I Didn't Read This One

This week's Christian Fiction Blog Alliance Feature:

In High Places by Tom Morrisey

I've read a couple blog posts by Morrisey and I do like his style. I decided I'd try one of his books and this one came in the mail, however, I haven't got to it yet. I decided to post anyway because I think it might be good for some of my family members to pick it up since Uncle Ed's suicide is still so fresh in our grieving hearts.

For Patrick Nolan, every climb tells a story. And now maybe it's his own …. He's right at the rim, staring over the cliff's knife edge and wondering how things went wrong so quickly.

It all started after arriving home from a weekend climbing trip with his father, Kevin. That's when word reached them. In a silent moment, they'd lost the person most important to them—her death raising unanswerable questions and dangerous doubts.

Launching a new life in a new town to escape their pain, son and father find themselves in danger of being torn apart forever. As his father seeks a route to solace on the dangerous high face of the rock, Patrick finds a path to hope with the unlikeliest of allies—a pastor's daughter. Together they must discover the one answer that can bring Patrick and Kevin back from the brink of the precipice.

Hey Mich,

I know why you haven't gotten to it yet. Cuz it, um, went home with me. :)

Actually, I liked it fairly well. The end seemed to not carry the same thrust as most of the book, and rock climbing plays a major role in the book. I found it enjoyable, even if I did get lost in the technicalities occasionally. But if that kind of stuff doesn't thrill you, you might not like the book.
