Every life is a story. Schuyler Hunt is about to come face-to-face with the author of his.

When a planned getaway with his wife turns into a shopping trip for the girls, Schuyler Hunt finds himself looking for something else to do. An ad for a vacation cottage catches his eye, and he sets off in search of a much-needed break. When he arrives, he finds something far different from the typical summer home experience. In fact, he may have found a little slice of heaven.

The proprietor-along with a number of unexpected and yet familiar guests-welcomes him with food, rest, and conversation, until what started out as an escape from everyday life turns into something much, much more . . .

“There is a real world all around us. We taste and feel it every day. There is also another world where God dwells and those who have gone before us live with Jesus. Dann Stouten helps us discover that these two places intersect more than we often notice. If we pay close attention, we just might see, smell, and learn to taste the goodness of a world beyond this one.”-Kevin Harney, author of Reckless Faith

My Thoughts:

I didn’t really care for this book. It was a little too farfetched for me to be inspirational at all. It’s not like anybody can go to a cottage that looks similar to one that you went to when you were a kid, come back to when you’re older and it’s turned into a part of heaven where you can actually be with those you have lost in the years before.

I was looking forward to this book but am now quite disappointed. I hope that you want be though if this is the kind of books you’re interested in.
