The Reason

The ReasonThe Reason by William Sirls

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

“When facing the impossible, will you believe? Storm clouds gather over a small Michigan town. As thunder shakes the sky, the lights inside St. Thomas’ Church flicker — and then go out. All is black until a thick bolt of lightening slices the sky; striking the church’s large wooden cross – leaving is ablaze and splintered in two. When the storm ends, the search for answers begins.”

This is the first novel from this author – William Sirls – and I have to say that I quite enjoyed the book as it takes you in right from the first page. There are twists and turns throughout the story that will keep you involved in the lives of these characters. This is fine Christian fiction with a great message that does not come off as preachy in any way. Mr. Sirls is a very good writer and I am looking forward to reading his next book.

Sensitive readers need to be aware that within the plot is the story of a small child diagnosed with a terminal disease. Though redeemed, there is a lengthy description of the child’s final passing which, for me, was difficult to read.
