To Set A Prisoner Free Dec 31, 2007
I love good fiction, especially good Christian fiction from authors such as Lynn Austin and Francine Rivers, but this was definitely not my favorite. The story in itself is a good one, but the author spent far too much time and space in the technical details of sailing to keep me interested. It's not a long, arduous book, but it often felt like one. I would have been satisfied with about half of the technical information and siginificantly more character development.
We loved it! Sep 14, 2007
I could relate to the way the character hadn't forgiven God. I especially liked the dialog the main character had about the girl - not understanding what was different about her. It was the love of God shining through her. We recognize it, but we work hard not to admit that is what we are seeing. God had abandoned him in his eyes, but he also knew in the deepest part of his heart that it was God he needed back in his life. (My husband's review.) As for me, I thoroughly enjoyed being swept out to sea for this adventure and discovering that God is there, in the most remote of situations. I loved how the author portrayed that God's sweetness can be found even in those we think we have lost through illnesses we don't understand.
Great page turner! Apr 1, 2007
I read the whole book in one sitting! The characters were believable and I could relate to them. I learned a lot about boating and the sea, too. I hope he writes another book soon!

This author creates an uplifting story that would be enjoyed by Christian and non-Christian alike. I thoroughly enjoyed the book.
Sail away into a great story Jan 31, 2007
One of my students gave me this book for Christmas. What a delightful read! If you aren't a sailor, get ready to be immersed in the lingo. This book does have a Christian message, but it is not preachy, nor is it trite. The main characters are very real and intriguing. The plot development keeps you turning the pages, faster as you go.
