Book Review: The Pages of Her Life by James L. Rubart




About the Book



Book: The Pages of Her Life

Author: James L. Rubart

Genre: Christian fiction – suspense 

Release Date: May 21, 2019


Award-winning and bestselling author James L. Rubart explores the way our memories shape us . . . and how they affect our beliefs.

Allison Moore has no idea why she got out of her car on that rainy March afternoon and picked up the soaked journal laying on the side of the road. Brought it home. But she did. It was empty. Except for two lines scrawled in the front, too washed out to read. And a Jesus emblem inside the back cover. Something about the journal compels her to start writing in it, capturing thoughts about her newly acquired job that she thought would be heaven, but has turned into hell. Then one day, she finds words in the center of the journal. Words she didn’t write: Mene mene tekel upharsin. After her heart stops hammering, Allison Googles the phrase, and reads the story of Belshazzar’s Feast, where a hand from God writes on the wall, and the king is slain. Fear grips her, certain God is coming after her for what she did twelve years back. What she’s done wrong her whole life. She vows to make things right. Then she discovers more phrases appearing underneath each of her journal entries. Those phrases take her on an emotional roller coaster that forces her to look at everything she believes about her past in a new light, and opens her eyes to a supernatural realm of staggering consequence.

My Review

Who are you really?  Are you living with authenticity to who God made you to be?  The Pages of Her Life by James L. Rubart explores these deep questions.  The mystery genre of this book is what interested me. I am an avid reader but I tend to choose realistic novels with no supernatural elements.  This book is such a unique novel.  Yes, it is a mystery, and yes, it has supernatural elements.  But I was blown away at how well the supernatural elements were incorporated into the story and felt realistic and powerful as a result.  Mr. Rubart is a phenomenal writer with deep story themes that will resonate with readers of many ages and backgrounds. I loved the way the story included characters from Mr. Rubart's other novel Rooms. It definitely made me interested in reading that novel as well.  This is the first novel I have read by this author but it will not be the last.  I highly recommend it! I received a digital copy of this novel from the publisher with no obligations. These opinions are entirely my own.
