it was amazing

This book will linger with me for a long time. It compelled me to stay up late and get up early to delve into the story of Peter, a man chosen to travel vast distances from Earth to minister to an alien race, the Oasans. Peter leaves behind his wife, Bea, on an Earth that is spiralling toward apocalypse. Peter and Bea's only tether is their love and faith and their words, shared in urgent messages conveyed via 'The Shoot'.
