The Pages of Her Life

About the Book

Book: The Pages of Her Life  
Author: James L. Rubart  
Genre: Christian fiction – suspense  
Release Date: May 21, 2019  

Award-winning and bestselling author James L. Rubart explores the way our memories shape us . . . and how they affect our beliefs. Allison Moore has no idea why she got out of her car on that rainy March afternoon and picked up the soaked journal laying on the side of the road. Brought it home. But she did. It was empty. Except for two lines scrawled in the front, too washed out to read. And a Jesus emblem inside the back cover. Something about the journal compels her to start writing in it, capturing thoughts about her newly acquired job that she thought would be heaven, but has turned into hell. Then one day, she finds words in the center of the journal. Words she didn’t write: Mene mene tekel upharsin. After her heart stops hammering, Allison Googles the phrase, and reads the story of Belshazzar’s Feast, where a hand from God writes on the wall, and the king is slain. Fear grips her, certain God is coming after her for what she did twelve years back. What she’s done wrong her whole life. She vows to make things right. Then she discovers more phrases appearing underneath each of her journal entries. Those phrases take her on an emotional roller coaster that forces her to look at everything she believes about her past in a new light, and opens her eyes to a supernatural realm of staggering consequence.

My Thoughts:   What would you do if someone gave you a journal that changed your words after you wrote and spoke directly to you?   This is what happened to our main character Allison.  This was an enjoyable read, about one woman and her brother and how their memories formed who they were in their lives.  The memories of their father's lack of approval affected them throughout life and in relationships.  

Journaling is a wonderful way to talk to God and to see how He works in our lives.  This journal that is given to Allison is extraordinaire!  With the changing entries that she sees in her journal, Allison is able to see who she really is and how loved and important she is to herself and those around her.   

There are lessons to be learned in this novel;  we really do need to look deep inside ourselves, checking our character to see if it stands up to what God wants us to be and turn to God in difficult situations.  Trust God, listen for what He has for you in life.   

I loved the concept of this novel. The author has done a wonderful job of putting this story together.    The characters were very true to life and easy to connect with.  The storyline was flowing and a fast read.   I truly enjoyed this book and  I look forward to reading more from James L. Rubart.
