The Pages of Her Life: By James L. Rubart

I received this book from Celebrate Lit Blogging Program and the author for no charge in exchange for my honest review of this book. The opinions expressed here are my own.

Book Description: 

 Allison Moore is making it. Barely. The Seattle architecture firm she started with her best friend is struggling, but at least they’re free from the games played by the corporate world. She’s gotten over her divorce. And while her dad’s recent passing is tough, their relationship had never been easy.
Then the bomb drops. Her dad was living a secret life and left her mom in massive debt.
As Allison scrambles to help her mom find a way out, she’s given a journal, anonymously, during a visit to her favorite coffee shop. The pressure to rescue her mom mounts, and Allison pours her fears and heartache into the journal.
But then the unexplainable happens. The words in the journal, her words, begin to disappear. And new ones fill the empty spaces—words that force her to look at everything she knows about herself in a new light.
Ignoring those words could cost her everything . . . but so could embracing them.

My Thoughts: 

The Pages of Her Life is the latest book by James L. Rubart and it blew my mind it was so good. I am a fan of James L. Rubart and I have to say this has to be my favorite book from him. This book is a Biblical Fiction story, which is a genre I am very selective about reading. I have a few authors that I read that write these types of books and James L. Rubart is one of the few. I love the cover of this book, very ominous and makes you want to read it. James L. Rubart writes with authority on architecture, running a business, the Bible, Biblical prophecies, secrets and their effects of them, loan shark business, journalimg,, doing what you can do family, and speaking the truth to the dry bones. 
I found myself unable to put this book down once I started it. I enjoy James L Rubart's style of writing, he puts his readers right there in the thick of it, seeing things from the different characters. 
All of the characters in this book are well written and well developed. They felt like real people dealing with real life situations. I found myself drawn to Allison. I can relate to her on many levels. Her journey is admirable, as is her spirit. I loved how God showed her the right path and that she and her brother both were impacted greatly by God and His love. I cannot say enough good about this book. It is one that will stay with me. It impacted me on many levels and I find myself thinking on these things quite frequently since finishing the book.  I highly recommend this book and author to anyone who enjoys Biblical Fiction or Christian Fiction, you will NOT be disappointed. I cannot wait to read more books from James L. Rubart. I give this book 5 STARS.

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.
