The Pages of Her Life Reviews

  • Paula  Phillips

    As a Christian writer, I have always enjoyed James Rubart's books as they touch on the supernatural side of miracles. In The Pages of Her Life, we meet Alison who is about to discover that her mother's life isn't as rosy and happy as she had imagined and that in learning about her mother's demise it will set her life on a completely different track that will change it eventually for the best, though it won't appear so for a wee while. She will go through trials and tribulations. The story starts

    As a Christian writer, I have always enjoyed James Rubart's books as they touch on the supernatural side of miracles. In The Pages of Her Life, we meet Alison who is about to discover that her mother's life isn't as rosy and happy as she had imagined and that in learning about her mother's demise it will set her life on a completely different track that will change it eventually for the best, though it won't appear so for a wee while. She will go through trials and tribulations. The story starts when Alison learns of her father's debt that he lumbered her mother with after he died, she then prays to God and is offered by an old friend an opportunity to become a partner in his architecture firm. She accepts but as life will have it, it isn't what she had imagined, and she will learn that her so-called friend's experience of integrity is built on a pile of lies. One day at a coffee shop, she is handed a gift. A journal with a leather bound cover and a picture of the Tree of life on the cover. That journal Alison will soon discover is a gift from an angel, and as Alison writes in it, the words change and as she goes on a journey to learn the truth about the journal. She will be opened up to the world of God speaking to her through the written word. I liked this book as writing and journalling is somewhat a passion of mine and having a journal where God speaks through to you- would be a fantastic gift to be given. One of my favorite things about The Pages of Her Life was that we were reunited with Micah , Sarah and the mechanic Rick who featured in James Rubart's earlier book "Rooms" If you love edgy Christian fiction and authors like Ted Dekker and Randy Alcorn, you will enjoy James L. Rubart and his book The Pages of Her Life.

    While undergoing tremendous life challenges, Allison receives a beautiful leather journal as a gift from a stranger.

    As Allison pours out her heartache in the journal, the unexplainable occurs.....written messages appear overnight in response to her journal entries. Is it a supernatural intervention, as her mother believes? Words of hope and strength appear in the mysterious journal.

    Allison’s fearful words are changed into bold statements of faith; yet oddly, her life struggles continue. What is she missing?

    Allison, her mother, and her long lost brother Parker are facing enormous financial challenges as well as other unmet needs carried over from the past.

    Parker and Allison could never measure up, in their father’s eyes. Now their mother is struggling with a mountain of debt her husband has left behind, evidence of a double life he had hidden from her.

    An exploration of the lies we believe about our identities, and the transformation that is made possible by truth.

    A truly heartwarming novel that is sure to leave you with a smile and feeling blessed.

    I received a digital ARC from Thomas Nelson and NetGalley in exchange for my honest opinion.

    Rubart has the unique skill of imagining possible ways God might work in a person. Each of his novels is an adventure in seeing God and his angels busy in the transformation process. In this one, a mysterious journal helps the main character, Allison, see her true character and who God wants her to be. A secondary character is her brother. God uses a stint on a fishing boat in Alaska to expose his character and cause transformation. Several issues are covered in these two stories, including livi

    Rubart has the unique skill of imagining possible ways God might work in a person. Each of his novels is an adventure in seeing God and his angels busy in the transformation process. In this one, a mysterious journal helps the main character, Allison, see her true character and who God wants her to be. A secondary character is her brother. God uses a stint on a fishing boat in Alaska to expose his character and cause transformation. Several issues are covered in these two stories, including living up to parental expectations and seeking parental approval, knowing one's own worth, “religious” and phony Christianity, and a few more.

    This novel is character driven. There is no driving plot. In fact, it took me a while to get into the story. The strength of the novel is found in the character revelations and transformations and the bold actions that come from them. I would not call this book a page turner but when I got to the end I was so glad I read the book. There is a great deal of thought provoking content included.

    I received a complimentary egalley of this book through Celebrate Lit. My comments are an independent and honest review.

    Her father whom she loved so dearly has a secret and his secret left her mother in great debt. Then while trying to help her mother she is given a journal that makes her question everything she once knew.

    I didnt bond with the characters and I felt as though there was character development missing and just an overall introduction to what was happening. We sort of just start and I didnt feel like I was brought into the story correctly...

    Thank you so much to Thomas Nelson via netgalley for sending

    .

    (I received a complimentary copy of this book from Thomas Nelson through NetGalley. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.)

    I firmly believe, as Allison's mom said in the book, that, "God hasn't lost his power of creativity. He can still reach people in extremely unusual ways."

    Thus it was disappointing that a character like Allison, who was so obviously searching for more, was instead constantly told to look deep inside herself to find "a strength inside her that she’d never known and yet had always known."

    Allison's brother was given the same advice: "All you needed to do is see what has always been inside you."

    reminds us, “There’s a vast difference between religion and Christianity." A character says, "We’re talking about a God who can create a universe so vast we cannot comprehend it, a God who makes blind eyes see. This is a God who raises people from the dead, a God who makes lame men walk. You think he isn’t capable of putting things in motion to change a word or two in an ancient journal?”

    After those statements, it was disappointing to be left with this anti-climactic answer to Allison's problems: "...there was one thing that could never be shaken. One thing that was as everlasting as eternity. And it was at the core of her being. She was a warrior. Had always been one. Would always be one. And it was time for her to breathe life back into that warrior. Time for the bones to grow flesh around them. Time for flesh to rise and come alive. Time to banish fear from her heart, her mind, her soul, and allow the Spirit of truth to be her strength. Time for her to fight again. Time for her to be Allison Moore."

    Her brother's life answers were no more promising: “I’m starting to know who I am. Live from the deep part of me that’s been there all along, I just didn’t know it. And it turns out that person has worth. More than I knew.”

    Romans 3:10 tells me, "As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one." Luke 18:19 says that no one is good except God alone.

    Without Him, I can do nothing. It is only in Christ that I can do all things (Philippians 4:13). My salvation is not my own doing: it is only by His grace (Ephesians 2:8). 

    Ephesians 6:10-18 commands me to be strong in the Lord, in His mighty power; to put on the full armor of God.

    Galatians 2:20 tells me that if I am crucified with Christ, it is no longer I who live, but Jesus Christ who lives in me.

    I was waiting for that truth to be revealed in

    . It felt anti-climactic to be pointed to something "at the core of my being," told to live based on my own self worth.

    In the words of the hymn, it's "Naught of good that I have done, nothing but the blood of Jesus."

    I wish 

     had written into Allison's story the "mystery" of Colossians 1:27 that is Christ in us, the hope of glory.
