My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This was a very unusual read. Unusual but brilliantly told.
Treha works in Desert Gardens Retirement Home for elderly people who suffer with dementia.
We soon learn that Treha has a gift, a beautiful gift where she uses it to clear the minds of others. But, Treha herself seems to have no past.
Treha we read a lot about. The residence too, however, some of the book lacked back up for me, as there were so many characters floating around in this story you got lost.
I love Chris Fabry's books and I loved this one, but it did take some brain work to keep up once I got past the first few chapters.
It wasn't a book I could easily pick up and put down either, I had to stay with it or I'd loose my place in my mind.
The story was different, not unenjoyable, but I would say it needs your undivided attention.
I was given this book to read by Tyndale House Publishers via Net Galley who I would like to thank.
Treha Langsam is a mysterious young woman who has fallen through the cracks, much like many of the elderly people she works with at Desert Gardens Retirement Home. But Miriam Howard, director of the facility, sees her extraordinary gift and untapped potential. Treha is a whisperer of sorts, calling those who have slipped into dementia back to a life of vibrant, if only temporary, clarity.When Treha's and Miriam's stories intertwine with a documentary team looking for stories of the elderly, Treha's gift is uncovered, and the search begins for answers to the mysteries of her past. As their paths converge, each person is forced to face the same difficult question: "What if this is as good as my life gets?"An uplifting, human tale of an ordinary woman with an extraordinary gift.
