MY REVIEW:  If you are not religious this book will be difficult to read and I would not recommend it. I normal do not read books about faith or religion.  And I found this book interesting to read because it told a story about how all these lost souls or people of different backgrounds ended up finding each other.  In the end they end up helping each other.  In itself even if you ignored the references about God you can still see how God and faith can truly change your life.

It was difficult to read at time because the plot would drift along. This story did not move a long or was fast pace but it was well told.  It need to be in slow pace to get the message the author was trying to convey to their readers. Over all I enjoyed this book.
