  • Publisher: Tyndale House Publishers (August 16, 2013)

  • ISBN-10: 1414348630



  • “Our stories intertwine in ways we can’t know when we first hear them. And maybe the point of all this is that we’d do well to listen.”

    Treha Langsam is a mysterious young woman who has fallen through the cracks, much like many of the elderly people she works with at Desert Gardens. But Miriam Howard, director of the assisted-living facility, sees her extraordinary gift and untapped potential. Treha is a whisperer of sorts, calling those who have slipped into dementia back to a life of vibrant, if only temporary, clarity.

    When a documentary team stumbles onto Treha’s story, her gift is discovered and the search for answers about her past begins. As the truth slowly unravels, Treha and those around her must each tackle a difficult question: if this is as good as life gets, is that enough?

    With authentic characterizations and riveting prose, bestselling author Chris Fabry delivers an uplifting, human tale of an ordinary woman with an extraordinary gift.

    My Review:

    I thought this was an okay Contemporary Christian fiction book. The characters and the plot were interesting. It was a little confusing at times. The chapters switch back and forth from the documentary and present action. The story was also told from several point of views. Treha was a little hard to connect too. I instantly liked Miriam and how she cared for the facility. The main plot focus was on Treha. Who was she really? How did she come by her gift? What happened to her family? The conclusion was satisfying.
