So here is the setting. It is 2088. Missionary Abigail Caldwell leaves from New Guinea to help fellow villagers, who have come down with a mysterious disease. While the villagers can not be saved, Abigail, the sole survivor travels to America where she discovers that Christianity has died out. As she investigates the death of her grandfather who was the co-inventor of a silicon brain replacement, she discovers a message he left for her tasking her to bring the Christian Faith back to America.
I know, right?
A little bit more sci-fi to this book then I would normally read, and trying to keep up with the thought of the invention of brain transplants to keep the human race living forever – was a bit mind-boggling. And that is with my original brain I was born with. The point of course was to eliminate death all together, but at what cost?
While parts of the books were a bit too sci-fi for me, I was able to complete the book. David Gregory writes a fast paced novel that even the parts that made me go “huh?” were soon surpassed by a feeling of “oh yeah!”. The book filled that craving I have of a good mystery, suspense book that keeps me guessing. While sci-fi is certainly not on my genres to read list, I was still able to move beyond all the technical futuristic (admitting I had to skim some of these pages) and coming out the other side finding this an interesting read.

Cover Story: I think the cover is a good fit, it represents the feeling of isolation and has a sci-fi feel.
I received this book from review from Waterbrook Multnoman Publishing
