The Restorer by Sharon Hinck
I've been meaning to read Sharon Hinck's book, The Restorer, for quite some time. The cover alone drew my interest. What's not to like about a woman carrying a sword? Plus, I had heard great things about it and I've talked with Sharon on the phone on a different matter. She's such a sweetheart. I do not consider myself a book reviewer but I will briefly describe the plot. Imagine yourself a somewhat complacent, bored housewife who is tired of the day to day drudgery of raising kids and keeping a house. Now imagine yourself being wisked away through a portal to a completely different world and thrust into the middle of a war of kingdoms. And as if that weren't daunting enough, you discovers that you are the long awaited Restorer, the one who will defeat the enemies, unite the people and bring them back to the Verses. Wow. Okay, count me in. But this isn't just an adventure story. Intertwined within its pages are themes of God's love, the power of His Word, Faith, family and the battle between good and evil. I really enjoyed this book, and I'm willing to give up my only (slightly used) copy to any brave soul who comments on this posting. Just leave your name, and email address and I'll enter your name in a drawing. I'll announce the winner on Saturday.
