What she discovers on the other side transforms everything about Sarah's view of life--past, present, and future.
When Sarah is revived, she is a changed woman. And the unsuspecting world around her will never be the same again.« less
Frankly, I couldn't stand Sarah. She's the selfish person who "blocks the box" at the intersection, complains at Starbucks when the line doesn't go fast enough to suit her and cuts you off on the street or highway at any opportunity. I really didn't care about her "redemption". Her "death" didn't change the way she thought, which was "me, first."
This book was just what I needed to read at the time I picked it up. I had no idea when I started that it was Christian fiction. The story is a modern day adaptation of "A Christmas Carol". And even though the story is an old one, the message is still a good one. Pass this one on to someone that might need to read it again.
Any Minute was a quick read for me in which I enjoyed. The story illustrates how many times it's our fears and insecurities that drive our behavior unbeknownst to ourselves. We assume we're just trying to be our best but in actuality we're attempting to make up for bad experiences in our childhood and prove to others that we're worthy-worthy of their love, admiration, and respect. That quest for Sarah almost resulted in her losing her family but through her accident she was able to turn herself around.
This is an excellent read. Life is always in a hurry, but any minute it can change; any minutes you can change. This book was very hard to put down. I do not think you will be disappointed with this book.
