This is the third and final day of the blog tour for The Restorer. I intended to write blog posts all three days (because it really does deserve that much attention), but I recently took a job delivering newspapers. I have to get up between 2:00 and 2:30 am each morning and thus I go to bed between 7:00-8:00 pm. And I don’t have much time during the day.
Anyway, on to the book review. The Restorer is about a normal housewife, Susan Mitchell, who has the “blahs”. Everything is mundane and she’s lost enthusiasm for her role as wife and mother. She somehow gets sucked into another world where God has made her “The Restorer”. Figuring out what that means and what she’s supposed to do brings her closer to her Lord and helps her learn more about herself.
The book sucked me in right away. In fact, when I read the back cover and found that it was about a housewife, I immediately thought “COOL!!” and started reading right away. I couldn’t put it down.
Here are a few things I loved about the book:
Susan is a housewife (can you tell I can really relate to this heroine???)
The poison is actually “mind-poisoning” instead of physical poisoning (this relates to my life so much when I listen to the lies of the enemy!)
She continues to long for her husband throughout the book…she doesn’t even feel attraction for anyone else
She really struggles with her role and feeling like she can do what God has called her to do
If you want exciting, well-written summer reading, get this book! I can hardly wait for the sequel to come out in October!
