"The author openly shares his inner turmoil with the reader. He writes beautifully and honestly about his struggles with his faith, his pain over broken relationships, and his search for the purpose of life and God's will for him. He expresses a hope and yearning for peace, joy, acceptance, and love. Isn't that what most people are looking for too after all? Relatable, thought provoking, and enjoyable...I recommend it."
"Real. Heartfelt. A journey for real substance in his faith. You can feel the struggle and the reward throughout. A great read!"
"Such an enjoyable read! I enjoyed the story line and where it takes you. You had to feel with the main character, Andre, what is right, wrong, and what is happiness. There was humor, love, tenderness, sadness, and dislike but Jeff keeps you into the story till the end. I really enjoyed the book and the end result was heart warming. Wonderfully written! I definitely recommend to parents, teen audience or anyone that enjoys sentimental or feel-good books. This is a book I am happy to pass down to my sons, my nephews and my grandsons when its time."
"Two words for you: Page-turner. Two more words: Love and hate. Calm and chaos. Then and now. Hope and despair. Redemption and damnation. Jeff LeJeune. Must-read!"
"Captivating. Inspiring. Pleasing. Exciting. Thrilling. Seductive. Dark. Gripping. I could go on. I was stunned and in awe. An emotional and heavy read, yet it was accessible and....real. I was fully immersed in the story. The characters and everything else was perfect. You can feel the passion and feel the sensuality. Amazing."
