It is on my WL and has been since July...I'm number 10 now so I'm getting there!  :)  Do you know if it is going to be part of a series or is it a stand alone title?

I was suprised at how big it is when I got it from the library... but it's worth every page!

I'm pretty certain it's a stand alone title.  And it's nothing like any of the other Jerry Jenkins books I've read before.

I have it in my stack ready to read - I have 2 others I am supposed to read first, but I don't have one of them yet so maybe I can sneak this one to the top of the stack :-)  I just finished A Constant Heart by Siri Mitchell so I have to start on another good one to keep my attention :-)

Wow - just finished it!  It has one of the most powerful endings to a book that I have ever read!

I can't wait to read this book. All the endorsements are making me even more anxious to get this book. Hopefully it won't be long since I'm number 2 on the wishlist. = )

His books always seem to keep you on the edge of your seat.  Some books are good, but then there are the books that you just can't wait to get back to so you can see what is going to happen next.  His book are like that.  There is a childrens series that he wrote also.
