Almost Heaven by Chris Fabry Blog Tour

Billy Allman barely survived the flash flood that swept through his holler, taking many a life. Truth be told, it took his daddy's life, too. Daddy's body kept living after the flood, but his mind never left the waters that snatched two little girls from his arms and held them until they were in the loving arms of Jesus.

The only thing Billy saved was his daddy's mandolin and it is his ability to make that instrument sing that God allows to bring about Billy's destruction...and his ultimate redemption.

Chris Fabry is the host of Chris Fabry Live!, an hour of spiritual encouragement from his backyard radio fence. The program challenges listeners to think biblically about their spiritual journeys. Chris is also the author of the Christy Award-winning novel Dogwood, and his latest fiction release, June Bug. He and his family live near Tucson, Arizona.

MY THOUGHTS-This was my first time ever to read a book by Chris Fabry. And I was interested in this mainly because of the story of the angel. I like reading books that show the warfare and spiritual side of life. I also liked the mandolin as I play instruments and love them.

I had kind of a hard time getting into the story. I guess the whole book was hard to stay reading. Maybe I am used to other styles of writing but I almost quit reading the book halfway through. Which is not normal for me. I normally finish a book easy and don't often have a hard time. The story did get a little more interesting in the end but still not the type of book I would normally pick up and read. I did like the parts showing the angel guarding his man. Overall this book was good but just not my type.

Thank you to LeAnn for sending me a copy of this book for review purposes. I did not receive any monetary compensation.

I really enjoyed this one. Just thought your readers might like to know that Amazon.com is giving away its Kindle version of this book as a freebie. How neat is that!
