Summary
Six-year-old Missy Phillips is abducted during a family camping trip. Her blood-stained dress was found in a shack in the Oregon wilderness, but her remains were never located. Four years later Missy's dad, grief-stricken Mac, receives a suspicious note inviting him back to the shack. Mac decides to go and discovers that the shack has been transformed into something lovely. Mac has been invited to spend a weekend with the Trinity, a weekend of healing, rest, assurance and confrontation.
Critique
A disturbing story with an interesting premise. A thought-provoking novel, perfect for book discussion led by a knowledgable theologian.
