Treha Langsam is a mysterious young woman who has fallen through the cracks, much like many of the elderly people she works with at Desert Gardens Retirement Home. But Miriam Howard, director of the facility, sees her extraordinary gift and untapped potential. Treha is a whisperer of sorts, calling those who have slipped into dementia back to a life of vibrant, if only temporary, clarity.
When Treha’s and Miriam’s stories intertwine with a documentary team looking for stories of the elderly, Treha’s gift is uncovered, and the search begins for answers to the mysteries of her past. As their paths converge, each person is forced to face the same difficult question: What if this is as good as my life gets?
An uplifting, human tale of an ordinary woman with an extraordinary gift.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Tyndale House Publishers for the purpose of review. The review is my honest opinion and I was not paid for this service.
Every Waking Moment was a heart wrenching, but inspirational book. Chris Fabry pulls you not only into the book, but into the life of Treha Langsam. You literally feel everything that this woman goes through in her life. Despite the many things that happen to her, the message of God's love always envelops her. The author did a wonderful job of not only capturing my attention, but keeping it throughout the book. This was a book that was hard to put down. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and am looking forward to reading other books by Chris Fabry.
I recommend this book to anyone who loves a great read. This book will not only entertain you, but it will leave you with an important lesson as well.
I give this book 4 stars out of a total of 5.
