The book ‘Here’ written by Jennifer Ball draws you into the young lives of Joshua and Abigail, as well as those of their friends and families.
Both live life to the fullest, but Joshua’s choices leave Abigail shocked at times. He loves and lives wildly, whereas Abigail respects herself and others.
As the story progresses you become familiar with their inner thinking; and you might momentarily baulk at some of the activities Joshua feels are acceptable. Women are to be used and discarded. He follows in his father’s footsteps with this mentality until one day a seed is planted which changes his life forever.
Abigail, meantime, happily grows into young adulthood with her values and morals intact. Her family always maintained healthy lifestyles, and she benefits from this solid stable upbringing.
Follow them in this somewhat enigmatic story, and watch what happens as they are each led along different pathways, only to discover God’s sense of humor really has no bounds, as He ensures their lives intertwine.
Joshua and Abigail’s personalities and social activities are poles apart but it takes just one change to bring order into Joshua’s life. He never looks back.
The writing still needs some major editing, but it is an intriguing look into the youth of today, and, you will get swept up into the tale, in spite of this.
I found myself looking to correct the text as I read; this did not distract me from the content, but it would read more smoothly with corrections applied. Good effort, Jennifer.
I was given this book free of charge, in exchange for an honest review.
