The Reason by William Sirls This book is no less than amazing. I couldn't put it down and be ready to have the tissues in hand. The story takes place in a small town in Michigan where a blind pastor, his loyal wife and mentally challenged adult son attract a family of misfits by their faith and kindness. But a stranger in town, a carpenter working a the local hospital, comes to town and suddenly everyones world is turned upside down. Miracles start to occur after the church's cross is mysteriously fixed in a manner of seconds. Those who never have believed before are suddenly believers. It is hard to describe to much as not to give it away but this book is nothing short of spectacular. I think I was impressed just as much by the author's story at the end of the book as I was the story. I really can't recommend this book enough. If you are struggling with the things of life or if life seems without hope. This books is for you. Yes, it is fiction but it brings the message of God's hope loud and clear.......as the theme of the story says....."only believe". I received this book free of charge for Booksneeze. I was in no way obligated to give it a good review!
