Awakening, A review.
"Awakening" is a book by Claudia Cangilla McAdam. The book is published by Imagio/Catholic Fiction, which is the fiction division of Sophia Institute Press. Sophia Institute Press publishes quality Catholic books. Calaudia Cangilla McAdam writes children's books. I would not have purchased this book if I had seen it in a bookstore. The cover reminds of those Christian almost romance novels for young girls that I see in bookstores. This book is probably written for teen and pre-teen groups of young people. It is not the type of book I read. Sophia Institute sent me a free copy to review. I thought, "why not", I have yet to be disappointed with one of their books. I started the book Saturday morning, it was a rainy day, and finished it Sunday evening. It was not a long read. I enjoyed the book. A young person, Ronni, is transported to Jerusalem, the Wednesday after Palm Sunday. Her friends and relatives are followers of Jesus. She is able to see historic events unfolding before her eyes. It is a very interesting book. It made me think of those events and to wonder how I would have reacted if I were able to go back in time. It is a good read and I would recommend the book.Sophia Institute Press sent me a complimentary copy of this book for me to review.
