Has anyone read this book? It absolutely tore me up. I cried thru many of the parts. How close to home it comes when the lady has bitter regrets for passing up the opportunity to witness to her seatmate and then a tragedy happens. The emotions and situations are so real. I highly recommend it.

Nancy Moser is one of my favorite authors.  I loved this book, and it really spoke to my heart.  If you haven't read The Mustard Seed books by her, then you'll need to pick those up next.  All three are excellent (The Invitation, The Quest, and The Temptation).

Thanks for the suggestion Christy.  I haven't read anything by Moser yet.

Thanks, Christy. I haven't read those books yet. I am going to look them up and put them on my list. I was really caught up in The Seat Beside Me and if those books are as good as that, I can hardly wait to get them.

Pat, you won't be disappointed with the Mustard Seed series!!  A friend of mine recently read Time Lottery by her, and said that it was very good, too.  That one's on my shelf, and I need to get to it!  :o)

I have The Seat Beside Me on my tbr shelves, but I agree, Time Lottery was great. It really made me think.

On a side note, I read The Good Nearby and Solemnly Swear by her, and I didn't really care for either of them. They were both so filled with unbelievable coincidences that it made the books not very good. The Good Nearby was better than the other though.

I just posted a copy of Moser's Time Lottery if anyone is interested. It was really good.

There's a long waiting list for the Seat Beside me - I've been waiting for it for ages!

I also read "TIme Lottery" and liked it a lot.  It was very entertaining and thought provoking.
