Every February my family and I spend a few days in a cabin in the woods. We usually do a lot of hiking during the day and play games at night, but this year the weather didn't cooperate. And even if it had, most of the trails were closed due to an ice storm that wreaked havoc on the area a couple of weeks ago. Since I couldn't explore, I did the next best thing. I curled up in front of the fire with a book, Gallimore by Michelle Griep. And oh...what an adventure I had.
Jessica Neale has never recovered from her husband's death. She's dealt with her pain by building walls, and it's time for those walls to topple. The problem is, they're really thick and won't be breeched by conventional means.
What she needs is a handsome medieval knight, an evil lord, ticked off king, an innocent page, and God. Of course, to get four of these five she has to do a little time traveling.
Gallimore was a blast. I read it in two days. Besides entertaining me with action, romance, intrigue and humor--it moved me with its message of Grace. And, it posed an interesting question; to what lengths would God go to get our attention?
I think the answer is; whatever it takes.
I know I can be hard-headed, but I don't think I would require something as extreme as Jessica's experience. Just in case though, I'm going to stock a fanny pack with soap, toothpaste and a tooth brush, travel shampoo, and a change of underwear to keep with me at all times. This will make sense after you read the book.
Oh yeah! Deodorant.
Thanks for the adventure Michelle. I hope you'll write a sequel.
