When five strangers find themselves drawn together without really knowing why, they watch out a window as a message of "Hope is dead" is broadcast across New York's Times Square. These five soon realize why they were brought together. Together, this group of believers formulate a strategy that takes them up against one of the corporate giants in America. Will they be successful in presenting a message of hope?
This book reminded me a lot of a series I read years ago. I can't even remember the name of the series or the author, but the way that this was written reminded me of it.
To be honest, I wasn't too interested in the book as it started. I didn't know how the threads were going to be connected or fleshed out. Yet I hung in there. I enjoyed watching the way each of the five started to use gifts they had been given and to trust God to do the rest. Short chapters made this book a true page turner.
I loved how they fought to present a message of hope being alive and well. I found that to be one of the best themes of the book.
I received this book for free from River North publishers for the purpose of reviewing. My thoughts and opinions are my own.
Recommended to fans of Frank Peretti's Prophet, The Shack, contemporary fiction
Rating - 3.5 stars. I enjoyed it, I just wasn't too interested in it til late in the story.
