Beyond the Furthest Star by Bodie and Brock Thoene is a great story of young Anne Wells and her family.
Anne Wells has in her 16 years had better times than many and worst times than most girls her age. She is currently living one of her low times of spending time trading off with her mother sitting with her dad, the local pastor, who is now on life support in the local ICU and has been for the last two weeks. The ventilator keeping her father breathing reminds her of Darth Vader’s breathing. This story is Anne’s family story leading up to this point in her life. Anne and her family love each other and this is their story of how they learn to love and support each other and lean of the support and love of God.
I love this author duo so I expected to like this book and I sure was not disappointed in the story as written. It tells of how we as a society treat our children and then expect them to grow up ok. Our children are strong and flexible but they most of all need to know the love and unconditional support of their family and a strong background of love and belief in God.
I received this book for this review from Zondervan.
