IreneUnited States4 Stars Out Of 5Fans of the author will enjoy this bookSeptember 2, 2015IreneUnited StatesQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4It is always better to tell the truth. This book shows how a lie about an accident affected the main characters life for years. The story itself is slow to get into but the depth of the characters helps make it interesting. I thought the conversations and details were excellently written. I did however, have to put the book down a few times and come back to it to make it through. It was just a bit slow for my taste but still a good story. I would recommend the book to anyone looking for an in-depth look at how guilt from the past can make your life better or worse. I would also recommend the book to any fans of this author as this book was better then his last!
I would like to thank the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.

babeHenderson, NVAge: Over 65Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Thought provokingDecember 1, 2014babeHenderson, NVAge: Over 65Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4Discussed this book in a Book Club and group felt it an ok book. Not up to "The Choice" level, but still a book worth reading. "The Chair" brings out how Christians can be so critical, if it is a situation they have experienced. "The Chair" also brings out that confession and restitution is God's way. The group felt the non-Christian was the one person who showed the main character true love.
