Publisher's Description

When the dollar collapses, widespread rioting and looting threaten the peace of a family in Zanesville, Ohio. Eight children tragically lose their parents in the chaos. The oldest, 19-year-old lovesick Sophie, is forced to care for her defenseless and hungry siblings in a stretch of woods surrounded by lawless anarchy. Their father has been killed, and their mother and Adam, Sophies fiance, have gone missing. Running out of food and facing threats from encroaching marauders, they are tempted to doubt Gods love. When Sophie discovers her fiance has resorted to looting to survive, she cannot bring herself to forgive him, however hard he tries to make amends. Must he sacrifice everything to win her back? When they capture a thief, they learn the attack on their home was no random act of violence. Torn between justice and mercy, with their allies turning against them, their faith is heated in the fire. Will God answer their prayers and deliver them, or must their faith remain blind to facts?

    Normally I try to think of words that will not only flow but do justice to the book. Not this time. This will be one of my rawest reviews on a book. And if I could give a book more than 5 stars, this would be the book to have a 5+ star rating.

    I couldn't find a single thing that I didn't like about this book. The writing and flow was seamless, taking me down a journey that wouldn't let up. I had to keep turning the page to see what happened. The author's use of flashbacks were masterfully executed. I have never read a book that could handle flashbacks so smoothly.

    The emotional impact was strong. I would get mad at a character. Sometimes I just wanted to fuss and yell at Sophie or Jimmy. I would want to wring their necks; then I find myself cheering them on, hoping against all odds that things go their way.

    That's a sign of a good story. One that hooks the reader, reels the reader in, and then captures the reader until the very last word is read.

    Sophie and Jimmy's character arcs were superb. Even the younger children's growth could be seen. And what happens with Jack was surprising. (Don't know Jack? Read the book! Well worth the surprise Jack has in store for the reader.)

    There were twists to the story line. Just when I thought it would end, something happens that spurs the story down another path. Just when I thought the kids were going to let evil and sin get the better of them, love shines through....and always in an unexpected way.

    The faith element was heavy, but not unnatural. This is a family defined by their faith so it makes sense that it is their faith they cling to in times of trouble. Hard questions are confronted. There were no easy, sugar coated answers. It was an in your face, honest, and raw reality that the characters had to endure.

    Scary thing about this book is that any day could be like what they had to experience. Our country is always on the precipice where one wrong move will send our world into a freefall.

    As I read The Reliant, the theme of forgiveness and relying upon God is ever present, expertly woven throughout the chapters.

    I look forward to seeing the movie. Yes, that is right: The Reliant will soon be a major motion picture.

    I am extremely happy that I had the chance to read this book and I will definitely shelve this novel as a keeper.
