Book Review: Gather Sticks Along The Way by G. Tyler Mills

Gather Sticks Along the Way
G. Tyler Mills
Kindle Edition 


Summary: When God commanded Abraham to carry Isaac up the mountain, the boy was told by his father to gather sticks to build an altar. With each piece he gathered he unknowingly contributed to his own sacrifice. But before the blade would fall an angel of God would appear. The entire parable hinged on Abraham's faith in God's plan and his determination to carry it out with his own hands.

Charles is an average man. He has a loving family and is solid in his own beliefs. But his faith is soon tested with the loss of his son and Charles becomes a man driven by the need for answers. He needs to know what happened to his child and is prepared to do anything to find out. As simple actions by multiple individuals begin to unfold, a tragedy is formed and Charles is caught in the middle. Throughout it all he knows he is not alone. He knows God is with him. As Charles begins to see signs of what he believes to be the truth behind his son's disappearance, he's unsure if these come from God or if they are just coincidences. Is it his vengeance that propels him or is he just doing God's plan? His faith will either see him through this catastrophe or cause him to lose all he has left.

Excerpts From the Book:
"As the sun began to set on the home Charles sat quietly in the front foyer looking out the window. Ann sat on the front porch looking right and left still half expecting to see small feet carry a little boy around the corner. One phone was clutched in her left hand and her cell phone rested in the other. Charles looked through the window at his wife. Images and thoughts raced through his mind as to what or where the boy could be. He pushed the thoughts aside, bowed his head, and prayed to God that solace would be swiftly found. It never came." -excerpt from Chapter 10

"He took a shower, longer than his normal scrubbing and slid into his side of the bed. He thought for only a moment about how he could have carried out such malicious acts and have the ability to close his eyes, but as soon as he tried his exhaustion took hold. His mind quickly began to shut down and his last attempt at consciousness was the annoyance of the quill from the feather pillow piercing into his cheek." -excerpt from Chapter 23 

My review:
This book is about a family: Charles(who is a pastor), Ann(his wife), and Chuck(their son) who go through a tragedy when their 5 year old son disappears while walking home from a neighbor friend's house. Throughout the book the family deals with life while their son is still missing with no leads and then Charles learns of a registered sex offender who recently moved into the neighborhood and forged his signature. This causes Charles to put a plot together and into play to get answers and revenge for his son. But then his son is found and Charles has already changed his life forever! HUGE cliffhanger ending that leaves you wanting MORE!!!! Great Book and a Great Story line!!! Very anxious to read the next book!!!!
