The Reason by William Sirls

Every page you turn will make you yearn for me. I would day that every other page was a surprise with plot twists and much suspense. Anyone that says The Reason is predictable didn't quite understand the story, or they skipped pages. William Sirls created characters that any reader can connect with. As a mother, I connected with Brooke. She has the same struggles and joys as all mothers have and one can only hold their breath as her story unfolds. I can unashamedly admit that I cried when I read the novel: tears of sadness and tears of joy. Again, just as a mother does. I also connected with Macy. She is a doctor who, like most of us, can't seem to relinquish control to God. While reading, I was reminded that I am not in total control of all situations (truth be told, no situation). The Reason will give all readers a reason to rethink their goals and what makes a person truly successful if only the truly believe.

Great review of a fabulous book. I enjoyed it--especially the characters, who are very authentic and real. I love when stories give you spiritual insights into the very things you’re struggling with. The Reason made me really think about some deep questions—why does God seem to answer some prayers but not others, what is the nature of healing, why do bad things happen to good people? I recommend it!

The Reason was, to me, reminiscent of "The Shack". It was a "take your breathe away" story that kept my turning pages and putting the book down and picking it up right away.

Glad you like it, as well.
