First off I would like to express my thanks and deep appreciation for the gift of this book in exchange for an honest review. I would guess that the author may be surprised to know I am an atheist :O So I will start off by saying I recommend this book to Christians ;) Its the story of an ordinary guy named David Martin who ends up in a town called Spring River after an accident. There, he meets a waitress and finds out that many of the locals are about to face serious money problems. People are faced with decisions big and small in life, so some believe that we need to submit to God's Will in all things. The story tries to explain why God's will for us can be such a mystery and that you don't need to wear yourself out trying to figure out the "mysteries" of life. Overall, a good read & touches on life's major subjects in a positive light.
