My Review:
I received a free copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review.

John the Collector retrieves a ship that is washed ashore, everyone is presumed dead until he finds a body hidden in a compartment.  This is the story of Lilly Fields.  Lilly has been brought to be a witness, but more importantly, heal her heart and soul from the traumatic childhood she has endured.

William Paul Young takes a fascinating look at the days of creation and the fall of man.  He shows how easily we can turn from God, starting from a tiny inkling of doubt or feeling alone.  The story started off a bit confusing, but as you read on the story begins to come together.   It's filled with lots of heartbreaking moments as Lilly comes to terms with her past, so be sure to have your tissues ready.  All in all, a great story about trusting God's goodness and love through all circumstances.


About the Author:

William Paul Young was the eldest of four, born May 11, 1955, in Grande Prairie, Alberta, Canada, but the majority of his first decade was lived with his missionary parents in the highlands of Netherlands New Guinea (West Papua), among the Dani, a technologically stone age tribal people. These became his family and as the first white child and outsider who ever spoke their language, he was granted unusual access into their culture and community. By the time he was six, he was flown away to a boarding school.
