What if You Woke up One Morning and the Darkest Parts of Yourself Were Gone?
Toren Daniels vanished eight months back, and his wife and kids have moved on—with more than a little relief. Toren was a good man but carried a raging temper that often exploded without warning. So when he shows up on their doorstep out of the blue, they’re shocked to see him alive. But more shocked to see he’s changed. Radically.
His anger is gone. He’s oddly patient. Kind. Fun. The man he always wanted to be. Toren has no clue where he’s been but knows he’s been utterly transformed. He focuses on three things: Finding out where he’s been. Finding out how it happened. And winning back his family.
But then shards of his old self start to rise from deep inside—like the man kicked out of the NFL for his fury—and Toren must face the supreme battle of his life.
In this fresh take on the classic Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, James L. Rubart explores the war between the good and evil within each of us—and one man’s only chance to overcome the greatest divide of the soul.
My thoughts and giveaway:
What a deeply spiritual and moving book.
There are so many underlying meanings going on. I was probably looking too much but I couldn’t help myself.
I wondered how this relationship could ever be restored, Sloane seemed so unwilling to move. Yet, I appreciated her prayer life and how she relied on God.
I felt a lot of sympathy for Toren and wanted him to get his family back. But James kept the reader wondering and guessing if that would happen.
And then the whole mystery of what happened to Toren in the first place, where was he all those months and what happened to him?
If you are looking for something a bit different but that will move you I highly recommend this book.
