unrighteousness being the cause of his calamities and his just recompense for hidden sins.

    Sergeant Dixon is concerned about a visitor to the community that seems to wile his way into the minds, hearts, and lives of the residents of this isolated Canadian community. The visitor says, ".... my scientific observation has consistently revealed that anyone blessed by God with plenty will inevitably turn against God, should it all be taken away." (p. 48)

    But too many details will spoil the story for you. The parallel of Joab's Fire with the Biblical book of Job is interesting, and a good Bible study can evolve using the guidelines author Lynn Squire has provided.

    From the pen of Lynn Squire comes the powerfully moving tale that parallels the Biblical book of Job, Joab's Fire. Joab Black, a righteous man, in the eyes of God and his community, and his wife Sarah, establish a prosperous farm in Alberta, Canada, in the year 1903. Then in one sweep, Joab and Sarah, lose everything, except one another. In the midst of his intense pain and tremendous loss, Joab regrets the day he was ever born, but refuses to lose his trust in the sovereignty of God. Although his wife urges him in her terrible state of grief to curse God and die, and his friends wonder what sin he has committed to bring this on himself, Joab never loses his faith in God.

    Sergeant Dixon, a Mounted Police officer, is determined to get to the bottom of these horrendous events that have happened to his friend, Joab, feeling a stranger's arrival in town has something to do with them. In his search he finds more than he bargains for...pride, stubborness, brokeness, and bitterness in his heart against God. Who is this stranger and why does he exude such evil, but has the power to attract the townsfolk? What hold does he have over Dixon? In the midst of all the turmoil will Dixon find love with a Godly woman and peace for his soul?

    In this powerfully moving, thought provoking novel, Lynn Squire seeks to answer the question, "Why do bad things happen to good people"...and why are God's children alllowed to suffer? Lynn sheds new light on the book of Job and what it must have been like for his wife, who we are so quick to judge for her words that were spoken in the throes of grief. I was moved to tears at the restoration power and mercy of God at the conclusion. This is not normally the type of book I read, as I'm into the whole historical fiction, romance thing, but I feel I'm a better person for having read this book. A more thankful person...a blessed person! Thank you, Lynn Squire, for this beautifully written, anointed book, and for staying true to your calling!

    As Joab Black and his family are ravaged with loss upon loss, Sergeant Dixon, a Northwest Mounted Police officer, searches for clues as to who would cause this family to suffer so much tragedy.

    When Abbadon, a stranger to the town of Surbank, charms the community and spreads rumors, Sergeant Dixon sets off on a journey to prove him guilty. But before he can nail him with murder, arson and theft, Dixon discovers Abbadon's journal accusing him of his life's sins. Knowing that all of his secrets are in that book, Dixon has to decide whether to keep pursuing Abbadon or come to grips with his past.

    Lynn Squire pens a perfect point of view that exposes the struggle hiding in us all- secrets we lock inside our hearts. But with that revelation, she makes known the key to unlocking ourselves from guilt and condemnation.
