If you read fiction for the resolution to conflict, you've got a while to wait in this novel. The innerpersonal conflicts that drive The Still of Night aren't resolved until three pages from the end.

Yep, this book and the fifteen years that preceded it in fiction land are one big valley. The characters didn't even realize the mountain top that could have been theirs if they had just surrendered.

But isn't this true in all of our lives? We hold on to what we shouldn't. We do things as we see fit. We care too much about pleasing others, and we neglect to acknowledge the One who makes ALL things new, in His time, in His way.

On this Thanksgiving day, I'm thankful for Christian authors like Heitzmann, who encourage readers to get in the Word, to remain faithful in the valley, and to hope for what's to come.
