This particular book appealed to the linear side of my brain. His progression was so logical and made such sense. I loved how he blended the fact-based person with the faith-based person to bring about change in both of their lives.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I'll keep it and read it again.
The plot is riveting. The main character, Miriam, is destined for a life of brutality and loneliness. Her entire life has been planned for her from the moment of birth and she has absolutely no say in what befalls her. In fact, objections of any kind are a sure death sentence. Women in her culture are nothing more than objects whose sole purpose ...more

Clive smiled. “I don’t know, should I?”
Actually, approaching the matter from a purely logical perspective, yes. All the evidence points to the existence of a creator. The single greatest body of evidence is the dismal failure of man’s desperate attempts to come up with a reasonable alternative, beginning with evolution. I’ve always looked at the universe and seen a creator as plainly as most people who look at the ocean see water.”
